3 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette vue d'ensemble du roman américain depuis la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale met en relief une période d'une extrême richesse où coexistent immobilisme et innovation, littérature traditionnelle et expériences littéraires hardies.

L'année 1925 : l'esprit d'une époque by Claude Leroy (dir.) Myriam Boucharenc( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a des dates qui comptent, d'autres qui tombent en poussière. ? À la manière de 1900 qui selon Paul Morand fêtait les noces d'or du passé et de l'avenir, l'année 1925 s'est imposée à la mémoire collective comme une année mythique. Entre l'armistice de 1918 et la crise de 1929, les années vingt, profondément marquées par la Grande Guerre, présentent un singulier mélange de désarroi, de révolte et de frivolité. Soutenus par un développement sans précédent des transports et des médias, l'éloge de la vitesse et le ± bel optimisme des machines ? cher à Blaise Cendrars se diffusent comme des mots de passe. Sous le signe du jazz, la mythologie de ces ± Années folles ? se forge au Boeuf sur le toit autour de Jean Cocteau, tandis que Fantômas et Charlot, la garçonne de Victor Margueritte et Coco Chanel, la Lulu de Pabst et d'Alban Berg, la Nadja d'André Breton, tendent leurs miroirs aux incertitudes du temps. Au ± nouvel mal du siècle ? font réplique, ici, un renouveau de l'aventure et, là, un regain de la spiritualité. 1925 marque un apogée et un tournant. Deux manifestations dominent la saison à Paris : la Revue nègre au Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, avec Joséphine Baker et Sidney Bechet, et l'Exposition internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes ? les Arts décos ? qui va définir le style de l'époque. Caractériser l'esprit de 1925 sur un plan international, dans les arts comme en littérature, faire apparaître le fragile équilibre de ses tendances et de ses tensions, interroger dans ses contradictions l'appel à un ordre nouveau, telles sont les ambitions du présent ouvrage

A new language for psychoanalysis by Roy Schafer( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Roy Schafer offers a radical reconceptualization of Freudian metapsychology. When Freud wrote about his discoveries of the unconscious and the nature of psychic processes, he used the language of the prevailing scientific theories of his time -- energy, force, and mechanism. In contrast, Schafer sees psychoanalysis as an interpretive discipline, a human science that requires a language of its own, unencumbered by the old natural science concepts. Schafer proposes a new language for psychoanalysis, freed from the ambiguities and biases of mechanistic theory. His formulation is based on the notion of action, were "action" is understood to mean the widest variety of human behavior: perceiving, organizing, fantasying, wishing, and doing -- consciously and unconsciously. -- Description of the source book

De ce "pays des choses dernières" où elle tente de survivre au froid et au désespoir, Anna Blume -venue chercher son frère disparu- écrit une longue lettre dont on ne sait si elle trouvera jamais son destinataire : ses errances dans une ville aux rues éventrées, sa lutte pour subsister parmi les "chasseurs d'objets" et les "ramasseurs d'ordures", la mort omniprésente, la difficulté de vivre des amours durables... revêtent ici une force symbolique d'une actualité étonnante. Et cette lettre, en même temps qu'elle éveille en lui un passé de terreurs et d'apocalypse, interroge insidieusement le lecteur sur son rapport au monde et au langage. (4e de couv.)

Anna Blume comes to an unnamed city in search of her brother. In her struggle to survive, Anna becomes a scavenger in search of objects from the past to sell for food and shelter. But she will also find friendship--and even love--in this devastated world."--Page 4 of cover
Legs by William Kennedy( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Phelan becomes a hobo after accidentally killing his son, but when he returns 22 years later, he cannot reunite his family." " ... 'Legs' brilliantly evokes the flamboyant career of the legendary gangster Jack "Legs" Diamond, who was finally murdered in Albany. Through the equivocal eyes of Diamond's attorney, Marcus Gorman (who scraps a promising political career for the more elemental excitement of the criminal underworld), we watch as Legs and his showgirl mistress, Kiki Roberts, blaze their gaudy trail across the tabloid pages of the 1920s and the 1930s. Diamond and his gangster entourage emerge as emblematic figures from an era of American innocence -- and corruption."
