Oliver!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young orphan, Oliver is left to fend for himself until he is befriended by a band of young thieves who quickly train him in their craft. But Oliver is not content to be a thief--for he knows that life holds great joys and true happiness cannot be stolen--but must be earned. Arguably the last great old-fashioned movie musical to receive near-universal critical acclaim, Oliver! first hit screens more than 37 years ago. As transformed into a film, the timeless West End and Broadway show remains incredibly faithful to the classic work of literature by Charles Dickens, dank and dark, an anomaly of song-and-dance cinema. A film of many facets, it is both a warts-and-all view of Victorian London, an adaptation of a classic novel, a salient slice of significant social commentary, and a rip-roaring tune-filled toe tapper to boot

The logic of sense by Gilles Deleuze( Book )

9 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A travers des séries de paradoxes antiques et modernes, ce livre cherche à déterminer le statut du sens et du non-sens, et d'abord leur lieu. Où se passe exactement ce qu'on appelle un " événement "? La profondeur, la hauteur et la surface entrent dans des rapports complexes constitutifs de la vie. Les stoïciens furent un nouveau type de philosophes. Lewis Carroll fut un nouveau type d'écrivain, parce qu'il partait à la conquête des surfaces. Il se peut que cette conquête soit le plus grand effort de la vie psychique, dans la sexualité comme dans la pensée. Et que, dans le sens et le non-sens, " le plus profond c'est la peau "
