Allegories of reading : figural language in Rousseau, Nietzsche, Rilke, and Proust by Paul De Man( Book )

28 editions published between 1979 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through eleavorate & elegant close readings of poems by Rilke, Proust, Nietzsches and the major works of Rousseau, de Man concludes that all writing concerns itself with its own activity as language, & language, he says, is always unreliable, slippery, impossible...Literary narrative, because it must rely on language, tells the story of its own inability to tell a story.... De Man demonstrates, beautifully & convincingly, that language turns back on itself, that rhetoric is untrustworthy. --

Romanticism and contemporary criticism : the Gauss Seminar and other papers by Paul De Man( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume assembles for the first time material written by Paul de Man between 1954 and 1981, including his previously unpublished Gauss Seminar lectures delivered at Princeton in 1967, three papers on romantic and postromantic issues, a commissioned essay on Roland Barthes, and two substantial responses to papers by Frank Kermode and Murray Krieger. Romanticism and Contemporary Criticism represents de Man's reflections on some of the major texts of English, German, and French romanticism and their reception in twentieth-century literary criticism and theory. The Gauss Seminar lectures in particular convey de Man's consideration of romanticism as a distinct form of historical consciousness and illuminate his conviction that this romantic historical consciousness had been a powerful influence on our own development of a historical identity. De Man had planned to use the Gauss lectures as a basis for a major historical study of romanticism, but the volume was never completed, and de Man eventually abandoned the project. Drawn from four decades of de Man's career, these essays reflect the transition in the critic's work from the thematics and vocabulary of "consciousness" and "temporality" characteristic of his work in the 1960s to the language-oriented concerns and terminology of his later writings

Madame Bovary : contexts, critical reception by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Madame Bovary," his story of a shallow, deluded, unfaithful, but consistently compelling woman living in the provinces of nineteenth-century France, Gustave Flaubert invented not only the modern novel but also a modern attitude toward human character and human experience that remains with us to this day. One of the rare works of art that it would be fair to call perfect, "Madame Bovary" has had an incalculable influence on the literary culture that followed it

Allegories de la lecture : le langage figuré chez Rousseau, Nietzsche, Rilke, et Proust by Paul De Man( Book )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une herméneutique qui, selon D. Hollier, s'intéresse non à la psychologie de l'auteur, mais à la structure intentionnelle de l'oeuvre. La conception de la lecture par De Man, "austère, abstraite", doit beaucoup à Mallarmé (et au Mallarmé de Blanchot). Le nom de l'auteur, très connu aux Etats-Unis, est associé à la critique déconstructrice
Selected poetry by John Keats( Book )

12 editions published between 1966 and 1988 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the moment of 'self-will' when he declared his intention to be a poet, Keats (1795-1821) had chosen the medical profession. His medical training influenced his conception of poetry as an art that could mitigate the world's suffering. Keats's generous spirit triumphed over personal sadness, finding expression in his concept of life as a 'vale of Soul-making' rather than a vale of tears. He died at the age of 25, having published three volumes of poetry; while many of his contemporaries quickly recognized his genius, snobbery and political hostility led the Tory press to vilify him

Theory and the disappearing future : on De Man, on Benjamin by Tom Cohen( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul de Man is often associated with an era of 'high theory', an era it is argued may now be coming to a close. This book, written by three leading contemporary scholars, includes both a transcript and facsimile print of a previously unpublished text by de Man of his handwritten notes for a lecture on Walter Benjamin. Challenging and relevant, this volume presents de Man's work as a critical resource for dealing with the most important questions of the twenty-first century and argues for the place of theory within it. The humanities are flooded with crises of globalism, capitalism and terrorism
