The fantastic : a structural approach to a literary genre by Tzvetan Todorov( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 2013 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quoique très controversé, cet ouvrage demeure une tentative rigoureuse de catégorisation dont l'auteur ne cache pas les postulats nécessaires. Faisant consister le fantastique comme une hésitation entre la foi absolue et l'incrédulité totale, il le condamne à une existence éphémère entre le merveilleux et l'étrange. Ce livre, malgré ses mérites, demeure un échec honorable, largement discuté dans les ouvrages parus sur le sujet après 1971, date de la publication originale

Vom Umschlag: Devereux' Originalität besteht darin, dass er die Psychoanalyse für die Erkenntniskritik fruchtbar gemacht hat. Die Art und Weise, wie bestimmte Vorstellungen und Affekte im Kopf und in der Psyche des Wissenschaftlers zustande kommen, ist analysierbar geworden. (Mario Erdheim)

A proper marriage : a complete novel ... by Doris Lessing( Book )

7 editions published between 1981 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intelligent, sensitive, and fiercely passionate, Martha Quest is a young woman living on a farm in Africa, feeling her way through the torments of adolescence and early womanhood. She is a romantic idealistic in revolt against the puritan snobbery of her parents, trying to live to the full with every nerve, emotion, and instinct laid bare to experience. For her, this is a time of solitary reading daydreams, dancing -- and the first disturbing encounters with sex. The first of Doris Lessing's timeless Children of Violence novels, Martha Quest is an endearing masterpiece.</
