  • Imaginaire de la survivance et du déclin: À propos de Je m’en vais à
           Régina de Roger Auger
    • Abstract: [O]n observe dans toute société des symboles ou des références névralgiques qui révèlent des dispositions, des sentiments profonds, des (hyper)sensibilités. Ils prennent la forme de malaises, de peurs, de tabous, d’angoisses et, un peu paradoxalement, ils soutiennent aussi des aspirations très fortes, des idéaux, des valeurs dominantes, des croyances, des vérités largement admises qui structurent les visions du monde, nourrissent les identités, commandent les débats publics et inspirent les orientations et les politiques de l’état.Cet article porte sur Je m’en vais à Régina de Roger Auger (2007) et aborde cette pièce de théâtre dans le cadre d’une problématique identitaire relative à la question des croyances et ...

  • Rebellion: A Note on Agamben’s Reception of Dostoevsky in The Open
    • Abstract: In “Theriomorphous,” the opening chapter of The Open: Man and Animal, Giorgio Agamben makes a rather puzzling reference to Dostoevsky in a discussion of an illumination from a manuscript of a Hebrew Bible in the Ambrosian Library in Milan. The illustration depicts the righteous seated at the messianic banquet at the end of history, represented with animal heads. At the very end of the chapter, Agamben surmises that this unusual representation might allude to the messianic prophecy in Isaiah 2:6 of the ultimate reconciliation between human and animal nature, “which,” as he adds in a parenthesis, “so pleased Ivan Karamazov” (The Open 3). He further quotes the prophecy “the wolf shall live with the sheep, / and the ... Read More

  • Le monde s’effondre ou Tout s’effondre?: Traduire et retraduire Things
           Fall Apart en français
    • Abstract: Considéré comme le « patriarche » de la littérature africaine, Chinua Achebe (1930-2013) est l’auteur d’une œuvre à la fois abondante et diversifiée qui compte aussi bien des romans, des recueils de poésie, des essais que des livres pour enfants. Publié en 1958 aux éditions Heinemann dans la nouvelle collection « African writers series », le roman Things Fall Apart marque de façon éclatante l’entrée en littérature de l’auteur nigérian. Traduit en une cinquantaine de langues et diffusé à plusieurs millions d’exemplaires dans le monde, le roman connaît, dès sa sortie, un succès retentissant. Se déroulant au Nigeria à la fin de la XIXe siècle, Things Fall Apart narre le destin tragique d’Okonkwo, guerrier redouté et ... Read More

  • Transcending Cultural Boundaries: Robert van Gulik’s Judge Dee
           Detective Stories
    • Abstract: The debate over “high” and “low” culture from the 1970s onward has led to the expansion of the Western literary canon, allowing detective fiction to establish itself as not only a form of popular literature, but a distinctive literary genre. “Beginning as an expression of conservative, bourgeois, ethnocentric Anglo-American values” (Cawelti 9), detective fiction at the same time exhibits the potential to subvert Anglo-American ethnocentricity and accommodate and respond to diverse cultures and ideologies. This possibility has inspired many works within this genre that represent non-Anglo-American cultures and peoples. Such texts are normally set in non-Western locales and feature investigators working within their ... Read More

  • Roman Literary Culture: From Plautus to Macrobius by Elaine Fantham
           (review)
    • Abstract: When I was a graduate student, a mentor cautioned me against reviewing books I could not write myself. Had I heeded this advice, I would not dare to evaluate the second edition of Elaine Fantham’s Roman Literary Culture: From Plautus to Macrobius (RLC). Enormously ambitious and just as successful, RLC is a triumphant synthesis of decades of thinking, offering a rigorous account of how, and why, some Romans produced texts and others consumed them.RLC’s most provocative section is its introduction, in which Fantham sets out her methodology and motivations for writing a social history of Latin (not Roman) literature, one that mutatis mutandis mobilizes the tools of reception studies to interrogate how author ...

  • Alexandrian Cosmopolitanism: An Archive by Hala Halim (review)
    • Abstract: Challenging depictions of the Egyptian city of Alexandria as the cosmopolitan city par excellence, this book reframes the very narrative of “Alexandrian cosmopolitanism” as “a Eurocentric colonial discourse” (3). Hala Halim-assistant professor of Middle Eastern Studies and Comparative Literature at New York University, born in Alexandria, and a connoisseur of its archeological, historical, and literary scenes-reexamines historical ‘facts’ presumed by cosmopolitan discourse, including cosmopolitanism’s very origins in Hellenistic Greece. The core of the book is a masterful “critique of the critique,” in which Halim proposes an alternative reading of works canonized as world literature masterpieces supposedly ... Read More

  • The Lily and the Thistle: The French Tradition and the Older Literature of
           Scotland by William Calin (review)
    • Abstract: The back jacket of The Lily and the Thistle features endorsements by Kate Ash of the University of Manchester and Rhiannon Purdie of the University of St. Andrews to the effect that the book provides “fruitful approaches” to its subject matter and is a “valuable reference work.” Both endorsements of The Lily and the Thistle accurately describe the book’s extremely detailed and revisionary engagement with the recorded literary texts of Scotland’s Middle Ages and their French textual influences. Calin’s objective in The Lily and the Thistle is, broadly, to reconsider the French sources for Scottish literature in the medieval period in light of the fact that, in the last half-century, both French and Scottish ...

  • Anti-Saints: The New Golden Legend of Sylvain Maréchal ed. by Sheila
           Delany (review)
    • Abstract: This book offers a fascinating cultural find: a strong and significant text from the first phases of the French Revolution which is virtually unknown even among specialists of the period and never reprinted in modern times. The New Golden Legend was an anti-clerical parody of a medieval and early modern best-seller by Jacopo da Varazze, or Jacques de Voragine, a Dominican friar who became bishop of Genoa: a hagiographic collection written in simple Latin in the second half of the thirteenth century and then translated into many vernacular languages. It was known in France as Légende dorée. The 1790 parody was focused not on the lives of all saints like the original, but on female saints only.The author was radical ... Read More

  • Portrait Stories by Michal Peled Ginsburg (review)
    • Abstract: Michal Peled Ginsburg’s Portrait Stories offers a clearly-written, rigorous, in-depth and enlightening examination of fictions about painted portraits. With well-defined chronological, national, and generic parameters, Portrait Stories examines nineteenth-century short stories and novellas from European and American literary traditions (American, British, French, German, and Russian). The timeframe in question reflects the distinctiveness of nineteenth-century stories, according to Ginsburg, in which the figures of the artist and the viewer play as important roles as the portrait itself. Ginsburg suggests that nineteenth-century portrait stories entail a shift away from the equation of the figure represented in the ... Read More

  • Narratives of Citizenship: Indigenous and Diasporic Peoples Unsettle the
           Nation-State eds. by Aloys N.M. Fleischmann, Nancy Van Styvendale, and
           Cody McCarroll (review)
    • Abstract: The title Narratives of Citizenship: Indigenous and Diasporic Peoples Unsettle the Nation-State points at the unwieldy structure of this collection of thirteen essays. Editors Aloys N.M. Fleischmann, Nancy Van Styvendale, and Cody McCarroll offer two narrative snapshots of “articulations of citizenship” (xv). Proposing an exploration of “how the cultural production of Indigenous and diasporic peoples enriches and ‘unsettles’-that is, interrogates, decolonizes, and re-routes/roots-the founding assumptions and practice of universal citizenship” (xiv), the editors include essays examining not only literary and historical texts, but also photography, film, and ideographic writing. Looking at the ways citizenship is ... Read More

  • Slanting I, Imagining We: Asian Canadian Literary Production in the 1980s
           and 1990s by Larissa Lai (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Slanting I, Imagining We: Asian Canadian Literary Production in the 1980s and 1990s announces Larissa Lai’s interest in the particular: two decades in Asian Canadian literary and cultural history. Indeed, one of the book’s important achievements is its analysis of the development of Asian Canadian literature during this period on its own unique terms. But what is even more striking is Lai’s careful attention to how Asian Canadian literary production must be read not only for its emergence out of opposition to histories of oppression and exclusion but also via coalition across different communities. The book as a whole, therefore, uses Asian Canadian literature and the 1980s and 1990s as a case study to ... Read More

  • No Country: Working-Class Writing in the Age of Globalization by Sonali
           Perera (review)
    • Abstract: Working-class writing is still a neglected and under-theorized genre. Associations with it follow a familiar and reductive pattern: literature written about, and often by, white men from the global North. Often this literature focuses on pivotal moments in labour history, notably strikes or the Great Depression. Literature about workers by writers from the global South is queasily placed in the category of postcolonial literature. The erasure of working-class writing from the global South impedes not only the advancement of literary study, but also the recognition of an international workers’ literature that might reflect worker identification, if not solidarity.Sonali Perera’s No Country stands as a corrective to ...

  • Écriture migrante et translinguisme au Québec by Alessandra
           Ferraro (review)
    • Abstract: L’auteure de ce rafraîchissant petit volume n’est pas une inconnue dans le monde de la recherche sur la littérature quèbécoise, loin de là. Elle est connue pour ses implications concrètes dans l’enseignement et la recherche sur cette littérature « lointaine » et c’est depuis longtemps qu’elle organise ou co-organise des colloques universitaires sur le Québec, souvent en collaboration avec les Université de Graz en Autriche et/ou avec celle de Maribor en Slovénie. On s’attend donc à une découverte, une réflexion originale concernant cette matière si diffuse que sont les « écritures migrantes », dont l’appellation est contestée depuis quelque temps, mais personne n’a encore trouvé un terme plus adéquat pour la ...

  • Pluri-Culture et écrits migratoires/Pluri-Culture and Migrant Writings
           eds. by Elizabeth Sabiston and Robert Drummond (review)
    • Abstract: Pluri-Culture et écrits migratoires/Pluri-Culture and Migrant Writings, edited by Elizabeth Sabiston and Robert Drummond, is a volume of thirty-three papers in French and English that emerged from a conference held at York University, Toronto in 2012. According to Sabiston’s introduction, the conference and, in turn, the volume offer an “interdisciplinary” approach to migration, with papers drawn from literary studies and the social sciences. In particular, it seeks to emphasize the “cultural values that each migrant takes with him” and how these mediate the “interaction of the immigrant’s original culture and that of the host country” (11-12). These claims position the volume within recent debates in migration ... Read More
