Bartleby le scribe by , Summary

New York City, quartier de Wall Street. Un jeune homme est engagé dans une étude de notaire. Il s'appelle Bartleby. Son rôle consiste à copier des actes juridiques. Les premiers temps, Bartleby se montre irréprochable. Consciencieux, efficace, infatigable, il abat un travail colossal, le jour comme la nuit, sans jamais se plaindre. Son énergie est contagieuse. Elle pousse ses collègues, pourtant volontiers frondeurs, à donner le meilleur d'eux-mêmes. Un jour, la belle machine se dérègle. Lorsque le patron de l'étude lui confie un travail, Bartleby refuse de s'exécuter. Poliment, mais fermement. I would prefer not, lui répond-il. Soit, en français : je préfèrerais ne pas. Désormais, Bartleby cessera d'obéir aux ordres, en se murant dans ces quelques mots qu'il prononce comme un mantra. Je préfèrerais ne pas. Non seulement il cesse de travailler, mais il refuse de quitter les lieux... José Luis Munuera s'empare de la nouvelle d'Herman Melville dans une adaptation magistrale et porte un regard original sur ce texte, réflexion stimulante sur l'obéissance et la résistance passive.

Discern(e)ments by Joost de Bloois,Sjef Houppermans,Frans-Willem Korsten Summary

A bilingual collection of essays on the aesthetics of Gilles Deleuze, Discern(e)ments highlights what is at stake in Deleuzian philosophy of art. It traces the reception of Deleuzian thought in a broad range of disciplines and gauges its use-value in each of them. Following the dynamics between structure and becoming that punctuates Deleuzian aesthetics, Discern(e)ments sketches and erases boundaries between methods and traditions in philosophy and art theory, as well as in literary, performance and film studies. Offering both numerous case-studies as well as theoretical outlines, Discern(e)ments engages faculties, disciplines and criticisms not in a mere exchange of points of view, but in heterogenesis mapping out further discernments in Deleuzian aesthetics.

Bartleby by Herman Melville Summary

Edition enrichie (Présentation, chronologie, bibliographie, dossier et notes) Un jeune commis aux écritures se présente un jour à l’étude d’un notaire new-yorkais. S’il commence son nouvel emploi avec une assiduité frôlant le zèle, Bartleby délaisse peu à peu ses tâches, avant de finir par refuser catégoriquement de travailler. Le narrateur, secondé par ses fidèles employés le Dindon, Pinces Coupantes et Biscuit au Gingembre, déploie des trésors d’imagination pour tenter de ramener Bartleby à la raison. Mais à chaque demande, chaque ordre, inlassablement, le jeune homme répond avec une douceur implacable : « J’aimerais mieux pas. » Dans ce court roman, Herman Melville dresse avec brio le portrait d’un personnage d’une fascinante ambiguïté. Par son mutisme et sa résistance farouche à toute forme d’autorité, Bartleby s’est imposé comme l’une des figures les plus complexes et les plus troublantes de la littérature. Présentation et dossier de Jean-Pierre Naugrette. Traduit de l’anglais par Pierre Goubert.

Maurice Blanchot and Fragmentary Writing by Leslie Hill Summary

Writing in fragments is often held to be one of the most distinctive signature effects of Romantic, modern, and postmodern literature. But what is the fragment, and what may be said to be its literary, philosophical, and political significance? Few writers have explored these questions with such probing radicality and rigorous tenacity as the French writer and thinker Maurice Blanchot. For the first time in any language, this book explores in detail Blanchot's own writing in fragments in order to understand the stakes of the fragmentary within philosophical and literary modernity. It attends in detail to each of Blanchot's fragmentary works (Awaiting Forgetting, The Step Not Beyond, and The Writing of the Disaster) and reconstructs Blanchot's radical critical engagement with the philosophical and literary tradition, in particular with Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Heraclitus, Levinas, Derrida, Nancy, Mallarmé, Char, and others, and assesses Blanchot's account of politics, Jewish thought, and the Shoah, with a view to understanding the stakes of fragmentary writing in Blanchot and within philosophical and literary modernity in general.

Cioran ou les vestiges du sacré dans l’écriture by Sara Danièle Bélanger-Michaud Summary

Les institutions − et en premier lieu l’Église − où s’exprimait et se vivait l’expérience du sacré se sont peu à peu effritées. Mais le sacré déborde le cadre des institutions et il en reste des vestiges, entre autres, dans la littérature. C’est dans l’œuvre de Cioran que Sara Danièle Bélanger Michaud les a cherchés. Emil Michel Cioran (1911-1995) est un philosophe et essayiste d’origine roumaine qui a vécu en France à partir de 1937. Il est principalement connu pour ses aphorismes et pour son recueil De l’inconvénient d’être né, paru en 1973. Dans son essai, l’auteure présente son œuvre comme une manifestation de la quête du sacré et une nouvelle manière de l’habiter. Elle écrit: «Qu’il soit question de sa quête spirituelle (ou de son ratage spirituel), de ses rencontres avec l’absolu, de ses expériences d’extase, de son obsession pour le doute ou encore de sa nature religieuse à rebours, c’est toujours en même temps du sacré dont il est question».

Insister of Jacques Derrida by Helene Cixous Summary

"Exciting, passionate writing. A refusal to mourn her very close friend Derrida's death, it begins with a telling of a dream in which Derrida and Cixous feature as footballing mice." Tom Boncza-Tomaszewski, The Independent. In 2003 Derrida had promised to attend a colloquium on 'Reading Cixous and Derrida Reading Each Other/Themselves'. His untimely death in 2004 meant that it was, as Cixous writes, 'Impossible to keep one's word on this subject.' Insister of Jacques Derrida is Cixous' poignant and compelling response to his unfulfilled promise and a moving tribute to the colleague, collaborator and friend with whom she created some of the most memorable meditations on literature and philosophy of the last century. Written in lucid, poetic style, Cixous uses powerful and evocative recollections to closely read, explicate and speculate on their intensely productive relationship as well as on Derrida's legacy, demonstrating the profound commitment that formed the cornerstone of both their friendship and their life's works.

Turtle Alveston is a survivor. At fourteen, she roams the woods along the northern California coast. The creeks, tide pools, and rocky islands are her haunts and her hiding grounds, and she is known to wander for miles. But while her physical world is expansive, her personal one is small and treacherous: Turtle has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin. Her social existence is confined to the middle school (where she fends off the interest of anyone, student or teacher, who might penetrate her shell) and to her life with her father. Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high-school boy who tells jokes, lives in a big clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. And for the first time, the larger world begins to come into focus: her life with Martin is neither safe nor sustainable. Motivated by her first experience with real friendship and a teenage crush, Turtle starts to imagine escape, using the very survival skills her father devoted himself to teaching her. What follows is a harrowing story of bravery and redemption. With Turtle's escalating acts of physical and emotional courage, the reader watches, heart in throat, as this teenage girl struggles to become her own hero—and in the process, becomes ours as well. Shot through with striking language in a fierce natural setting, My Absolute Darling is an urgently told, profoundly moving read that marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.

Gutenberg's Apprentice by Alix Christie Summary

An Economist Book of the Year An October 2014 Indie Next Pick An enthralling literary debut that evokes one of the most momentous events in history, the birth of printing in medieval Germany—a story of invention, intrigue and betrayal Youthful, ambitious Peter Schoeffer is on the verge of professional success as a scribe in Paris when his foster father, the wealthy merchant and bookseller Johann Fust, summons him home to corrupt, feud-plagued Mainz to meet “a most amazing man.” Johann Gutenberg, a driven and caustic inventor, has devised a revolutionary—and to some, blasphemous—method of bookmaking: a machine he calls a printing press. Fust is financing Gutenberg’s workshop, and he orders Peter to become Gutenberg’s apprentice. Resentful at having to abandon a prestigious career as a scribe, Peter begins his education in the “darkest art.” As his skill grows, so, too, does his admiration for Gutenberg and his dedication to their daring venture: printing copies of the Holy Bible. But when outside forces align against them, Peter finds himself torn between two father figures—the generous Fust and the brilliant, mercurial Gutenberg, who inspires Peter to achieve his own mastery. Caught between the genius and the merchant, the old ways and the new, Peter and the men he admires must work together to prevail against overwhelming obstacles—a battle that will change history . . . and irrevocably transform them all.

Comprendre Deleuze by Philippe Mengue Summary

Le nom de Deleuze est associé à d’étranges concepts (machines désirantes, ritournelle, machine de guerre ou lignes de fuite). Or ces notions impressionnantes s’expliquent simplement, à partir du moment où l’on dispose de l’intuition qui ordonne son œuvre. Cet ouvrage nous fait accéder à la compréhension du fil qui noue la pensée de Deleuze, notamment à partir de personnages littéraires tels que Bartleby, Lancelot ou la Princesse de Clèves. Deleuze apparaît alors comme non dogmatique, lui-même ouvert à la variation et à l’invention d’une multiplicité de sens possibles de la vie. L’auteur, Philippe Mengue, est agrégé et docteur d’État en philosophie. Il enseigne au Collège International de Philosophie (2010-2012). Il a déjà publié entre autres Gilles Deleuze ou le système multiple (Kirmé, 1995), Deleuze et la question de la démocratie (L’Harmattan, 2003), Utopies et devenirs deleuziens (L’Harmattan, 2009). L’illustrateur, Aleksi Cavaillez travaille notamment pour la revue XXI et Libération. Il a également publié avec Viktor Vejvoda un carnet de voyage, Via Baltica. Estonie, Lettonie, Lituanie, sur la route des pays Baltes (Noir sur Blanc, 2007).

Éloge de l'idiotie by Marie Berne Summary

Le terme idiotie est créé au début du 19e siècle pour remplacer celui d¿idiotisme qui désignait à la fois l¿absence de culture et la stupidité au sens médical. Pourtant l¿origine grecque introduit une nuance : idios signifie ce qui est spécial, propre ou original. De là, dire que l¿idiot, de Dostoïevski notamment, appartient à la catégorie des mélancoliques, êtres exceptionnels et artistes selon Aristote dans le Problème XXX, encourage une nouvelle définition du terme. Cet Éloge de l¿idiotie observe pour la première fois de près le phénomène de l¿idiotie romanesque en Occident à travers le 20e siècle. À la différence du 19e, le personnage idiot ne transmet pas seulement un thème mais bien une nouvelle façon de s¿exprimer et d¿écrire. Mettant en dialogue les termes idiotie et rhétorique, cette étude offre un examen méticuleux de quatre textes choisis et réunis de façon inédite: Nadja de Breton, Le Bruit et la Fureur de Faulkner, L¿Innommable de Beckett et Marelle de Cortázar. Nadja, Benjy, l¿Innommable et la Maga manifestent une ignorance et une singularité qui font d¿eux ces idiots persécutés du fait de leur perception « anormale » de la réalité. Tout s¿inverse lorsque leurs propos étranges se mêlent à la langue originale de chacun des livres. Proche de l¿écrivain, l¿idiot est à son tour métaphore de la rhétorique à l¿¿uvre, la figure idéale pour remettre en question toute prétendue intelligence ou raison au profit de l¿éloge d¿une forme de naïveté, une bienheureuse éthique de l¿idiotie. « On doit à Marie Berne une remarquable étude de cette idiotie littéraire, qu¿elle analyse à travers quatre romans ou récits du siècle dernier [¿]. Elle s¿inspire à son tour de la définition proposée par Clément Rosset, mais elle ne l¿oublie pas en route et, surtout [¿] elle l¿applique efficacement au domaine littéraire; » Alain Roger (Bréviaire de la Bêtise. Bibliothèque des idées. Paris: NRF, Gallimard, 2008, pp.195)

Le Bore out by François Baumann Summary

Le travail se trouve au centre de la vie et, dans nos sociétés occidentales, la valeur « travail » revêt une importance considérable dans l'équilibre intime de chacun. L'épuisement professionnel par l'ennui au travail ou « bore-out » (de l'anglais bore : ennui), par l'absence d'une activité construite, d'une motivation qui permette d'utiliser l'énergie que l'on garde en soi, est tout sauf de la fainéantise. C'est une souffrance considérable pour celui ou celle qui traverse cette épreuve, car l'ennui au travail est vécu comme un tabou, les personnes atteintes de bore-out préférant taire leur impossibilité à supporter le vide et l'ennui d'un travail. Nous sommes face à un trouble psychologique d'un type nouveau. Le manque de travail, l'ennui, la retraite pour certains, mais aussi l'absence généralisée de satisfaction dans l'exercice de leur profession vont entraîner un véritable désastre psychologique : honte, perte de l'estime de soi, dépression... Le bore-out est l'opposé du burn-out.

The Eleven by Pierre Michon Summary

In The Eleven, Michon lets us into the world of Corentin, a painter shaped by—and who eventually shapes—history. Brought up among provincial aristocracy to become a favorite of Parisian society—his paintings are commissioned by Louis XV’s mistress—Corentin’s career rides the Tides of the French Revolution. His masterpiece, "The Eleven," is an enigmatic Last Supper, representing the eleven members of the Committee of Public Safety (including Robespierre and Saint Just) during the Reign of Terror. Corentin and company, his work of art, and the historical tableau of the French Revolution come to life in dazzling, even painterly, detail. A potent blend of fact and fiction, The Eleven is a beautifully written, astute meditation on the nature of history itself and the artist’s role in it. From the Trade Paperback edition.
