"This novel recounts the battle of the first-person narrator not only with AIDS but also with the medical establishment on both sides of the Atlantic." "In this study, Ralph Sarkonak examines many aspects of Guibert's life and production: the connection between his books and his photography, his complex relationship with Roland Barthes and with his friend and mentor Michel Foucault. Using close textual analysis, Sarkonak tracks the convolutions of Guibert's particular form of life-writing, in which fact and fiction are woven into a corpus that evolves from and revolves around his preoccupations, obsessions, and relationships, including his problematic relationship with his own body, both before and after his HIV-positive diagnosis."--Jacket

A selection of a half-dozen of articles compares the current intellectual climates of the United States and France regarding contemporary dissonances, lamenting with piqued compunction their "strange impermeability" (13). These two pioneering democracies, founded two hundred years ago, are hurling at each other the language of their creation, the Americans immensely proud of a dozen years seniority and the French ... of their Frenchness. Or at least, that is what the arti-cles claim. Close reading of the most significant pieces may make the disaccord more substantive ... -- From JSTOR (Dec. 12, 2011)

Les spirales du sens chez Renaud Camus( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in French and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les Spirales du sens chez Renaud Camus a pour but de donner une idée de l'œuvre multiforme de Renaud Camus, laquelle comprend maintenant plus de soixante-dix livres, sans parler des sites de l'auteur, dont Vaisseaux brûlés, et celui du parti de l'In-nocence. Peu de lecteurs de Camus ont tout lu; quant à ses critiques et détracteurs, lors de l'affaire Camus ou après, on sait que souvent ils n'avaient lu de cette vaste œuvre que quelques phrases tronquées citées hors contexte. C'est pourquoi il semble opportun de jeter un (nouveau) coup d'œil sinon sur toute l'œuvre, tâche quasi impossible, du moins sur certains de ses versants, tenants et aboutissants. Vu les travaux déjà accomplis, on a fait le choix de ne pas trop s'attarder sur les textes romanesques inépuisables. On poursuivra plutôt la discussion au sujet de cette Affaire dont certains se plaisent à nier l'existence aujourd'hui. Notre collectif tient compte aussi du site du Parti fondé par Renaud Camus en 2002. D'autre part plusieurs articles insistent de manière variée sur l'importance du Journal qu'on peut considérer comme le tronc d'une œuvre qui n'arrête pas de croítre, poussant ses feuilles en maintes directions, tantôt du côté de la pure littérature, tantôt de la polémique politique ou autre."--Publisher's website

In 1990 Hervé Guibert gained wide recognition and notoriety with the publication of "A l'ami qui ne m'a pas sauvé la vie (To the Friend Who Did Not Save My Life)". This novel, one of the most famous AIDS fictions in French or any language, recounts the battle of the first-person narrator not only with AIDS but also with the medical establishment on both sides of the Atlantic. Photography critic for Le Monde from 1977-1985, Guibert was also the co-author (with Patrice Chéreau) of a film script, L'Homme Blessé, which won a César in 1984, and author of more than twenty-five books, eight of which have been translated into English. In this vibrant and unusual study, Ralph Sarkonak examines many intriguing aspects of Guibert's life and production: the connection between his books and his photography, his complex relationship with Roland Barthes and with his friend and mentor Michel Foucault (relationships that were at once literary, intellectual, and personal in each case); the ties between his writing and that of his contemporaries, including Renaud Camus, France's most prolific gay writer; and his development of an AIDS aesthetic. Using close textual analysis, Sarkonak tracks the convolutions of Guibert's particular form of life-writing, in which fact and fiction are woven into a corpus that evolves from and revolves around his preoccupations, obsessions, and relationships, including his problematic relationship with his own body, both before and after his HIV-positive diagnosis. Guibert's work is a brilliant example of the emphasis on disclosure that marks recent queer writing-in contrast to the denial and cryptic allusion that characterized much of the work by gay writers of previous generations. Yet, as Sarkonak concludes, Guibert treats the notions of falsehood and truth with a postmodern hand: as overlapping constructs rather than mutually exclusive ones - or, to use Foucault's expression, as "games with truth."

Same sex/different text : gay and lesbian writing in French( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are French writers in France and North America who are gay or lesbian, but do they practice lesbian and gay writing? In "Same Sex/Different Text? Gay and Lesbian Writing in French," lesbian and gay writers are juxtaposed; photographs and texts look at each other; and literary observers ask about "gay erotics," queer rhetoric, and how to sort out the effects of sexual preference, homophobia, time and place, and literary and artistic tradition
