The rhetoric of sexuality and the literature of the French Renaissance by Lawrence D Kritzman( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1991 book examines the relationship between psychoanalytic theory and the literature of the French Renaissance by exploring the issues of gender, the body, and repression in many of the key literary texts of the period, including Scève, Rabelais, Marguerite de Navarre, Ronsard, and Montaigne. By means of detailed readings of individual texts, Lawrence Kritzman examines how sexuality functions as a rhetorical trope through which desire is represented. Professor Kritzman's study concentrates on three major objectives: the issues of gender identity and sexual difference in French Renaissance texts; the question of how the body is represented in the blasons, love poetry and prose of the period; and the way in which figural language depicts the libidinal, political and social tensions at work in texts. It was the first wide-ranging theoretical study to provide reading models to investigate the taboo subject of sexuality underlying literary production in the French Renaissance
Auschwitz and after : race, culture, and "the Jewish question" in France by Lawrence D Kritzman( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with Marcel Ophus's documentary The Sorrow and the Pity (1970) there has been an attempt to question the idea of a totally unified, courageous and resistant wartime France. Even more startling have been the increasingly shocking revelations that the politics of collaboration were a mere extension of a deep-seated French anti-semitic tradition. In the shadow of these developments French writers and philosophers today are reflecting on the meaning of Jewish identity in the contemporary world. Auschwitz and After</E

The theurgic image: Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, and the institutional praxis of the Counter-Reformation by Christopher Van Ginhoven( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shifting the focus away from the iconoclastic polemic, The Theurgic Image considers the relation between image and institution to revolve around the possibility of a praxis which, resisting the autonomization of action implicit in the Protestant doctrine of sola fide, would be endowed with a transcendental foundation. In its movement towards a consideration of beauty, it argues for the problematization of this praxis and of the institutions that embody it as the site of a prophetic articulation of the distinctly modern differentiation between technics and art
