A short history of French literature by Sarah Kay ( Book )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book traces the history of French literature from its beginnings to the present. Within its remarkably brief compass, it offers a wide-ranging, personal, and detailed account of major writers and movements. Developments in French literature are presented in an innovative way, not as an even sequence of literary events but as a series of stories told at varying pace and with different kinds of focus. Readers can thus take in the broad sweep of historical change, grasp the main characteristics of major periods, or enjoy a close appraisal of individual works and their contexts. The book is written in an accessible and non-technical style that will make it attractive to students and to all those who enjoy French Literature."--BOOK JACKET
Proust among the stars by Malcolm Bowie ( Book )
15 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Proust Among the Stars gathers Proust's thoughts on the self, time, politics, art, sex, and death. Malcolm Bowie strikes a balance between life and literature that tantalizes the reader with insights as striking as those offered by Proust's generous narrator. No better introduction to Proust could be imagined: it brings readers back to the pleasures of the text rather than to the caprices of biography. It follows Proust into orbit and sends back truly startling pictures of our world

Lacan by Malcolm Bowie ( Book )
19 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901-1981) is a uniquely complex writer and the originator of an especially unsettling view of the human subject. But the singularity of Lacan's achievement has been understated by many of his critics. Often he is seen merely as a figure famous for being famous--an essential reference point in structuralist and poststructuralist debate--rather than as a theorist whose writings demand and reward detailed scrutiny. Malcolm Bowie traces the development of Lacan's ideas over the fifty-year span of his writing and teaching career. The primary focus is on the fascinating mutations in Lacan's interpretation of Freud. Bowie reinserts the celebrated slogans--"The unconscious is the discourse of the Other," "The unconscious is structured like a language," and so forth--into the history of Lacan's thinking, and pinpoints the paradoxes and anomalies that mark his account of human sexuality. This book provides a firm basis for the critical evaluation of Lacan's ideas and the rhetoric in which they are embedded; it is based on a close reading of Lacan's original texts but presupposes no knowledge of French in the reader
