Books Description:

De nos jours, alors que la promotion de l'humanité est saluée comme la valeur essentielle de la philosophie, la tragédie grecque, donc L'OEdipe-Roi de Sophocle, est souvent invoquée comme une source privilégiée. Mais, ne serait-ce pas un déni de vérité ? Le texte et le contexte de cette tragédie ne disent-ils pas explicitement que ce qui intronise ce roi-connaissant suffisant au trône de son père, et ce qui le pousse à nouer une relation incestueuse avec sa mère, est dénoncé comme le crime originel contre l'humanité ? Ainsi, relire L'OEdipe-Roi de l'Ancien Sophocle en pensant le rejet du message de cette tragédie au cours de la tradition de notre culture occidentale, c'est repenser le défi de la pensée tragique dont le message touche à l'essence et à la dignité de tout être humain.

Books Description:

Ce livre se propose de montrer comment, dans le chef-d'oeuvre de Sophocle, OEdipe-Roi, l'homme se trouve au coeur d'une problématique existentielle, celle de la crise des valeurs. Le rationalisme naissant qui a marqué de ses empreintes presque tous les domaines n'a pas manqué de déstabiliser le triangle relationnel sur lequel reposent tous les besoins et aspirations de la condition humaine : relations de l'homme avec lui-même, relations de l'homme avec son semblable, relations de l'homme avec le divin. Toute la société oedipienne vit au rythme de ce déséquilibre qui s'exprime à travers la crise des valeurs religieuses, sociales et morales.

Wrong-Doing, Truth-Telling

Author:Michel Foucault

Books Description:

Three years before his death, Michel Foucault delivered a series of lectures at the Catholic University of Louvain that until recently remained almost unknown. These lectures—which focus on the role of avowal, or confession, in the determination of truth and justice—provide the missing link between Foucault’s early work on madness, delinquency, and sexuality and his later explorations of subjectivity in Greek and Roman antiquity. Ranging broadly from Homer to the twentieth century, Foucault traces the early use of truth-telling in ancient Greece and follows it through to practices of self-examination in monastic times. By the nineteenth century, the avowal of wrongdoing was no longer sufficient to satisfy the call for justice; there remained the question of who the “criminal” was and what formative factors contributed to his wrong-doing. The call for psychiatric expertise marked the birth of the discipline of psychiatry in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as well as its widespread recognition as the foundation of criminology and modern criminal justice. Published here for the first time, the 1981 lectures have been superbly translated by Stephen W. Sawyer and expertly edited and extensively annotated by Fabienne Brion and Bernard E. Harcourt. They are accompanied by two contemporaneous interviews with Foucault in which he elaborates on a number of the key themes. An essential companion to Discipline and Punish, Wrong-Doing, Truth-Telling will take its place as one of the most significant works of Foucault to appear in decades, and will be necessary reading for all those interested in his thought.

Books Description:

Sophocles: The Classical Heritage, first published in 1996, contains a diverse collection of reflection, ranging from the 16th century to the 20th, on one of the three great Attic tragedians, the author of perhaps the most famous play of all time. With the entire notion of ‘Western culture’ under duress, the need to establish continuity from antiquity to modernity is as pressing as ever. Each essay, selected by Professor Dawe, explores a theme or concept derived from the tragic vision of the Sophoclean universe which is still of relevance today. An enormous range of topics is investigated, in a variety of modes and styles: the linguistic challenges of translation, the psychology of Sigmund Freud, Enlightenment critiques, the history of performance conventions, dramatic structure and technique, and issues facing the modern director. Overall, Professor Dawe offers a staggering selection of responses, which cumulatively demonstrate the continuing importance and fascination of Sophocles’ legacy.

Books Description:

Dans Le parent insaisissable et l'urgence d'écrire , Martine Delfos étudie la relation entre la perte prématurée d'un parent pendant la jeunesse des écrivains français et leur écriture. La perte prématurée d'un parent au cours de l'enfance ou de l'adolescence peut mener à la dépression, tout comme elle peut faire naître un grand fanatisme. Elle peut également faire éclore de grands talents littéraires. Dans sa recherche des écrivains français de 1550 à 1950, Martine Delfos à découvert que les trois quarts de ces écrivains ont subi la perte d'un père ou d'une mère pendant leur jeunesse. Pour presque les deux tiers, c'est une perte due à la mort d'un ou même des deux parents. La perte semble amener un grand fanatisme littéraire, une urgence d'écrire. Ce sujet n'a jamais été étudié chez les écrivains, ni chez les écrivains français ni non plus chez d'autres écrivains. Etant donnée l'ampleur des résultats, Martine Delfos suppose avoir à faire à un phénomène universel. C'est-à-dire qu'on peut s'attendre à un même résultat chez les écrivains néerlandais ou anglais par exemple. Ce qui frappe, c'est que cette perte survient souvent quand l'écrivain a sept ans. Cette donnée peut s'expliquer par le fait que le grand chagrin qui cherche à s'exprimer coïncide avec le moment où l'enfant fait connaissance avec un nouveau moyen d'expression: l'écriture. Pour étudier les traces d'une perte prématurée d'un parent dans l'oeuvre d'un écrivain, Martine Delfos a étudié l'oeuvre de quatre écrivains: Racine, Voltaire, Rimbaud en Zola. Il s'avère qu'il existe en effet des traces de la perte dans le sens que la représentation du parent décédé est sous-développée dans l'écriture. La perspective de la perte prématurée crée, en plus, la possibilité de jeter une toute nouvelle lumière sur deux énigmes importantes de la littérature française, c'est-à-dire le silence soudain de Racine et de Rimbaud.

Comment enseigner à bien comprendre les textes avant de les traduire ? Comment convient-il d’évaluer les traductions ? La puissance d’Internet peut-elle être mise au service de l’enseignement de la traduction ? Quel métalangage utilise-t-on dans les cours de traduction ? Pourquoi est-il important d’inculquer aux étudiants des habitudes dénominatives ? L’introspection à haute voix (think-aloud protocols) peut-elle contribuer à améliorer la pédagogie de la traduction ? Autant de questions qui trouvent dans ce collectif des éléments de réponse propres à faire progresser la pédagogie de la traduction à stimuler la recherche.

Books Description:

By imaginatively recreating the play's original staging and debunking the interpretations of various critics, including Aristotle, Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff, E.R. Dodds, Frederick Ahl, and John Peradotto, Griffith shows that Apollo is a constant, powerful presence throughout the play. He contends that although we can sympathize with Oedipus because of his sufferings, he is still morally responsible for murdering his father and sleeping with his mother. Apollo is therefore not indifferent and his actions are not unjust. Griffith focuses on Apollo's commandment "know thyself," a commandment Oedipus belatedly and tragically fulfils, to stress both the need for self-understanding in the study of ancient literature and the usefulness of ancient literature in achieving self-understanding.

Books Description:

In Romantic Drama, three dozen comparatists join forces for a supranational, crosscultural reexamination of the deep paradigm shifts appearing around the start of the nineteenth century which revolutionized drama as a literary art within the enormous civilization constituted by Europe and her overseas extensions. Romantic pronouncements on the canon and poetics of drama, the symptomatic subject-matters treated by Romantic playwrights, the structural means by which they expressed their view of the world, and regional peculiarities are illuminated from multiple perspectives. The volume aspires to skirt the pitfalls of simplistic genetic or teleological thinking. It does not treat Romanticism as a limited “period” dominated by some construed singular master-ethos or dialectic; rather, it follows the literary patterns and dynamics of Romanticism as a flow of interactive currents across geocultural frontiers. Finally, this involves recognizing the Romantic heritage in literary phenomena reaching into our own times. Thus the Romantic celebration of imagination, creation of a theater of the mind, experience of intertextuality, dissolving of generic boundaries, and embrace of “myth” as a challenge to older “history” figure among the important topics, as do Romantic foreshadowings of Symbolist, Existentialist, and Absurdist drama. SPECIAL OFFER: 30% discount for a complete set order (5 vols.).The Romanticism series in the Comparative History of Literatures in European Languages is the result of a remarkable international collaboration. The editorial team coordinated the efforts of over 100 experts from more than two dozen countries to produce five independently conceived, yet interrelated volumes that show not only how Romanticism developed and spread in its principal European homelands and throughout the New World, but also the ways in which the affected literatures in reaction to Romanticism have redefined themselves on into Modernism. A glance at the index of each volume quickly reveals the extraordinary richness of the series’ total contents. Romantic Irony sets the broader experimental parameters of comparison by concentrating on the myriad expressions of “irony” as one of the major impulses in the Romantic philosophical and artistic revolution, and by combining cross-cultural and interdisciplinary studies with special attention also to literatures in less widely diffused language streams. Romantic Drama traces creative innovations that deeply altered the understanding of genre at large, fed popular imagination through vehicles like the opera, and laid the foundations for a modernist theater of the absurd. Romantic Poetry demonstrates deep patterns and a sharing of crucial themes of the revolutionary age which underlie the lyrical expression that flourished in so many languages and environments. Nonfictional Romantic Prose assists us in coping with the vast array of writings from the personal and intimate sphere to modes of public discourse, including Romanticism’s own self-commentary in theoretical statements on the arts, society, life, the sciences, and more. Nor are the discursive dimensions of imaginative literature neglected in the closing volume, Romantic Prose Fiction, where the basic Romantic themes and story types (the romance, novel, novella, short story, and other narrative forms) are considered throughout Europe and the New World. This enormous realm is seen not just in terms of Romantic theorizing, but in the light of the impact of Romantic ideas and narration on later generations. As an aid to readers, the introduction to Romantic Prose Fiction explains the relationships among the volumes in the series and carries a listing of their tables of contents in an appendix. No other series exists comparable to these volumes which treat the entirety of Romanticism as a cultural happening across the whole breadth of the “Old” and “New” Worlds and thus render a complex picture of European spiritual strivings in the late eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries, a heritage still very close to our age.
