A short history of French literature by Sarah Kay( )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 2,441 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."--Jacket

Daniel Deronda by George Eliot( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deronda, a high-minded young man searching for his path in life, finds himself drawn by a series of dramatic encounters into two contrasting worlds: the English country-house life of Gwendolen Harleth, a high-spirited beauty trapped in an oppressive marriage, and the very different lives of a poor Jewish girl, Mirah, and her family. As Deronda uncovers the long-hidden secret of his own parentage, Eliot's moving and suspenseful narrative opens up a world of Jewish experience previously unknown to the Victorian novel
Neo-Latin and the vernacular in renaissance France( Book )

14 editions published in 1984 in English and French and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In planning this volume, we had two aims. In the first place, we wanted to make a contribution to an important area of Renaissance studies, one which is now rapidly expanding. NeoLatin writing has at last come to be seen not just as a pedantic adjunct of humanist interest in the classics, but as a vigorous medium for intellectual and literary expression in its own right. At the same time, we conceived the volume as a tribute to Ian McFarlane from some at least of his friends and colleagues, honoring the major contribution he himself has made, and continues to make, to neo-Latin and French Renaissance studies. We are aware that his versatility as a scholar cannot be fully reflected in a volume devoted to a single topic and a single period of French culture, and we extend our apologies to the large number of colleagues who would no doubt have wished to associate themselves with this project had our frame of reference been broader. Nevertheless, we believe that our chosen subject not only falls within Ian McFarlane's main field of research, but also symbolizes the ideal of international communication and co-operation for which he has worked throughout his career. -- Editors
Thinking with literature : towards a cognitive criticism by Terence Cave( Book )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To speak of "thinking with literature" is to make the assumption that literature (in the broadest sense) is neither a side-show nor a side-issue in human cultures: it belongs to the spectrum of imaginative modes that includes both philosophical and scientific thought. Whether one regards it as a practice or as an archive, literature is highly pervasive, robust, enduring, and pregnant with values. Thinking with Literature argues that what it affords above all is a way of thinking, whether for writer, reader, or critic

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terence Cave traces the afterlives of Mignon, an apparently minor character in Goethe's novel Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre, through the European cultures of the 19th and 20th centuries.

15 editions published in 1972 in French and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas More's Utopia in early modern Europe : paratexts and contexts( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas More's Utopia in Early Modern Europe provides the first complete account of all the editions of Utopia, whether vernacular or Latin, printed before 1650. The reception of the idea of Utopia in early modern Europe has been studied extensively before: what has been lacking is a composite picture of how Utopia moved by means of translation from culture to culture and of the ways in which particular versions offered themselves to their readers." "This book will be of interest to specialists in early modern cultural history and history of the book, to graduate students working in these fields, and to anyone for whom the extraordinary success of More's Utopia as a book published on the European market remains a perennial fascination."--Jacket
Ronsard by André Berry( Book )

Reading beyond the code : literature and relevance theory( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the value for literary studies of the model of communication known as relevance theory. Drawing on a wide range of examples--lyric poems by Yeats, Herrick, Heaney, Dickinson, and Mary Oliver, novels by Cervantes, Flaubert, Mark Twain, and Edith Wharton--nine of the ten essays are written by literary specialists and use relevance theory both as a broad framing perspective and as a resource for detailed analysis. The final essay, by Deirdre Wilson, co-founder (with Dan Sperber) of relevance theory, takes a retrospective view of the issues addressed by the volume and considers the implications of literary studies for cognitive approaches to communication. Relevance theory, described by Alastair Fowler as 'nothing less than the makings of a radically new theory of communication, the first since Aristotle's', offers a comprehensive pragmatics of language and communication grounded in evidence about the ways humans think and behave. While designed to capture the everyday murmur of conversation, gossip, peace-making, hate speech, love speech, 'body-language', and the chatter of the internet, it covers the whole spectrum of human modes of communication, including literature in the broadest sense as a characteristically human activity. Reading Beyond the Code is unique in using relevance theory as a prime resource for literary study, and it is also the first to claim that the model works best for literature when understood in the light of a broader cognitive approach, focusing on a range of phenomena that support an 'embodied' conception of cognition and language. This broadened perspective serves to enhance the value for literary studies of the central claim of relevance theory, that the 'code model' is fundamentally inadequate to account for human communication, and in particular for the modes of communication that are proper to literature"--Publisher's description
Retrospectives : essays in literature, poetics and cultural history by Terence Cave( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terence Cave's work has made a major contribution to the rethinking of the relationship between literature, history and culture over the last half-century. Retrospectives brings together substantially revised versions of studies written since 1970: together they constitute a searching methodological investigation of the practice of reading past texts. How do our ways of reading such texts compare with those practised in the periods when they were written? How do we distinguish between what a text meant in its own time and what it has come to mean over time? And how might reading provide access to past experiences? The book's epicentre is early modern French culture, but it extends to that culture's ancient Greek and Roman models, its European contexts, and the afterlives of some of its themes, from Pascal via George Eliot to Angela Carter."--Jacket
Pré-Histoires II : langues étrangères et troubles économiques au XVIe siècle by Terence Cave( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in French and French, Middle and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The princesse de Clèves ; The princesse de Montpensier ; The comtesse de Tende by La Fayette( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poised between the fading world of chivalric romance and a new psychological realism, Madame de Lafayette's novel of passion and self-deception marks a turning point in the history of the novel. When it first appeared anonymously in 1678--in the heyday of French classicism--it aroused fierce controversy among critics and readers, particularly for the extraordinary confession which forms the climax of the story. It is now regarded as a landmark in the history of women's writing. In this entirely new translation, The Princesse de Cleves is accompanied by two shorter works also attributed to Mme de Lafayette, The Princesse de Montpensier and The Comtesse de Tende."--Back cover
Pre-histories and afterlives : studies in critical method for Terence Cave by Anna Holland( Book )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If the past is indeed a foreign country, then how can we make sense of its richness and difference without approaching it on our terms alone? 'Pre-histories' and 'afterlives', critical methods that have emerged in recent work by Terence Cave, offer new ways of shaping the stories we tell of the past and the analyses we offer. In this volume, distinguished contributors engage in a dialogue with these two new critical methods, exploring their uses in a range of contexts, disciplines, languages and periods, ranging from medieval mysticism, through Montaigne and Diderot, to the present day."--BOOK JACKET
How to read Montaigne by Terence Cave( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Montaigne (1533-92) is commonly regarded as an early modern sceptic, standing at the threshold of a new secular way of thinking. He is also known for his groundbreaking exploration of the 'subject' or the 'self'.

Taking passages from many different chapters of the Essais, this book guides the the reader through Montaigne's investigation of the 'subtle shades and stirrings' of the mind
