2 editions published in 2003 in Japanese and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like Henry Petroski's The Pencil or Galen Cranz's The Chair, this elegant and entertaining work makes us reconsider an object at once simple and extraordinary. From antiquity to the present, the mirror has consistently occupied a unique place in our imaginations: as a site of the divine or demonic, of lucidity or madness. Through its lens, Sabine Melchior-Bonnet shows how the material world has worked its way into our consciousness, affecting the very way in which we perceive ourselves." "Melchior-Bonnet embellishes The Mirror with numerous surprising and compelling anecdotes. She describes Johannes Gutenberg plying his metallurgical skills to produce mirrors before turning to the printing press, and narrates how the Venetian Republic employed a combination of both subtle intimidation and outright assassination to protect its mirror-making secrets. Lewis Carroll's playful treatment of the mirror is contrasted to a short story of Rainer Maria Rilke, which describes the potential for madness within the reflective glass. The modern psyche's confusion in a world dominated by images is best captured by Andy Warhol's quip, "I am sure that I am going to look into the mirror and see nothing."" "The Mirror is cultural history at its best: a dazzling, virtuoso performance that readers of books like Carlo Ginzburg's The Cheese and the Worms or Robert Darnton's The Great Massacre will not be able to pass up."--Jacket

Le sacrifice et la communion des saints dans les romans de François Mauriac by Nozomi Takenaka( )

1 edition published in 1988 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bien que les romans de François Mauriac décrivent souvent l'incommunicabilité des êtres humains, ses personnages ne sont pas si solitaires qu'ils le croient. Si le sacrifice au sens profane (l'abnégation au profit de la famille dans la société bourgeoise, l'abandon de soi pour le bien-aimé) dément déjà le manque de solidarité, la véritable solidarité se situe au niveau spirituel. Croyant à la communion des saints, Mauriac transpose cette union spirituelle dans son oeuvre romanesque, qui devient un univers d'échanges, de compensations, de réversibilités. Non seulement ses personnages s'influencent mystiquement (la souffrance ou la mort des uns devenues propitiatoires profitent aux autres), mais ils sont aussi soutenus par tous ceux qui souffrent. Bien que ceux-ci n'apparaissent pas toujours dans les romans en tant que personnages, leur existence est rendue perceptible par le langage évocateur de Mauriac. Intégrant son univers romanesque dans le monde spirituel dans lequel les âmes s'entraident dépassant l'échelle spatio-temporelle, Mauriac transmet un message d'espérance: la vertu de solidarité ne manque pas à ses personnages, leurs péchés seront pardonnés grâce à la communion des saints, qui les unit à ceux qui rachètent le mal du monde, en imitant le Christ, dans leurs souffrances, sacrifices et amour
