James Joyce and the politics of egoism by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In James Joyce and the politics of egoism a leading scholar approaches the entire Joycean canon through the concept of "egoism". This concept, Jean-Michel Rabaté argues, runs throughout Joyce's work, and involves and incorporates its opposite, "hospitality", a term Rabaté understands as meaning an ethical and linguistic opening to "the other". Rabaté explores Joyce's complex negotiation between these two poles in a study of interest to all scholars of modernism

This significant year was marked by many critical events and happenings, such as the first international recognition of non-Western writers when the Nobel Prize in literature was awarded to Rabindranath Tagore; it was also the last year of peace before the eruption of the First World War."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ghosts of modernity by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conclusion ties together all these motifs, from Joyce to Barthes, and shows their theoretical basis in Marx's criticism of ideology and in Freud's consideration of mourning. From the analysis of "color" as an unthinkable object of discourse to an aesthetics of the unpresentable, Rabate points to the possibility of an "ethics of mourning," which would seem capable of overcoming the dead end of history whose ending condemns it to eternal repetition

The Cambridge introduction to literature and psychoanalysis by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is an introduction to the relationship between psychoanalysis and literature. Jean-Michel Rabaté takes Sigmund Freud as his point of departure, studying in detail Freud's integration of literature in the training of psychoanalysts and how literature provided crucial terms for his myriad theories, such as the Oedipus complex. Rabate; subsequently surveys other theoreticians such as Wilfred Bion, Marie Bonaparte, Carl Jung, Jacques Lacan, and Slavoj Žižek. This Introduction is organized thematically, examining in detail important terms like deferred action, fantasy, hysteria, paranoia, sublimation, the uncanny, trauma, and perversion. Using examples from Miguel de Cervantes and William Shakespeare to Sophie Calle and Yann Martel, Rabaté demonstrates that the psychoanalytic approach to literature, despite its erstwhile controversy, has recently reemerged as a dynamic method of interpretation"--

The ethics of the lie by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do we live in an age when disinformation has reached such a fevered pitch that we can dismiss everything presented as "fact" or "news"? In questioning this widespread skepticism, Rabate deconstructs the pathology of lies and their logical mechanisms, leading us back to the continuing debates of the great philosophers - Plato, Nietzsche, and Aristotle - and their philosophical foundations."--Jacket

Think, pig! : Beckett at the limit of the human by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines Samuel Beckett's unique lesson in courage in the wake of humanism's postwar crisis--the courage to go on living even after experiencing life as a series of catastrophes. Rabaté, a former president of the Samuel Beckett Society and a leading scholar of modernism, explores the whole range of Beckett's plays, novels, and essays. He places Beckett in a vital philosophical conversation that runs from Bataille to Adorno, from Kant and Sade to Badiou. At the same time, he stresses Beckett's inimitable sense of metaphysical comedy. Foregrounding Beckett's decision to write in French, Rabaté inscribes him in a continental context marked by a "writing degree zero" while showing the prescience and ethical import of Beckett's tendency to subvert the "human" through the theme of the animal. Beckett's "declaration of inhuman rights," he argues, offers the funniest mode of expression available to us today"--

1922 : literature, culture, politics by Jean-Michel Rabaté( Book )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1922: Literature, Culture, Politics examines key aspects of culture and history in 1922, a year made famous by the publication of several modernist masterpieces, such as T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land and James Joyce's Ulysses. Individual chapters written by leading scholars offer new contexts for the year's significant works of art, philosophy, politics, and literature. 1922 also analyzes both the political and intellectual forces that shaped the cultural interactions of that privileged moment. Although this volume takes post-World War I Europe as its chief focus, American artists and authors also receive thoughtful consideration. In its multiplicity of views, 1922 challenges misconceptions about the 'Lost Generation' of cultural pilgrims who flocked to Paris and Berlin in the 1920s, thus stressing the wider influence of that momentous year
