Matisse’s Poets by Kathryn Brown Summary

Throughout his career, Henri Matisse used imagery as a means of engaging critically with poetry and prose by a diverse range of authors. Kathryn Brown offers a groundbreaking account of Matisse's position in the literary cross-currents of 20th-century France and explores ways in which reading influenced the artist's work in a range of media. This study argues that the livre d'artiste became the privileged means by which Matisse enfolded literature into his own idiom and demonstrated the centrality of his aesthetic to modernist debates about authorship and creativity. By tracing the compositional and interpretive choices that Matisse made as a painter, print maker, and reader in the field of book production, this study offers a new theoretical account of visual art's capacity to function as a form of literary criticism and extends debates about the gendering of 20th-century bibliophilia. Brown also demonstrates the importance of Matisse's self-placement in relation to the French literary canon in the charged political climate of the Second World War and its aftermath. Through a combination of archival resources, art history, and literary criticism, this study offers a new interpretation of Matisse's artist's books and will be of interest to art historians, literary scholars, and researchers in book history and modernism.

La Seconde by Colette Summary

La Seconde reste le plus méconnu des grands romans de Colette. Pourtant les thèmes sont bien caractéristiques de l?écrivain : l?amour et son faire-valoir, la jalousie ; l?alliance, au-delà, justement, de la jalousie, et renouvelée ici, de deux femmes qui se savent solidaires face à l?homme qu?elles aiment ; un adolescent torturé et maladroit ; le théâtre, perçu, cette fois, du point de vue de l?auteur « Lorsqu?il suffit à un écrivain de se montrer, d?être lui-même pour émouvoir et faire oeuvre d?art à la fois, pour enchanter nos sens, notre coeur, notre goût, dans une approbation sans réserve de notre intelligence, on peut, sans crainte de se tromper, parler de génie » (Henry de Montherlant, à propos de La Seconde).

Calvary - A Novel by Octave Mirbeau Summary

"Calvary" ("Le Calvaire") is a 1886 novel by the French journalist, playwright, and novelist Octave Mirbeau. Heavily drawing from his own life, Mirbeau's "Calvary" is a romanticised retelling of his fateful affair with a woman of questionable morals named Judith Vinmer - "Juliette Roux" in the novel. Octave Mirbeau (1848 - 1917) was a French playwright, travel writer, journalist, pamphleteer, art critic, and novelist whose work has been translated into thirty languages. Mirbeau became famous in Europe and enjoyed immense popularity, while simultaneously remaining appealing to the literary and artistic avant-garde. Other notable works by this author include: "Sébastien Roch" (1890), "Dans le ciel" (1893-1989), and "Le Jardin des supplices" (1899). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of erotic literature.

A History of Six Ideas by W. Tatarkiewicz Summary

The history of aesthetics, like the histories of other sciences, may be treated in a two-fold manner: as the history of the men who created the field of study, or as the history of the questions that have been raised and resolved in the course of its pursuit. The earlier History of Aesthetics (3 volumes, 1960-68, English-language edition 1970-74) by the author of the present book was a history of men, of writers and artists who in centuries past have spoken up concerning beauty and art, form and crea tivity. The present book returns to the same subject, but treats it in a different way: as the history of aesthetic questions, concepts, theories. The matter of the two books, the previous and the present, is in part the same; but only in part: for the earlier book ended with the 17th century, while the present one brings the subject up to our own times. And from the 18th century to the 20th much happened in aesthetics; it was only in that period that aesthetics achieved recognition as a separate science, received a name of its own, and produced theories that early scholars and artists had never dreamed of.
