Summary: Krakauer’s page-turning bestseller explores a famed missing person mystery while unraveling the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. "Terrifying... Eloquent... A heart-rending drama of human yearning." —New York Times In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How Christopher Johnson McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and, unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life. Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the drives and desires that propelled McCandless. When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity, and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page.

Summary: From its early focus on documentary film and nation building to its more recent spotlight on contemporary culture and feature filmmaking, Moroccan cinema has undergone tremendous change since the country's independence in 1956. In What Moroccan Cinema? A Historical and Critical Study, 1956-2006, Sandra Gayle Carter chronicles the changes in Moroccan laws, institutions, ancillary influences, individuals active in the field, representative films, and film culture during this fifty-year span. Focusing on Moroccan history and institutions relative to the cinema industry such as television, newspaper criticism, and Berber videomaking, What Moroccan Cinema? is an intriguing study of the ways in which three historical periods shaped the Moroccan cinema industry. Carter provides an insightful and thorough treatment of the cinema institution, discussing exhibition and distribution, censorship, and cinema clubs and caravans. Carter grounds her analysis by exploring representative films of each respective era. The groundbreaking analysis offered in What Moroccan Cinema? will prove especially valuable to those in film and Middle Eastern studies.

Summary: This volume investigates outstanding figures and configurations of literary and cultural multilingualism on a transcontinental and on a global scale.

The second focus is on the cross-cultural configuration of East and West shaped by some striking Sino-European and Sino-American events in early modern and modern times. A third issue concerns the glocal and globoglot 'people of paper' in a contemporary Californian town, and, lastly, the all-embracing, all-devouring ouroboros and other multi-lingual ophidians.

French Romantic Travel Writing Book by C. W. Thompson

  • ISBN Code: 0191642029

Summary: In the first half of the nineteenth century most leading French Romantic authors wrote travel books. French Romantic Travel Writing is the first study exclusively devoted to surveying the travelogues they produced and the reasons for, and significance of, this trend. Whilst 'the journey' was one of Romanticism's central images, suggesting as it did a dynamic, expanding, and evermore complex world in which artists' lives were increasingly experienced as wanderings and endless quests, the fashion for Romantic travel books was more marked in France than in Germany or England. Chateaubriand, Staël, Stendhal, Nodier, Hugo, Lamartine, Nerval, Gautier, Sand, Custine, Quinet, Mérimée, Dumas, and Tristan all wrote one or more travelogues, including at least four masterpieces-Hugo's Le Rhin (1842), Nerval's Voyage en Orient (1851), and Stendhal's two Rome, Naples et Florence (1817 and 1826). The book explores the reasons for this difference from England and Germany. These include French foreign and cultural policies, as well as the particular needs of Parisian publishers. It puts forward the case for the collective achievement of these Romantic travel books, compared to those of most later writers in nineteenth-century France. A distinctive feature of the survey is its belief in the value of concentrating on the text of these books as published by their authors, as opposed to manuscript and peripheral material.

  • ISBN Code: 9042026464

Summary: J.M.G. Le Clézio et la métaphore exotique propose une analyse détaillée et approfondie de l'œuvre de J.M.G. Le Clézio, prix Nobel de littérature 2008. La question de la « métaphore exotique » sert ici de fil conducteur et permet d'éclairer le corpus leclézien d'un triple point de vue textuel, anthropologique et psychanalytique. L'inscription problématique de l'espace et du voyage domine en effet toute la production littéraire de Le Clézio ; et cette inscription s'accompagne d'une certaine ambiguïté générique. D'une part l'analyse montre que l'écriture du voyage fonctionne chez Le Clézio, comme chez Segalen, comme une « écriture des limites », c'est-à-dire comme un déplacement du sujet et du sens. Mais d'autre part l'analyse montre que l'écriture du voyage dessine chez Le Clézio un rapport singulier et ambivalent à l'espace postmoderne, au désenchantement du monde et à la disparition des grands mythes fondateurs, interrogeant l'acte même de la création littéraire. A la fois humaniste et antidogmatique, l'œuvre de J.M.G. Le Clézio se situe ainsi de façon originale dans les marges des grands mouvements littéraires du XXe et du XXIe siècle, du Nouveau Roman des années 60 à la « littérature-monde » d'aujourd'hui.

Summary: While a great deal of postcolonial criticism has examined how the processes of hybridity, mestizaje, creolization, and syncretism impact African diasporic literature, Oakley employs the heuristic of the “commonplace” to recast our sense of the politics of such literature. Her analysis of commonplace poetics reveals that postcolonial poetic and political moods and aspirations are far more complex than has been admitted. African Atlantic writers summon the utopian potential of Romanticism, which had been stricken by Anglo-European exclusiveness and racial entitlement, and project it as an attainable, differentially common future. Putting poets Frankétienne (Haiti), Werewere Liking (Côte d’Ivoire), Derek Walcott (St Lucia), and Claudia Rankine (Jamaica) in dialogue with Romantic poets and theorists, as well as with the more recent thinkers Édouard Glissant, Walter Benjamin, and Emmanuel Levinas, Oakley shows how African Atlantic poets formally revive Romantic forms, ranging from the social utopian manifesto to the poète maudit, in their pursuit of a redemptive allegory of African Atlantic experiences. Common Places addresses issues in African and Caribbean literary studies, Romanticism, poetics, rhetorical theory, comparative literature, and translation theory, and further, models a postcolonial critique in the aesthetic-ethical and “new aestheticist” vein.

Hunger and Irony in the French Caribbean Book by Nicole Simek

Hunger and Irony in the French Caribbean Book
  • Author : Nicole Simek
  • Publisher : Springer
  • Release Date : 2016-11-14
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 201
  • ISBN Code: 1137558822

Summary: Through a series of case studies spanning the bounds of literature, photography, essay, and manifesto, this book examines the ways in which literary texts do theoretical, ethical, and political work. Nicole Simek approaches the relationship between literature, theory, and public life through a specific site, the French Antillean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique, and focuses on two mutually elucidating terms: hunger and irony. Reading these concepts together helps elucidate irony’s creative potential and limits. If hunger gives irony purchase by anchoring it in particular historical and material conditions, irony also gives a literature and politics of hunger a means for moving beyond a given situation, for pushing through the inertias of history and culture.

The Art of Survival Book by Libby Murphy

  • Pages : 304
  • ISBN Code: 0300225008

Summary: The First World War soldier has often been depicted as a helpless victim sacrificed by a ruthless society in the trenches of the Western Front. In fact, Libby Murphy reveals, French soldiers drew upon a long-standing European tradition to imagine themselves not as heroes or victims but as survivors. Murphy investigates how infantrymen and civilians attempted to make sense of the war while it was still in progress by reviving the picaresque, a literary mode in which unheroic protagonists are forced to fend for themselves in a chaotic and hostile world. By examining works by French and European novelists, journalists, graphic artists, cultural critics, and filmmakers—including Charlie Chaplin—Libby Murphy shows how the rich tradition of the European picaresque was uniquely appropriate for expressing anxieties provoked by modern, industrialized warfare.

  • ISBN Code: 0062325167

Summary: A New York Times Bestseller "The Wild Truth is an important book on two fronts: It sets the record straight about a story that has touched thousands of readers, and it opens up a conversation about hideous domestic violence hidden behind a mask of prosperity and propriety."– The spellbinding story of Chris McCandless, who gave away his savings, hitchhiked to Alaska, walked into the wilderness alone, and starved to death in 1992, fascinated not just New York Times bestselling author Jon Krakauer, but also the rest of the nation. Krakauer's book,Into the Wild, became an international bestseller, translated into thirty-one languages, and Sean Penn's inspirational film by the same name further skyrocketed Chris McCandless to global fame. But the real story of Chris’s life and his journey has not yet been told - until now. The missing pieces are finally revealed in The Wild Truth, written by Carine McCandless, Chris's beloved and trusted sister. Featured in both the book and film, Carine has wrestled for more than twenty years with the legacy of her brother's journey to self-discovery, and now tells her own story while filling in the blanks of his. Carine was Chris's best friend, the person with whom he had the closest bond, and who witnessed firsthand the dysfunctional and violent family dynamic that made Chris willing to embrace the harsh wilderness of Alaska. Growing up in the same troubled household, Carine speaks candidly about the deeper reality of life in the McCandless family. In the many years since the tragedy of Chris's death, Carine has searched for some kind of redemption. In this touching and deeply personal memoir, she reveals how she has learned that real redemption can only come from speaking the truth.

Summary: La France a échappé au terrorisme qu’ont connu l’Allemagne et l’Italie; de peu: les «maos», comme ils se désignaient eux-mêmes, prônaient dans notre pays l’affrontement violent avec le pouvoir et la police, les cadres des usines, les militants du parti communiste. C’est cette radicalité que l’on découvre dans ce récit autobiographique d’une ancienne de la Gauche prolétarienne que dirigeait Benny Lévy, un jeune et brillant philosophe dont le fanatisme ne se démentira jamais, avec aussi Olivier Rolin, Alain Geismar et bien d’autres. Voyage initiatique en Chine, Mai 68, activisme politique à Grenoble, séjours en prison, clandestinité, établissement en usine à Grenoble et à Sochaux, procès internes, Claire Brière-Blanchet a suivi ce chemin extrême jusqu’en 1973. La révolution ne lui a pas pris seulement sa jeunesse, mais aussi sa petite fille Judith. Ce drame scella l’échec de ces années d’ascétisme militant. Claire mettra des années à se reconstruire, et à pouvoir enfin raconter sa saisissante et terrifiante épopée. Étudiante en histoire à la Sorbonne, Claire Brière entre en extrême gauche en 1960 avec la guerre d’Algérie. Gauchiste, puis maoïste, elle passe quinze ans au service exclusif de ce qu’elle croit être la révolution, avec son mari Pierre Blanchet, qui sera tué en reportage en Croatie en 1991. En 1975, elle devient reporter à Libérationet publie des ouvrages sur l’Iran, puis le Liban, l’Égypte et l’Irak. De 1988 à 2007, elle est en charge des publications de «Médecins du Monde» et crée la revue Ingérences.

Summary: « Que deviennent les personnages une fois que le livre est refermé ? Resteront-ils au pays ? Seront-ils vraiment heureux ? Et surtout : qui veillera sur leurs enfants ? Je répondais à tes questions, mais, au fond, elles me semblaient dérisoires. Il y a un point final dans la vie comme dans les livres. Un point, c’est tout. » C’est un homme qui parle à son fils. On pourrait penser que cet homme-là voudrait laisser à l’enfant qu’il aime, malgré tout, la griffe du passé que luimême n’a pas reçue. Car son père à lui n’a pas expliqué. Il reste et restera une figure fantôme, toujours en fuite. Expliquer quoi ? Qu’il a vieilli trop vite à un âge où les autres s’amusent ? Qu’il s’est échappé, a mis un point final au village, sa langueur, pour être plus heureux, sans jamais y parvenir ? Manuel tente de vaines explications. Il raconte une existence somme toute banale, sans gaieté, peut-être trop sage. La maladie, les incompréhensions, les ratages ; tracas ordinaires qu’on préférerait voir empilés dans un carton pour courir vers un avenir plus doux. Ne pas refaire l’histoire. Ne pas finir par imiter ce qui nous a fait horreur. Mais une fois l’histoire achevée, que deviennent les personnages ? Et saura-t-on répondre à cette question ? Bernardo Toro raconte la répétition d’une vie d’homme, ses tentatives avortées pour ne pas réécrire le passé, pour prouver que lui sait être heureux. C’est le roman d’un homme ordinaire écrit de manière extraordinaire : les mots tremblent, la ponctuation se défile et la phrase est sur le point d’éclater, alors que se déroule le fil ininterrompu de la narration. Le quotidien implose et cette vie de fils à fils prend alors toute sa tournure dramatique

Summary: « C'est dans un miroir que j'ai croisé le premier regard d'Aurore. Elle se tenait derrière moi. Nos regards purent ainsi s'attarder avec impudeur, l'un dans l'autre, sans que personne ne s'en avise. Il n'est pas indifférent que ce soit ce miroir qui nous ait, en quelque sorte, rapprochés. Pas indifférent, non plus, que son visage me soit parvenu alors que je lui tournais le dos. J'avais eu, tout de suite, l'impression que cette femme sortait de mon passé et, de ce fait, il me parut naturel de la reconnaître sans l'avoir jamais vue. Tout, dans ce qui s'ensuivit, se déduira de cet enchaînement. En amour, c'est toujours le passé qui donne des ordres... » Le narrateur, piégé par la beauté et le mystère d'Aurore, se lance à corps perdu dans cet amour sublime. Aurore se donne, fuit, louvoie, embrase la vie joyeuse... et disparaît. Qui donc est cette femme aux cents visages ? Putain ? Princesse polonaise ? Femme damnée ? Reine Le narrateur enquête sur lui-même, sur la beauté qu'il aimait, méduse au corps multiple, à l'âme fausse - et les mots seuls apaisent le sang blessé.
