Pascal Paoli en Angleterre : trente-trois années d'exil et d'engagement by Francis Beretti( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La période d'activité politique de Pascal Paoli concernant son gouvernement de la Corse face à la domination génoise (1755-1769) est bien étudiée et documentée, par les historiens et les biographes du chef corse, ainsi que le rôle qu'il a joué pendant la période révolutionnaire, et sous le régime du royaume anglo-corse (1790-1795). En revanche, les deux séjours que Paoli a effectués en Angleterre, de 1769 à 1790, et de 1795 jusqu'à sa mort survenue en 1807, sont longtemps restés dans l'ombre. On en comprend aisément la raison : à ces moments-là, Paoli n'est plus en position de peser sur les événements, et les États pour qui la Corse pourrait représenter un enjeu ne s'intéressent pas au général en exil. On se propose dans le présent ouvrage de mieux éclairer la "période anglaise" de Paoli en s'appuyant sur sa correspondance, toujours en cours de publication, sur la monumentale édition des "papiers" de James Boswell dirigée par l'Université de Yale, et sur un manuscrit dactylographié inédit d'une historienne anglaise, Mrs Frances Vivian. On voit que Pascal Paoli était reçu parmi l'élite de la nation anglaise, dans un pays où le roi George III et certains cercles littéraires et aristocratiques lui prodiguèrent un accueil respectueux et généreux ; dans un pays où, en définitive, il passa près de la moitié de sa vie."--P.

An account of Corsica, the journal of a tour to that island ; and memoirs of Pascal Paoli by James Boswell( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first complete reprint of James Boswell's book on Corsica since the eighteenth century is enhanced by comprehensive annotation, textual apparatus, and a critical introduction. Boswell designed his text in two parts, first, an "Account" of Corsica, which gives a historical, political, socioeconomic, and cultural overview of the Corsican people, and second, the "Journal" of his tour to see the Corsican leader Pascal Paoli in 1765. This edition, unlike so many reprints of just the "Journal," allows the reader to appreciate Boswell's original design." "The young and adventuresome Boswell wanted to write a book that would swing public opinion, and perhaps the British government, to support the Corsicans in their struggle for independence. He was well aware that his English readers had but the haziest ideas about Corsica, gleaned from just snatches of news in the papers. The first part would therefore provide the context within which to understand and appreciate his account of his journey to and meeting with Paoli." "The complete text also illustrates aspects of Boswell that have received less attention than they might, namely, his sense of history, his political enthusiasm for national liberty, and his scholarship."--Jacket

Minority languages and their evolutions with and within people the case of the corsican language in the romance-speaking world by Cedric Joseph Oliva( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Once upon a language ... as part of the unfair circumstances that are brought upon a language, Corsican was very often mistaken as a patois. Over the past century it had to resist varied attempts designed to eliminate it. This unfortunate situation was due to converging factors such as; the disappearance of an advantageous cocoon offered by the Italian world, the development of French monolingual language policy, sociopolitical language preferences inherent to a language in a low position in a diglossic system which resulted in the lowering of the user's perception of the language's status; and the amplification of these factors by the devastating effects of time, decreased usage, and the exclusion of Corsican from the domain of education. In a time where multiple language skills are regarded as a key skill to access the European Union and subsequently the world, Corsican has the potential to occupy a privileged position if its perception manages to shift from mere dialect to a tool for intercomprehension and plurilinguism. This research explores the positions of the Corsican language in its local and global contexts and the relationship (which we will define as Intramovements and Intermovements) and perception that Corsican speakers have of these positions. The study traces the early emergence of language on the island, to the arrival of Latin, to the slow and then abrupt shift from being ensconced in the Italian world to being the object of oppressive French linguistic policy, which resulted in deterioration in status. At the same time, the historical survey demonstrates how Corsican has always been anchored as a language in the romance world. The research then turns to the position of the Corsican language in the contemporary education system and how it has the potential to serve as a bridge to the romance language world and to become a language representing Corsican 'openmindedness' in the future. Finally, the thesis raises the question of whether the practice of the Corsican language by the islanders is a "natural" element in the bilingual toolkit for intercomprehension with other romance languages, especially Italian. We will see that Italy, its language and culture, have acquired a special status in the eye of the islanders, sometimes loved for the strength it represents and sometimes loathed due to fear of a process labeled Gabbanization
