Fairy tales for the disillusioned : enchanted stories from the French decadent tradition by Gretchen Schultz( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wolf is tricked by Red Riding Hood into strangling her grandmother and is subsequently arrested. Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella do not live happily ever after. And the fairies are saucy, angry, and capricious. Fairy Tales for the Disillusioned collects thirty-six tales, many newly translated, by writers associated with the decadent literary movement, which flourished in France in the late nineteenth century. Written by such creative luminaries as Charles Baudelaire, Anatole France, and Guillaume Apollinaire, these enchanting yet troubling stories reflect the concerns and fascinations of a time of great political, social, and cultural change. Recasting well-known favorites from classic French fairy tales, as well as Arthurian legends and English and German tales, the updated interpretations in this collection allow for more perverse settings and disillusioned perspectives--a trademark style and ethos of the decadent tradition. In these stories, characters puncture the optimism of the naive, talismans don't work, and the most deserving don't always get the best rewards. The fairies are commonly victims of modern cynicism and technological advancement, but just as often are dangerous creatures corrupted by contemporary society. The collection underlines such decadent themes as the decline of civilization, the degeneration of magic and the unreal, gender confusion, and the incursion of the industrial. The volume editors provide an informative introduction, biographical notes for each author, and explanatory notes throughout. Subverting the conventions of the traditional fairy tale, these old tales made new will entertain and startle even the most disenchanted readers."--Jacket
An anthology of nineteenth-century women's poetry from France : in English translation, with French text( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women poets in nineteenth-century France made important contributions to major stylistic innovations - from the birth of elegiac Romanticism to the inauguration of free verse - and many were prominent in their lifetime. Yet only a few are known today, and nearly all have been unavailable in English translation. Of the fourteen poets of this anthology - the third bilingual volume in the MLA series Texts and Translations - some were wealthy, others struggled in poverty; some were socially conventional, others were cynical or defiant. Their poems range widely in style and idea, from Romantic to Parnassian to symbolist." "Gretchen Schultz, author of The Gendered Lyric: Subjectivity and Difference in Nineteenth-Century French Poetry, provides literary history and biographical notes to show the crucial role women played in nineteenth-century French poetry and to explain why they were criticized and - in the creation of the canon - often eclipsed."--Jacket
Sapphic fathers : discourses of same-sex desire from nineteenth-century France by Gretchen Schultz( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing this phenomenon through poetry (Baudelaire, Verlaine), erotica and the popular novel (Belot), and literary fiction (Zola, Maupassant, Péladan, Mendès), and into scientific treatises, Schultz demonstrates that the literary discourse on lesbianism became the basis for the scientific and medical understanding of female same-sex desire in France. She also shows that the cumulative impact of this discourse left tangible traces that lasted well beyond nineteenth-century France, persisting into twentieth-century America to become the basis of lesbian pulp fiction after the Second World War."--
