A travers l'examen des diverses traditions critiques qui ont entrepris, du XVIIe siècle à nos jours, de préciser les origines du roman, à travers l'étude des romans de la modernité, à travers l'examen spécifique des commencements formels ou de leur négation, à l'époque romantique, les études de cet ouvrage posent à neuf la question des commencements du roman

Principes de la théorie littéraire by Jean Bessière( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in French and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a beaucoup glosé sur les impasses de la critique et de la théorie littéraires contemporaines. Partant du constat que la crise des études littéraires est indissociable d'un certain aveuglement à l'œuvre même, l'auteur entreprend ici, dans une perspective à la fois philosophique, historique et rhétorique, de lire de manière organisée les grands genres, les grandes poétiques, les grands mouvements des littératures européennes. Un tel travail de caractérisation lui permet d'examiner les paradoxes formels et sémantiques de toute œuvre, de reformuler les statuts de l'auteur et du lecteur, et de dessiner enfin une approche cohérente des fonctions de la littérature

Contextualizing world literature( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book revisits the notion of World Literature and its applications in Comparative Literature. It suggests the notion not as a means to sift out international paradigms for reading literatures, but as a set of guidelines for the construction of interlocking and/or reciprocally illuminating multilingual literary clusters. These ensembles are of very diverse shapes: the world, a region, a country, a language block, a network of cross-cultural ±interferences» – while the so-called minor literatures invite to question the use of these ensembles. Within this frame, fourteen essays respond to the basic paradox of World Literature: how may specific methodological and critical outlooks allow expression of the universal? The answers to this question can be arranged in three groups: 1. Recognition of the need to break loose from European or Western critical perspectives; 2. Presentation of macro- and microcosmic dimensions connectedness and its processes; 3. Definitions of the methodological efforts and hermeneutic orientations to be applied.0
