♥ Book Title : The Family Idiot
☯ Full Synopsis : "With this volume, the University of Chicago Press completes its translation of a work that is indispensable not only to serious readers of Flaubert but to anyone interested in the last major contribution by one of the twentieth century's greatest thinkers. That Sartre's study of Flaubert, The Family Idiot, is a towering achievement in intellectual history has never been disputed. Yet critics have argued about the precise nature of this novel or biography or "criticism-fiction" which is the summation of Sartre's philosophical, social, and literary thought. In the preface, Sartre writes: "The Family Idiot is the sequel to Search for a Method. The subject: what, at this point in time, can we know about a man? It seemed to me that this question could only be answered by studying a specific case." Sartre discusses Flaubert's personal development, his relationship to his family, his decision to become a writer, and the psychosomatic crisis or "conversion" from his father's domination to the freedom of his art. Sartre blends psychoanalysis with a sociological study of the ideology of the period, the crisis in literature, and Flaubert's influence on the future of literature. While Sartre never wrote the final volume he envisioned for this vast project, the existing volumes constitute in themselves a unified work—one that John Sturrock, writing in the Observer, called "a shatteringly fertile, digressive and ruthless interpretation of these few cardinal years in Flaubert's life." "A virtuoso perfomance. . . . For all that this book does to make one reconsider his life, The Family Idiot is less a case study of Flaubert than it is a final installment of Sartre's mythology. . . . The translator, Carol Cosman, has acquitted herself brilliantly."—Frederick Brown, New York Review of Books "A splendid translation by Carol Cosman. . . . Sartre called The Family Idiot a 'true novel,' and it does tell a story and eventually reach a shattering climax. The work can be described most simply as a dialectic, which shifts between two seemingly alternative interpretations of Flaubert's destiny: a psychoanalytic one, centered on his family and on his childhood, and a Marxist one, whose guiding themes are the status of the artist in Flaubert's period and the historical and ideological contradictions faced by his social class, the bourgeoisie."—Fredric Jameson, New York Times Book Review Jean-Paul Sartre (1906-1980) was offered, but declined, the Nobel Prize for literature in 1964. His many works of fiction, drama, and philosophy include the monumental study of Flaubert, The Family Idiot, and The Freud Scenario, both published in translation by the University of Chicago Press."Article| Jean-Paul Sartre| Statement ..."

Not indexed. Ikke illustreret. 1772 edition. Uddrag: ...beaux en Francois r ou a tous les etres qu'on appelleroit beaux en Hebreu, en Syriaque, en Arabe, env Chaldeen, en Grec, en Latin, en? Anglois, en Italien, & dans toutes les langues qui ont existe, qui existent, ou qui existeront? Et pour prouver que la notion de rapports est la feule qui resteroit apres remploi d'une regle d'exclusion ausli eten due, le Philosophe sera-t-il force de les apprendre toutes? ne lui iuffit-il pas d'avoir examine que l'acception du terme beau varie dans toutes les1 langues; qu'on le trouve applique la a une forte d'etres, a laquelle il ne s'applique point ici; mais qu'en quelque idiome qu'on en fasse usage, il suppose perception de rapports? Les Anglois disent a fine fiavour, a fine ivoman, une belle femme, une belle odeur. Ou en seroit un Philosophe An. glois, si ayant a traiter du beau, il voulbit avoir egard a cette bizarrerie de fa langue? C'est le peuple qui a fait les langues; c'est au Philosophe a decouvrir l'origine des choses; & il seroit assez surprenant que les principes de l'une ne se trouvassent pas souvent en Contradiction avec les usages de l'autre. Mais le principe de la perception des rapports, applique a la nature du beau, n'a pas meme ici ce desavantage; & il est si general, qu'il est difficile que quelque chose lui echappe. Chez tous les peuples, dans tous les lieux de la terre, & dans tous les temps, on a eu un nom pour la couleur en general, & d'autres noms pour les couleurs en particulier, & pour leurs nuances. Qu'auroit a faire un Philosophe a qui l'on proposeroit d'expliquer ce que c'est qu'une belle couleur?..."Article| Denis Diderot| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Kingdom
☯ Full Synopsis : "'The Kingdom, already a huge bestseller in France, is thrilling, magnificent and strange' Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times 'An utterly brilliant book' Catherine Nixey, The Times The sensational international bestseller from one of France's most fêted writers - an epic novel telling the story of Christianity as it has never been told before, and one man's crisis of faith. Corinth, ancient Greece, two thousand years ago. An itinerant preacher, poor, wracked by illness, tells the story of a prophet who was crucified in Judea, who came back from the dead, and whose return is a sign of something enormous. Like a contagion, the story will spread over the city, the country and, eventually, the world. Emmanuel Carrère's astonishing historical epic tells the story of the mysterious beginnings of Christianity, bringing to life a distant, primeval past of strange sects, apocalyptic beliefs and political turmoil. In doing so Carrère, once himself a fervent believer, questions his own faith, asks why we believe in resurrection, and what it means. The Kingdom is his masterpiece."Article| Emmanuel Carrère| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Dézafi
☯ Full Synopsis : "Dézafi is no ordinary zombie novel. In the hands of the great Haitian author known simply as Frankétienne, zombification takes on a symbolic dimension that stands as a potent commentary on a country haunted by a history of slavery. Now this dynamic new translation brings this touchstone in Haitian literature to English-language readers for the first time. Written in a provocative experimental style, with a myriad of voices and combining myth, poetry, allegory, magical realism, and social realism, Dézafi tells the tale of a plantation that is run and worked by zombies for the financial benefit of the living owner. The owner's daughter falls in love with the zombie overseer and facilitates his transformation back into fully human form, leading to a rebellion that challenges the oppressive imbalance that had robbed the workers of their spirit. With the walking dead and bloody cockfights (the "dézafi" of the title) as cultural metaphors for Haitian existence, Frankétienne's novel is ultimately a powerful allegory of political and social liberation."Article| Franketienne| Statement ..."
