Everyday life : theories and practices from surrealism to the present by Michael Sheringham( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last twenty years the concept of the quotidien, or the everyday, has been prominent in contemporary French culture and in British and American cultural studies. This book provides the first comprehensive analytical survey of the whole field of approaches to the everyday. It offers, firstly, a historical perspective, demonstrating the importance of mainstream and dissident Surrealism; the indispensable contribution, over a 20-year period (1960-80), of four major figures: Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, Michel de Certeau, and Georges Perec; and the recent proliferation of works that investigate everyday experience. Secondly, it establishes the framework of philosophical ideas on which discourses on the everyday depend, but which they characteristically subvert. Thirdly, it comprises searching analyses of works in a variety of genres, including fiction, the essay, poetry, theatre, film, photography, and the visual arts, consistently stressing how explorations of the everyday tend to question and combine genres in richly creative ways. By demonstrating the enduring contribution of Perec and others, and exploring the Surrealist inheritance, the book proposes a genealogy for the remarkable upsurge of interest in the everyday since the 1980s. A second main objective is to raise questions about the dimension of experience addressed by artists and thinkers when they invoke the quotidien or related concepts. Does the 'everyday' refer to an objective content defined by particular activities, or is it best thought of in terms of rhythm, repetition, festivity, ordinariness, the generic, the obvious, the given? Are there events or acts that are uniquely 'everyday', or is the quotidien a way of thinking about events and acts in the 'here and now' as opposed to the longer term? What techniques or genres are best suited to conveying the nature of everyday life? The book explores these questions in a comparative spirit, drawing new parallels between the work of numerous writers and artists, including André Breton, Raymond Queneau, Walter Benjamin, Michel Leiris, Maurice Blanchot, Michel Foucault, Stanley Cavell, Annie Ernaux, Jacques Réda, and Sophie Calle."--Publisher's description

Traversées du quotidien : des surréalistes aux postmodernes by Michael Sheringham( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4e de couv.: Le << quotidien >> est une notion-clé dans la littérature, les sciences humaines et les pratiques artistiques des XXe et XXIe siècles. Les mouvements d'avant-garde, surréalistes orthodoxes (Breton, Aragon) et dissidents (Leiris, Queneau), ainsi que les philosophes (Lukács, Heidegger) se sont penchés sur la vie quotidienne. Par la suite, quatre figures majeures, Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, Michel de Certeau et Georges Perec, dont les intuitions et approches s'entrecroisent, proposent des manières de penser et d'explorer le quotidien qui ont inspiré et approvisionné la prolifération d'œuvres qui aujourd'hui encore s'attachent à sonder l'expérience quotidienne. Cet ouvrage retrace cette mise en perspective historique tout en apportant une réflexion originale sur la nature d'un concept difficile à cerner. Par le biais d'une approche comparatiste et d'analyses approfondies d'œuvres diverses (fiction, poésie, photographie, etc.), Michael Sheringham établit de nouveaux liens entre les œuvres de nombreux artistes et écrivains, parmi lesquels Raymond Queneau, Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Annie Ernaux et Sophie Calle. Il propose ainsi la première vue d'ensemble des diverses approches et champs d'application de cette notion de << quotidien >>

Baudelaire and schizoanalysis : the sociopoetics of modernism by Eugene W Holland( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of Baudelaire's writings applies the principles of schizoanalysis to literary history and cultural studies. By resituating psychoanalysis in its socio-economic and cultural context, this framework provides an illuminating approach to the poetry and art criticism of the foremost French modernist. Professor Holland's book draws upon and transforms virtually the entire spectrum of recent Baudelaire scholarship and demonstrates the impact of the capitalist market and its attendant authoritarianism (as well as Baudelaire's much-discussed family circumstances) on the psychology and poetics of the writer, who abandoned his romantic idealism in favour of a modernist cynicism that has characterized modern culture ever since

A question of syllables : essays in nineteenth-century French verse by Clive Scott( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr Scott argues that only by attending to the precise locations of words in line or stanza, and to the specific value of syllables, or by understanding the often conflicting demands of rhythm and metre, can the reader of poetry acquire a real grasp of the intimate life of words in verse with all their fluctuations of meaning, mood and tone. The analyses through which the book pursues its argument address two principal concerns: the way in which syllabic position projects words and colours their complicated and challenged by the relationship of rhythm to metre

French Renaissance tragedy : the dramatic word by Gillian Jondorf( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principle aim of this 1990 book is to encourage readers to find pleasure in sixteenth-century tragedies. To this end, Gillian Jondorf examines a range of plays (all accessible in modern editions) in two ways. She suggests, by means of comparisons with other works, that techniques such as allusiveness need be no more forbidding in humanist tragedy than in, say, Racine or Lamartine. She shows how other features, such as characterization, structure, and the use of Choruses, become not only comprehensible but satisfying when the guiding theme or idée maîtresse of a play has been identified and its organizing principles understood. Dr Jondorf argues that these plays should be seen not as pardonably clumsy experiments by the first practitioners of a genre, but as competent works which display skilful deployment of technique in the service of dramatic aims which are, in the broadest sense, didactic. French Renaissance tragedy has too often been treated, even by its defenders, merely as a staging post on the road that leads to Corneille and Racine. This book corrects that perspective

Politeness and its discontents : problems in French classical culture by Peter France( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a 1992 study of writing of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, mainly in France, but also in Britain and Russia. Its focus is on the establishing and questioning of rational, 'civilized' norms of 'politeness', which in the ancien régime meant not just polite manners, but a certain ideal of society and culture. Within this general context, a series of familiar oppositions, between polite and rude, tame and wild, urban(e) and rustic, élite and popular, adult and child, reason and unreason, gives the initial impetus to enquiries which often show how these opposites interpenetrate, how hierarchies are reversed, and how compromises are sought. Polite society, like polite literature, needs and desires its opposite. The ideal is often the meeting of garden and wilderness, where the savage encounters the civilized and gifts are exchanged. Professor France points to the centrality, but also the vulnerability, in classical culture, of the ideal of 'politeness', and his discussion embraces revolutionary eloquence and enlightened primitivism, the value of hyperbole, and the essay as a form of polite sociability
