Thématiques Dans Les Récits Des Enfants Cachés Dans L'Univers Catholique En France, Carmen P. McCarron 2014 The University of Western Ontario

Thématiques Dans Les Récits Des Enfants Cachés Dans L'Univers Catholique En France, Carmen P. Mccarron

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Cette thèse examine des thématiques communes à une vingtaine de récits publiés en français par des enfants de la Shoah qui ont été cachés dans des familles et des institutions catholiques, surtout en France. La bibliographie étendue de l’Institut de recherche sur la littérature de l’Holocauste nous a donné la possibilité de rassembler et d’étudier ces textes en un corpus cohérent, pour la première fois. Nous lisons les récits dans une perspective pluridisciplinaire, tout en les situant selon l'histoire sociale, afin de relever les préoccupations centrales des enfants juifs lorsqu’ils prennent la décision délicate de ...


Sade Au Bûcher. Lire, Dire Et Penser La Transgression À La Lumière Des Supplices, Dominic Marion 2014 The University of Western Ontario

Sade Au Bûcher. Lire, Dire Et Penser La Transgression À La Lumière Des Supplices, Dominic Marion

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

La problématique de cette thèse s’ancre dans un constat : après avoir scandalisé le public pendant deux siècles, la figure de Sade paraît aujourd'hui bien intégrée à la circulation des marchandises. Notre premier chapitre cherche à aborder ce renversement en fonction du contraste qui sépare la réception initiale de Sade à la fin du XVIIIe siècle de sa canonisation dans la prestigieuse collection « Bibliothèque de la Pléiade » à la fin du XXe siècle. Cette thèse se structure selon deux parcours diachroniques présentés l’un à la suite de l’autre. S’échelonnant sur les chapitres deux à ...

Natural Disaster: Representation, Spectatorship, And Loss In The Flood Stories L’Inondation, Trouble The Water, And Low And Behold, Juliana Starr 2014 University of New Orleans

Natural Disaster: Representation, Spectatorship, And Loss In The Flood Stories L’Inondation, Trouble The Water, And Low And Behold, Juliana Starr

Foreign Languages Faculty Publications

Publié cinq ans avant le célèbre roman Germinal, la nouvelle moins connue L’Inondation (1880), dans laquelle le je-narrateur observe du haut d’un toit l’inondation de la Garonne qui eut lieu en 1875, résonne de manière particulièrement significative aujourd’hui chez les habitants des côtes de la Louisiane et du Mississipi, en raison de sa ressemblance frappante avec quelques-uns des récits filmographiques de l’inondation castastrophique provoquée par l’ouragan Katrina en 2005. L’un de ces films est le documentaire Trouble the Water (2008), dans lequel la rappeuse en herbe Kimberly Roberts dirige son caméscope de vingt ...

Patrick Modiano's La Place De L'Etoile: Why Name A Narrator "Raphael Schlemilovitch"?, Charles O'Keefe 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Patrick Modiano's La Place De L'Etoile: Why Name A Narrator "Raphael Schlemilovitch"?, Charles O'Keefe

Literary Onomastics Studies

Patrick Modiano's La Place de l'Etoile invites attention on at least two accounts. First, its appearance in 1968 marked an event in French publishing history, since Modiano used this, his first major work, to storm the French literary establishment as a mere twenty-year-old. Second, the book, a first-person narrative, is suffused by the theme of movement, a theme of no little critical interest: on the one hand it is as venerable as Odysseus' voyages and the wanderings of the Israelites; on the other, it is as contemporary as our distinctively twentieth-century art form, the cinema, the essence of ...


The Seven Wonders And The Seven Hills In Du Bellay's Les Antiquitez De Rome, Betty J. Davis 2014 Brooklyn College, City University of New York

The Seven Wonders And The Seven Hills In Du Bellay's Les Antiquitez De Rome, Betty J. Davis

Literary Onomastics Studies

Seven is a magic number. According to Genesis, God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. We have the seven sacraments,1 the Seven Deadly Sins,2 the Seven Seas, the Seven Against Thebes,3 the Seven Sages or Seven Wise Men of antiquity,4 and the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus.5 We have a constellation of seven stars known as the Pleiades,6 whose name was adopted by seven poets in ancient Alexandria7 and later by seven young poets in the French Renaissance, who called themselves the Pleiade.8 Among these was Joachim Du ...


"It's All In The Name": Amorous Vision And Poetic Creativity In Ronsard's Sonets Pour Helene, Donald Gilman 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

"It's All In The Name": Amorous Vision And Poetic Creativity In Ronsard's Sonets Pour Helene, Donald Gilman

Literary Onomastics Studies

The opening paragraph of the article follows:

In his final sonnet sequence, Pierre de Ronsard unites his vision of love with his search for poetic creativity. As a poet of love, he describes the turbulence of amorous experience throughout his personal verse and, like Petrarch and his followers, details the disquiet and disappointment of unrequited love. By centering attention on his use of Petrarchism as a poetic idiom, Desonay, Stone, Gendre, and Castor have studied Ronsard’s imitation of Petrarch’s conception and expression of love and have traced a progression from an innovation handling of conventional tropes and techniques ...
