A Tale Of Two Nations’ Histories The Application Of Literary Fairy Tales As A Firsthand Account Of History, Nicholas Gottlob 2020 Wayne State University

A Tale Of Two Nations’ Histories The Application Of Literary Fairy Tales As A Firsthand Account Of History, Nicholas Gottlob

Honors College Theses

Fairy tales are often thought to be solely for children as a means of education and entertainment. The literary fairy tale provided a medium that allowed authors to express their opinions under the guise of a story. This has not always been the case as literary fairy tales have been utilized as political instruments by authors and intended for a highly educated audience. Using fairy tales as a facade provided protection for authors, as outright criticisms against those in power usually resulted in dire consequences such as imprisonment or even death for the objector. The literary fairy tale provided a ...


Cambodian Family Albums: Tian's "L'Année Du Lièvre", Angelica P. So 2020 Emory University

Cambodian Family Albums: Tian's "L'Année Du Lièvre", Angelica P. So

Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal

This article explores how Franco-Cambodian cartoonist Tian’s graphic novel, L’année du lièvre [Year of the Rabbit], represents second-generation postmemory in the form of, what I call, a “Cambodian family album,” or a personal-collective archive. The album serves to convey to subsequent generations: 1) the history of the Cambodian genocide, 2) the collective memories of pre-1975 Cambodia preceding the Khmer Rouge takeover of Phnom Penh, and 3) the Cambodian humanitarian crisis and exodus of the 1970s-1990s. The conceptualization of the family album is derived from the literal translation, from Khmer into English, of the term “photo album” – “book designated ...

A Lyrical Comparison Of Suzanne And Its Translation, Natalie Sadler 2020 Georgia College

A Lyrical Comparison Of Suzanne And Its Translation, Natalie Sadler

The Corinthian

This paper compares Leonard Cohen’s song Suzanne and its French translation by Graeme Allwright. It takes translation principles into account, by relying on translator Antoine Berman’s “Twelve Deforming Tendencies of Translation.” In his reliance on the instrumental model, which tries to find equivalence and treat the translation as a reproduction of the original, Allwright’s translation misinterprets several important elements in the original, namely the relationship between the speaker and the Suzanne character. In Cohen’s original, the character Suzanne is expected to follow the speaker and is changed by his “superior” intellect, while in Allwright’s version ...


The Shadow Of Dante In French Renaissance Lyric: Scève's Délie, Alison Baird Lovell 2020 Saint Norbert College

The Shadow Of Dante In French Renaissance Lyric: Scève's Délie, Alison Baird Lovell

Research in Medieval and Early Modern Culture

This book presents an interpretation of Maurice Scève's lyric sequence Délie, object de plus haulte vertu (Lyon, 1544) in literary relation to the Vita nuova, Commedia, and other works of Dante Alighieri. Dante’s subtle influence on Scève is elucidated in depth for the first time, augmenting the evident allusions in Délie to the Canzoniere of Petrarch (Francesco Petrarca). Scève’s sequence of dense, epigrammatic dizains is considered to be an early example, prior to the Pléiade poets, of French Renaissance imitation of Petrarch's vernacular poetry, in a time when imitatio was an established literary practice, signifying the ...

Moralizing The Mass In The Butler Hours, Kathryn A. Smith 2020 New York University

Moralizing The Mass In The Butler Hours, Kathryn A. Smith

Manuscript Studies

This essay analyzes a group of prefatory pictures and texts in the English Butler Hours (Baltimore, Walters Art Museum MS W. 105), a richly illuminated, now fragmentary manuscript originally made c. 1340-50 for the Butler family of Wem and Oversley, Shropshire. Focusing first on the Tree of Vices, this essay elucidates that picture's apparent breadth of pictorial reference and offers the first transcriptions and translations of some of the Anglo-Norman French moralizing couplets that enrich its visual program. The essay then widens its focus, examining the visual-verbal "operations" of the Tree of Vices, its semantic relationships with other pictures ...


Le Texte, Le Terrarium Et Le Gaffophone, Antoine Paris 2020 Sorbonne Université/Université de Montréal

Le Texte, Le Terrarium Et Le Gaffophone, Antoine Paris

The Goose

Nous souhaitons proposer dans cet article une réflexion sur l'écriture des articles scientifiques, en défendant l'idée que les textes rendant compte de recherches doivent être considérés comme des textes à part entière, c'est-à-dire comme des environnements ayant leur propre cohérence, qui échappe en partie à leurs auteurs. En partant de cette hypothèse, nous adoptons pour notre propre article une forme qui donne une large part aux jeux d'échos entre des citations, issues de textes volontairement très différents.

Didactisation Du Texte Littéraire Selon L’Approche Actionnelle:Application Au Contexte Universtaire Libanais, Franceline Daher 2020 Ecole Doctorale / Sin - El Fil. Faculté des Lettres

Didactisation Du Texte Littéraire Selon L’Approche Actionnelle:Application Au Contexte Universtaire Libanais, Franceline Daher

Al Jinan الجنان

Notre volonté d’intégrer le texte littéraire dans les cours universitaires de français langue étrangère a permis de le didactiser selon la perspective actionnelle. Pour ce faire, nous avons élaboré un modèle didactique basé sur l’étude du roman » L’école de la guerre » d’Alexandre Najjar, un écrivain libanais d’expression française. Plusieurs activités langagières et artistiques ont été présentées avec succès par les étudiants dans le cadre d’une manifestation culturelle. Les résultats positifs de l’évaluation de ce projet montrent les prémisses d’un changement de représentation du texte littéraire.

L’Écriture De L’Inconscient Dans Les Désaxés(2004) Et Not Tobe(1991) Chez Christine Angot, Rana Faysal

Al Jinan الجنان

Cette étude consacrée à l’oeuvre de Christine Angot prend appui sur des questions renvoyant à un problème qui se partage l’espace littéraire : l’écriture de l’inconscient. Nous nousproposons d’aborder cette question à la lumière de la psychanalyse. Il s’agira moins d’étudier l’univers romanesque de l’auteur dans Les Désaxés et Not To Be, que d’éclairer, à travers la lecture de ces récits, certains problèmes relevant de la lecture psychanalytique en général

Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley 2020 Liberty University

Not Your Average Rose: Cultural Inversion In Pizan’S 'City Of Ladies', Alex Donley

Montview Liberty University Journal of Undergraduate Research

This research addresses Le Livre de la Cité des Dames—translated into English as The Book of the City of Ladies—as an outstanding work of proto-feminist literature from 1405. It is written by a woman, in defense of women. Christine de Pizan plays the central character in her own work, in which she combats misogyny with a revised account of history. She battles prevalent ideals of courtly love and gender inequality as things that are not merely repulsive or immoral, but wholly heretical. Rather than focusing on historical accuracy, de Pizan uses the literary power of her narrative to ...

Rewriting The Oeuvre: Raymond Queneau And The Art Of Translation, Christopher Clarke 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Rewriting The Oeuvre: Raymond Queneau And The Art Of Translation, Christopher Clarke

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

While the literary oeuvre of French author Raymond Queneau (1903-1976) has been extensively studied, his work as a literary translator has been largely overlooked. Queneau was a prominent member of the French literary avant-garde, but also a literary translator for two decades (1934-1953), and his writing was greatly influenced and impacted by his readings and translations of Anglophone writers. This dissertation provides insight into the role of translation in his conception of writing and language, and the inseparability of the different facets of his career as a writer, literary translator, and publisher. I examine his personal linguistic and literary history ...
