The five paradoxes of modernity by Antoine Compagnon( Book )

49 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this elegant, highly readable book, Compagnon confronts the postmodern's co-optation of the modern by tracing paradoxical elements in the aesthetic of the new - particularly the aesthetic and moral contradictions built into the enthusiasm for the new - in the "five paradoxes of modernity": the superstition of the new, the religion of the future, the mania for theory, the appeal to mass culture, and the passion for repudiation

Le démon de la théorie : littérature et sens commun by Antoine Compagnon( Book )

49 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La théorie a ébranlé les repères du sens commun, mais le sens commun a résisté à la théorie. Et celle-ci a souvent dû forcer la note et réduire son adversaire au silence, au risque de s'enfermer dans des paradoxes. C'est le combat de la théorie et du sens commun que ce livre retrace, sans se limiter au domaine français

19 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in French and Romanian and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literature, theory, and common sense by Antoine Compagnon( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the late twentieth century, the commonsense approach to literature was deemed naive. Roland Barthes proclaimed the death of the author, and Hillis Miller declared that all interpretation is theoretical. In many a literature department, graduate students spent far more time on Derrida and Foucault than on Shakespeare and Milton. Despite this, commonsense approaches to literature - including the belief that literature represents reality and authorial intentions matter - have resisted theory with tenacity. As a result, argues Antoine Compagnon, theorists have gone to extremes, boxed themselves into paradoxes, and distanced others from their ideas. Eloquently assessing the accomplishments and failings of literary theory, Compagnon ultimately defends the methods and goals of a theoretical commitment tempered by the wisdom of common sense." "While it constitutes an engaging introduction to recent theoretical debates, the book is organized not by school of thought but around seven central issues: literariness, the author, the world, the reader, style, history, and value. What makes a work literature? Does fiction imitate reality? Is the reader present in the text? What constitutes style? Is the context in which a work is written important to its apprehension? Are literary values universal?" "As he examines how theory has wrestled these themes, Compagnon establishes not a simple middle ground but a state of productive tension between high theory and common sense. The result is a book that will be met with both controversy and sighs of relief."--Jacket

The death of French culture by Donald Morrison( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creativity of its artists may be undeniable, but the influence (ghostlike) and the importance (derisory) of France in cultural exchanges both go to show that French culture no longer speaks to the world. This decline ultimately suits the French national mentality, inclined as it is to lamentation and sorrow. Morrison has returned to his original article to see how well his central arguments hold up in the light of the criticisms levelled at him. This new and updated version of his controversial text is accompanied by a thoughtful reply by Antoine Compagnon, who highlights a certain ambivalence within French culture, still capable of achieving the best but seemingly paralysed by its preoccupation with its own grandeur. --from publisher description

24 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auprès de la question théorique ou historique traditionnelle : "Qu'est-ce que la littérature ?", se pose avec plus d'urgence aujourd'hui une question critique et politique : "Que peut la littérature ?" Quelle valeur la société et la culture contemporaines attribuent-elles à la littérature ? Quelle utilité ? Quel rôle ? "Ma confiance en l'avenir de la littérature, déclarait Calvino, repose sur la certitude qu'il y a des choses que seule la littérature peut nous donner." Ce credo serait-il encore le nôtre ?
