Une leçon de musique donnée aux mots : les collaborations de Michel Butor avec Ludwig van Beethoven et Henri Pousseur
Coste, Marion
Paris : Presses Sorbonne nouvelle, 2017
"Michel Butor a écrit plusieurs oeuvres qui font se rencontrer littérature et musique. Cet ouvrage s'intéresse aux "concerts-conférences" données par Butor à propos de l'oeuvre de Ludwig van Beethoven et à Votre Faust, "fantaisie variable genre opéra" composée avec Henri Pousseur. Au contact de la musique des deux compositeurs l'écriture de Michel Butor se modifie car l'écrivain reprend aux musiciens des structures et des procédés de composition. Naissent alors des oeuvres hybrides qui interrogent notre rapport à l'altérité et notre capacité au dialogue. Cet ouvrage s'attache à montrer que Michel Butor crée ce qui est nommé ici des "cosmos culturels". Repérant une même logique génératrice dans différentes oeuvres d'art, appartenant à des médias et à des époques variées, il offre par son écriture un espace dans lequel les oeuvres peuvent dialoguer ensemble, par le biais de la citation notamment, tout en conservant leur spécificité."--Page 4 of cover.

Mallarmé : Rancière, Milner, Badiou
Boncardo, Robert, author
London : Rowman & Littlefield International, [2017]
The subject to which everything is attached -- "A singular invention of language and thought": Jacques Rancière -- "I believed I owed Mallarmé the truth": Jean-Claude Milner -- "Mallarmé said it all": Alain Badiou.

From the post-War writings of Sartre and Blanchot to the post-structuralism of Jacques Derrida and Julia Kristeva, French philosophers have consistently debated the poetry of Stéphane Mallarmé, almost as a rite of passage. Alain Badiou, Jean-Claude Milner and Jacques Rancière — three of the most important philosophers alive today — are no exception, having written extensively about the poet since the 1960’s and 70’s up until today. This book contains a series of interviews with these three figures on Mallarmé, as well as an extended introduction that places their thought on literature into dialogue. Speaking about their personal and philosophical relationships with each other, on methods of reading, on poetry and politics, and poetry and mathematics, each philosopher reflects on their life-long engagement with Mallarmé, as well as on the different, often incommensurable, images of the poet their philosophies have generated. As Rancière, Milner and Badiou point to the past importance and future directions Mallarmé gives to thought, these interviews lend credence to Barthes’ remark that 2all we can do is repeat Mallarmé – and it is good that we do so3. --

Ninette of Sin Street : a novella
Danon, Vitalis, 1897-1969, author
Stanford, California : Stanford University Press, [2017]
"Ninette is an unlikely protagonist: Compelled by poverty to work as a prostitute, she dreams of a better life and and an education for her son. Plucky and street-wise, she enrolls her son in the local school and the story unfolds as she narrates her life to the school's headmistress. Ninette's account is both a classic rags-to-riches tale and a subtle, incisive critique of French colonialism."-- From back cover.

[London] : Penguin Books, 2016
He opened the door for her and watched her walk away down the huge corridor, then hesitate at the top of the stairs. Heads turned as she passed. You sensed she came from a different world, the world of the night, and there was something almost indecent about her in the harsh light of a winter's day' A young cabaret dancer in a black silk dress leads Inspector Maigret into a seamy world of nightclubs, drug addiction and exploitation on the streets of Montmartre.

Like death
Maupassant, Guy de, 1850-1893, author
New York : New York Review Books, [2017]
"Olivier Bertin is at the height of his career as a painter. After making his name with his Cleopatra, he went on to establish himself as "the chosen painter of the Parisiennes, the most adroit and ingenious artist to reveal their grace, their figures, and their souls." And though his hair may be white, he remains a handsome, vigorous, and engaging bachelor, a prized guest at every table and salon. Anne, the comtesse de Guilleroy, is a youthful forty, the wife of a busy politician. The painter and the comtesse have been lovers for many years. Anne's daughter, Annette--the spitting image of her mother in her lovely youth--has finished her schooling and is returning to Paris. Her parents are putting together an excellent match. Everything is as it should be--until the painter and comtesse are each seized by an agonizing suspicion, like death . . . In its devastating depiction of the treacherous nature of love, Like Death is more than the equal of Swann's Way. Richard Howard's new translation brings out all the penetration and poetry of this masterpiece of nineteenth-century fiction"--

Nest in the bones : stories
Di Benedetto, Antonio, 1922-1986, author
Brooklyn, NY : Archipelago Books, 2017
"Philosophically engaged and darkly moving, the twenty stories in Nest in the Bones span three decades from Antonio di Benedetto's wildly various career. From his youth in Argentina to his exile in Spain after enduring imprisonment and torture under the military dictatorship during the so-called "dirty war" to his return in the 1980s, Benedetto's kinetic stories move effortlessly between genres, examining civilization's subtle but violent imprint on human consciousness. A late-twentieth century master of the short form and revered by his contemporaries, Nest in the Bones is the first comprehensive volume of Benedetto's stories available in English"--

The table
Ponge, Francis, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Wakefield Press, [2017]
""Written over a series of early mornings from 1967 to 1973 in his seclusion at his country home, Mas des Vergers, The Table offers a final chapter in Francis Ponge's endless interrogation of the unassuming objects in his life: in this case, the table upon which he wrote. In his labored employment of words to destroy words and get at the presence lying beneath his elbow, Ponge charts out a space of silent consolation that lies beyond (and challenges) scientific objectivity and poetic transport. This is one of Ponge's most personal, overlooked, and because it was the last project he had been working on when he passed away, his least processed works. It reveals the personal struggle Ponge engaged in throughout all of his writing, a hesitant uncertainty he usually pared away from his published texts that is at touching opposition to the manufactured, "durable mother" of the table on and of which he here writes. Ponge's homage to this "soil for the pen" makes for an indefinable text: a poetic phenomenology by a dictionary flaneur that lies somewhere between personal diary, writerly testament, and contemplative effort to discern and define a durability that underlies the ultimate transitoriness of our lives and our efforts, written or otherwise." -- Publisher's description

Dante, Columbus and the prophetic tradition : spiritual imperialism in the Italian imagination
Watt, Mary Alexandra, author
London : Routledge, 2017
Introduction: setting sail -- Columbus' journey to the end of the world -- The new Jerusalem and the end of time -- Earthly paradise and the westward trajectory -- "Beyond the curve of the sea": Columbus and Dante -- Ulysses, Columbus and human folly -- Clumbus, Aeneas and Paul -- An Italian apostle to the New World -- Trouble in paradise: Ariosto, Fracastoro and Gambara -- Tasso, Stella and the apotheosis of Columbus -- Chiabrera, Stiglani and a world turned inside out -- Epilogue: homeward bound.

Exploring the diverse factors that persuaded Christopher Columbus that he could reach the fabled "East" by sailing west, this book considers, first, the impact of Dante's Divine Comedy and the apocalyptic prophetic tradition that it reflects, on Columbus's perception both of the cosmos and the eschatological meaning of his journey to what he called an 'other world.' In so doing, the book considers how affinities between himself and the exiled poet might have led Columbus to see himself as a divinely appointed agent of the apocalypse and his enterprise as the realization of the spiritual journey chronicled in the Comedy. As part of this study, the book necessarily examines the cultural space that Dante's poem, its geography, cosmography and eschatology, enjoyed in late fifteenth century Spain as well as Columbus's own exposure to it. As it considers how Italian writers and artists of the late Renaissance and Counter Reformation received the news of Columbus' 'discovery' and appropriated the figure of Dante and the pseudo-prophecy of the Comedy to interpret its significance, the book examines how Tasso, Ariosto, Stradano and Stigliani, in particular, forge a link between Dante and Columbus to present the latter as an inheritor of an apostolic tradition that traces back to the Aeneid. It further highlights the extent to which Italian writers working in the context of the Counter Reformation, use a Dantean filter to propagate the notion of Columbus as a new Paul, that is, a divinely appointed apostle to the New World, and the Roman Church and as the rightful emperor of the souls encountered there.

Portrayals of Antigone in Portugal : 20th and 21st century rewritings of the Antigone myth
edited by Carlos Morais, Lorna Hardwick, Maria de Fátima Silva
Leiden ; Brill, [2017]
"Portrayals of Antigone in Portugal gathers a collection of essays on the Portuguese drama rewritings of this Theban myth produced in the 20th and 21st centuries. For each of the cases analysed, the Portuguese historical, political and cultural context is described. This perspective is expanded through a dialogue with coeval European events. As concerns Portugal, this results principally in political and feminist approaches to the texts. Since the importation of the Sophoclean model is often indirect, the volume includes comparisons with intermediate sources, namely French (Cocteau, Anouilh) and Spanish (María Zambrano), which were extremely influential on the many and diversified versions written in Portugal during this period. Contributors to this volume are: Inês Alves Mendes, Rosa Andújar, Maria do Céu Fialho, Maria de Fátima Silva, Maria Fernanda Brasete, Lorna Hardwick, Aurora López, Carlos Morais, Konstantinos Nikoloutsos, Andrés Pociña, Ália Rosa Rodrigues, Nuno Simões Rodrigues, and Stéphanie Urdician."--

Tan delicioso peligro : (consideraciones sobre literatura y años dificiles)
Estévez, Abilio, 1954- author
San Juan, P.R. : Folium, 2016
Me gusta la palabra viaje -- La verdadera Vida está en otra parte -- Casal, Huysmans y el decadentismo -- Imagen de París -- Palabras en París -- Y mi biblioteca ardió una noche -- La pasión fría de Virgilio Piñera -- Un retrato posible -- ¿Con quién casamos a Eugenia?

"El "delicioso peligro" de la escritura, ese balance siempre precario entre la exploración sistemática del mundo interior y la mirada alerta a la realidad histórica, supone un aprendizaje a la vez gozoso y arriesgado. Tal vez el peligro más evidente que enfrenta el escritor sea el relacionado con el carácter público de su figura. El destierro, la censura, la prisión y la muerte han sido destinos posibles para aquellos que han aceptado el reto de imaginar otra realidad. Basta repasar someramente la historia del siglo pasado para dar con las imágenes brutales de ese hecho. Pero ¿quién que haya descubierto el maravilloso poder de las palabras para transformar la realidad puede renunciar a ese gozo? El presente volumen reúne una selección de nueve conferencias ofrecidas por Abilio Estévez en su periplo por ciudades de Europa y América durante la pasada década. En ellas, el autor examina distintos aspectos de la formación del escritor: las lecturas, el destierro, los maestros, la invención de una tradición que pueda reclamar como propia. Leídos en su conjunto, sin embargo, estos escritos se transforman en una poderosa autobiografía literaria, en el insobornable testimonio de fe en la literatura de uno de los escritores imprescindibles de nuestro tiempo. Tomás Lausell."--Page 4 of cover.

Petrarch and the literary culture of nineteenth-century France : translation, appropriation, transformation
Rushworth, Jennifer, 1987- author
Woodbridge : The Boydell Press, 2017
Was Petrarch French? This book explores the various answers to that bold question offered by French readers and translators of Petrarch working in a period of less well-known but equally rich Petrarchism: the nineteenth century. It considers both translations and rewritings: the former comprise not only Petrarch's celebrated Italian poetry but also his often neglected Latin works; the latter explore Petrarch's influence on and presence in French novels as well as poetry of the period, both in and out of the canon. Nineteenth-century French Petrarchism has its roots in the later part of the previous century, with formative contributions from Voltaire, Rousseau, and, in particular, the abbe de Sade. To these literary catalysts must be added the unification of Avignon with France at the Revolution, as well as anniversary commemorations of Petrarch's birth and death celebrated in Avignon and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse across the period (1804-1874-1904). Situated at the crossroads of reception history, medievalism, and translation studies, this investigation uncovers tensions between the competing construction of a national, French Petrarch and a local, Avignonese or Provencal poet. Taking Petrarch as its litmus test, this book also probing questions about the bases of nationality, identity, and belonging.

The illustrious House of Ramires
Queirós, Eça de, 1845-1900, author
New York : New Directions Publishing Corporation, 2017
Eça de Queiros's superlative novel The Illustrious House of Ramires (originally published in 1900) is presented here in a sparkling new translation by Margaret Jull Costa. The favorite novel of many Eça de Queiros aficionados, this late masterpiece, wickedly funny and yet profoundly tender, centers on Gonçalo Ramires, heir to a family so aristocratic that it predates even the kings of Portugal. Gonçalo--charming but disastrously effete, idealistic but hopelessly weak--muddles through his pampered life, burdened by a grand ambition. He is determined to write a great historical novel based on the heroic deeds of his fierce medieval ancestors. But "the record of their valor," as The London Spectator remarked, "is ironically counterpointed by his own chicanery. A combination of Don Quixote and Walter Mitty, he is continually humiliated [but he] is at the same time kind hearted. Ironic comedy is the keynote of the novel ... Eça de Queiros has justly been compared with Flaubert and Stendhal"--Back cover.

Autopsy of a father
Kramer, Pascale, 1961- author
New York : Bellevue Literary Press, 2017
"When a young woman returns to her childhood home after her estranged father's death, she begins to piece together the final years of his life. What changed him from a prominent left-wing journalist to a bitter racist who defended the murder of a defenseless African immigrant? Kramer exposes a country gripped by intolerance and violence to unearth the source of a family's fall from grace. Set in Paris and its suburbs, and inspired by the real-life scandal of a French author and intellectual, Autopsy of a Father blends sharp observations about familial dynamics with resonant political and philosophical questions--taking a scalpel to the racism and anti-immigrant sentiment spreading just beneath the skin of modern society"--

Class : a novel
Pacifico, Francesco, 1977- author,
Brooklyn, NY : Melville House Publishing, 2017
"The breakout novel by Francesco Pacifico, one of Italy's most acclaimed writers, hailed by Dana Spiotta as "brilliantly funny and weirdly subversive" Ludovica and Lorenzo live in Rome. She works in her family's bookstore, and he's a filmmaker--or, rather, a "filmmaker": so far, all he's produced is one pretentious short film that even his friends don't take seriously. But somehow, he gets a scholarship to Columbia University, and the couple decide to head to New York--specifically, to Williamsburg: the promised land. They soon fall in with a group of Italian expats--all of them with artistic ambitions and the family money to support those ambitions indefinitely. There's Nicolino, the playboy; Marcello, the aspiring rapper; Sergio, the literary scout; and a handful of others. These languidly ambitious men and women will come together and fall apart, but can they escape their fates? Can anyone? In Class, Francesco Pacifico gives a grand, subversive, formally ambitious social novel that bridges Italy and America, high and low, money and art. A novel that channels Virginia Woolf and Kanye West, Henry Miller and Lil' Wayne, Class is an unforgettable, mordantly funny account of Italians chasing the American dream"--

Discovering the hidden wisdom of the Little Prince : in search of Saint-Exupéry's lost child
Lassus, Pierre, author
New York : Arcade Publishing, 2017
"The Little Prince is revered around the world. Two hundred million copies have been sold in 270 languages; it is the fourth best-selling book of all time. Part of its allure is that is seems incredibly wise but so simple it is read as a work for children. Yet its meaning is elusive, and its place amid the writings of an adventurer and war hero acclaimed for dramatic bestsellers like Night Flight and Flight to Arras is mysterious. In this elegant, carefully argued book, Pierre Lassus reexamines the story of The Little Prince against the facts of Saint-Exupéry's own extraordinary life, from his cherished but fatherless childhood in aristocratic poverty to his career as a pioneering pilot. His plane had broken down in the desert before. He had adopted a fox, when posted at the Spanish fort of Cape Juby, in southern Morocco. He had known the world of business before becoming pilot; he had also known unrequited love. Like his little protagonist's, his body was never found after his plane disappeared in World War II. He was working on his spiritual autobiography when he died, and there too, Lassus finds resonances and keys to the understated spirituality of his last great book"--

But then he suddenly leaves the hotel, telling a cab driver he's an alcoholic headed for detox. After that he hops on an all-night bus headed across Brazil, where he begins to seduce a beautiful American woman. Next he says he's a soap opera actor, which is a bad idea--it makes the people he's hitchhiking with want to kill him. Then he impersonates a priest. He travels to yet another town, and this time he knocks on a very wrong door. The man who opens it has him in the crosshairs of a gun--the narrator passes out, and when he awakes something terrible is happening to him..."--Amazon.com.

A hilarious satire and universal exploration of the origins of power and corruption. A Zero-Sum Game uses the highly-charged election for the presidency of a residents' committee and the influence of a powerful stranger to both expose those in power and to sympathize with individuals who find themselves caught in the paradox of empowerment and impotence that is modern consumer society and the democratic state. Eduardo Rabasa is the founding editorial director of Sexto Piso, Mexico's most prominent independent publishing house, and was selected to the Hay Festival's list of the greatest Mexican authors under the age of forty.

Ties is the story of a marriage. Like many marriages, this one has been subject to strain, to attrition, to the burden of routine. Yet it has survived intact. Or so things appear. The rupture in Vanda and Aldo's marriage lies years in the past, but if one looks closely enough, the fissures and fault lines are evident. Their marriage is a cracked vase that may shatter at the slightest touch. Or perhaps it has already shattered, and nobody is willing to acknowledge the fact.

"Castelnuovo's most well known novel was The Moncalvos, here translated into English for the first time. It provides a rare portrayal of Jewish middle class life in Italy at the time. Giacomo and Gabriel Moncalvo are the main protagonists of the novel. Two brothers, living in Rome at the end of the nineteenth century, in the midst of Italy's economic and urban development after its political unification, both aspiring to climb the social ladder of the newly formed Italian nation. But while Giacomo, a university professor, remains anchored to the traditions of his Jewish up-bringing, Gabrio, a wealthy businessman, seeks assimilation and encourages his daughter to marry the sickly offspring of an old aristocratic Roman Catholic family--a marriage which will grant the family access to the most exclusive echelon of Roman society but will also entail the conversion of the daughter, Mariannina, and eventually of both her parents"--

Un adulterio
Albinati, Edoardo, author
Milano : Rizzoli, giugno 2017
"Alcune storie richiedono anni per compiersi, altre bruciano in un breve arco di tempo e in uno spazio che più è ristretto più le rende intense. Mentendo ai loro coniugi e forse anche a se stessi, i due protagonisti di questa storia rubano un fine settimana alla vita ordinaria, per consumare una passione nata da poco. A fine estate, s'imbarcano su un aliscafo che li porterà su un'isola dove il tempo è fermo e aspetta solo che gli amanti tocchino terra per animarsi. È un gesto rischioso, il loro, una febbre violenta, una prova da superare: ma la felicità sembra così vicina che basta allungare una mano per toccarla. Di Erri e Clementina, in fuga da tutto e al tempo stesso prigionieri dell'isola, Albinati non racconta la storia per intero ma si limita a mostrarci alcune foto, scattate nei vari momenti della loro avventura, da riguardare di nascosto e cancellare in fretta. È un racconto vibrante, sensuale, semplice e crudelmente sincero, anche se costruito su bugie, e le sue pagine esatte ed emozionanti si rivolgono a tutti noi: quelli a cui è capitato di vivere una relazione clandestina, quelli che serenamente la escludono o la rifuggono, quelli che in segreto la desiderano. Cosa ci attrae in una persona appena conosciuta? Perché quello che già abbiamo non ci basta? Che succede all'amore quando va tenuto nascosto?"--Dust jacket flap.

The inferno : a new verse translation
Dante Alighieri, 1265-1321, author
New York City : Arcade Publishing, 2017
"One of the world's transcendent literary masterpieces, the Inferno tells the timeless story of Dante's journey through the nine circles of hell, guided by the poet Virgil, when in midlife he strays from his path in a dark wood. In this vivid verse translation into contemporary English, Peter Thornton makes the classic work fresh again for a new generation of readers. Recognizing that the Inferno was, for Dante and his peers, not simply an allegory but the most realistic work of fiction to date, he points out that hell was a lot like Italy of Dante's time. Thornton's translation captures the individuals represented, landscapes, and psychological immediacy of the dialogues as well as Dante's poetic effects. The product of decades of passionate dedication and research, his translation has been hailed by the leading Dante scholars on both sides of the Atlantic as exceptional in its accuracy, spontaneity, and vividness. Those qualities and its detailed notes explaining Dante's world and references make it both accessible for individual readers and perfect for class adoption"--

This is what Jackie had probably felt all her life, begun in 1919 and carried out according to a secret, obstinate freedom, which made her, in a very advanced age, travel miles to go swimming on her favorite beach, Villefranche sur mer. Meanwhile, she had married, had left Lyons for Arcachon, and then, having become a young widow, had exchanged Cape Ferret for Cap Ferrat, with her warmer sea, her great summer. What did she leave to her daughter Chantal? Something indomitable, or discreetly rejected, and this intuition that swimming, this practice that leaves no trace, is the occasion of an elusive freedom, as when young girl, in the early 1930s, Jackie had, in a casual way, chained some lengths in the Grand Canal of the Palace of Versailles under the bewildered eye of the gardeners.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Editions du Seuil.

The end
Torres, Fernanda, 1965- author
Brooklyn, New York : Restless Books, 2017
"With uncanny insight into the less virtuous corners of the male psyche, Fernanda Torres brings us five friends who once milked the high life of Rio's Bossa Nova age and are now left with memories--parties, marriages, divorces, fixations, inhibitions, bad decisions--and the grim realities of getting old. Álvaro lives alone and bemoans the evils of his ex-wife. Sílvio can't give up the excesses of sex and drugs. Ribeiro is a vain, Viagra-abusing beach bum. Neto is the square, a faithful husband until the end. Ciro is the Don Juan envied by all--but the first to die. Cutting in on these swan songs are the testimonies of those the men seduced, cheated, loved, and abandoned: their wives and children. Edgy, funny, and wise, The End is a candid tropical tragicomedy and an epitaph for a lost generation of machos."--Amazon.com.

Nos richesses : roman
Adimi, Kaouther, 1986- author
Paris : Éditions du Seuil, [2017]
In 1935, Edmond Charlot was twenty years old and he returned to Algiers with a single idea in mind, to take example on Adrienne Monnier and his Parisian bookstore. As Charlot knows, his vocation is to give birth, to choose young writers from the Mediterranean, without distinction of language or religion. Placed under the aegis of Giono, its tiny bookstore is named Les Vraies Richesses. And to inaugurate his catalog, it publishes the first text of an unknown: Albert Camus. Charlot exults, ignoring that to devote his life to books is also to sacrifice it to the vagaries of misfortune. And to those of History. For revolt is rumbling in Algeria on the eve of World War II. In 2017, Ryad is the same age as Charlot in his early days. But he only feels indifference to literature. Studying in Paris, he is visiting Algiers with the task of repainting a dusty bookstore, where books soon give way to donuts. However, emptying these places is strangely complicated by the surveillance of the old Abdallah, the guardian of the temple.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Éditions du Seuil.

L'empereur à pied : roman
Majdalani, Charif, 1960- author
Paris : Éditions du Seuil, [2017]
In the middle of the nineteenth century, a man appeared with his sons in the mountains of Lebanon. His name is Khanjar Jbeili, but he will soon be nicknamed the Emperor on foot. He came to found an estate and forge his own legend. His filiation soon became one of the most illustrious in the region. But this prosperity has a price. The Emperor, in his lifetime, imposed a rule on all his descendants: one by generation will be allowed to marry and have children; his brothers and sisters, if any, will simply be called to assist him in managing the incalculable and sacred properties of the Jbeili clan. Oath, or Curse? From the beginning of the 20th century to the present, successive descendants will have to choose between free will and respect for the forbidden. Open to the world, they will travel from Mexico to China, from France of Liberation to the Balkans of the Cold War, passing through Naples, Rome and Venice, chasing chimeras, watched constantly by the shadow of the ancestral curse. Until the last of the lineage of the Jbeili, breaking with the past and its forbidden, on the eve of the twenty-first century. But at what cost ?--Translation of page 4 of cover by Éditions du Seuil.

Through the memories of her early years, Maryam recounts the abandonment of the country, the removal of her family, the loss of her toys - given to the children of Tehran under the injunction of her Communist parents - Persian, which she will alternately reject, then adopt frantically, to the point of leaving her native language buried for many years.--Page 4 of cover translated by Babelio: https://www.babelio.com/livres/Madjidi-Marx-et-la-poupee/902751

The disappearance of Émile Zola : love, literature and the Dreyfus case
Rosen, Michael, 1946- author
London : Faber & Faber, 2017
It is the evening of 18 July 1898 and the world-renowned novelist Emile Zola is on the run. His crime? Taking on the highest powers in the land with his open letter 'J'accuse' and losing. Forced to leave Paris, with nothing but the clothes he is standing in and a nightshirt wrapped in newspaper, Zola flees to England with no idea when he will return. This is the little-known story of his time in exile. Rosen has traced Zola's footsteps from the Gare du Nord to London, examining the significance of this year. The Disappearance of Zola offers an intriguing insight into the mind, the loves, the politics and the work of the great writer.

The potency of pastoral in the Hispanic Baroque
Holloway, Anne, author
Woodbridge : Tamesis, an imprint of Boydell & Brewer Ltd, 2017
'Es más difícil la parte que responde': the challenge of Baroque pastoral -- 'Con no tan dulce y mas sentido canto': a Baroque pastoral in the poetry of Pedro Soto de Rojas -- 'Con la pastoril zamarra cubierta': the spiritual poetry of Luisa de Carvajal y Mendoza -- 'Arranca de Dafne sin piedad los brazos': the pastoral poetry of Francisco de Quevedo -- 'Otros montes, otro ríos': the apprehension of alterity in a Spanish American pastoral -- Afterword.

In her analysis of the verse of representative poets of the Hispanic Baroque, Holloway demonstrates how these writers occupy an Arcadia which is de-familiarised and yet remains connected to the classical origins of the mode. Her study includes recent manuscript discoveries from the Spanish Baroque (Fabula de Alfeo y Aretusa, now attributed to the Gongorist poet Pedro Soto de Rojas), the poetry of Luisa de Carvajal y Mendoza and Francisco de Quevedo. The study considers pastoral as a global cultural phenomenon of the Early Modern period, its reverberations reaching as far as Viceregal Peru. The tradition of the pastoral as a site for the discussion of 'great matters in the forest' has deep roots, and re-emerges to praise the urban hearts of empire. Furthermore, it proves to be a site of spiritual encounter - a poetic space that frames the staging of indigenous conversion in the poetry of Diego Mexia and Fernando de Valverde. Within the intricacies of this literary construct, surface artistry sustains an effect of artless innocence that is vibrantly contested across the secular, sacred, parodic and colonial text.

La beauté des jours : roman
Gallay, Claudie, 1961- author
Arles : Actes sud, 2017
Jeanne has everything to know a quiet happiness: she has a caring husband Rémy, they had girl twins, a faithful friend, a stable job. Passionate about Marina Abramović, the artist-performer famous for having in her work put into play her existence, Jeanne no less likes surprises, the unexpected. This summer, chance slips - and herself invites it - into her everyday life ... Through the luminous face of Jeanne and the constellation of characters who accompany her and push her towards a serene achievement, Claudie Gallay composes a warm and tender novel about the liberating force of art, its soothing and revealing power. And on the beauty of the unpredictable.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Babelio

El día en que los muertos salieron a nadar
Álvarez, Fernando, author
México, D.F. : Editorial Terracota, 2016
"Cuatro estudiantes capitalinos van a Ciudad del Carmen a hacer sus prácticas universitarias en la Laguna de Términos. Conocen a otros muchachos (el flaco seco de Tomás Menchaca y el chino Jimmy Low) de los que se hacen amigos, y poco a poco se adentran en la sociedad y traban amistad con toda clase de habitantes: desde el Capitán Buenos Días y su familia hasta doña Tita, pasando por el rico dueño de la licorería y el afeminado propietario de los abarrotes. El primer día que salen ven, por primera vez en sus vidas, un hombre muerto en la carretera; después verán más en un extraño cementerio. Esta novela narra sus aventuras con unos y con otros, el descubrimiento de que se puede estar enamorado de una madre y de su hija al mismo tiempo, cómo matar el hambre en Los Almendros, una taquería carrito cuyos dueños se besan todo el tiempo, la experiencia de un espectáculo circense, una aventura con un ola de viento, las comilonas y las borracheras, el amor y la amistad, la vida diaria, pues, para el autor esta novela representa una evocación nostálgica que puede ser visitada y compartida."--Page 4 of cover.

Le bien : édification, exemple et scandale dans le roman du XIXe siècle
Mathilde Bertrand et Paolo Tortonese (éds)
Paris : Presses Sorbonne Nouvelle, [2017]
"Le bonheur n'a pas d'histoire et les bons sentiments ont mauvaise presse dans le roman réaliste. Balzac s'interrogeait en 1842 sur "le difficile problème littéraire qui consiste à rendre intéressant un personnage vertueux". Héros sans tache et femmes honnêtes, victimes innocentes et riches bienfaiteurs risquent fort d'ennuyer le lecteur et contreviennent aux exigences du roman de moeurs, qui vise à démasquer le mal caché sous les apparences du bien. Pourtant, un récit sans pôle positif est difficile à mener. La mise en scène du bien, l'édification et l'exemplarité ne sont pas l'apanage des romanciers idéalistes et autres opposants du réalisme ; les réalistes eux-mêmes ont recours au spectacle du bien, ne serait-ce que comme repoussoir du mal. Dans un monde romanesque où le mal est devenu la norme, il peut même arriver au bien de faire scandale."--Page 4 of cover.

The Irish sea
Maleno, Carlos, 1977- author
Victoria, TX : Dalkey Archive Press, 2017
"At a New Year's Eve party, a dead woman turns up alive again, after passing through a mysterious post-mortem way station located on another planet, and much to the disbelief of her old flame, who interprets the night's events with the help of his reading of Kafka. A priest is sent by the Vatican to investigate a strange development in the American cattle market: a breed of cows identical in all physical respects to human women. A man leaves his wife and flees to the north of Spain, where he meets a sickly woman in an empty café, introduces himself as Jorge Walser, and makes plans with her to disappear. Aboard a trans-atlantic cruise, a door-to-door vacuum salesman bumps into a woman who appears to be Natassja Kinski, and they swap tall tales as the ship floats them asymptotically toward world's end. Christ turns out to be a girl who fronts a punk band. The words of such writers as Beckett, Walser, Chekhov, Gombrowicz, Bolaño, Kafka, Blanchot, and Borges are characters in themselves. The Irish Sea is a novel masquerading as a book of short stories. A meditation on the paradox of nostalgia, which always seems to pine for what never was. A fevered search for order through writing, of truth through literature, of the nodal point where life and literature intersect. A strange personal gallery curated by a razor-sharp reader and his other, unknown self"--

Les bourgeois : roman
Ferney, Alice, author
Arles : Actes sud, [2017]
They are called Bourgeois and their patronymic is also a way of life. They are eight brothers and two sisters, born in Paris between 1920 and 1940. They grow in the trail of the Great War and the first fruits of the second. At the favorite places of bourgeois society - the army, the navy, the medicine, the bar, the business - they are part of the historical events and the social evolutions. From decolonization to post-May 1968, their existences embraced a whole era. The march of the world never discourages their deployment. From Jules the elder to Marie the last, the appearance and disappearance of the characters, their aspirations and their commitments punctuate the formidable horology of this novel very different from a simple family saga. For this is the century that is reconstructed in short discontinuous sequences, like a vast mosaic where the portraits of the ten members of the siblings are gradually detached - and a little their ancestors, and already their children. On this vertiginous round of time, Alice Ferney poses a look of novelist and historian. At the height of contemporary it redo the crossing. Going unceasingly from the singular to the collective, from individual fate to the national epic, she gives us to see the History being made, the errors, the guilty silences, the erroneous choices explained by the confusion of the present. Ample and captivating, Les Bourgeois proves to be a formidable analysis of our roots: a book that spends a whole French century in the sieve of the family novel.--Summary by Actes Sud

How many burdens have been carried over many years without knowing it, sometimes even by ending by loving its executioners and the causes of its misfortunes! It was necessary to reflect on it, for time might fail me, and I should choose, without deceiving myself, what I could correct, select what I had the most desire to throw overboard. " In the nineteenth book, My Life Without Me, novel, Nathalie Rheims surrenders more than ever, and continues the approach taken in Laisser les cendres s'envoler (2014) and Place Colette (2016), her last two novels published by Éditions Léo Scheer.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Babelio.

Kong : roman
Le Bris, Michel, author
Paris : Bernard Grasset, [2017]
"Michel Le Bris est l'auteur d'une oeuvre romanesque importante. On lui doit, entre autres, L'Homme aux semelles de vent et La Beauté du monde (Grasset, 2008, finaliste du prix Goncourt). Deux jeunes gens sortent sonnés de la Grande Guerre. L'un, Ernest Schoedsack, a filmé l'horreur dans la boue des tranchées ; l'autre, Merian Cooper, héros de l'aviation américaine, sérieusement brûlé, vient d'être libéré d'un camp de prisonniers. Ils se rencontrent dans Vienne occupée, puis se retrouvent à Londres où naît le projet qui va les lier pour la vie. Comment dire la guerre? Comment dire ce puits noir où l'homme s'est perdu? et peut-être, aussi, révélé ? Pas de fiction, se jurent-ils : le réalisme le plus exigeant. S'ensuivent des aventures échevelées : guerre russo-polonaise, massacres de Smyrne, Abyssinie, épopée de la souffrance en Iran, tigres mangeurs d'hommes dans la jungle du Siam, guerriers insurgés au Soudan... Leurs films sont à couper le souffle. On les acclame : 'Les T. E. Lawrence de l'aventure!' lance le New Yorker. Eux font la moue. Manque ce qu'ils voulaient restituer du mystère du monde. Déçu, Cooper renoncera quelque temps pour créer avec des amis aviateurs rien moins que... la Pan Am! avant d'y revenir. Ce sera pour oser la fiction la plus radicale, le film le plus fou, pour lequel il faudra inventer des techniques nouvelles d'animation. Un coup de génie. Une histoire de passion amoureuse, mettant en scène un être de neuf mètres de haut, Kong, qui épouvante, mais que l'on pleure quand il meurt... Le film est projeté à New York devant une foule immense, trois semaines avant qu'Hitler ne prenne les pleins pouvoirs. Sur un air de jazz mélancolique ou joyeux, entre années de guerre et années folles, Michel Le Bris nous offre une fresque inoubliable. On y croise des êtres épris d'idéal, des aventurières, des héros, des politiques, des producteurs, des actrices, et bien sûr un immense singe que l'on aime craindre et aimer, moins sauvage que l'homme..."--Back cover.

Étude sur la composition des Deux étendards
Rebatet, Lucien, author
Versailles : Via Romana, [2017]
"François Mitterrand divisait le monde entre "ceux qui avaient lu Les Deux Étendards et ceux qui ne l'avaient pas lu". Le roman de Lucien Rebatet (1903-1972) est pourtant un ouvrage tabou depuis sa parution en 1952 chez Gallimard. Et malgré ses 20 000 exemplaires écoulés, il demeure selon Georges Steiner "l'un des chefs d'oeuvre secrets de la littérature moderne". Les Deux Étendards n'aborde pourtant pas la politique mais l'amour, la religion et l'art. Son intrigue a pour protagonistes trois jeunes gens : Michel, le double de l'auteur qui dans les années vingt rejette son éducation cléricale et monte à Paris pour se consacrer à l'art et à la séduction ; Régis, son ami d'enfance qui habite Lyon où il étudie pour intégrer la Compagnie de Jésus, et Anne-Marie, lycéenne pure et mystique qui vit une relation, telle Héloïse, avec ledit Régis... Ce qu'il en advient constitue le noeud et le génie d'un roman qui éclaire subtilement le sort de notre condition humaine. Étude sur la composition des Deux Étendards, rédigé à Clairvaux derrière les barreaux, entre 1950 et 1951, est un document inédit, unique et fascinant qui lève le voile sur le processus intime de la création romanesque à travers l'histoire d'une oeuvre et de sa gestation. C'est le roman d'un roman, qui se lit comme un roman."--Page 4 of cover.

Upstairs, Oscar, a young corporal amputated with a leg and locked in a stubborn silence, loving him strangely: with him, Antoine discovers the true reason for his presence here. For Oscar, "everything has to be started again" and, in the first place, to find the word again, to recount what left him speechless. Even the arrival of Lila, who had come to join him, could not turn him away from Oscar, whose narrative he must hear, a wild tale of men who had become wolves. --Page 4 of cover translated by Babelio.

A Family Lexicon re-creates with extraordinary objectivity the small world of a family enduring some of the most difficult years of the twentieth century, the period from the rise of Mussolini through World War II (Ginzburg's first husband, who was a member of the resistance, was killed by the Nazis) and its immediate aftermath. Every family has its store of phrases and sayings by which it maintains its sense of what it means to be a family. Such sayings and stories lie at the heart of a great novel about family and history"--

Rauschenberg/Dante : drawing a modern Inferno
Krčma, Ed, author
New Haven, CT : Yale University Press, 2017
Dante's Inferno inspired Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) to create a series of 34 drawings that comprise one of the most remarkable creative enterprises of 20th-century American art. Completed between 1958 and 1960, XXXIV Drawings for Dante's Inferno introduced an innovative transfer process to the artist's tradition of combining found objects and photographic imagery from newspapers and other popular sources. The resulting powerful, abstract narrative runs parallel to Dante's allegorical journey through the underworld. This publication is the culmination of years of research to identify the images used in Rauschenberg's pieces, and Ed Krcma elucidates the work's deliberate commentary on the fraught political climate of the Cold War and its overall significance for the career of one of the postwar era's most influential figures. Exemplifying Rauschenberg's aptitude for collapsing distinctions between various disciplines, his interpretation of Dante's Inferno is explored in depth for the first time in this groundbreaking book.

La muette : roman
Lacroix, Alexandre, author
Paris : Don Quichotte éditions, [2017]
A few kilometers from Paris, there is a little-known place, even if major events took place there: the city of La Muette. Originally, it was to be a jewel of French architecture. Designed by two great architects, it represented a response to the German Bauhaus, and a popular housing revolution. But the site was interrupted before the war and, from 1941 to 1944, the Muette became the camp of Drancy, administered by the gendarmes and the Nazis. From these buildings, sixty-seven thousand Jews were deported. The fate of this city, which concentrates what one does not want to see in both French history and society, does not stop there: after the Liberation, it was set up to create social housing . The old chambers of the prisoners, compartmentalized to make studios and one-room apartments, are still inhabited today. In this choral novel, the author invites us to follow the journey of two endearing characters, Elsa, held in 1943, and Nour, a young Beur of today. They do not have the same language, not the same relationship to desire or death, but their stories intermingle and respond. So much so that, at the intersection of their monologues, one imagines that one can hear the voices of La Muette.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Don Quichotte éditions.

Michelangelo's poetry and iconography in the heart of the Reformation
Moroncini, Ambra, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2017
'Men must be changed by religion, not religion by men': religious culture and spirituality in early modern Italy -- Vittoria Colonna: matriarch of Italian Petrarchism and Christi ancilla of the Italian Renaissance -- Michelangelo's poetry: a religious journey from Neo-Platonism to the credo in sola fide -- Michelangelo's poems and drawings for Vittoria Colonna: a sentiment of beauty and equally infinite grace -- Poetry and theology in Michelangelo's last frescoes.

"Contextualizing Michelangelo's poetry and spirituality within the framework of the religious Zeitgeist of his era, this study investigates his poetic production to shed new light on the artist's religious beliefs and unique language of art. Author Ambra Moroncini looks first and foremost at Michelangelo the poet and proposes a thought-provoking reading of Michelangelo's most controversial artistic production between 1536 and c.1550: the Last Judgment, his devotional drawings made for Vittoria Colonna, and his last frescoes for the Pauline Chapel. Using theological and literary analyses which draw upon reformist and Protestant scriptural writings, as well as on Michelangelo's own rime spirituali and Vittoria Colonna's spiritual lyrics, Moroncini proposes a compelling argument for the impact that the Reformation had on one of the greatest minds of the Italian Renaissance. It brings to light how, in the second quarter of the sixteenth century in Italy, Michelangelo's poetry and aesthetic conception were strongly inspired by the revived theologia crucis of evangelical spirituality, rather than by the theologia gloriae of Catholic teaching"--

Un certain M. Piekielny : roman
Désérable, François-Henri, author
[Paris] : Éditions Gallimard, [2017]
As soon as Romain Gary received a sort of request: "When you meet great people, important men, promise me to tell them: at number 16 of the Rue Grande-Pohulanka, at Wilno, lived M. Piekielny." He respected this promise made to this neighbor (who looked like a "sad mouse" and who guessed in him a child with a great future) when he became a resistant, diplomatic and of course a writer. And the author states in The Promise of Dawn: "From the UN platforms to the London Embassy, ​​from the Federal Palace of Berne to the Elysee Palace, before Charles de Gaulle and Vichinsky, in front of the high dignitaries and the builders for a thousand years, I never failed to mention the existence of the little man."--Translation of page 4 of cover by lelitteraire.com

Propiedades vigiladas = Monitored properties
Castellano, Florencia, 1975- author
New York, New York : Bomb magazine ; 2016
"Claiming the mundane as its starting point -- "a father takes his car out of the garage / and sings" -- Monitored Properties interrogates the ideological forces that exist in the smallest moments of our lives. With playful irony, wit, and lyrical dynamism, Florencia Castellano takes on the figure of the "cowboy," the gaucho that has permeated Argentine history and helped define patriarchy for centuries. In its re-imagining, the book questions the ritual of cultural inheritance, suggests that automatic responses can be broken down in language. Here, the literal and the absurd touch, the self and the other dance, "despite not knowing each other." If no haven is safe from the language of patriarchy, then its reverse could be true: no language, however emblazoned, is beyond the reach of the poet. Monitored Properties is a testament to living, relational histories and the way they expose and resist official, state-sanctioned versions."--Publisher's website (viewed 09/27/2016).

Honoré de Balzac, l'hommoeuvre
Nicole Mozet
Joué-lès-Tours (France) : Éditions La Simarre & Christian Pirot, [2017]
"Ce livre propose une lecture de l'ensemble de l'oeuvre de Balzac qui, en donnant toute la place qui est la sienne à La Comédie humaine, n'oublie ni les Contes drolatiques, ni le théâtre, ni ce beau journal de voyage qu'est la Lettre sur Kiev, ni ce corpus sans équivalent, romanesque à sa manière, des Lettres à Mme Hanska. On a peut-être trop noirci une oeuvre dont l'allégresse de ton, la virtuosité linguistique et le potentiel d'humour restent uniques. Centré sur les dernières années de la vie d'un romancier qui devait mourir encore jeune, cet ouvrage s'interroge sur l'écriture personnelle d'un homme qui n'a jamais écrit son autobiographie."--Page 4 of cover.

My mother is a river
Di Pietrantonio, Donatella, author
Folkestone : Calisi Press, 2015
"This is the story of the love between a mother and her daughter, a love "gone wrong from the start". When Esperia exhibits the symptoms of a disease that robs her of her memory and the very sense of her existence, it is time for the daughter to take care of her and help her to rebuild her disintegrating identity. So the daily recounting of the past begins. Day after day we learn about the characters of the extended family, the inhabitants of the small village still without running water or electricity, in a bright and harsh Abruzzo, which emerges from the pages like a mythological distant land. They are bittersweet memories, full of life and truth, that rebuild the story of a relationship and of an Italy that appears so very distant and yet it is still present in our characters history. And, in the telling, the mother and daughter relationship slowly changes, fluctuating between love and hate, nostalgia and denial. A surprising new novel, revealing a strong voice weaving a compelling magic spell."

Baudelaire
Natta, Marie-Christine, author
[Paris, France] : Éditions Perrin, [2017]
As a child, Charles Baudelaire wanted to be an actor. This fantasy is very serious: it reveals all the importance that Baudelaire attaches to artifice, the founding element of his dandyism. Far from being frivolous or juvenile, Dandyism represents for him a philosophy which he claims and manifests as much by his life as by his work. Among other themes, this innovative biography of the author of Les fleurs du mal brings many questions of the Romantic poet's gesture.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Éditions Perrin.

George Sand et l'idéal : une recherche en écriture
textes réunis et présentés par Damien Zanone
Paris : Honoré Champion éditeur, 2017
"I need an ideal": this confidence that George Sand sets forth as a profession of faith in the Story of my life can serve as a guideline for the whole of his work. To follow this thread is to respond to the invitation of an author whose writing is crossed by the relation to the ideal, a word always reiterated. The entire work of George Sand is a research that the torment of the ideal haunts in its smallest nooks and crannies. In drawing up the record is the best way to approach the deep unity of the writing adventure of which George Sand is the name. Poetics, aesthetics, morals, politics, and religion: the different domains that give form and meaning to Sand's writing are linked together by the same fundamental issue, since they are so many opportunities to formulate the demand for the ideal. The notion is obsessive, disturbing, saving. What can be the ideal? How to reach it and how to recognize it if it is there? Any page written by Sand can be read as a stage of research in the glare of this great mirage--Translated by Honore Champion.

Les mondes de Labiche
Olivier Bara, Violaine Heyraud, Jean-Claude Yon (éds)
Paris : Presses Sorbonne nouvelle, [2017]
"Deux cents ans après sa naissance en 1815, Labiche reste une figure illustre du vaudeville et de la comédie. L'auteur d'Un chapeau de paille d'Italie, de L'Affaire de la rue de Lourcine ou de La Cagnotte, n'occupe pas seulement une place centrale dans la tradition du théâtre de divertissement. Il était également connu en son temps comme critique, homme politique et académicien. Son oeuvre riche, au fort rayonnement géographique et culturel, révèle la société du XIXe siècle, tout en transcendant son époque. Comment Labiche, héritier de Scribe et aîné de Feydeau, rénove-t-il les formes dramatiques ? Quel discours tient-il sur les moeurs, sur le monde économique, social et politique ? Où emmène-t-il ses personnages en voyage ? Pourquoi fait-il rire en représentant Paris et la province ? Dans quels domaines se perpétue l'héritage de Labiche ? Voilà quelques-unes des questions que pose cet ouvrage pluridisciplinaire, au fil de ce "voyage autour des mondes de Labiche"."--Page 4 of cover.
