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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Transcending Boundaries by Sandra L. Beckett Summary

Transcending Boundaries: Writing for a Dual Audience of Children and Adults is a collection of essays on twentieth-century authors who cross the borders between adult and children's literature and appeal to both audiences. This collection of fourteen essays by scholars from eight countries constitutes the first book devoted to the art of crosswriting the child and adult in twentieth-century international literature. Sandra Beckett explores the multifaceted nature of crossover literature and the diverse ways in which writers cross the borders to address a dual readership of children and adults. It considers classics such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Pinocchio, with particular emphasis on post-World War II literature. The essays in Transcending Boundaries clearly suggest that crossover literature is a major, widespread trend that appears to be sharply on the rise.

Historical Dictionary of French Literature by John Flower Summary

Almost all of us know French literature, even if we don’t know French, because it is probably the second largest and certainly the most translated into English. And, even if we don’t read, we would have seen film and television versions (think Count of Monte-Cristo) and even a musical rendition (Les Mis). So this is a particularly interesting volume in the literature series, since it covers French literature from the earliest times to the present. It is also a particularly rich literature, espousing ever genre from poetry, to novel, to biography, to drama, and adopting every style, including realism and surrealism, and expressing the views of all classes and political stands, with recently strong feminist and gay strains. Obviously, the core dictionary section includes among its panoply of often substantial and detailed entries, hundreds of authors, dozens of significant works, the various styles mentioned above and many others, events that have impacted literature such as the Dreyfus Affair and the Algerian War, and literary prizes. The chronology manages to cover about 1,200 years of literary output. And the introduction sets it all out neatly from one historical and literary period to the next. The bibliography, broken down by period and author, directs us to further reading in both French and English.

Baroque Fictions by Margaret Elizabeth Colvin Summary

This volume is the first in-depth study of the French novelist Marguerite Yourcenar's fiction to contend that the author's texts exhibit in unexpected ways numerous characteristics of the neobaroque. This subversive, postmodern aesthetic privileges extravagant artistic play, flux, and heterogeneity. In demonstrating the affinity of Yourcenar's texts with the neobaroque, the author of this study casts doubt on their presumed transparency and stability, qualities associated with the French neoclassical tradition of the past century, where the Yourcenarian œuvre is most often placed. Yourcenar's election to the prestigious, tradition-bound French Academy in 1981 as its first female “immortal” cemented her already well-established niche in the twentieth-century French literary pantheon. A self-taught classicist, historian, and modern-day French moralist, Yourcenar has been praised for her polished, “classical” style and analyzed for her use of myth and universal themes. While those factors at first seem to justify amply the neoclassical label by which Yourcenar is most widely recognized, this study's close reading of four of her fictions reveals instead the texts' opacity and subversive resistance to closure, their rejection of stable interpretations, and their deconstruction of postmodern Grand Narratives. Theirs is a neobaroque “logic,” which stresses the absence of theoretical assurances and the limitations of reason. The coincidence of the new millennium — which in so many ways reflects Yourcenar's disquieting vision — and her centenary in 2003 affords not so much an excuse to reject the author's neoclassical label, but rather theobligation to reassess it in light of contemporary discourses. This study will be of interest to students of twentieth-century French fiction and comparative literature, especially that of the latter half of the twentieth century.

The Juggler of Notre Dame and the Medievalizing of Modernity by Jan M. Ziolkowski Summary

This ambitious and vivid study in six volumes explores the journey of a single, electrifying story, from its first incarnation in a medieval French poem through its prolific rebirth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Juggler of Notre Dame tells how an entertainer abandons the world to join a monastery, but is suspected of blasphemy after dancing his devotion before a statue of the Madonna in the crypt; he is saved when the statue, delighted by his skill, miraculously comes to life. Jan Ziolkowski tracks the poem from its medieval roots to its rediscovery in late nineteenth-century Paris, before its translation into English in Britain and the United States. The visual influence of the tale on Gothic revivalism and vice versa in America is carefully documented with lavish and inventive illustrations, and Ziolkowski concludes with an examination of the explosion of interest in The Juggler of Notre Dame in the twentieth century and its place in mass culture today. In this volume Jan Ziolkowski follows the juggler of Notre Dame as he cavorts through new media, including radio, television, and film, becoming closely associated with Christmas and embedded in children’s literature. Presented with great clarity and simplicity, Ziolkowski's work is accessible to the general reader, while its many new discoveries will be valuable to academics in such fields and disciplines as medieval studies, medievalism, philology, literary history, art history, folklore, performance studies, and reception studies.

Varian Studies Volume Three by Leonardo de Arrizabalaga y Prado Summary

Heliogabalus and Elagabalus are names given since late antiquity to the mythical or legendary avatar of Varius Avitus Bassianus. Varius was Roman emperor AD 218–222, ruling as Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. He was simultaneously High Priest of the Syrian sun god Elagabal. Heliogabalus and Elagabalus, names derived from Elagabal, are often used as misnomers for Varius himself, but more properly designate his avatar, who is far better known than Varius. The Varian avatar, under these and other names, survives and thrives in historiography, as well as in more avowedly creative literature, music, dance, the visual arts, and popular culture. This book, the third in Varian Studies, is partly based on the Varian Symposium, held in Cambridge in 2005. It contains studies of the historical Varius, of some of his courtiers, of his god Elagabal, and of his avatar, Heliogabalus or Elagabalus.
