L'ailleurs de l'autre récits de voyageurs extra-européens by Claudine Le Blanc( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in French and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si, comme l'écrivait Proust, " le seul véritable voyage, le seul bain de jouvence, ce ne serait pas d'aller vers de nouveaux paysages, mais d'avoir d'autres yeux, de voir l'univers avec les yeux d'un autre ", la lecture des récits de voyageurs extra-européens n'est-elle pas une prodigieuse occasion de découverte, encore trop négligée? En réunissant les contributions d'historiens, de linguistes et de comparatistes, les auteurs ont souhaité ouvrir ici une réflexion sur la façon dont, hors d'Europe, à l'époque moderne, on a voyagé, et relaté ses voyages. Qu'il s'agisse de récits de voyages dits inversés, accomplis au temps des empires coloniaux, d'expériences de dépaysement dans le parcours du pays familier, ou de déambulations d'un continent à l'autre telles que le xxe siècle les a multipliées, les relations des voyageurs d'Asie, d'Amérique ou d'Afrique donnent à voir d'autres images, subtilement décalées, du monde, de la modernité, de l'Occident, et confrontent le lecteur européen à une mise en scène distanciée de sa pratique viatique, dans des récits où c'est, cette fois, un autre qui parle de l'autre
Odette Toulemonde by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A French romantic comedy concerning an unlikely relationship between two Parisians, Variety called ODETTE TOULEMONDE "A Charmer! An adorable slice of magical realism that thumbs its cinematic nose at the intelligentsia." The title character (Catherine Frot) is a forty-year-old saleswoman, saddled with two children (an adolescent daughter and a hairdresser son), who spends her days hawking cosmetics from behind the counter of a Parisian department store. Odette has absolutely no reason to feel limitless joy or to retain a bright, positive outlook on life, but experiences both - thanks in no small part to the novels of her favorite author, Balthazar Balsan (Albert Dupontel). Meanwhile, Balsan ostensibly has everything - money, fame, success - and yet feels unbridled emptiness inside. These two lives suddenly intersect and complement each other in fantastic and unexpected ways
La France en Chine, 1843-1943 by Jacques Weber( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in French and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The imperial rescript of 1839 punishing trafficking opium and closing the port of Canton, making it only accessible to Devils of the West, caused the first Opium War. Defeated, China had imposed treaties and with them territorial concessions. Year after year, civilians, diplomats, soldiers and missionaries lived to the rhythm of ups and downs of a great country shaken by uprisings and revolts of the fall of the empire and the instability that followed. The imposed Western presence ended with the Japanese occupation and humiliation it inflicted. The French diplomatic and consular archives help revive these hundred years of vicissitudes of the history of China

LA CENTRALISATION DE SON ADMINISTRATION, LE SACRIFICE QUI LUI EST IMPOSE DE SON PROPRE DEVELOPPEMENT ECONOMIQUE AU PROFIT DE CELUI DE LA METROPOLE, LA PRUDENCE DE LA POLITIQUE INDIGENE QUI Y EST SUIVIE SONT CARACTERISTIQUES DE L'ANCIEN REGIME. A PARTIR DE 1852, L'INDE S'OUVRE AU DIX-NEUVIEME SIECLE. C'EST PARADOXALEMENT UN GOUVERNEMENT PLUS AUTORITAIRE QUE LES PRECEDENTS QUI REALISE LES REFORMES FISCALES, AGRAIRES ET SOCIALES ATTENDUES DEPUIS DES DECENNIES. LA LIBERALISATION DES TARIFS DOUANIERS, LES PROGRES DE LA NAVIGATION ET L'ESSOR DE L?'EMIGRATION INDIENNE CONTRIBUENT EGALEMENT A TIRER LA COLONIE DE SA LETHARGIE ET A LUI CONFERER UN ROLE NON NEGLIGEABLE DANS L'OCEAN INDIEN.

Don Juan by Jacques Weber( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Don Juan est un géant blessé dès le départ, il a épuisé sa vie, brûlé ses dernières cartouches, comme le héros de Malcolm Lowry dans Au-dessous du volcan. Don Juan, c'est ce consul qui va au rendez-vous inéluctable de la mort, en quelques jours, en quelques heures. La fin reste ouverte, et il est très important qu'elle le reste. Je ne connais d'ailleurs aucune pièce de Molière qui n'ait pas une fin ouverte et ambiguë. Molière mélange le tragique et le comique, ce qui est le genre même de la comédie. Mais je crois surtout que ce film est très proche du type des contes et légendes. Il y a quelque chose de légendaire dans le récit, une légende mise en film, et aussi une errance méditative." Jacques Weber. --
