9781138640771Reconnecting Aestheticism and Modernism. Continuities, Revisions, Speculations. Edited by Bénédicte Coste, Catherine Delyfer, Christine Reynier, Routledge, 2016.

Charting the period that extends from the 1860s to the 1940s, this volume offers fresh perspectives on Aestheticism and Modernism. By acknowledging that both movements had a passion for the ‘new’, it goes beyond the alleged divide between Modernism and its predecessors. Rather than reading the modernist credo, ‘Make it New!’, as a desire to break away from the past, the authors of this book suggest reading it as a continuation and a reappropriation of the spirit of the ‘New’ that characterizes Aestheticism. Basing their arguments on recent reassessments of Aestheticism and Modernism and their articulation, contributors take up the challenge of interrogating the connections, continuities, and intersections between the two movements, thus revealing the working processes of cultural and aesthetic change so as to reassess the value of the new for each. Attending to well-known writers such as Waugh, Woolf, Richardson, Eliot, Pound, Ford, Symons, Wilde, and Hopkins, as well as to hitherto neglected figures such as Lucas Malet, L.S. Gibbon, Leonard Woolf, or George Egerton, they revise assumptions about Aestheticism and Modernism and their very definitions. This collection brings together international scholars specializing in Aestheticism or Modernism who push their analyses beyond their strict period of expertise and take both movements into account through exciting approaches that borrow from aesthetics, philosophy, or economics. The volume proposes a corrective to the traditional narratives of the history of Aestheticism and Modernism, revitalizing definitions of these movements and revealing new directions in aestheticist and modernist studies.

insults-nvgShakespeare’s Insults. A Pragmatic Dictionary, Nathalie Vienne-Guerrin, Bloomsbury Publishing, 2016

Why are certain words used as insults in Shakespeare’s world and what do these words do and say? Shakespeare’s plays abound with insults which are more often merely cited than thoroughly studied, quotation prevailing over exploration. The purpose of this richly detailed dictionary is to go beyond the surface of these words and to analyse why and how words become insults in Shakespeare’s world. It’s an invaluable resource and reference guide for anyone grappling with the complexities and rewards of Shakespeare’s inventive use of language in the realm of insult and verbal sparring.

sorcelleriePKReginald Scot, La sorcellerie démystifiée, introduction et notes de Pierre Kapitaniak, texte traduit de l’anglais par Pierre Kapitaniak et Jean Migrenne, éditions Jérôme Millon, 2015

L’esprit de Voltaire sous la toque de Calvin.
Près d’un siècle après le retentissant Marteau des sorcières (1486), une voix s’élève en Angleterre pour mettre un terme aux chasses aux sorcières qui ravagent l’Europe et qu’intensifie le brasier des guerres de religions allumé par le grand schisme de Luther. La sorcellerie démystifiée déconstruit le mythe de la sorcière toute puissante et de son pacte diabolique au moyen d’une analyse systématique des arguments avancés par l’auteur du Marteau et par son plus récent émule, Jean Bodin.
Traduite en français pour la première fois, cette charge virulente, à l’humour décapant, a gardé toute sa fraîcheur et l’approche empirique de Scot reste empreinte d’une modernité étonnante. « J’ai personnellement lu certaines de leurs conjurations sans jamais voir le moindre de leurs démons, sauf au théâtre », écrit-il à propos des magiciens et sorciers. Comble d’ironie, si pour lui «la vérité ne se mesure pas à l’aune du temps », sa démystification méthodique des rituels et incantations s’est retournée contre lui, ses lecteurs ayant tôt fait de transformer son plaidoyer en grimoire pour magiciens.

Cover Diasporas2Diaspora, Memory and Intimacy / Diaspora, la mémoire et l’intime. Edited by / Coordonné par Sarah Barbour, David Howard, Thomas Lacroix & Judith Misrahi-Barak, PULM, 2015.

Continuing the series on Diasporas, Cultures of Mobilities, ‘Race’, the second volume extends existing scholarship by exploring a range of multidisciplinary perspectives on the diasporic condition. Embodiment, memory and intimacy form three core themes through which the complexities of diasporic experiences are revealed and transmitted.
Closely aligned to these concerns, the impact of de-territorialisation, inherent in the processes of migration and re-settlement, forms a strong thread throughout the collected essays. Authors engage with individual and collective memorial processes embedded in the evolution of diasporic communities, exploring striking comparisons between diverse regions, states, cultures and linguistic zones. The intellectual and critical scope covered by this original collection of new essays is further reflected in the varied geographical origins of the contributors themselves.

Dans le cadre de la série « Diasporas, Cultures de la mobilité, ‘Race’ », ce deuxième volume se propose de compléter les études sur le sujet au travers de regards croisés et interdisciplinaires sur la condition diasporique. Les thèmes du corps, de la mémoire et de l’intime se tissent tout au long du recueil afin d’en révéler et d’en transmettre toute la complexité. Dans le même ordre d’idées, l’impact de la déterritorialisation, inhérent aux phénomènes de migration et relocalisation, est une autre optique majeure dans ce recueil d’essais. Les auteurs s’intéressent aux procédés mémoriels individuels et collectifs internes à l’évolution des communautés de diasporas, par d’étonnantes comparaisons entre diverses régions du monde, états et zones linguistiques. La teneur intellectuelle, la portée critique et la singularité de ce nouveau volume d’essais se reflètent aussi dans les origines géographiques variées de ses contributeurs.

9782753536081FS An Introduction to Anglophone Theatre, éd. Antonia Rigaud, Françoise Palleau-Papin, Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2015

Spanning four centuries, An Introduction to Anglophone Theatre brings together key notions and texts to accompany students in their exploration of both theatre and Anglophone culture. The book considers this theatrical tradition from the perspectives of the text, the stage and the audience in order to bring out the total experience of theatre. This introductory study gives its readers a sense of the historical development of English-speaking theatre from its origins in religious rituals and urban entertainments to the multimedia productions of today.
From Shakespeare to Tony Kushner, from Restoration comedy to today’s theatre of identity, the book’s chapters introduce readers to the themes and styles that have developed within this tradition. The authors have chosen key authors from the Anglophone literary scene whose works are presented along with a selected bibliography to help further research. Through in-depth studies, close-ups and a glossary of key terms, the book is a guide to plays of historical importance, to the cultural forces that have shaped theatre and to the changes the stage has undergone.

Avec des contributions de Marianne Drugeon et Agnès Lafont.
