The Count of Monte Cristo by Summary

The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. The story takes place in France, Italy and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. In addition, it is a story that involves romance, loyalty, betrayal and selfishness, shown throughout the story as characters slowly reveal their true inner nature. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood."

Of Illustrious Men by Jean Rouaud Summary

Hailed as a masterpiece, Jean Rouaud’s first novel, Fields of Glory, was awarded France’s most prestigious literary prize, the Prix Goncourt, and sold over a million copies worldwide. Of Illustrious Men establishes as fact what the first novel promised—that Rouaud is a writer of remarkable power, subtlety, and originality. Lovingly set in the same region as Fields of Glory, the novel is about the author’s father, Joseph, and a traveling salesman who died at forty-one and left a family in shock behind him. In the mind of the grieving eleven-year-old son—too young to have really known him—his father was a hero, a warrior, a legend of the Resistance during World War II. But the narrator is no longer that eleven-year-old boy; he is a mature and gifted writer. And though he may still ache for the loss of his father, he also knows that Joseph’s illustriousness can be found not only in the heady days of wartime glory but in moments of domestic tranquility. Of Illustrious Men evokes scenes of both war and peace with exquisite beauty and understated and poignant tenderness. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.

The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian Summary

The unforgettable cross country journey of a runaway couple in their twilight years determined to meet the end of all roads on their own terms—a major motion picture from Sony Pictures Classics starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland. The Robinas have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now in their eighties, Ella suffers from cancer and John has Alzheimer's. Yearning for one last adventure, the self-proclaimed "down-on-their-luck geezers" kidnap themselves from the adult children and doctors who seem to run their lives and steal away from their home in suburban Detroit on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery. With Ella as his vigilant copilot, John steers their '78 Leisure Seeker RV along the forgotten roads of Route 66 toward Disneyland in search of a past they're having a damned hard time remembering. Yet Ella is determined to prove that, when it comes to life, you can go back for seconds—even when everyone says you can't. “The Leisure Seeker is pretty much like life itself: joyous, painful, moving, tragic, mysterious, and not to be missed.”—Booklist, starred review

Understanding the Qur'an Today by Mahmoud Hussein Summary

The prevailing belief among Muslims is that, because the Qur'an is the Word of God and God is eternal, it follows that His Word is also eternal. The belief is based on the postulate that the Word of God must be of the same nature as God Himself. Mahmoud Hussein refutes this by showing that it contradicts the very teachings of the Qur'an. Whereas God transcends time, His Word is inscribed within time. It is not a monologue, but a living exchange, through which God reveals to His Prophet different orders of truth, weaving together the absolute and the relative, the general and the particular, the eternal and the contingent. An international bestseller, Understanding the Qur'an today offers a new perspective on one of the world's most influential texts and adds an invaluable contribution to the debate on Islam and modernity.

Pagnol fait son cinéma by Philippe Chanoinat,Charles Da Costa Summary

On dirait le sud L’univers langagier et poétique de Marcel Pagnol, écrivain membre de l’Académie française, auteur de quelques chefs-d’œuvre de la littérature et icone de l’identité provençale, est indissociable de celui du cinéma. En tant que réalisateur, scénariste ou romancier adapté, Marcel Pagnol fut un artiste accompli, probablement l’une des figures incontournables du 7e Art hexagonal. Signé Chanoinat et Da Costa, ce nouvel ouvrage de textes et de caricatures rend hommage à l’univers de Pagnol au cinéma et à quelques-unes de ses « gueules » iconiques : Fernandel, Raimu ou Daniel Auteuil et Emmanuelle Béart. De Marius à Fanny, en passant par La Femme du boulanger ou les plus récents Manon des sources, La Gloire de mon père et Le Château de ma mère, c’est près d’un siècle de cinéma qui se dessine autour d’une œuvre tendre, poétique et authentique.

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery Summary

The phenomenal New York Times bestseller that “explores the upstairs-downstairs goings-on of a posh Parisian apartment building” (Publishers Weekly). In an elegant hôtel particulier in Paris, Renée, the concierge, is all but invisible—short, plump, middle-aged, with bunions on her feet and an addiction to television soaps. Her only genuine attachment is to her cat, Leo. In short, she’s everything society expects from a concierge at a bourgeois building in an upscale neighborhood. But Renée has a secret: She furtively, ferociously devours art, philosophy, music, and Japanese culture. With biting humor, she scrutinizes the lives of the tenants—her inferiors in every way except that of material wealth. Paloma is a twelve-year-old who lives on the fifth floor. Talented and precocious, she’s come to terms with life’s seeming futility and decided to end her own on her thirteenth birthday. Until then, she will continue hiding her extraordinary intelligence behind a mask of mediocrity, acting the part of an average pre-teen high on pop culture, a good but not outstanding student, an obedient if obstinate daughter. Paloma and Renée hide their true talents and finest qualities from a world they believe cannot or will not appreciate them. But after a wealthy Japanese man named Ozu arrives in the building, they will begin to recognize each other as kindred souls, in a novel that exalts the quiet victories of the inconspicuous among us, and “teaches philosophical lessons by shrewdly exposing rich secret lives hidden beneath conventional exteriors” (Kirkus Reviews). “The narrators’ kinetic minds and engaging voices (in Alison Anderson’s fluent translation) propel us ahead.” —The New York Times Book Review “Barbery’s sly wit . . . bestows lightness on the most ponderous cogitations.” —The New Yorker

Village Notables in Nineteenth-Century France by Barnett Singer Summary

Local priests, mayors, and schoolmasters have often been portrayed by French novelists as objects of ridicule. In reality, however, the village notables gave norms to the villagers in their communities and personified the community’s values. The influence of village notables and the values they preached and personified ensure their importance in any view of French rural history. Their world was already in transition towards modernity, and they both guided and impeded the process. Village Notables in Nineteenth-Century France tells who these notables were, where they came from, what they thought, what influence they had in local society, how they competed with each other for village hegemony or enhanced status, and what problems they endured. The book is a lively account, solidly based on extensive archival research and other primary sources. It gives the reader a feel for the era and the milieu.

Language and Identity by David Evans Summary

Language not only expresses identities but also constructs them. Starting from that point, Language and Identity examines the interrelationships between language and identities. It finds that they are so closely interwoven, that words themselves are inscribed with ideological meanings. Words and language constitute meanings within discourses and discourses vary in power. The powerful ones reproduce more powerful meanings, colonize other discourses and marginalize or silence the least powerful languages and cultures. Language and culture death occur in extreme cases of marginalization. This book also demonstrates the socio-economic opportunities offered by language choice and the cultural allegiances of language, where groups have been able to create new lives for themselves by embracing new languages in new countries. Language can be a 'double-edged sword' of opportunity and marginalization. Language and Identity argues that bilingualism and in some cases multilingualism can both promote socio-economic opportunity and combat culture death and marginalization. With sound theoretical perspectives drawing upon the work of Bakhtin, Vygotsky, Gumperz, Foucault and others, this book provides readers with a rationale to redress social injustice in the world by supporting minority linguistic and cultural identities and an acknowledgement that access to language can provide opportunity.

Histoire de la Bible en France by Daniel Lortsch Summary

Daniel Lortsch (1855-1916) a été pasteur à Beauvoisin, puis à l'Église Évangélique Libre de Nîmes, mais c'est surtout en tant qu'agent de la Société biblique britannique et étrangère que son nom reste dans la mémoire protestante. Son livre, Histoire de la Bible en France, est en effet devenu un classique, par la richesse documentaire qu'il a su réunir. Trop souvent le public évangélique français suppose que l'influence de la Bible ne s'est manifestée dans notre pays qu'avec la Réforme ; l'ouvrage de D. Lortsch détruit ce préjugé, en montrant que la connaissance de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Testament a fortement rythmé la culture du moyen-âge et laissé sa trace dans la langue populaire. (En couverture, une enluminure extraite de la Bible de Charles le Chauve, au neuvième siècle). En dépit du titre, l'auteur ne s'est d'ailleurs pas limité à l'histoire de la diffusion des Écritures en francophonie, il y ajoute une collection de fragments fort bien rédigés, sources d'informations et de curiosités irremplaçables pour le bibliste.

Abrano by Julien G. Poirier Summary

L’Ombre a frappé à la porte du Royaume. Heureusement, Abrano et l’armée orestoran ont su repousser les Morts-Vivants au-delà des frontières. Mais quels autres plans l’ennemi peut-il bien avoir en réserve ? Les Géants et les Fées devinent, eux aussi, la menace qui s’avance sur l’Agaleor. Une alliance entre les Trois Peuples semble inévitable. Abrano découvrira bien vite que la quête dans laquelle il s’est plongé est plus vaste qu’il ne le croyait. Le Livre de Fravonte lui révélera le lourd passé des Géants, et en quoi ce passé continue de les hanter, constituant un grave péril pour les Royaumes Libres. Même s’il a déjà affronté de nombreux dangers, le véritable défi se trouve sans aucun doute à l’avant de son destin.

Le titre annonce par lui-meme les deux parties de cette etude. Tout d'abord, Voir Jesus et le Pere en lui. C'est en effet ce voir qui sera aussi bien le point de depart de notre recherche que le centre de gravite autour duquel elle s'articulera pregressivement. Jesus et le Pere en lui ne retiendront notre attention que pour autant que cette activite les concerne. Et reciproquement, le voir ne sera considere que lorsqu'il a pour objet direct ou indirect la personne de Jesus comme telle ou dans les activites et les evenements auxquels elle participe sans les activites et les evenements auxquels elle participe sans que la personne du Pere ne doive explicitement l'accompagner. Dans ce voir, les versets 12,45: qui me voit, voit celui qui m'a envoye, et 14,9: qui m'a vu, a vu le Pere occupent sans doute une place centrale. Nous les appellerons donc: teste centraux.

La lettre et la mère by Catherine Dubeau Summary

Cet essai interroge ce qui, dans le lien mère-fille et dans la représentation qu’en donnent Suzanne Necker (1737-1794) et Germaine de Staël (1766-1817), dirige et travaille leur pratique de l’écriture. Il envisage chez l’une et l’autre auteure le lien ambivalent à la mère comme expérience fondatrice et structurante de la passion, constitutive des motifs littéraires de la colère indomptable, de l’amour contrarié et de la culpabilité mortifère. La lecture conjointe de leurs œuvres (essais, journaux, correspondances et, dans le cas de Germaine de Staël, fictions théâtrales et romanesques) dévoile une relation orageuse, marquée par la rivalité, la culpabilité, le remords, et dont l’expression apparaît indissociable des bouleversements sociopolitiques contemporains : Révolution, Terreur et Empire prêtent leurs emblèmes, tissant des réseaux analogiques entre les économies familiale et politique. Donner la vie et mettre à mort sont ici les faces antithétiques d’une même relation, par laquelle la lettre, tous genres confondus, oscille indéfiniment entre l’aveu amoureux et la déclaration de guerre.

Paul et Virginie by Bernardin . de St. Pierre Summary

Deux cabanes se faisaient face sur le rivage de l'île Maurice. Élevés comme frère et sœur, Paul et Virginie vivaient chacun dans l'une, en parfaite harmonie avec la nature. Alors qu'ils grandissaient à l'ombre des bananiers et des citronniers en fleur, au bord de l'eau turquoise, leur amour s'épanouissait en une passion pure. Mais un jour, tout devint gris et terne: Virginie fut contrainte de quitter Paul pour rejoindre la métropole. «Paul et Virginie» est un chef d'œuvre de la littérature française qui, dès le XVIIIème siècle, connut un succès phénoménal. Au travers d'une idylle exotique et d'un nouvel Eden, Bernardin de Saint-Pierre offre une vision pessimiste de la société. D'un côté la sombre métropole, de l'autre, le paradis de l'île de France — séparés par les flots comme Paul et Virginie. Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre ( 1737-1814) veut, dès sa jeune enfance, parcourir les mers. À douze ans déjà, il est matelot. Il vit d’aventures: il voyage en Allemagne, en Hollande, en Russie, en Pologne et en Autriche, et surtout à l’île Maurice comme officier. Il y voit là l’horreur de l’esclavage et l’harmonie de la nature. Il tirera de ces expériences «Le Voyage à l’île de France», et «Les Études de la Nature», dans lesquels on y retrouve le fameux roman «Paul et Virginie». C’est un énorme succès qui le libère de ses problèmes financiers. L’influence de Rousseau, avec qui il se ballade et converse à la campagne, est aussi beaucoup présente dans ses écrits et sa philosophie.

La trahison de la foi by Emma Anderson Summary

Se fondant sur le récit éloquent de la vie d'un homme, Emma Anderson explore le choc entre le christianisme et la religon autochtone traditonnelle à l'époque coloniale en Amérique du Nord. Pierre-Anthoine Pastedechouan est né au sein d'une communauté indigène nomade d'Innus le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent dans ce qui est aujourd'hui le Québec. À onze ans, il fut envoyé en France par des missionnaires catholiques pour y être éduqué pendant cinq ans, puis ramené dans son pays afin de prendre part à la christianisation de son peuple. Le contact de Pastedechouan avec le catholicisme français pendant son enfance suscita en lui une ambivalence religieuse fatale. Dépouillé à la fois de son identité religieuse traditionnelle et de ses aptitudes critiques à la survie, il éprouvera de la difficulté à se faire accepter par sa communauté à son retour. Simultanément, ses tentatives de se faire valoir aux yeux des siens amèneront les Jésuites à le considérer avec une suspicion croissante. En suspension entre deux univers, Pastedechouan finira par devenir déconnecté - avec des résultats dramatiques - aussi bien de sa communauté autochtone que de ses mentors missionnaires. Le récit de la vie de Pastedechouan vient éclairer des luttes cruciales en vue de conserver et d'imposer son identité religieuse des deux côtés de l'océan Atlantique au dix-septième siècle, tout en étant d'une pertinence frappante pour le contact contemporain entre peuples autochtones et non autochtones.

Tyssot de Patot and His Work 1655–1738 by Aubrey Rosenberg Summary

Although the novel, V oyages el avantures de] aques Masse, caused some thing of a stir during the first half of the eighteenth century, its author, Simon Tyssot de Patot (1655-1738), remained largely unknown in his lifetime, and it is only in this century that he has been recognized as one of the countless soldiers in the vast army of philosophes that assaulted the bastions of religious, political and sodallife in Europe of the late seven 1 teenth and early eighteenth centuries. Tyssot was a Huguenot who lived most of his life in Holland where he pursued a career as professor of mathematics in the sodal and cultural 1 Tyssot and his work seem to have been first brought to the attention of modem writers by the German critics during their investigation of the type of desert island or robinsonade literature that preceded and followed Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. The earliest reference I have found occurs in A. Kippenberg, Robinson in Deutschland bis zur Insel Felsenburg (1713-43), Hanover, 1892, pp. 66-67. Tyssot's name and work appear to have been first linked with the development of socialism in A. Lichtenberger, Le Socialisme au XVIIIe siecle, Paris, 1895, p. 44. Tyssot's Voyages et avantures de]aques Masse was discussed for its literary merits in A. LeBreton, Le Roman au dix huitieme siecle, Paris, 1898. LeBreton did not know that Tyssot was the author.

Les Écrits de Pierre Potier by Pierre Potier Summary

Missionnaire chez les Hurons et Français du Détroit (Windsor) de 1744 à 1781, le jésuite belge Pierre Potier (1708-1781) a laissé une documentation considérable. Robert Toupin nous livre ici ces écrits jusqu’à aujourd’hui dispersés dans plusieurs fonds d’archives. Documents indispensables pour l’étude de la formation des missionnaires jésuites et du travail d’évangélisation en Nouvelle-France, les écrits de Potier touchent la théologie, la philosophie, la morale, l’Écriture sainte, les langues (latine, française, huronne), les sciences, l’administration de la mission (livres de compte, registres de catholicité des Hurons et des Français), sans parler des notes sur les ouvrages de piété ou de dévotion, des itinéraires de voyages et de la correspondance. La partie la plus originale demeure toutefois le lexique des « façons de parler » en Nouvelle-France, un répertoire terminologique de première importance. Une description commentée de la bibliothèque personnelle de Potier complète l’étude. Excellent ouvrage de référence pour les historiens, ce livre s’adresse également aux linguistiques, aux anthropologues, aux ethnologues et aux spécialistes de la toponymie dans l’empire français d’Amérique. C’est un corpus situé à la frontière de la culture savante, bien ancré dans le territoire du savoir encyclopédique.
