BEAUTY AND THE BARON 1 by Satomi Tsuya,Deborah M.Hale Summary

0 One day, the impoverished but kind Angela receives a visit from the successor to a neighboring Earl, Lord Daventry. Hiding a terrible war wound with a mask, Lord Daventry avoids the public eye. He is feared by the people of the village, who believe he practices black magic. “What business could Lord Daventry have with me?” On her guard, Angela asks the reason for his visit, and Lord Daventry opens his dour mouth and abruptly proposes marriage. His grandfather’s death is imminent, and to make him happy, Lord Daventry proposes a fictional engagement. Not realizing that her heart is drawn to this closed-off man, Angela accepts.

Why Read the Classics? by Italo Calvino Summary

This collection of essays by the acclaimed author of Cosmicomics offers a fascinating, personal journey through some of literature’s greatest works. Classics, according to Italo Calvino, are not only works of enduring cultural value, but also personal touchstones. They are the books we are always rereading in order to understand our world and ourselves. Here, Calvino introduces more than thirty works from his own ideal library in essays of warmth, humor, and striking insight. He discusses great authors ranging from Homer to Jorge Luis Borges, and from Charles Dickens to the Persian folklorist Nezami. Whether tracing the links between Ovid’s Metamorphoses and Alain Robbe-Grillet’s objectivity, discovering the origins of science fiction in the writings of Cyrano de Bergerac, or convincing us that the Italian novelist Carlo Emilio Gadda’s works are like artichokes, Calvino offers a new perspective on beloved favorites and introduces us to hidden gems. “This book serves as a welcome reminder that the great works are great because they can mean so much to readers, and Calvino is a most knowledgeable guide to all the best destinations.”—San Francisco Chronicle

In an Iron Glove by Claire Martin Summary

Claire Martin's autobiography was first published in two volumes in 1965 and 1966. Already a prize winning Quebec writer, the author generated a wave of controversy with this detailed account of a childhood subjected to cruelty and brutality. Her deeply moving portrayal drew acclaim from readers who saw aspects of their own childhood experiences mirrored in its pages; it also evoked resistance from traditionalists unsettled by its exposé of family, church, and convent school some decades before the Quiet Revolution. Written with the passion of one who has known harsh injustices, this memoir nevertheless reflects the steady focus and narrative skill of an seasoned writer. With a richly descriptive style and deft ironic touch, Claire Martin tells her own unforgettable story of a young person confronting and finally emerging from the oppressions of unrestrained malign authority.

Hermit in Paris by Italo Calvino Summary

This collection of journals, interviews and travelogues by the author of Invisible Cities has “something fascinating on every page” (The Guardian, UK). This posthumously published collection offers a unique, puzzle-like portrait of one of the postwar era’s most inventive and mercurial writers. In letters and journals, occasional pieces and interviews, Italo Calvino recalls growing up in seaside Italy and fighting in the antifascist resistance during World War II. He traces the course of his literary career and reflects on his many travels, including a journey through the United States in 1959 and 1960 that brings out his droll wit at its best. Sparkling with wisdom and unexpected delights, Hermit in Paris is an autobiography like no other. “Surprising, tart, and distinctive, like [Calvino] himself.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

La réception de l'Arioste par Italo Calvino by Manuel Esposito Summary

Comme le remarque Roland Barthes dans « La mécanique du charme », Italo Calvino « est un penseur ou praticien du récit – ce qui, finalement, n'est pas tellement fréquent aujourd'hui ». En effet, une partie conséquente de l'oeuvre de Calvino est constituée d'essais sur la littérature, voire d'écrits théoriques dont la proportion est presque aussi importante que son oeuvre de narrateur. Ainsi Italo Calvino a-t-il pu développer une véritable science de la narration, à la fois par son oeuvre de conteur et de « praticien » de la littérature.

In Praise of Defeat by Abdellatif Laabi Summary

One of the central writers and thinkers in contemporary Maghreb letters and banned by the Moroccan government, Abdellatif Laabi's poetry is increasingly influential on the international scene and spans six decades of political and literary change, innovation, and struggle. Including a wide range of work, from piercing domestic love poetry to a fierce lyricism of social resistance informed by nearly a decade spent in prison for "crimes of opinion," all of Laabi's poetry is situated firmly against tyranny and for life--an almost mythic sense of spiritual and earthly joy emanates from this resistance through the darkness of political oppression. This selection of poetry has been masterfully rendered into English for the first time by Donald Nicholson-Smith and introduced by the eminent poet and critic Pierre Joris--the first in translation to be chosen by Laabi himself.

La Bibliothèque littéraire du jeune Européen by Guillaume Travers,Alain de Benoist Summary

Venue d'outre-Atlantique, la « cancel culture » menace de saper les fondements de notre civilisation : statues déboulonnées, auteurs classiques rayés des programmes scolaires, livres mis à l'index. Face à cela, il est urgent de faire oeuvre de transmission, en sortant de l'oubli ou en mettant en lumière des oeuvres fondatrices.Dans un premier volume, la Bibliothèque du jeune Européen, Alain de Benoist et Guillaume Travers présentaient 200 essais pour « apprendre à penser ». Ce second volume est tout entier consacré aux oeuvres de fiction, des récits mythologiques à la poésie, en passant évidemment par le roman ou la bande dessinée. Plus de 400 oeuvres sont présentées et analysées, offrant un précieux guide de lecture pour tous les âges. Le panorama ainsi offert, de l'Antiquité à nos jours, des pays latins à la Scandinavie, de l'Irlande à la Russie, donne à voir la richesse de l'univers esthétique européen. Les sensibilités qui s'y incarnent, les styles qui nous élèvent, les émotions dont on s'enivre par les grandes oeuvres, dessinent par petites touches la vaste fresque de notre héritage culturel propre. Alain de Benoist, essayiste, philosophe, est l'auteur d'une centaine de livres portant sur la philosophie politique et l'histoire des idées. Il a récemment publié Les démons du bien (2013), Au-delà des droits de l'homme (2016), Le moment populiste (2017), Décroissance ou toujours plus ? (2018), Contre le libéralisme (2019) et L'homme qui n'avait pas de père (2021).Guillaume Travers est universitaire et collaborateur à la revue Éléments. Il a récemment publié Économie médiévale et société féodale (2020), Capitalisme moderne et société de marché (2021) et Corporations et corporatisme (2021).

A reculons comme une écrevisse by Umberto Eco Summary

Les textes réunis dans ce livre ont été écrits entre janvier 2000 et fin 2005 : le 11 septembre, la guerre en Afganistan, la guerre en Irak et l’instauration en Italie d’un régime de populisme médiatique... C’est dire si, depuis la fin du dernier millénaire, l’humanité a évolué à reculons d’une manière dramatique. A croire que l'Histoire, épuisée par les bonds qu'elle a accomplis au cours des deux précédents millénaires, s'enroule sur elle-même et marche rapidement du pas de l’écrevisse, à reculons... Ce livre ne propose pas tant de recommencer à aller de l'avant que d'arrêter, au moins un peu, ce mouvement rétrograde : Après la chute du mur de Berlin, il a fallu exhumer les atlas de 1914 pour retrouver les frontières. Après la Guerre Froide, c’est le retour de la Guerre Chaude. Le choc entre Islam et Chrétienté est aujourd’hui pire qu’au temps des Croisades et l’Europe crie à nouveau : « Au secours, Maman, voilà les Turcs ! ». Le fantôme du Péril Jaune est ressuscité. On a rouvert la polémique anti-darwinienne du XIXe siècle. Voici l’antisémitisme qui revient.

A Destiny in the Making by Boudewijn Mohr Summary

When the Wall Street banker takes the side of the indebted developing countries in his feature articles reviewing the impact of the global sovereign debt crisis of the 1980s in the Dutch daily NRC-Handelsblad, it is time to leave banking. He is attracted to Unicef’s vision and goal of Health for All and its tireless pursuit of structural economic adjustment programmes with a human face. In Africa, Boudewijn Mohr jumps into Unicef’s hands-on work in the field. He spearheads the clearing of landmines in Unicef project areas in Mozambique, and engages with children throughout his travels on the continent. Thus he can be found playing football with former child soldiers in Monrovia; touring Nouakchott with street children who show him the tricks of pick pocketing; or gate crashing a diamond mine that exploits child labour near Kenema in the rebel-infested east of Sierra Leone. His stories are both an adventure and the search of fulfilment but at the same time a call to all those who want to do more and are uncertain of what the world holds. Part of the proceeds of this book are going to 'Hands-Up Foundation', a British charity working with Syrian doctors and nurses in Syria under harsh circumstances.

The Cloven Viscount by Italo Calvino Summary

When a nobleman is split in two, his separate halves pursue different adventures in a fantastically macabre tale by the author of Invisible Cities. It is the seventeenth century, and the Viscount Medardo of Terralba must go into battle against the Turks. But the inexperienced warrior is soon bisected lengthwise by a cannonball. Through a miracle of stitching, one half of him survives, returning to his feudal estate to lead a lavishly evil life. But soon his other, virtuous half appears—also very much alive. When the two halves become rivals for the love of the same woman, there’s no telling the lengths each will go to in order to win. Now available in an independent volume for the first time, this deliciously bizarre novella of is Calvino at his most devious and winning.

Republic of Islamophobia by James Wolfreys Summary

Why does Islamophobia dominate public debate in France? Islamophobia in France is rising, with Muslims subjected to unprecedented scrutiny of what they wear, eat and say. Championed by Marine Le Pen and drawing on the French colonial legacy, France's 'new secularism' gives racism a respectable veneer. Jim Wolfreys exposes the dynamic driving this intolerance: a society polarized by inequality, and the authoritarian neoliberalism of the French political mainstream. This officially sanctioned Islamophobia risks going unchallenged. It has divided the traditional anti-racist movement and undermined the left's opposition to bigotry. Wolfreys deftly unravels the problems facing those trying to confront today's rise in racism. Republic of Islamophobia illuminates both the uniqueness of France's anti-Muslim backlash and its broader implications for the West.

Museums in Postcolonial Europe by Dominic Thomas Summary

The history of European nation-building and identity formation is inextricably connected with museums, and the role they play in displaying the acquired spoils and glorious symbols of geopolitical power in order to mobilize public support for expansionist ventures. This book examines the contemporary debate surrounding the museum in postcolonial Europe. Although there is no consensus on the European colonial experience, the process of decolonization in Europe has involved an examination of the museum’s place, and ethnic minorities and immigrants have insisted upon improved representation in the genealogies of European nation-states. Museological practices have been subjected to greater scrutiny in light of these political and social transformations. In addition to the refurbishment and restructuring of colonial-era museums, new spaces have also been inaugurated to highlight the contemporary importance of museums in postcolonial Europe, as well as the significance of incorporating the perspective of postcolonial European populations into these spaces. This book includes contributions from leading experts in their fields and represents a comparative trans-historical and transcolonial examination which contextualises and reinterpretates to the legacies and experiences of European museums. This book was published as a special issue of Africa and Black Diaspora: An International Journal.

Civil Disorder, Domestic Terrorism and Education Policy by Jonathan S. James,Jan Germen Janmaat Summary

This book explores the links between education policy and occurrences of civil disorder and domestic terrorism in England and France. Since 2001, both England and France have experienced outbreaks of rioting in which young people of immigrant origin have been implicated: both have also been the targets of domestic terror attacks perpetrated by their own citizens. Both countries have had similar experiences of immigration since the end of the Second World War, but they are considered to have taken divergent approaches to immigrant integration and education. While Britain has tended towards a multicultural race relations approach, France veers towards a Republican assimilationist approach. Through the analysis of policy discourse and documents, the authors seek to establish whether these distinct approaches to immigrant integration and education policy have been maintained or whether they are converging. This book will appeal to students and scholars of education policy as well as immigration and integration in both France and England.

African Art Reframed by Bennetta Jules-Rosette,J.R. Osborn Summary

Once seen as a collection of artifacts and ritual objects, African art now commands respect from museums and collectors. Bennetta Jules-Rosette and J.R. Osborn explore the reframing of African art through case studies of museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Africa. The authors take a three-pronged approach. Part One ranges from curiosity cabinets to virtual websites to offer a history of ethnographic and art museums and look at their organization and methods of reaching out to the public. In the second part, the authors examine museums as ecosystems and communities within communities, and they use semiotic methods to analyze images, signs, and symbols drawn from the experiences of curators and artists. The third part introduces innovative strategies for displaying, disseminating, and reclaiming African art. The authors also propose how to reinterpret the art inside and outside the museum and show ways of remixing the results. Drawing on extensive conversations with curators, collectors, and artists, African Art Reframed is an essential guide to building new exchanges and connections in the dynamic worlds of African and global art.
