Lewis, French Review Hannah Thompson's thought-provoking monograph is an example of the richness of the new approaches to which the Zolian oeuvre lends itself. An entertaining and worthwhile read for anyone interested in Zola studies, Naturalism, or cultural history. Haklin, Nineteenth-Century French Studies As such it represents an important contribution to the urgent discussion of community and the fraught relationship between "singular-plural" beings and the collectivities they form.
That these works should be known is undeniable. If it is unnecessary, or perhaps futile, to speak of their literary value, they are clearly interesting for other reasons. In particular, should anyone still need assurance that religion and the Church were fair game for medieval satirists, this volume should lay those doubts to rest.
Littérature et Poésie
Lacy, The French Review Burgess, Modern Language Review As one would expect from such a prolific and experienced scholar as Tony Hunt, the Introduction covers in an efficient and scholarly manner all the essential questions relating to the text he prints. Griffin takes time to define and explain precisely the complex notions she uses.
She states clearly sometimes excessively so what she intends to do, balancing presentation of psychoanalytic concepts and examination of the Vulgate Cycle. Inside, the text is neatly organized into four cleverly titled chapters - see, for example, chapter 4: Her extraction of appropriate examples from the texts of the Vulgate Cycle and application of psychoanalytic theory to these episodes is surrounded by an ample survey of and response to the critical tradition in Arthurian studies. The difficulty of such an enterprise should not be underestimated. Griffin maintains throughout an impressive command of a large corpus New, impeccably researched and exciting perspectives on a highly complex corpus of texts.
The quest for wholeness that marks the Cycle is also, as Griffin cogently observes, paralleled by our own scholarly pursuit of a unified text and comprehensively coherent reading of this multilayered work - a reading that, perhaps despite its author's own intentions, this study quite effectively achieves. It also encourages a new broader look at a whole range of different kinds of discourse with an oral dimension. An indispensable collection for the serious humour scholar.
All of which makes this powerfully argued book a most welcome and valuable publication. What distinguishes Modernist Song, above all, is Forcer's sustained and precise analysis of selected poems, his own interrogations of signifying play, which draw on a range of theoretical tools and critical references. I have assigned individual chapters in an undergraduate seminar on contemporary French cinema with very positive results, and the entire book would serve as an excellent cornerstone for a graduate course. With wit, exuberance and theoretical sure-footedness, Milne takes us through a series of close readings.
Hibbitt succeeds in showing how this "empty figure" can, thanks to his openness, mirror the concerns of different times and cultures. Legenda, the publishers, are also to be commended for their usual attractive presentation. This new biography shows that he was a man of many parts Malcolm Cook draws on his unrivalled knowledge of Bernardin's manuscripts to give the life and works a personal and "cultural" frame. From this process emerges the unembellished and contained sketch of a writer who lived a full and interesting life during challenging times.
Specialists and general readers alike will certainly want to know more about Bernardin after reading this biography. This is a lucidly executed, perceptive and celebratory exploration of postmodern pastiche that clearly demonstrates the wealth of interest for narrative analysis that lies implicit within its comic absurdities, and Kemp assembles his own readings with the kind of rigour and conviction and occasionally, humour of which any great master detective could be proud.
An interesting but uneven collection. Brook, Modern Language Review Revolutionary literary studies are currently a 'hot' topic, but excavating, analyzing, and eventually constructing a viable canon out of this material will occupy scholars for years to come. Douthwaite, Eighteenth-Century Fiction Coates, Slavonic and East European Review Karine Zbinden and Alastair Renfrew are two of the excellent younger scholars from the Bakhtin Centre.

The overriding concern with cognition and models of communication, however, vindicates his inclusion, and indeed adds a richness to Gilby's already suggestive study The striking photograph shows us an empty world with a bleak railway line and its sidetracks, making their way into the fearful forested world that was Auschwitz, practically a symbol of the Final Solution. And with this in mind, Kathryn Jones's study is a success. Journeys of Remembrance is a valuable introduction to a body of post-WWII French and German writing concerned with the intergenerational transmission of memory and the relation between personal identity and cultural legacy.
Offers much to consider concerning the development and transmission of memory, generational continuity and rupture, and fictional representation in Holocaust literature. Sutton, French Review I recommend this book highly. It boasts the kind of finish that just makes reading particularly pleasant, and all the more so when its content inspires one to return to a relatively forgotten playwright who clearly deserves more attention than his Villon-like epitaph irreverently suggests: The result is a richly detailed assessment of specifically Belgian cultural production and of its European context, divided into two sections, the first spanning , and the second the inter-war years Altogether a delightful book, full of fascinating information and new insights, presented in a highly readable form.
French and Romance Philology
His persuasive conclusions will therefore be of interest not only to scholars working on nineteenth-century France, but indeed to the wider fields of gender studies and literary criticism. Drawing on a corpus of fifteen novels, he produces a series of authoritative close readings that demonstrate the extent to which the thinking of masculinity, and its inscription in literary representation, are inextricable for Sand.
The material is well structured and the writing style engaging, making it equally accessible to the student or more seasoned researcher. The discrediting of autobiographical attempts has been paralleled by an increasing demand for first-person testimony narratives. If we had thought that autobiography had had its day, Boyle demonstrates both that the genre itself is dynamic in ways we might not have previously imagined, and that the theory of autobiography continues to evolve in challenging and provocative ways.

MacDonald's work frames these two well-known texts in such a way as to encourage continued investigation of Renaissance biography as a fully-fledged prose genre. The second is the narrative of what might be called the facts of biographical life The third is what could be called a concetto, that is, the biographer's own life perspective, conscious or unconscious, in the biography he is writing.
This is what really interests Katherine MacDonald, because of her own radical-individualist perspective on relations between the biographer and his subject. Cross Currents and Resistances, this compendium addresses the question of the search within the modern humanities for new languages for criticism in the light of a broadening awareness of the increasingly interdisciplinary or intermedial nature of cultural production and research. Often lyrical and innovative in their critical style, these essays by distinguished contributors This is just one of the intriguing questions suggested by Balzac and the Model of Painting.
The Notes themselves are rich in linguistic, literary and mythological information and useful commentary on salient translation techniques. A Glossary and Table of Proper Names complete this elegant edition. I do indeed accept 'literature as [my] chosen and delimited field of study' though I try to see that field as part of a broader history.
And he is entirely accurate in saying that I see the subversions offered by nineteenth-century literature as largely falling short of 'true resistance' Of course the literature of the nineteenth century is racist according to our modern definitions; but racism is so vast and insidious a phenomenon that it is not in itself analytically useful and requires careful historical nuancing. In any case, although I am most interested in an approach that combines aesthetic and political concerns, and would regret such a rigid separation as Bongie appears to think necessary, I also differ from him in my belief in a supple and many-voiced criticism that does not need to dictate one single mode of textual analysis.
Impressive and admirably comparative. A well-informed and instructive survey of both utopia and poetry. All this makes Strands of Utopia: An important resource that should open up new means of addressing the ever-changing "'idea' of poetry". Certainly, in their attentiveness to detail, all of the articles in this volume provide exciting new insights into a much-studied text.
Although the theme of 'strangeness' is broad, the chapters cohere remarkably well and are of a uniformly high caliber. Bray, French Review Lyons, French Studies And in reading adaptations both forward and back against her selected texts, Griffiths provides for each of them an intelligent contribution to the thinking of students and specialists alike.
This is a superior study of literary—film interrelations, excellent and timely scholarship. Moreover Lewis skilfully combines insights from various fields literary history, genre studies, theory of representation, reader response to generate thought-provoking analysis, to provide a nuanced assessment of sensibility, and to suggest additional avenues that warrant investigation. Readers should be glad that Lewis has so adeptly read the signs and spectacles.
Deserves to be widely read for the perceptive and innovative readings that it contains. An important and stimulating book that should be compulsory reading not only for Zola specialists, but indeed for anyone interested in nineteenth-century France and the writing of modernity. It heralds the arrival of a significant new contributor to UK studies of European poetry and cultural history.
Owen, Modern Language Review Gillespie, German Quarterly Andrew Counter's absorbing book makes clear the extent to which the inheritance laws of the Revolution, and more particularly of the Code Civil of , were themselves at the core of this new cultural moment A pleasantly written, exhaustively researched and resourcefully argued book.
This is a thorough, thoughtful study which elegantly weaves together literary, political, and legal discourses and in doing so sheds new light on a hitherto little-explored but extremely rich topic. At every turn, the author carefully eschews the obvious, instead choosing the path less travelled This subtle and intelligent study succeeds in redefining our understanding of family and inheritance in the nineteenth century, and the importance of this seminal monograph should resonate widely within and beyond French Studies.
This slim, persuasive book leaves little meaning in any claim that creative immersion in the ancients was unknown until the Renaissance. It gives us a richly polymorphous reading of the Rose. Anna Kemp has written a book I would have liked to have written Any serious university library will want to include it in its collection. This erudite edition will interest students of seventeenth-century history, literature, and all those interested in the history of political dissent.
Hecquet, Michèle [WorldCat Identities]
I have no doubt that this edition will be essential reading for all scholars of the period. It also constitutes a valuable contribution to the history of sentiments and emotions. It bodes well for the MHRA New Translations series, of which this is the first and as such sets a high standard indeed.
In her hands, both French and English texts are made to speak to and of each other. This study is to be commended for its consistent advocacy and demonstration of that centrality. Kelly, French Studies For the detail of its analyses and for the breadth of its final perspectives, this volume is, therefore, a welcome addition to the Legenda imprint. Brings a unique analysis of Hugo's and Sartre's work, offering insights that may challenge readers to reconsider their previous understandings. Barnett, Modern and Contemporary France Thomas, Nineteenth-Century French Studies This book is excellent on philosophy of language and moral philosophy, and it should be of interest to scholars of either Hugo or Sartre, or both, as well as to post-modernists interested in human experience and freedom.
Deserves to become a point of reference for future studies within the field. The potential of the work reported here to inspire further investigation is considerable. In fact, dealing with the linguistic impact of news translation, the study provides evidence of the detrimental impact of lack of regulations, ethics and professionalism in news translation.
In this way they form an individual trajectory, turning the study into a valuable source of orientation and stimulation for experts and newcomers to the field alike.

Haustein not only accomplishes the task, but manages to bring out a genuinely comparative account It is a pleasure to find the Jarry—Bonnard collaboration given thorough analysis Will reward readers interested in the overlap and lines of affinity between the domains of literature and philosophy. Equally, as critical explorations of a variety of nineteenth- and twentieth-century narrative artefacts and practices, [these essays] are a pleasure to read, combining to create a collection that is an academic delight and would certainly have delighted the woman to whom it is dedicated.
This is as much a contribution to philosophy as it is to film studies. It is a highly intelligent and eloquent performance, and certainly an original contribution to the field. The convincing way in which significant aspects of the work of these three cineastes are woven together in such an attractive fashion turns the overcoming of the apparent difficulties into a triumph.
West, French Review James Alexander, French Studies Her study will be welcomed by eighteenth-century scholars. As a result, she can demonstrate how ostensibly escapist fiction was saturated with contemporary references The book provides fresh and detailed exposition of key novels within the revolutionary corpus, and triumphantly succeeds in making a case for the political sub-currents bubbling away within some seemingly innocuous fiction.
In this chapter, she makes a 'systematic examination of editors' and translators' choices' that reveal a dynamic, cross-Channel conversation about the convulsions in France and their consequences. Smart, Nineteenth-Century French Studies Astbury is absolutely right to insist on the historical and literary significance of the fiction of the s. Given the historical impact of these years, it seems extraordinary that later generations of scholars have expressed such little interest in these works.
