"Some Things Grew No Less With Time:" Tracing Atu 510b From The Thirteenth To The Twentieth Century, Rachel L. Maynard 2017 East Tennessee State University

"Some Things Grew No Less With Time:" Tracing Atu 510b From The Thirteenth To The Twentieth Century, Rachel L. Maynard

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis provides a comparative analysis of seven different variants of the fairy tale commonly known as “Donkeyskin,” classified in the Aarne-Thompson-Uther folktale motif index as ATU 510B. By comparing so many different iterations of one fairy tale, it is easier to recognize the inherent attitudes concerning women and their place in society contained in this tale. Additionally, reading multiple variants from different centuries lends a perspective on the way that these attitudes changed over the centuries. Each of the thirteenth century texts considered end with their heroines trapped in loveless marriages, much like the seventeenth-century fairy tale, “Donkeyskin,” their ...

God, Nature, And Man In Justine, Kayley R. Roberson 2017 Georgia College

God, Nature, And Man In Justine, Kayley R. Roberson

Georgia College Student Research Events

In the French Enlightenment writer the Marquis de Sade’s best-known novel, Justine, issues surrounding God, nature, and humankind pose significant problems for the protagonist of the story. Sade’s materialist philosophical work affirms his belief that nature is the most influential factor in the lives of humans and that God does not exist. Sade states that violence, immorality, and vice derive from nature and exist as the basic instincts of man. He argues that these temptations must be praised rather than forbidden. While Justine, the virtuous title character, faces corruption at every turn, she refuses to concede victory to ...

La Douleur D'Être Et La Lourdeur Du Temps: Une Lecture Existentialiste De Trois Jours Et Le Néant De Youssef Wahboun, Gilbert Ndi Shang 2017 Université de Bayreuth

La Douleur D'Être Et La Lourdeur Du Temps: Une Lecture Existentialiste De Trois Jours Et Le Néant De Youssef Wahboun, Gilbert Ndi Shang

Mouvances Francophones

Cet article aborde la question de l’existentialisme dans Trois jours et le néant de l’écrivain marocain Youssef Wahboun. Le roman opère une diagnose complexe des conditions sociales des personnages tirés du contexte marocain actuel, ce qui lui accorde sa pertinence comme discours sur le social de cet espace précis. Néanmoins, le présent article repose sur le postulat que, par l’usage d’un langage imbu de multiples paliers de significations, le roman délocalise l’horizon de son imaginaire, poussant ainsi sa signification au-delà de la frontière nationale. C’est un roman qui traite de la complexité de la ...


Twenty-First Century Representations Of Albert Camus’S “L’Hôte”, Roland R. Buchta 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Twenty-First Century Representations Of Albert Camus’S “L’Hôte”, Roland R. Buchta

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

Albert Camus, an Algerian-born French writer, philosopher, and winner of the 1957 Nobel Prize in literature, had a significant impact on 20th-century world literature and philosophical thought. Even today, Camus’s essays, novels, plays, and short stories remain relevant and compelling. More recent adaptations of his work incorporate such important themes as the meaning of life and death, French colonialism and practices, and basic human rights. This presentation examines the short story L’Hôte (Eng. The Guest) (1957) from Camus’s the Exile and the Kingdom collection, as well as the graphic novel L’Hôte (2009) by Jacques ...

Whatever Became Of ‘Génération Mitterrand’? Virginie Despentes’S Vernon Subutex, Michele Schaal 2017 Iowa State University

Whatever Became Of ‘Génération Mitterrand’? Virginie Despentes’S Vernon Subutex, Michele Schaal

World Languages and Cultures Publications

The first two volumes of Virginie Despentes's trilogy, Vernon Subutex (2015), offer an assessment of the "Generation Mitterrand" and those born during Franyois Mitterrand's presidency (1981- 95). Drawing on sociological and historical studies, this article argues that Vernon Subutex charts the contemporary consequences of the neoliberal turn taken during Mitterrand's era. This socioeconomic context significantly impacted the characters' identities and life paths: while some have benefited from class privileges, others have fallen down the social ladder. As for the younger generation, it has internalized the rules of the neoliberal system.
