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 ...

Precarious Provenance: Legitimacy, Surrogacy And Betrayal In The Value Of Art And Family In Honoré De Balzac's Le Cousin Pons And Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, Ryan Coburn 2017 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Precarious Provenance: Legitimacy, Surrogacy And Betrayal In The Value Of Art And Family In Honoré De Balzac's Le Cousin Pons And Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, Ryan Coburn

Masters Theses May 2014 - current

This thesis focuses on the problematic nature of art valuation, more specifically concerning the ideas of use-value and exchange-value in Honoré de Balzac’s Le Cousin Pons and Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch. Written in nineteenth-century France, Balzac’s novel paints a bleak portrait of what he believes to be a morally corrupt society obsessed with the lesser things in life such as money and status rather than what is truly important: culture and art. In her novel, which bears a striking resemblance to Balzac’s, Tartt presents her perception of present-day United States, also plagued with moral corruption and ...

A Space Of Resistance: Madame Duclos And Her Counter-Narrative In The 120 Days Of Sodom (1785), Valentina Denzel

Le Monde français du dix-huitième siècle

This article aims to challenge the common critique of Sade’s misogyny by focusing on the polyphonic discourses in his works. Echoing Stéphanie Genand’s critique that Sade’s oeuvre does not inscribe itself in an act of claiming rights, but in the portrayal of complex identities (2013: 14), this article examines how the multiplicity of voices in Sade’s writings allows for a more nuanced reading and a better understanding of the author (2013: 15)1. Although it would be wrong to define Sade as a feminist, it is safe to say that his complex female characters embody feminist ...
