Desiring the dead : necrophilia and nineteenth-century French literature by Lisa Downing( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the nineteenth century, literature shared with the medical and psychological sciences a strategy of examining the most extreme manifestations of human desire. In this study, Lisa Downing rescues necrophilia from the margins of sexuality, relocating it as a symptom and pervasive fantasy of modern subjectivity. Drawing case material from the nineteenth-century French canon, the author brings works by Baudelaire and Rachilde into dialogue with fundamental European texts of sexology and psycho-analysis. She reads against the grain of traditional Freudian theories of sexuality, of conventions of nineteenth-century literary scholarship and of feminist critiques of the 'masculine' morbid aesthetic in order to bring to light a model of desire whose problematic nature afflicts existing discourses about sexuality and gender in nineteenth-century France and beyond."--Jacket

Language, the novelist and national identity in post-Franco Catalonia by Kathryn Crameri( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kathryn Crameri focuses on a crucial moment of cultural change in Catalonia. She discusses the complex response of writers and literary critics to Spain's transition from dictatorship to democracy and to the new possibilities for the expression of Catalan identities which resulted from it. The study considers the cultural and political context of the Catalan novel from the 'Renaixenca' to the present day, and offers a detailed analysis of novels by four very different writersMontserrat Roig, Manuel de Pedrolo, Juan Marse (who writes in Spanish) and Biel Mesquida, all of whom share an underlying thematic preoccupation with individual and national 'transitions' and with the intricate relationship between language and identity. They challenge institutionalized visions of the link between Catalanism, and offer a more pluralistic and personalized version of Catalan identity."--BOOK JACKET
Towards a cultural philology : Phèdre and the construction of 'Racine' by Amy Wygant( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Amy Wygant reads Racine's Phedre (1677) through an analysis of its seventeenth-century cultural contexts and a consideration of its subsequent reception history. She explores the construction of Racinian language as 'musical', the poetics of the Racinian gaze, and Racine's labyrinthine eros of memory and forgetting. Reference is made to Lully's operas, the battle between the advocates of colour and the champions of drawing in the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture, and Le Notre's centreless garden labyrinth at Versailles. These close textual and contextual studies relate the detail of the tragedy to the conceptual sweep of seventeenth-century absolutism."--BOOK JACKET
Expressivism : the vicissitudes of a theory in the writing of Proust and Barthes by Johnnie Gratton( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Expressivism was the first European theory of art significantly to challenge the imitation theory rooted in Greek antiquity. Modern expressivism places the focus on the individual human subject as committed to finding 'les mots pour le dire', such that art becomes the most privileged means of self-realization." "In his survey of modern theories, Gratton reveals both the instability of the concept 'expressivism', and its continuing relevance in the contemporary world. In Proust, the movement of textualization radically unsettles the 'official' aesthetic programme of A la recherche du temps perdu, while in Barthes the move from a firmly anti-expressivist discourse to a more personalized writing manner unexpectedly allows a version of expressivism to gain a foothold in the postmodern context."--Jacket
