Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher 2010 Technological University Dublin

Franco-Irish Connections: Essays, Memoirs And Poems In Honour Of Pierre Joannon : Review, Eamon Maher

Articles

The name Pierre Joannon is synonymous with Irish studies and with Franco-Irish relations. I can think of few, if any, people who are more worthy recipients of this beautifully presented Festschrift than the Honorary French Irish Consul, scholar and former President of the Ireland Fund de France. You get some idea of his stature from the list of contributors to this book: two former Taoisigh, Garret FitzGerald and John Bruton, two Nobel Laureates, John Hume and Seamus Heaney, poets Brendan Kennelly and John Montague, a host of historians including Dermot Keogh, Joe Lee, Eunan O’Halpin and Kevin Whelan, distinguished intellectuals …


La Rhétorique De La Persuasion Dans Le Penser De Royal Mémoire De Guillaume Michel, Dit De Tours, Lidia Radi 2010 University of Richmond

La Rhétorique De La Persuasion Dans Le Penser De Royal Mémoire De Guillaume Michel, Dit De Tours, Lidia Radi

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

En 1518, chez Jehan de la Garde et Pierre le Brodeur, paraît un recueil ayant pour titre Le Penser de Royal Mémoire, composé d´une douzaine de pièces dont la plupart sont des épîtres. La taille de chacune de ces compositions varie selon son propos, et aussi selon la fonction qu´elle remplit dans la structure de l´oeuvre. Chaque pièce a un caractère à la fois didactique et épidictique. La plupart sont adressées au jeune roi François 1er, pour l´inciter à se lancer dans la croisade proclamée par le pape Léon X, avec qui il signe un nouveau Concordat2 …


À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers 2010 University of Richmond

À La Recherche Du «Bourgeois»: Drame Sérieux Et Tentations Narratives Chez Diderot, Olivier M. Delers

Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Faculty Publications

Dans le drame bourgeois de Diderot, il n'y a pas de « bourgeois». Pas de personnages bourgeois (par exemple, pas de M. Jourdain ou de Turcaret dans le rôle du bourgeois à ridiculiser), pas de valeurs bourgeoises (qui sont après tout une invention du XIXe siècle), pas d'esprit de groupe bourgeois - de conscience de classe - qui unirait et distinguerait les protagonistes du Fils naturel (1757) et du Pere de famille (1758). Béatrice Didier, dans son Diderot dramaturge du vivant, remarque ce flottement conceptuel sans pour autant s'en distancer : « il s'agit de représenter la vie …


Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan 2010 Illinois Wesleyan University

Thibaut De Champagne And Disputed Attributions: The Case Of Mss Bern, Burgerbibliothek 389 (C) And Paris, Bnf Fr. 1591(R), Christopher Callahan

Scholarship

This essay examines the manuscript context of the songs of Thibaut de Champagne that were either marginalized in or excluded from A. Wallensköld’s 1925 edition. An evaluation of the placement and ordering of Thibaut’s songs in the codices, as well as their rubrics and melodies, affords an understanding of the construction of these chansonniers, obscured through decades of reliance on print editions. A rapid scrutiny of these linguistically (C) and musically (R) marginal manuscripts both reveals how little we know about the transmission of trouvère lyric and underscores the importance of a material-philological approach for all future editions of the …

Acquisition And Solidifcation Of Grammar And Vocabulary In Elementary French Classrooms Through Skit Performance, Jill Owen 2010 Western Kentucky University

Acquisition And Solidifcation Of Grammar And Vocabulary In Elementary French Classrooms Through Skit Performance, Jill Owen

Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

In this study, groups of elementary French students in two classes at Western Kentucky University utilized two different methods of skit performance to demonstrate the importance of communicative activities in the foreign language classroom. The effectiveness of each method was assessed to determine which method helped the students acquire grammar and vocabulary concepts more readily. One method was to have students write their own skits using a chapter in their textbook. The other method was to give students an outline that they filled in and memorized. Surveys and quizzes were used to gather data. The results of which method proved …

Ionesco’S Rhinocéros And The Menippean Tradition, Preston Fambrough 2010 Baker University

Ionesco’S Rhinocéros And The Menippean Tradition, Preston Fambrough

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Mikhail Bakhtin argues that Menippean satire, one of the two serio-comic genres of classical antiquity from which the carnivalesque strain in Western literature derives, continues its development in modern times in the “fantastic story” and the “philosophical fairy tale.” This modern form of the menippea is characterized by the presence of the grotesque, the use of the fantastic for philosophical purposes, the crowning of a (wise) fool or jester as carnival king, and “a sense of the gay relativity of prevailing truths and authorities” (Rabelais 11) which informs all carnivalized literature. A genre of “ultimate questions of worldview,” it …


Writers, Rebels, And Cannibals: Léonora Miano’S Rendering Of Africa In L’Intérieur De La Nuit, Magali Compan 2010 College of William and Mary

Writers, Rebels, And Cannibals: Léonora Miano’S Rendering Of Africa In L’Intérieur De La Nuit, Magali Compan

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Léonora Miano’s first novel L’Intérieur de la nuit received a laudatory critical reception when it was published by the French publishing house Plon in 2005. The novel’s depiction of an act of cannibalism in a village of a fictional African nation provides the turning point and central event of the narrative. The novel’s cannibalism has also been central to its critical reception in the west. While many Francophone works have employed and developed the metaphor of the act of cannibalism, Miano “cannibalizes” in her novel in unique ways that prove simultaneously problematic and productively revealing.

Caligula-Christ: Preliminary Study Of A Parallel, Lorene M. Birden 2010 Institut Universitaire de Technologie de Dijon

Caligula-Christ: Preliminary Study Of A Parallel, Lorene M. Birden

Studies in 20th & 21st Century Literature

Caligula, at the very beginning of the Albert Camus play, conceives a very ambitious project; to surpass the gods and take their place in his empire, in order to decree impossibility. Camus has, however, gone a step further in developing the god-image of his main character through the incorporation of much Christian imagery into the scenes. This aspect of the play seems not to have been noticed by Camus scholars; there is no in-depth study of the use of this imagery. However, Camus scholar Patricia Johnson and the members of the Société des études camusiennes have noted the usefulness of …

Excerpt: "Hélène Cixous is a highly prolific Francophone theorist, poet, novelist, playwright, philosopher, and literary critic: indeed, she is a writer whose work resists easy categorization. Although the majority of her publications are works of experimental fiction, she is most widely known in the English-speaking world for her contributions to French feminist and literary theory and for formulating the concept of écriture feminine, or feminine writing."

Stereotype And Representation Of Near And Middle Eastern Peoples In La Bande Dessinee, Brandon Matthew Thomas 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Stereotype And Representation Of Near And Middle Eastern Peoples In La Bande Dessinee, Brandon Matthew Thomas

LSU Master's Theses

Representation of social groups in the comics is serious. In 2006, a series of twelve cartoons published in a Danish newspaper sparked a controversy that precipitated the deaths of hundreds of people. The images depicted Mohammed and other images that supposedly mocked Islam. All across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa protesters paraded through the streets, some calling for the death of the cartoonists. Trials in Europe over the publication of these cartoons resulted in several firings. Counter protests have also arisen. These protesters found grievance with the firings, claiming that the freedom of the press was being violated …
