Book Summary: En 1998, Les Cahiers Albert Cohen (n° 8) faisaient paraître un « numéro anniversaire » pour les trente ans de Belle du Seigneur. Pour saluer les cinquante ans du chef-d'oeuvre, ce numéro des Cahiers publie une série d'études sous l'intitulé « nouvelles approches ». Certaines complètent, prolongent et enrichissent des recherches entamées depuis longtemps sur des dimensions cardinales de l'oeuvre (la violence et le sacré, l'imaginaire sexuel, l'intertextualité, l'humour, l'ironie, le lexique de l'amour ou la poétique des incipit), d'autres explorent des thèmes inédits (l'ennui, la figure du pervers narcissique, la mimicry des études postcoloniales) ou risquent des hypothèses nouvelles (faut-il postuler un « narrateur » dans Belle du Seigneur ?). Contributions de Carole Auroy, Baptiste Bohet, Jérome Cabot, Valeria Dei, Marc Hersant, Antonia Maestrali, Anne-Marie Paillet, Alain Schaffner, Anaëlle Touboul, Joëlle Zagury...

Book Summary: Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother’s death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for La France libre, which later grew into Book of My Mother. Achingly honest, intimate, and moving, this love song is a tribute to all mothers. Cohen himself expressed, "I shall not have written in vain if one of you, after reading my hymn of death, is one evening gentler with his mother because of me and my mother." From the Trade Paperback edition.

As long-buried memories begin to surface, she and Remy wonder what they really saw.

Book Summary: E. M. Delafield's largely autobiographical novel takes the form of a journal written by an upper-middle-class lady living in a Devonshire village. Written with humour, this charming novel is full of the peculiarities of daily life. The Provincial Lady of the title attempts to avoid disaster and prevent chaos from descending upon her household. But with a husband reluctant to do anything but doze behind The Times, mischievous children and trying servants, it's a challenge keeping up appearances on an inadequate income, particularly in front of the infuriating and haughty Lady Boxe. As witty and delightful today as when it was first published in 1930, Diary of a Provincial Lady is a brilliantly observed comic novel and an acknowledged classic. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition features an introduction by author and journalist Christina Hardyment. Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift-editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

Book Summary: The unforgettable memoir of 70 years of contemporary and personal history from the great French filmmaker, journalist and intellectual Claude LanzmannBorn to a Jewish family in Paris, 1925, Lanzmann's first encounter with radicalism was as part of the Resistance during the Nazi occupation. He and his father were soldiers of the underground until the end of the war, smuggling arms and making raids on the German army. After the liberation of France, he studied philosophy at the Sorbonne, making money as a student in surprising ways (by dressing as a priest and collecting donations, and stealing philosophy books from bookshops). It was in Paris however, that he met Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. It was a life-changing meeting. The young man began an affair with the older de Beauvoir that would last for seven years. He became the editor of Sartre's political-literary journal, Les Temps Modernes—a position which he holds to this day—and came to know the most important literary and philosophical figures of postwar France. And all this before he was 30 years old. Written in precise, rich prose of rare beauty, organized—like human recollection itself—in interconnected fragments that eschew conventional chronology, and describing in detail the making of his seminal film Shoah, The Patagonian Hare becomes a work of art, more significant, more ambitious than mere memoir. In it, Lanzmann has created a love song to life balanced by the eye of a true auteur.

Book Summary: Le lecteur d'Albert Cohen est assez vite frappé par la multiplicité des références à la folie dans l'oeuvre. Pathologies diverses, folie prophétique du personnage principal, folie amoureuse, folie du monde, lyrisme échevelé et goût oriental de la grandeur et du travestissement : la folie est partout. Cohen, lui-même lecteur et admirateur de Freud, se livre à une psychopathologie de la vie quotidienne de ses personnages et nous conduit de l'appréhension clinique des comportements (narcissisme, mégalomanie, délire de persécution, scarifications, pulsions suicidaires) à une vision plus symbolique de la folie, carnavalesque au sens de Bakhtine ou prophétique au sens de Neher. Les articles qui composent cet important dossier (C. Stolz, B. Bohet, D. Poizat, M. Decout, M. Davies, A. Jean, C. Quint, A. Schaffner), nous invitent à une promenade dans les différents aspects de ce motif récurrent dans l’oeuvre, mais jamais exploré en tant que tel. Ce numéro comporte également une étude sur « Cohen et les moralistes » (C. Brochard) et sur les rapports entre « Corps et société » dans son oeuvre (G. Dolléans).

Book Summary: Tout lecteur d'Albert Cohen est d'abord plein de ces évocations saisissantes de l'antagonisme radical entre « la Loi » et « la nature » dont l'auteur semble avoir fait le socle de sa vision du monde : « [...]C'est notre héroïsme désespéré que de ne vouloir pas être ce que nous sommes et c'est-à-dire des bêtes soumises aux règles de la nature que de vouloir être ce que nous ne sommes pas et c'est-à-dire des hommes. » Quel est le soubassement de cette vision du monde ? Est-il à chercher dans le judaïsme dont Cohen se réclame ou dans une pente quasi gnostique, comme le soutient Jack Abecassis ? Comment se traduit-elle poétiquement ? Que vient-elle signifier politiquement et philosophiquement ? Que trahit-elle de l'imaginaire de l'écrivain, de son rapport à la nature, au corps, à la femme ? Comment l'aversion déclarée pour l'animalité peutelle s'accorder avec les mille et une preuves de l'intérêt, sinon de l'amour, de l'écrivain pour les « bêtes » ? Car ouvrir l'oeuvre de Cohen, c'est découvrir une incroyable faune, dans laquelle les animaux ne sont pas toujours des repoussoirs allégoriques : des chattes aux termites, des chevaux de retour aux félins - miniaturisés ou non -, des langoustes d'Ariane aux araignées adultères, des aigles aux crapauds, en passant par les grosses mouches noires et jusqu'au chien auquel Solal envisage un moment de faire sa déclaration d'amour, le bestiaire de l'écrivain semble inépuisable.

Model Reduction and Approximation

ISBN10 : 1611974828

Publisher : SIAM

Number of Pages : 412

Category : Science

Book Summary: Many physical, chemical, biomedical, and technical processes can be described by partial differential equations or dynamical systems. In spite of increasing computational capacities, many problems are of such high complexity that they are solvable only with severe simplifications, and the design of efficient numerical schemes remains a central research challenge. This book presents a tutorial introduction to recent developments in mathematical methods for model reduction and approximation of complex systems. Model Reduction and Approximation: Theory and Algorithms contains three parts that cover (I) sampling-based methods, such as the reduced basis method and proper orthogonal decomposition, (II) approximation of high-dimensional problems by low-rank tensor techniques, and (III) system-theoretic methods, such as balanced truncation, interpolatory methods, and the Loewner framework. It is tutorial in nature, giving an accessible introduction to state-of-the-art model reduction and approximation methods. It also covers a wide range of methods drawn from typically distinct communities (sampling based, tensor based, system-theoretic).?? This book is intended for researchers interested in model reduction and approximation, particularly graduate students and young researchers.

Book Summary: The story of Dany Laferriere, the narrator and writer living in exile in Montreal, who finally comes home to Haiti. Nothing is different, and yet everything has changed. There is his mother, who has never left Haiti, not even for one minute, and who still performs all the rituals of old. But there is also the army of zombies that takes over the streets at night, while the American army occupies the country by day. What is this country of dead men? Is every Haitian a secret citizen? Is it possible for Laferriere to cross over to that country and then return? Laferriere wanders through Port-au-Prince interrogating old friends and new acquaintances. The tone becomes strident, as do the questions: Do we stay? Do we leave? What's the point? Where can we be ourselves and live like humans at the same time? In the end Laferriere decides to head for Bombardopolis, a village where you only need to eat once every three months -- a way of curing hunger? What will become of him once he gets there, and who will he be when he returns?

Book Summary: Au nom d’Albert Cohen est attachée l’image d’une œuvre inclassable, qui échappe à toutes nos normes, qui bouscule nos habitudes de lecteur. Radicalité comique, lyrique, polémique : on trouve là une façon souveraine et absolument inattendue de renouveler le genre romanesque. Si l’écrivain a affirmé avoir cessé de lire dans la trentaine, son œuvre est pourtant marquée par ce qui pourrait tenir lieu d’une lutte avec et contre la littérature. Car ses textes regorgent d’allusions, de citations, de parodies, de pastiches, de réécritures parfois dissimulées, parfois affichées, où l’écriture se questionne elle-même dans le miroir de celle des autres. Les études réunies ici auscultent les nombreuses facettes de ce rapport avec la littérature, questionnent le rôle des modèles et contre-modèles, des influences et des inspirations, qui déterminent la manière inédite dont Cohen construit tant son esthétique qu’une éthique de la littérature.

Paths to Contemporary French Literature

Publisher : Transaction Publishers

Number of Pages : 358

Category : Social Science

Viewed : 1873


Book Summary: Although the great French novelists of the last two centuries are widely read in America, there is a widespread notion that little of importance has happened in French literature since the heyday of Sartre, Camus, and the nouveau roman. Some might argue that even well read Americans are ignorant about what is happening in European literature generally. Certainly, there has never been so few translations of foreign books in the United States, or so little coverage of foreign writers. Curious American readers need new, up-to-date information and analyses about what is happening elsewhere. Paths to Contemporary French Literature is a stimulating and much-needed guide to the major currents of one of the world's great literatures. This critical panorama of contemporary French literature introduces English-language readers to over fifty important writers and poets, many of whom are still little known outside of France. Emphasizing authors who are admired by their peers (as opposed to those with overnight reputations), John Taylor offers a compelling insider's view. The pioneering essays included in this book offer incisive analyses of the ideas motivating current writing and delve into a writer's or poet's entire output. Although some names may be familiar (Marguerite Duras, HÚlÞne Cixous, Philippe Jaccottet, Henri Michaux), the reader obtains fresh reappraisals of their seminal work. Especially noteworthy, however, are Taylor's lively introductions to many other key writers who either have not yet crossed the English Channel, let alone the Atlantic. Combating the notion that French literature is overtly intellectual, inaccessible, or interested only in formal experimentation, Taylor shows that many French writers are instead acutely inquisitive about the outside world, shrewd observers of reality, even very funny. Although not conceived as a reference book, the volume possesses some qualities of a reference work: a good bibliography, reliable dates and biographical facts. Paths to Contemporary French Literature will be of interest to students of French literature and culture, literary scholars, and readers of contemporary fiction and poetry.

Book Summary: Tous ceux qui ont aimé - et aimeront - Belle du Seigneur se sont, un jour ou l'autre, interrogés : qui était vraiment Albert Cohen ? Qui était, par-delà le mentir-vrai de ses légendes, ce romancier découvert par le grand public à l'âge de soixante-dix ans, et dont l'existence avait peut-être été aussi tumultueuse que le siècle ? De fait, on retrouvera ici tous les épisodes d'un destin exemplaire. De Corfou aux bords du Léman, de Pagnol ou Proust à Weizmann, de la Revue juive à la NRF, de Churchill à de Gaulle, de l'anonymat à la gloire, de Solal et de Mangeclous à Ariane... En rassemblant des témoignages et des documents inédits, en questionnant la plupart de ceux qui ont eu le privilège de croiser ce "valeureux", Gérard Valbert - celui même que Cohen, dans son séjour genevois, avait choisi et presque désigné - propose ici plus qu'un portrait, plus qu'une interprétation : c'est à une véritable résurrection du romancier, disparu en 1981, qu'il convoque son lecteur.

Book Summary: Using a cultural studies approach, this book explores how the Spanish colonization of North Africa continues to haunt Spain's efforts to articulate a national identity that can accommodate both the country's diversity, brought about by immigration from its old colonies, and the postnational demands of its integration in the European Union.
