  • Location, location, location

    • Authors: Claire Larsonneur
      Abstract: Young British novelist David Mitchell achieved fame in his first three novels, Ghostwritten, Number9dream and Cloud Atlas, published between 1999 and 2004, by using audacious narrative techniques involving a diffraction of the plot along a network of distinct locations scattered all over the globe. Exploiting the interplay between globalia (spaces characterized by their standardized features and their indifference to location) and localia (distinctive local features), his portrayal of our contemporary relation to space echoes the notion of co-spatiality produced by French geographer Jacques Lévy. Pushing the analysis further, Mitchell’s novels build upon the coexistence of screen-based and text-based modes of representation to showcase the multiple angles of our evolving relation to space. In contrast, his latest novel Black Swan Green, dedicated to the experience of growing up in the English countryside in the 80s, appears more traditional in form and intent.

  • “England [is] a long way off”: Historical and Ethical “Elsewheres”
           in Ian McEwan’s Atonement

    • Authors: Elsa Cavalié
      Abstract: Recent fiction has shown that, for many contemporary British writers (Ishiguro, Barker, Swift,. . .), elsewhere means, first and foremost, the mythical England of the past, whether one longs to inhabit it, or dreads its pervasive and toxic influence. Indeed, Atonement—a 2001 novel set in the 1930’s—ironically debunks the pervasive myths of Englishness, such as the English country house or the gentlemanly code of conduct, in order to highlight their inadequacy during war time—an ethical elsewhere where traditional values are radically challenged.
      Through the examples of Robbie and Briony during WWII, the novel then weaves a network of tensions between collective and individual identities that questions the notion of “encounter with the Other”. In Atonement, McEwan tries to define a new ethical approach of the relationship with the Other—whose proximity with Levinasian ethics will be evoked—and thus to atone historiographically for the collective sins of the past.

  • From Behind the Looking-Glass: Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let me Go and Beyond

    • Authors: Hélène Machinal, CEIMA (HCTI EA 4249)
      Abstract: This article proposes a diachronic approach to Ishiguro’s novels aiming at inscribing his last novel in a reflexion on the nature of reality. Thus, the shift from real to imaginary reality will first be tackled with an emphasis on mythical and structural frames. The notions of self and self-representation will then be broached as becoming obsessive motifs recurring through markers of vision and narration. The last part will suggest that Never Let Me Go veers off from the author’s earlier novels as retrospection is replaced by projection and individual introspection by collective ethics.

  • Out of this (English) World: Englishness Seen from Abroad in Graham
           Swift’s Out of This World and Salman Rushdie’s The Ground Beneath Her
           Feet

    • Authors: Catherine Pesso-Miquel
      Abstract: One might at first query the strategy of drawing parallels between the two contemporary British novels selected for this article, Out of this World (henceforth OTW) and The Ground Beneath Her Feet (henceforth GBF). Indeed the former, published in 1988, is relatively short, with its two hundred and eight pages, and was written by the reticent and self deprecating Graham Swift, who, some might argue, is quintessentially English, while the latter, published in 1999, is a huge Indo-Anglian tome written by the flamboyant and somewhat self-mythologizing Salman Rushdie. Yet a surprising number of similar elements link the two works. Both use fragmented, anti-linear narratives while at the same time weaving a careful web of continuity through the use of linked metaphors, echoes and isotopes. In both novels the untimely death of a beautiful, charismatic young woman occurs, as if to confirm Edgar Poe’s remark, in his essay entitled “The Philosophy of Composition” (1846), that “the death of a ...

  • “In a Glass Grotesquely”: Patrick McGrath’s Quaint Old
           England

    • Authors: Jocelyn Dupont
      Abstract: Patrick McGrath’s new Gothic literature owes a great part of its early success to the singular, often gleefully weird depictions of England it offers, such as the bleak and misty Berkshire landscapes of Ceck Marsh in The Grotesque (1989). Although influences such as Evelyn Waugh’s have sometimes been mentioned to characterize McGrath’s satirical approach to his home country, which he recently relinquished to become an American citizen, it appears that his portrayal of Albion is more singular than intertextual, infusing as it does England’s crumbling respectability with a high dose of uncanny grotesqueries. This paper investigates these strategies of distortions designed to make the distant homely incongruously uncanny by looking into a selection of three early, little known short stories—“The Lost Explorer” (1988), “Vigilance” (1989) and “Cleave the Vampire: A Gothic Pastorale” (1991)—in which the satirical vein is at its peak. As the recently published Trauma (2008)—McGrath’s first...

  • When Elsewhere is Home: Mapping Literature as Home in Lawrence Durrell’s
           “Cities, Plains and People”

    • Authors: Corinne Alexandre-Garner, Isabelle Keller-Privat
      Abstract: Written in Beirut in 1943, by an Anglo-Irishman man born in India and later posted in Egypt, the poem “Cities, Plains and People” raises the question of Lawrence Durrell’s problematic relationship to the outside world and to his own identity. Elsewhere functions as the point of departure for the poet’s investigation into his past as he tries to recapture the innocence of youth, a time-space which functions as the maieutic space of writing. Leaving behind the imaginary haven of an idealised childhood, he offers the reader an apparently linear and biographical poem whose deeper Odyssean structure forces the reader into the uneasy, off-centre yet rewarding position of the traveller constantly reassessing the old frontiers. We shall show how the syntagmatic outline of the poem’s retrospective is woven into the paradigmatic structure of the memorial, philosophical and aesthetic construct mapping home as a perpetual elsewhere and defining Lawrence Durrell’s personal landscape.

  • Spenglerian Echoes and the Decline of Englishness in Under
           the Volcano

    • Authors: Christine Vandamme
      Abstract: Spengler’s Decline of the West is a major intertext of Under the Volcano and its influence is often underestimated. The paper first underlines the essential echoes between the two works, which both portray the voyage of a lost Faustian soul across real and imaginary Mexico. One crucial geographical landmark is that of the barranca, which is omnipresent both literally and figuratively, as it stands for the ultimate symptom of a dying civilisation, Western civilisation. There is a parallel reflexion on the decline of British identity and political choices, which turns out to be nothing more than a simple façade, a dead-end where sterility and hollowness prevail, a tight rope over a gaping abyss, which is very similar to Conrad’s heart of darkness or Eliot’s wasteland. So, instead of a positioning relative to his British origins, the Consul explores the ethical dimension of margins, precarious balance, and a final plunge downhill, into the barranca.

  • Frictional Encounters: D.H. Lawrence and Native Americans

    • Authors: Elise Brault
      Abstract: A few of Lawrence’s poems written before and while he was in New Mexico (1922-1923) stage the impeded exchanges between the English poet and the Indian whose (real or symbolical) face is either masked or undecipherable. Such frictional relations are prompted by a desire to be adopted by the Indian while the Lawrentian “I” refers to himself as a “homeless dog”. But though the rite of passage remains unaccomplished, it is still from these very frictional encounters that Lawrence expects to draw vital energy to give European civilization a new impetus. His aim therefore, is to find an elsewhere which could provide him new energy, without turning his back on England definitely.

  • From Babel to Eden: D. H. Lawrence's Quest Abroad

    • Authors: Shirley Bricout
      Abstract: Having sustained the strain of censorship and the shoc of conscription examinations during the war, D. H. Lawrence left his native country with his wife in 1919 in search of new forms of relationships between men through cosmic rebirth. As a consequence, in his novels, Aaron’s Rod, Kangaroo and The Plumed Serpent, set respectively in Italy, Australia and Mexico, Lawrence introduces characters who, mirroring his own despair, reject Britain, or “the Babel” as he calls his homeland and what it stands for in the world.
      In this article, I would like to explore how the physical, emotional and also ideological distancing from Britain is narrated through the very descriptions of foreign lands and cultures. Indeed, even if the characters are miles away from Britain, they still bear with them their cultural background, so it is through the prism of their Englishness that they discover the native inhabitants, politics, religion, architecture, birds and plants of the countries they are visiting....

  • When West Meets East in E. M. Forster’s Hill of Devi

    • Authors: Catherine Delmas
      Abstract: The Hill of Devi relates Forster's experience of deterritorialisation in India; in spite of his efforts to adapt to the country, thus making cross-cultural encounters possible, his letters convey a paradoxical sense of belonging and un-belonging. The Hill of Devi reveals a gap between the author’s cultural background, his Englishness which seeps through the narrative frame, theatricality, tongue-in-cheek humour, comedy, and his winks at the reader, and the “queerness” of India. The eurocentric, distorting gaze of the foreign observer, prone to focus on anomaly, reveals a gap between a cultural model or center (Englishness) and what deviates from it, i.e. ex-centricity. India undergoes a paradoxical process of exaggeration and reduction which turns it into a stage or a carnival. Intertextuality (Gilbert and Sullivan, Alice in Wonderland) casts light on reversal, incongruity and blurred boundaries. India in The Hill of Devi is both a cultural, an ideological and an aesthetic construct...
