André Gide dans le labyrinthe de la mythotextualité by Pamela Antonia Genova( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in French and English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le mythe a toujours tenu une place privilegiee dans l'oeuvre d'Andre Gide. En depit de sa formation protestante, ou peut-etre justement a cause d'elle, Gide revient constamment aux figures heroiques de l'Antiquite pour animer ses preoccupations esthetiques et morales. A travers l'etude de quatre textes indicatifs du corpus mythologique de l'auteur, Le Traite du Narcisse, Le Promethee mal enchai ne, Oedipe et Thesee, cette these examine de quelle facon le discours gidien, encadre par un referent ancien, arrive a s'affirmer, a se definir dans toute sa modernite originale. C'est grace au vechicule des recits bien-connus a son public que Gide peut mettre en scene sa propre subjectivite, qu'il peut transformer un discours classique en parole personnelle. La question est de savoir comment Gide reformule, transforme, metamorphose la matiere mythique pour en tirer un nouveau sens, pour y ajouter sa propre voix. Pour repondre a cette question, j'ai elabore la notion de la "mythotextualite" comme une nouvelle critere pour examiner, comprendre et apprecier l'oeuvre gidienne. La mythotextualite comprend deux elements principaux: la mythologie et l'intertextualite. Elle dessine un royaume d'activite textuelle a travers lequel l'ecrivain entreprend la reecriture creatrice et ludique des recits mythologiques. J'ai etudie cette mythotextualite dans quatre textes que j'ai presente dans l'ordre de leur parution, car je voulais mettre en evidence une progression semantique et semiotique, inherente a ce corpus. Non seulement est-ce que Gide experimente avec des figures intertexuelles telles que le deplacement, l'enchassement, la notion du double et la mise en abyme, mais aussi il elabore dans chacun de ces textes un discours personnel, un probleme intime qu'il essaie de regler pendant toute sa vie. Les recits mythologiques de Gide se nourrissent d'une contradiction fondamentale, un va-et-vient entre une sensualite devorante et une moralite tyrannique, entre la jouissance et l'ascetisme, enfin entre le paganisme et le christianisme. Cette "problematique gidienne" represente un fil conducteur qui peut guider le lecteur de texte en texte dans ce corpus particulier. A travers une manipulation progressivement plus developpee des procedes textuels modernistes, Gide perfectionne son discours mythotextuel tout en accordant a son conflit secret de plus en plus de liberte

Writing Japonisme : aesthetic translation in nineteenth-century French prose by Pamela Antonia Genova( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the late nineteenth century, French visual artists began incorporating Japanese forms into their work. The style, known as Japonisme, spanned the arts. Identifying a general critical move from a literal to a more metaphoric understanding and presentation of Japonisme, Pamela A. Genova applies a theory of "aesthetic translation" to a broad response to Japanese aesthetics within French culture. She crosses the borders of genre, field, and form to explore the relationship of Japanese visual art to French prose writing of the mid- to late 1800s. Writing Japonisme focuses on the work of Edmond de Goncourt, Joris-Karl Huysmans, Émile Zola, and Stéphane Mallarmé as they witnessed, incorporated, and participated in an unprecedented cultural exchange between France and Japan, as both creators and critics. Genova's original research opens new perspectives on a fertile and influential period of intercultural dynamics

Symbolist Journals: A Culture of Correspondence : a Culture of Correspondence by Pamela Antonia Genova( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This title was first published in 2002: In this title, the author argues that in the pages of Symbolist journals the modern reader can unearth an "other" 19th century, revealed as a creative realm in which writers allow themselves more artistic freedom than in their more formal, literary creations. In the journal they tested experimental theories, composed offbeat poetic texts and offered their opinions on a vast array of cultural phenomena. The aim of the book is to show that the Symbolist journals bear witness to a more personal, erratic, and innovative face of an aesthetic movement and a historical moment that have in many ways become cliched. The author also suggests that the development of interdisciplinarity in the Symbolist journals represents an influential aesthetic notion that went on to play a crucial role in 20th-century artistic expression, discernible in the schools of Modernism and Surrealism."--Provided by publisher
