LE PARCOURS MYTHIQUE DE MARGUERITE YOURCENAR : by , Summary

Comment découvrir sous l'être humain ce qu'il y a en lui de durable, d'éternel ? Par le mythe. L'écriture de Marguerite Yourcenar est une écriture mythique. Qu'elle puise dans le vivier de la mythologie grecque pour Feux ou dans une matière plus variée pour Nouvelles orientales, Marguerite Yourcenar garde du mythe l'essentiel: l'exigence mythique. Elle a recours au mythe parce que le mythe anime l'écriture d'une éthique et d'une esthétique de la transcendance. En passant de Feux à Nouvelles orientales, Marguerite Yourcenar passe du mythe à la littérature, envisage son existence par et pour l'écriture: l'écriture sera sa mission.

The Troubling Play of Gender by Maria Stadter Fox,ria Stadter Fox Summary

"Although these three modernist writers were not primarily playwrights, as expatriates they were interested in the Euripidean theme of women in exile: each independently chose to rewrite Euripides' Hippolytus, a play in which the protagonist is a woman in exile whose speech, writing, and passion are deeply problematic. Each author approaches the Euripidean material in a different way: Tsvetaeva focuses on gender in language, Yourcenar explores the gendering of a self, and H.D. performs the undoing of gendered oppositions."--BOOK JACKET.

Marguerite Yourcenar a la surface du temps by Colette Gaudin Summary

L'oeuvre de Marguerite Yourcenar vise très large, aussi bien dans l'espace que dans le temps. Elle allie de manière unique son ambition d'universalité à l'attention modeste aux aspects les plus singuliers de l'existence et aux êtres les plus obscurs de l'univers. L'inquiétude du temps est le foyer central d'où se relance toujours son écriture. Le temps demeure pour elle impensable, inscrutable, impossible à unifier et à totaliser, mais ses apories nourissent l'imaginaire. Le temps ne vous coûte rien, à vous les philosophes : il existe pourtant puisqu'il nous sucre comme des fruits et nous dessèche comme des herbes, dit un personnage de Feux.Cependant, à défaut de mourir pour échapper au temps, vivre consiste en ripostes créatrices. De ses premiers récits jusqu'aux chroniques familales qui forment Le Labyrinthe du monde,en passant par les romans et les pièces de théâtre, Yourcenar tisse une poétique du temps qui fait leur place à la permanence des mythes, aux difficiles questions de la connaissance historique et du désenchantement de l'histoire, et à la quête de la transmission généalogique. La présente étude s'articule selon les grandes lignes de cette poétique et met en lumière la manière dont Yourcenar orchestre les temporalités plurielles sur l'horizon d'un temps unique.

Yeux ouverts, yeux fermés by Carmen Ana Pont Summary

Les Songes et les sorts, réponse yourcenarienne au journal intime, a été jusqu'à ce jour presque oublié par la critique. Le présent ouvrage comble cette lacune en démontrant que la teneur autobiographique et le style de ces transcriptions oniriques, qui accompagnèrent Yourcenar pendant un demi-siècle, illuminent l'ensemble de son oeuvre. Car le rêve rencontre la double poétique de l'aveu yourcenarien: le désir de se cacher et celui de se raconter. La stratégie de l'ambiguïté, qui découle de ce paradoxe, brouille l'histoire du songe et celle de l'auteur, efface les limites du texte littéraire par le biais de l'intertextualité, et confond rêve et vie, réel et imaginaire, écrivain et personnage. Ainsi, le songe, thème, acte, style, langage, métaphore et prétexte, ouvre un univers de correspondances où romantisme, baroque et mythologie se joignent aux mythes personnels de l'auteur pour nous dévoiler quelques secrets et pièges de l'écriture. Oscillant entre l'image de l'écrivain qui met en scène la mort symbolique de l'amour (Songes de 1938), et celle du créateur vieilli qui redoute la mort physique de l'être aimé (Dossier de 1991), cette étude nous révèle une Yourcenar fragile et inattendue, qui rêve pour résister et faire face à sa propre mortalité.

Time Regained by Delia Ungureanu Summary

Over the past 30 years, the fields of world literature and world cinema have developed on parallel but largely separate tracks, with little recognition of their underlying similarities and the ways that each can learn from the other. Time Regained does not move from literature to cinema, but exists simultaneously in both fields. The 7 filmmakers selected here, Andrei Tarkovsky, Akira Kurosawa, Martin Scorsese, Raúl Ruíz, Wong Kar Wai, Stephen Daldry, and Paolo Sorrentino, are themselves also writers or people with literary training, and they produce a new type of world cinema thanks to their understanding of the world simultaneously through literature and film. In the process, their films produce new readings of literary texts that world literature studies wouldn't have been able to achieve with its own instruments. Time Regained examines how filmmakers build on literature to reconfigure the world as a landscape of dreams and how they use film to reinvent the narrative techniques of the authors on whom they draw. The selected filmmakers draw inspiration from French surrealists, modernists Marcel Proust, Virginia Woolf, and Marguerite Yourcenar, and predecessors such as Dante and Cao Xueqin. In the process, these filmmakers cross the borders between film and literature, nation and world, dream and reality.

Gothic Peregrinations by Agnieszka ?owczanin,Katarzyna Ma?ecka Summary

For over two hundred years, the Gothic has remained fixed in the European and American imaginations, steadily securing its position as a global cultural mode in recent decades. The globalization of Gothic studies has resulted in the proliferation of new critical concepts and a growing academic interest in the genre. Yet, despite its longevity, unprecedented expansion, and accusations of prescriptiveness, the Gothic remains elusive and without a straightforward definition. Gothic Peregrinations: The Unexplored and Re-explored Territories looks at Gothic productions largely marginalized in the studies of the genre, including the European absorption of and response to the Gothic. This collection of essays identifies landmarks and ley lines in the insufficiently probed territories of Gothic scholarship and sets out to explore its unmapped regions. This volume not only examines Gothic peregrinations from a geographical perspective but also investigates how the genre has been at odds with strict demarcation of generic boundaries. Analyzing texts which come from outside the Gothic canon, yet prove to be deeply indebted to it, like bereavement memoirs, stories produced by and about factory girls of Massachusetts, and the Mattel Monster High franchise, this volume illuminates the previously unexplored fields in Gothic studies. The chapters in this volume reveal the truly transnational expansion of the Gothic and the importance of exchange – exchange now seen not only as crucial to the genre’s gestation, or vital to the processes of globalization, but also to legitimizing Gothic studies in the global world.

Japan, France, and East-West Aesthetics by Jan Hokenson Summary

Japan, France is the first comprehensive history of the idea of Japan in France, as tracked through close readings of canonical French writers and thinkers from the 1860s to the present. The focus is literary and intellectual, the context cultural. The discovery of Japanese woodblock prints in Paris, following the opening of Japan to the West in 1854, was a startling aesthetic encounter that played a crucial role in the Impressionists' and Post-Impressionists' invention of Modernism. French writers also experimented with Japanese aesthetics in their own work, in ways that similarly thread into the foundations of literary Modernism. Japonisme (the practice of adapting Japanese aesthetics to creative work in the West) became a sustained French tradition, in texts by such writers as Zola and Proust through Barthes and Bonnefoy. Each generation discovered new Japanese arts and genres, commented on the work of their predecessors in this vein, and broke still more ground in East-West aesthetics to innovate in the forms of Western literature and thought. To read literary history in this way unsettles Eurocentric assumptions about many of the French writers who are commonly considered the

Borges, Buddhism and World Literature by Dominique Jullien Summary

This book follows the renunciation story in Borges and beyond, arguing for its centrality as a Borgesian compositional trope and as a Borgesian prism for reading a global constellation of texts. The renunciation story at the heart of Buddhism, that of a king who leaves his palace to become an ascetic, fascinated Borges because of its cross-cultural adaptability and metamorphic nature, and because it resonated so powerfully across philosophy, politics and aesthetics. From the story and its many variants, Borges’s essays formulated a 'morphological' conception of literature (borrowing the idea from Goethe), whereby a potentially infinite number of stories were generated by transformation of a finite number of 'archetypes'. The king-and-ascetic encounter also tells a powerful political story, setting up a confrontation between power and authority; Borges’s own political predicament is explored against the rich background of truth-telling renouncers. In its poetic variant, the renunciation archetype morphs into stories about art and artists, with renunciation a key requirement of the creative process: the discussion weaves in and out of Borges to highlight modern writers’ debt to asceticism. Ultimately, the enigmatic appeal of the renunciation story aligns it with the open-endedness of modern parables.

Marguerite Yourcenar en poésie by Achmy Halley Summary

Marguerite Yourcenar en poésie est la première étude critique consacrée aux rapports complexes et féconds entretenus par une figure singulière de la littérature française du XXe siècle avec la poésie. Lectrice fervente dont la bibliothèque témoigne de la diversité de ses passions poétiques, traductrice et critique de plusieurs grandes figures de la poésie universelle mais aussi poète fidèle à la tradition française héritée de Hugo et de Baudelaire, Yourcenar n'a cessé de questionner le fait poétique, véritable source souterraine qui irrigue l'ensemble de son oeuvre. De sa découverte de la poésie à ses choix esthétiques à contre-courant des avant-gardes qui ont marqué son époque, du décryptage de ses propres poèmes à sa pratique de la traduction comme réécriture complice, de ses relations avec les poètes de son temps à l'analyse de son activité de critique, pour la première fois, l'auteur retrace l'itinéraire intime de Marguerite Yourcenar à la fois au coeur et en marge de la grande poésie du XXe siècle. Nourri de nombreux textes et témoignages inédits et explorant des domaines encore en friche, comme l'analyse génétique de la bibliothèque de Marguerite Yourcenar, l'essai d'Achmy Halley lève le voile sur un pan non négligeable de l'oeuvre de l'auteur de Mémoires d'Hadrien, laissé jusqu'alors dans l'ombre. En proposant, selon la belle formule de Michel Foucault, une « archéologie du silence » qui entoure la relation de Yourcenar avec la poésie, l'auteur redonne à l'acte poétique la place qui lui revient au coeur du processus d'écriture de celle qui se considérait avant tout comme poète.

European Liberty by P. Manent,R. Hausheer,W. Karpinski,W. Kaiser Summary

This book has been published to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Erasmus Prize and underline the importance of the four laureates who received the Prize in the jubileum year. Raymon Aron, Isaiah Berlin, Leszek Kolakowski and Marguerite Y ourcenarcan be considered four outstanding representatives of the unique European intellectual tradition that is characterised by its critical sense and respect for freedom of the individual. It is for this reason that they have been awarded the Erasmus Prize. The essays included in this book are devoted to these four personalities, a Frenchman strongly influenced by the German philosophical tradition, a Russian who has settled in Oxford, a philosopher banned from his native Poland, and a Frenchwoman of Belgian origin living in America. Each has demonstrated in his or her own way that the ideas on and ideals of European culture and tradition are oflasting value. Each recognizes that human values can only flourish in a pluralistic society, a society in which 'Ie juste milieu' must constantly be sought. The temptation to succumb to monistic, dogmatic and intolerant tendencies that continue to threaten our civilisation not only from the outside but also from within, must be continually resisted. The dignity of man reaches full maturity first and foremost in a society in which man is the moulder and maker of himself and freedom of the individual stands central.

People and Stories / Gente Y Cuentos by Sarah Hirschman Summary

"Sarah Hirschman's book is ... really a manifesto for an approach to education that does all these more human, more important things." -Danielle Allen, Professor, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey "I'd love to see People and Stories programs for the parents of children in every at-risk school district in the country." -Robert Hass, US Poet Laureate, 1995-1997 People and Stories / Gente y Cuentos describes how men and women on welfare or in rehabilitation centers, prisoners, rural workers, disadvantaged youth, or just ordinary community members are offered the chance to experience literature in a way they have not been able to in the past. Founded by Sarah Hirschman, People and Stories / Gente y Cuentos encompasses groups of common, often under-served adults in the United States, France, and Colombia who enjoy reading and discussing works of literature. Upon attending a seminar with the philosopher, Paulo Freire, and working with groups in New York's Lower East Side and Dorchester, Massachusetts, she created Gente y Cuentos in Spanish. Some years later, the English-language People and Stories program was added. Currently, Gens et Recits in French is being developed in Paris and in the southwest of France. This book describes the various influences that led to the development of this method. The clarity of the explanations and the attention to detail should help those who want to organize similar discussion groups in their own communities.
