Le théâtre de Dumas père, entre héritage et renouvellement
sous la direction de Anne-Marie Callet-Bianco et Sylvain Ledda
Rennes : Presses universitaires de Rennes, 2018
Despite an abundant production, spread over nearly fifty years, the theater of Dumas undergoes today an undeniable eclipse. However, its author wrote continuously for the scene until his death, practicing all genres and leaving an official corpus of sixty-six pieces. His work is part of a heritage, from antiquity to contemporary production, and makes it a complex use, between borrowing, variations and diversions. The Dumas Theater is changing genres, modernizing issues and renewing the spectacular, marking a key benchmark for future generations.--Presses universitaires de Rennes.

Galien de Pergame ou La rhétorique de la providence : médecine, littérature et pouvoir à Rome
Petit, Caroline, 1976- author
Leiden ; Brill, [2018]
Le livre de Caroline Petit, Galien de Pergame ou la rhétorique de la Providence: Médecine, littérature et pouvoir à Rome constitue la première étude d'ensemble du rôle de la rhétorique dans l?œuvre de Galien. Médecin de plusieurs empereurs romains et auteur du corpus le plus impressionnant de l'antiquité avant 350 de notre ère, Galien a façonné une figure d'autorité fascinante à plus d'un titre. Le livre analyse l'éventail de la maestria rhétorique de Galien à travers cinq chapitres, étudiant tour à tour Galien et la tradition hellénique, les stratégies démonstratives de Galien, le rôle de l'enargeia dans ses descriptions et récits, l'hymne à la Nature contenu dans son principal traité anatomique, le De usu partium, et enfin l'autobiographie et l'autoportrait qui se dessinent dans son œuvre. Caroline Petit's book, Galien de Pergame ou la rhétorique de la Providence: Médecine, littérature et pouvoir à Rome is the first comprehensive study of the role of rhetoric in Galen's œuvre. Physician to several Roman emperors and author of the most impressive body of works in antiquity up to AD 350, Galen created a compelling figure of authority through his medical and philosophical works. The book analyses the range of Galen's rhetorical mastery through five chapters, studying in turn Galen and the Hellenic tradition, Galen's demonstrative and refutative tactics, the role of enargeia in Galen's descriptions and narratives, his "hymn" to Nature in his main anatomical work, De usu partium, and finally autobiography and self-portrait in his œuvre.

Louis-René des Forêts : empreintes
Delaplanche, Emmanuel, author
[Toulouse, France?] : Éditions Publie.net, [2018]
Louis-René des Forêts plays for sure one of the most important figures of the twentieth e French literary century. The aura aroused by the writer, even in the margin of the media light where he has always held himself, his companionship with authors as decisive as André du Bouchet, Yves Bonnefoy, Marguerite Duras, Pascal Quignard, Georges Battle or Maurice Blanchot attest. His work, recently assembled in a complete edition, is at the crossroads of the editorial history of his time: a reader at Gallimard, he has access to a vast original production as well as translations, readings that come directly to feed his own work. His know-how is unique: he shapes his books in this attentive listening to those of others. Emmanuel Delaplanche's essay, in its remarkable analysis, gives some of the keys to the composition of the great works that are among others The Mendicants, The Chatter or The Children's Room. Indeed, we discover how themes, atmospheres, names, but especially words, phrases, sometimes phrase members, are rearranged to produce original works. Far from working as a copyist, far from being a plagiarist's hiding place, Forests is developing a very singular art of arrangement, variation, and recovery. In the age of digital reproduction and sampling, Emmanuel Delaplanche's book comes to feed the reflection on the birth of the text and offers a singular light on the writer's laboratory and the originality of the work of art. It is accompanied by a website that has some of the pages of the work of the Forestry watered by several major texts of the XIX th and XX th century (especially American). Website accessible only to book buyers.--Publie.net

Le "pacte" de Philippe Lejeune, ou l'autobiographie en théorie : édition critique et commentaire
Allamand, Carole, author
Paris : Honoré Champion éditeur, 2018
For forty years, there has been little talk of autobiography without mentioning the "autobiographical pact". But do we know how this idea has evolved between its first formulation in Autobiography in France (1971) and Signs of Life(2005)? This book is devoted to the fortunes of Philippe Lejeune's most quoted study, "The Autobiographical Pact" (1973), reproduced in its entirety and followed by an analysis of the debates it sparked between its author and writers ( S. Doubrovsky, A. Robbe-Grillet) or other theorists (P. de Man, G. Genette, G. Gusdorf, etc.). The astonishing role of the "Autobiographical Pact" in the genesis of autofiction has been extensively discussed. This is not, however, the only impact of a study that has also paved the way for a pragmatic conception of the literary genre and represents, in the full reign of the Text, an effort to think about the referentiality of literature.--Honoré Champion.

Khalil : roman
Khadra, Yasmina, author
Paris : Julliard, [2018]
Friday, November 13, 2015. The air is still mild for a winter evening. While the Blues electrify the Stade de France, the terraces of Parisian brasseries clink to reunions and happy encounters. An explosive belt around his waist, Khalil is waiting to act. He is part of the commando that is about to bloody the capital. Who is Khalil? How did it come about? In this new novel, Yasmina Khadra gives us an unprecedented approach to terrorism, breathtaking realism and accuracy, a vertiginous dive in the mind of a kamikaze he follows at the trace, even in its last entrenchments, to awaken us in our time suspended between the fragile lucidity of the conscience and the unbearable brutality of madness.

Les cigognes sont immortelles : roman
Mabanckou, Alain, 1966- author
Paris : Seuil, [2018]
"À Pointe-Noire, dans le quartier Voungou, la vie suit son cours. Autour de la parcelle familiale où il habite avec Maman Pauline et Papa Roger, le jeune collégien Michel a une réputation de rêveur. Mais les tracas du quotidien (argent égaré, retards et distractions, humeur variable des parents, mesquineries des voisins) vont bientôt être emportés par le vent de l'Histoire. En ce mois de mars 1977 qui devrait marquer l'arrivée de la petite saison des pluies, le camarade président Marien Ngouabi est brutalement assassiné à Brazzaville. Et cela ne sera pas sans conséquences pour le jeune Michel, qui fera alors, entre autres, l'apprentissage du mensonge.Partant d'un univers familial, Alain Mabanckou élargit vite le cercle et nous fait entrer dans la grande fresque du colonialisme, de la décolonisation et des impasses du continent africain, dont le Congo est ici la métaphore puissante et douloureuse. Mêlant l'intimisme et la tragédie politique, il explore les nuances de l'âme humaine à travers le regard naïf d'un adolescent qui, d'un coup, apprend la vie et son prix."

Philippe Jaccottet : poésie et altérité
sous la direction de Michèle Finck et Patrick Werly
Strasbourg : Presses universitaires de Strasbourg, [2018]
The publication of Philippe Jaccottet's work in Pleiades allows us to measure the dimension of otherness in a poetry whose distinctive features are to be fundamentally dialogical. If there is no poetic experience without a tension between a principle of solitude and a principle of otherness, the work of Jaccottet is one of those who assume this tension while orienting as much as possible the speech towards the requirement of the otherness of which Mandelstam gave the formula: "No lyricism without dialogue". For Jaccottet, as for many poets of his generation, poetry is out of self, by openness to others - or not. To write poetically is to answer the other and the other; it is the responsibility of the poet, who also engages the responsibility of the reader.--Presses universitaires de Strasbourg.

Proust et Versailles
sous la direction de Luc Fraisse
Paris : Hermann, [2018]
Marcel Proust's links with Versailles are numerous: many of his friends, in the world of arts and letters, resided there; he has often visited it; he knew Pierre de Nolhac, chief curator of the estate; he read a lot of literary works or historical works about Versailles. The survey conducted here, in association with the Versailles area, brings together curators and academics to revive this world of friendships and culture. A whole society of the Belle Epoque must be restored to reconstruct these links, through rare documents and archive material, and to understand what role plays the symbolism of Versailles, sometimes visible, sometimes underlying, in the Developing the Recherche du temps perdu.--Hermann.

Les masques de Saint-John Perse
Dournel, Sylvain, 1973- author
Aix-en-Provence : Presses Universitaires de Provence, 2018
"And those who have seen him pass will say: who was this man and what, his home?" Significantly asked at the end of the ambitious journey proposed by the Complete Works, the question consecrates the policy of the mystery led by an author who has tirelessly multiplying the screens between his social being, the diplomat Alexis Leger, and his literary double, the hieratic Saint-John Perse, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1960. Much more than just a pen name, this auctorial signature inaugurates a complex figurative system, a gallery of characters that we are dealing with here, closer to a text often presumed hermetic, to highlight. From the Child to the Lover, from the Exile to the Prince, from the Prayer to the Conqueror, the poet's masks speak of a singular, sensitive, transgressive and rare presence in the world. Act of birth of a myth, that of "the man with the golden mask", they offer him a condition of existence; a voice, a body, gestures, an ethics. The mask here no longer disguises the forger, no longer betrays the mystifier, so many misunderstandings that the reception of the work has not always been exempted; In the full field of his evidence in the poem, he signals, reveals and creates a unity, to become - self-portrait as well as autogenesis - a particularly advanced observation post of the Saint-John Perse factory.--Decitre.

Molière
Forestier, Georges, author
[Paris, France] : Gallimard, [2018]
Il existe un mythe de Molière édifié sur un monceau de légendes : mari jaloux et malheureux ; d'humeur rêveuse et mélancolique ; versificateur maladroit ; acteur doué pour le seul jeu comique ; malade consumé par ses mauvais poumons... Des générations de biographes ont colporté ces fables qui composent encore aujourd'hui son portrait. Comment retrouver le Molière que ses contemporains ont connu? Il ne subsiste de lui ni manuscrits ni lettres ni écrits intimes. Pour connaître au plus près la figure de l'homme, l'itinéraire de l'acteur, l'audace du directeur de théâtre, l'ingéniosité créatrice de l'auteur, il faut revenir aux témoignages méconnus, aux documents oubliés - tout ce qui restitue les travaux et les jours de l'homme, la vie d'une famille hors norme, les tribulations d'une troupe d'exception, la séduction de l'artiste-courtisan devenu le favori de Louis XIV, et qui éclairent les fulgurances du plus grand auteur comique occidental. Georges Forestier tente de se glisser dans l'intimité du créateur. Il en reconstitue la formation intellectuelle, révèle les secrets de fabrication de ses œuvres et fait découvrir la logique qui préside à l'enchaînement des pièces en perpétuel renouvellement. Au fil des spectacles, et d'un triomphe à l'autre, c'est le genre même de la comédie que Molière ne cesse de révolutionner. Voilà pourquoi cet alchimiste reste indéfiniment le contemporain de ses spectateurs et de ses lecteurs.--Gallimard.

Emmanuel Carrère : faire effraction dans le réel
sous la direction de Laurent Demanze et Dominique Rabaté
Paris : P.O.L, [2018]
faire effraction dans le réel : that's the wish that drives Emmanuel Carrère's writing. Do not be content with reality but expect - with dread - a power of revelation. This capacity for vengeance of the real forces the writer to confront the limits of his power, all that the real remains fatally suffering. Carrère derails the everyday world because heroes are looking for places and situations where they could finally be "out of reach". A meeting changed everything in the 1990s: that of Jean-Claude Romand and his terrible story. Suddenly fiction is not enough anymore. "I gave up on leaving, I wrote the book in the first person. I think without exaggeration that this choice saved my life "admits Emmanuel Carrère. The writer becomes as much the witness of the real as his narrator in spite of himself.--Gallimard

Le milieu de terrain : roman
Besson, Patrick, 1956- author
Paris : Bernard Grasset, [2018]
An extraordinary event, in the middle town of Y, located between Bordeaux and Arcachon: the football club - the YFC - is, for the first time for several years, back in L2 (second division). The president has hired a new coach to maintain and even target the L1 (first division). This coach is Elvis, sixty-one years old, biker, former player of the French team, widower, literate. What we read is his diary. In the first match played by the YFC in L2, Elvis falls in love with the wife of a player, Ines, thirty years younger than him. This tense situation will be at the origin of various dramas, reversals and misunderstandings succeeding one another at a high football rhythm until the final suspense: Is Ines Elvis's own daughter and YFC will succeed, under the Aegis of his coach, to join the elite of the championship? This very contemporary novel is an acid and smiling X-ray - the Besson way, found in The brothers of consolation, The presidential and Cape Kalafatis , his previous works published by Grasset - the colorful world of sport and the crazy French province, along with a treatise on love in a couple that thirty years separate.--Grasset.

L'entretien littéraire : anatomie d'un genre
Yanoshevsky, Galia, author
Paris : Classiques Garnier, 2018
The author interview is a literary genre. This literalism appears even in the devices and stages of its media coverage: from the conversation to its staging by writing, filming and compilation methods. When the literary interview itself is the subject of a fictionalization, for example within a novel, it offers a critical perspective on this practice halfway between media and literature.

La passion de l'impossible : une histoire du récit au XXe siècle
Rabaté, Dominique, author
Paris : Éditions Corti, [2018]
The aim of this book is to understand why and how a certain history of literary modernity was played out in France in a paradoxical but fruitful relationship with the idea of ​​an impossible literature. Initiated by Mallarmé and Rimbaud on the side of poetry, it is in narrative prose that this research is pursued under the double patronage of Monsieur Teste de Valéry and Paludes de Gide. In this wake, it is a story of the "narrative" that emerges as many leading writers turn away from the novel, which they aggravate the crisis, but without giving up a form of relationship that prohibits a narrative classic or happy. It is this relation to the impossible, which makes itself a relation of the impossible, that this essay envisages for the whole of the twentieth century. It is therefore necessary to identify a paradigm of what will be called "narrative" (a revealing anagram of the word "writing"), to follow its rich and different forms - through surrealism, according to the inflection imposed on it by Battle and Blanchot, or in the vertigo of Beckett's voice - to a sort of exhaustion of this quest that marked the twentieth century, when the cliché and the pathos of the impossible are clichés of a modernity absorbed by his reflexive mirror. In a certain way, we go out of this period, of which we must then measure the way, the dead ends, as well as the extraordinary ambitions, in order to understand the legacy inherited from our time. After having posited the hypothesis of the narrative, I trace, in the first part, the course in a story which proposes the essential scansions and elements of negative definition. The second part focuses on a series of case studies (Bataille, Thomas, Blanchot and Beckett) who are interested in the paradoxical space of the enunciation of these texts.

Le langage des sources dans Les trois villes d'Émile Zola : la dialectique de la foi et de la raison
Lapière, Marie, 1980- author
Paris : Honoré Champion éditeur, 2018
The trilogy of the Three Citiesis a separate cycle in Zola's work, especially because it is part of the battle between faith and reason. This work aims to study how it participates by analyzing its main sources in order to uncover the passage of a Zola reader to a Zola creator, reading as enriching the novelistic writing. Thus, the dialectic between faith and reason is led by Zola with his sources, which they serve as foils or models. Through the reflection and reflexivity of reading and writing, in a constant play of divergences and convergences, the process of creation is enlightened by the constant dynamics of the sources to the files then the files to the novels. In fact, each source is evaluated by the yardstick of the romantic experimentation. From Lourdes to Rome, then from Rome to Paris, the novels sign the bankruptcy of Catholicism. The trilogy thus appears as the answer to a society in search of landmarks and that the Church would want to heal by a bleeding of reason. Catholicism dead, we must propose something else to found a new society. Such is the ambition of the novelist. That's why revealing Zola's report to his sources means analyzingThe Three Cities as novels-experience, in addition to returning to the very foundation of writing as the matrix of the Zolian paradigm.

Pascal Quignard ou Les leçons de ténèbres de la littérature
Calle-Gruber, Mireille, 1945- author
Paris : Éditions Galilée, [2018]
"The high purity and transparency of the air, which is one of the causes of the intensity of the blue color of the sky, produce a singular phenomenon at the top of Mont Blanc: it is possible to see the stars in daylight; but for this you must be entirely in the shade and see even, above his head, a considerable thickness of shadow. The proper place to make this observation in the morning was the ascent to the shoulder of Mont Blanc "(Horace-Bénédict de Saussure). What, for each literary work, is a shoulder to the considerable darkness that will bear dazzling stars? Unmatched emotions? For Pascal Quignard, a nyctalope writer who seeks the secrets of the dark, literature is this dark technique that brings the dream and light the world of the beauty of his images against the light against the night. This book, which is a writing addressed to a writing, strives to make and transmit the intimate experience of the text. To echo this place where to welcome the features of what seeks obscurely to give birth to the mysteries of origins and ends. To what is calling. Which, decidedly, is called: literature.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Éditions Galilée.

Approches linguistique et stylistique de l'oeuvre de Bernard-Marie Koltès
Petitjean, André, author
Dijon : Éditions universitaires de Dijon, 2018
An important playwright in the repertoire of French theater, Bernard-Marie Koltès is also one of the most widely performed writers abroad. His notoriety is also measured by the number of works (theses, books, articles) devoted to him. The interest of the present work is to give an account, from a linguistic point of view, of the peculiarities of the dramatic enunciation in order to better grasp the originality of Koltès' style both in terms of dialogues and didascalia. This study attempts to define its idiolectal singularity as it is perceptible in terms of the contents of its works (poetics of places, reasons for violence and lies) as well as their enunciative modalities (from the role of the terms of address to the different modes of dialogism). If certain pieces are the subject of a particular treatment ( Quai ouest and La Nuit juste avant les forêts), studies are based on a corpus comprising the majority of dramatic works as well as critical interventions by the playwright. All in all, it appears that the current look of Koltes on humanity is accompanied by a permanent quest for renewal of dramatic forms.--Translation of page 4 of cover by CREM.

In Les sacrifices de l'amour (1771), the novelist Claude-Joseph Dorat defines the XVIIIth century as a time when men seek to seduce women "for the right to despise." Such a comment is surprising: today, we are used to hearing eulogistically about the libertines of the Enlightenment, which would have broken the moral and religious corset that repressed sexual desires. But must we really associate "libertinage" and "liberté"? This book would make a speech on this point, the writers of the XVIII thcentury. Their writings suggest that, in order to understand the issues of libertinism, it must be placed in the long time of a clash between the two sexes that has lasted since the dawn of humanity. The Enlightenment Eros corresponds to a strategy implemented by men to exert on women an undivided domination. Under the pretext of inviting women to take their part in amorous pleasures, seducers set a trap for the female sex: libertine sophistry strives to make every woman a happy slave, enslaved to the omnipotence of men, made available to thank you and forced to recognize for one and only master, the phallus--Translation of page 4 of cover.

Charles Nodier, le politique masqué
Kupiec, Anne, author
Paris : Klincksieck, 2018
Bibliophile exceptional, polygraph, precursor of the romanticism, the writer Charles Nodier (1780-1844) published at the same time novels, tales, stories, allegories and articles full of irony. He sometimes did not sign his books, take pseudonyms, and multiply his masks to such an extent that the question of his relationship to the various political regimes which, from the Revolution to the July Monarchy, became constituted the historical time in which he wrote. Anne Kupiec's hypothesis is straightforwardly political: Nodier has been shocked by the revolutionary moment, despite the fact that he lived it while still a child. The political thread that opens the reading of the work then faces irreducible difficulties, that of the changing forms of Nodier's literary expression, that of the writer's multiple masks and, finally, that of an ambiguity of political positions. Indeed, Nodier praised both Bonald and Saint-Simon, Madame de Stael and Babeuf or Buonarroti, he criticized the despotism of the Empire and was disappointed by the July Monarchy. The analysis must thus rise to the grasping of the profound meaning of ambiguity, after having gone through all the forms and all the variations. Thus, the nature of a political skepticism which doubts everything without giving up anything, which uses multiple forms of writing to awaken its reader to interrogation, if not to criticism, gradually becomes clearer. of the present and elements of positivity of this present. Political thought makes the detour of the fantastic, the animal dream, the paradoxical praise, the "reflective monomania", the fiction to ward off disenchantment and to provide perspectives of distance, recoil, exile compared to disappointments that the post-revolutionary period sparked. In a surprising way Nodier is the one who, in 1835, at the time of the edition of theDiscourse on voluntary servitude by Lamennais, proposes to publish the complete works of La Boétie. This proposal is all the more significant as Nodier was the publisher of the Republican Institutions of Saint-Just ... The political thinker is not unmasked, but his mask of writing discovers its real issues.--Translation of page 4 of cover by Klincksieck.

"Tenir ensemble Arthur, la mer et la guerre : tel est le défi qu'ont voulu relever les quinze études d'histoire et de littérature réunies dans ce volume. Un défi car Arthur, à toutes les époques où il a tenu la place que l'on sait dans la culture du monde occidental, n'a guère été associé aux idées de guerre sur mer, de combat naval ou de défense des côtes. Pourtant, des Âges obscurs à l'aube du Moyen Âge jusqu'aux plus récents développements de la littérature et de la bande dessinée, en passant par l'enluminure médiévale et le roman courtois, les auteurs ont su mettre en lumière une petite musique récurrente, un leitmotiv discret mais toujours présent : celui d'une matière arthurienne qui n'oublie pas que la guerre se mène aussi sur la mer."--Page 4 of cover.

Le livre des merveilles et le cuir du langage : lecture de L'Usage du monde de Nicolas Bouvier
Laporte, Nadine, author
Mont-Saint-Aignan : Presses universitaires de Rouen, [2017]
"Au cours de l'été 1953, deux jeunes gens quittent Genève à bord d'une petite Fiat Topolino pour rejoindre l'Inde. Même si le voyageur affirme dès l'abord, en une formule devenue célèbre, qu'"un voyage se passe de motifs", la curiosité et la volonté de "rencontrer le monde" ne sont certainement pas pour rien dans ce départ. Il s'agit aussi de "s'arracher" à des attachements trop confortables. Nicolas Bouvier et Thierry Vernet partent pour vivre un corps-à-corps avec l'inconnu et l'indicible, parce qu'il se savent et se veulent créateurs de leur vie et d'une oeuvre. Au retour, Nicolas Bouvier, l'écrivain, et Thierry Vernet, le peintre, transforment la route qu'ils ont suivie de Genève à Kaboul en un récit époustouflant, écrit à quatre mains : les mots de Bouvier, les dessins de Vernet. Plus qu'un récit de voyage, L'Usage du monde est une oeuvre qui touche à ce que la littérature a de plus puissant et de plus mystérieux."--Page 4 of cover.
