Mapping memory in nineteenth-century French literature and culture by Andrew Watts( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Memory and memory studies have shaped a major site of humanities research over the last twenty years. Examined by ethnographers, archaeologists, social scientists, historians, economists, archivists, art historians, and literary scholars, the theme of memory - individual memory and memoir, collective memory, official memory and oral memory, cultural memory and popular memory - has informed academic discourse and formed institutional structures. Yet, the matter of memory is, paradoxically, under-explored in studies of the 'long nineteenth century' in France. Mapping Memory in Nineteenth-Century French Literature and Culture focuses critical attention on that neglected century when France was struggling to negotiate the serially renewed memory of revolutionary turmoil and socio-cultural redefinition. This volume explores the spaces that the memory process claims and shapes, and it works to identify the crosscurrents that connect those spaces. It asks how memory resists - or cedes to - colonisations by authority, by official discourse, by history, and by aesthetics. It asks how memory-work coincides with or morphs into the processes of the imagination. Eschewing diachronic approaches, the contributors to this volume explore sites around which memory is concentrated or which it shapes and informs: Memory on the Street; Sites of National Memory; Metamorphoses: Memory and Literary Practice; and Memory's Imaginary Spaces."--Pub. desc
The Cambridge companion to Balzac( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the founders of literary realism and the serial novel, Honoré de Balzac (1799–1850) was a prolific writer who produced more than a hundred novels, plays and short stories during his career. With its dramatic plots and memorable characters, Balzac's fiction has enthralled generations of readers. 'La Comédie humaine', the vast collection of works in which he strove to document every aspect of nineteenth-century French society, has influenced writers from Flaubert, Zola and Proust to Dostoevsky and Oscar Wilde. This Companion provides a critical reappraisal of Balzac, combining studies of his major novels with guidance on the key narrative and thematic features of his writing. Twelve chapters by world-leading specialists encompass a wide spectrum of topics such as the representation of history, philosophy and religion, the plight of the struggling artist, gender and sexuality, and Balzac's depiction of the creative process itself
Preserving the provinces : small town and countryside in the work of Honoré de Balzac by Andrew Watts( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though famed for his vivid depictions of 19th-century Paris, Honoré de Balzac devoted as much of his creative energy to the provinces. This book examines the way in which he combined a theatrical tradition of anti-provincial satire with a more open celebration of French provincial life in the post-Revolutionary period
