  • Issue 52 - Sins of the Flesh: Zola, Naturalism and the Madeleine
           Redemption Narrative in Nineteenth-Century France
    • Abstract: Wilson, Steven
      Mary Magdalene has endured over the centuries as a powerful icon for the redemption of the so-called sins of the flesh. In arguing that her appeal to writers was experienced no more keenly than in nineteenth-century France, this article reflects on the political, ideological and gender assumptions that are woven into the Madeleine narrative of redemption. However, it goes on to propose that, with the rise of the naturalist novel, relying on pseudo-scientific theories of pre-determination, the Madeleine myth is radically rewritten in Zola's Madeleine F rat, an often neglected text in which the Calvinist doctrine of original sin and predestination not only challenges the very notion of redemption from sexual waywardness, but inflects some of the defining principles of naturalism.

  • Issue 52 - Ecrire in-exilo ; Writing 'in exilo'
    • Abstract: Tshisungu, José
      The first page of my literary pretention was born at my mother's sister, Ba Mukulu's house, in July 1973, at her farm protected by the woody prairie lands that could be seen from atop Nsapu-Nsapu, deep within my beloved Kasai. I spent my school holidays there, at the age of 18. Four decades later, the place from which my writing emanated has radically changed. Skyscrapers have replaced the bucolic landscape that once inspired me, At the time I could not have imagined living one day in exile. Even slimmer were the chances of predicting the repression that would fall upon the country's intellectuals who - according to Marshal Mobutu's political regime - were guilty of the crime of protesting against the suppression of fundamental rights.

  • Issue 52 - La litterature congolaise en cinquante auteur(e)s: une
           bibliographie annotee ; Congolese Literature in Fifty Authors: An
           Annotated Bibliography
    • Abstract: Kihindou, Liss; Volet, Jean-Marie
      This selective bibliography brings together fifty Congolese authors that are representative of Congolese literature, from both branches of the Great River. It includes both men and women, writers both of international renown and those still etching their name in the literary annals of their homeland. Each brief note devoted to individual authors highlights the fact that most writers from the region have left their native land to settle elsewhere, either temporarily or definitively. Their works often concern the country they left behind and also describe the experience of "migritude" culture shock as they discover that the countries in which they arrived did not fit the image they projected in the Congo. This cross-reference of the diaspora on the world, on others and on one's self, is a determining factor in the dynamic nature of present-day Congolese literature and in the growing notoriety of certain writers, particularly north of the River.

  • Issue 52 - Urban Musical Cultures and Postcolonial Mobilities in Fiston
           Mwanza Mujila's 'Tram 83' and Wilfried N'Sond 's 'Fleur de beton'
    • Abstract: Ravi, Srilata
      In his book 'Black France: Colonialism, Immigration and Transnationalism' (2006), Dominic Thomas notes that Africa in Europe is an intersection of cultural and historical movements originating from Senegalese, Djiboutian, Congolese, Ivory Coast and Caribbean spaces, amongst others. Within this heterogeneous Afro-European universe, Congolese artists and writers from both the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo have contributed significantly to the shaping of a literary ecology of "Afropolitan" (Mbembe, 2007) mobilities. Through a reading of 'Fleur de b ton' (2012) and 'Tram 83' (2014), I will show how "Afropolitan" artists Wilfried N'Sond and Fiston Mwanza Mujila achieve the critical m tissage of social worlds, genres and categories, as they ingeniously weave hip-hop aesthetics into their writings.

  • Issue 52 - Out of Darkness? Bofane's Afropean Ndombolo Trickster
           Resistance in Mathematiques congolaises
    • Abstract: Bragard, Veronique
      This article uses the Ndombolo dance reference and image to shed light on Bofane's first novel 'Math matiques congolaises' (2008) in which the sexy dance becomes a metaphor for political and social instability. Using Bob W. White's analysis of the Ndombolo dance, this paper envisions the main protagonist C lio (and ultimately Bofane himself) as an atalaku trickster. Devoured by hunger, C lio manages to find resilience and enter political spheres thanks to his manipulation in mathematics. The Ndombolo movement is also at the core of Bofane's characterization as well as in his heteroglossic and heterolingual writing revealing of an Afropean sensibility. This study highlights how 'Math matiques congolaises' cynically points to complex and circumvoluted forms of present-day resistance while it unveils the tragic history of the Congo and its inhabitants.

  • Issue 52 - Afropolitanisme et identities plurielles: Les crivaines
           congolaises au debut du 21e siecle ; Afropolitanism and Plural Identities:
           Congolese Writers in the Early 21st Century
    • Abstract: Volet, Jean-Marie
      Carried on waves of migration, writers of Congolese origin reside increasingly outside the Congo. In order to determine the kinds of relationships these diasporic authors maintain with their native land, we have analysed the contextual and paratextual data taken from around sixty publications that have been released over the past fifteen years. The concept of Afropolitanism - a neologism coined by Taiye Selasi to express the cosmopolitan nature of contemporary Africa - underlines the very mobility of people and the plurality of their identities. To what extent do the values and ideals made available through Afropolitanism answer to the preoccupations of authors and their own self-image? Do today's Congolese writers feel at one with "Afropolitans" who, with their liveliness, education, mobility and inalienable feeling of attachment with Africa, no longer belong only to one space but actually feel at home in several places. These are the questions raised in the following pages.

  • Issue 52 - Alain Mabanckou's Subversion of Stereotypes Through Humour
    • Abstract: Kleppinger, Kathryn
      This essay looks at Alain Mabanckou's prolific literary output to consider the significance of characters who write their own stories and do so with a marked sense of humour. They discuss many of the most sensitive social and political questions of the contemporary era, including immigration, national identity, and the heritage of colonialism. In many cases they write, as a form of release, to establish the legitimacy of their own voices and stories. Humour becomes their weapon of choice, as they demonstrate the power of literature in changing their lives. Through this creative process, they also undermine standard images of suffering and poverty to show Congo (and Africa) teeming with life, ideas, and creativity.

  • Issue 52 - La litterature du Congo-Brazzaville: du roman d'exil a l'exil
           du roman ; Literature from the Congo-Brazzaville: from the Literature of
           Exile to the Exile of Literature
    • Abstract: Kodia, Noel
      This article aims to provide a window on literature from the Congo-Brazzaville, the origins of which go back to the decade prior to the country's independence, in 1960. It underlines the importance of the novel, the evolution of the themes it has tackled, the arrival of a number of women onto the Congolese literary scene and the influence of socio-political troubles on the literary production of most of the authors. The significant waves of Congolese emigration, towards France and the rest of the world, today plays a significant role in the literary history of the Congo, a history dominated by the desire of writers, often strongly established outside the country, to go back to their roots, and the need to get used to the new realities of their environment.

  • Issue 51 - "Qui donc fermera la porte entr'ouverte?": The home and the
           nation in women's war poetry
    • Abstract: Goldberg, Nancy Sloan
      The defence of hearth and home was one of several justifications for the Great War, and it carries special significance for women as the traditional symbols of the household. Ironically, these same women are also called upon to consent to the sacrifice and consequent destruction of their individual families to defend the larger Family of the Nation. This essay examines how some well-known contemporary women poets represent these competing perspectives of foyer and patrie. For some writers, the absence of the men has emptied the home of its material reality, and its destruction is visible, measurable and permanent. In the poetry of others, the territory of France is figurative and absolute, disappearing into the homeland to become un pays reve sanctified by the soldiers' blood.

  • Issue 51 - "Un puits, c'est une tour a l'envers": Rewriting the First
           World War from the Home Front
    • Abstract: Bird, Dunlaith
      In Rachilde's vision of wartime France, Dans le puits ou la vie inferieure, 1915-1917 (1918), the towering male bastion of war is swallowed by the well, its walls dripping, covered in fungus and slime: "Un puits, c'est une tour a l'envers". For French women, Margaret Darrow notes, there is no definitive story to equate with the "troglodyte saga of the trenches" recounted by Barbusse and Dorgeles. This article examines Rachilde's wartime writing as an example of the experimental forms of women's writing which emerged over the course of the war. Exclusion from the trenches forces the writer to invent an alternative narrative of the First World War from the home front, or as Rachilde puts it, "d'histoires qui ne puissent pas etre l'Histoire".

  • Issue 51 - Lucie cousturier et les "tirailleurs senegalais" de la grande
           guerre: Histoire d'une rencontre
    • Abstract: Volet, Jean-Marie
      Plus de cent trente mille "Tirailleurs senegalais" furent appeles a combattre pour la France au cours de la premiere guerre mondiale. La portee de leur engagement a ete longtemps marginalisee par l'Histoire, la litterature et les commemorations officielles. De nos jours encore, la voix des soldats africains, comme d'ailleurs celle des innombrables femmes ayant participe a l'effort de guerre, peine a se faire entendre. Dans ce contexte, l'ouvrage de Lucie Cousturier qui fut publie en 1920 sous le titre Des inconnus chez moi est doublement important: il appartient a un vaste ensemble de temoignages abandonnes en chemin par le monde des lettres pour des raisons qui n'ont rien de litteraire; ensuite, il evoque le sort et la personnalite des Africains envoyes au front de 1914 a 1918 en se demarquant des cliches qui dominaient la societe fran aise d'alors. Avant d'etre ecrivaine, Lucie Cousturier etait artiste-peintre et les portraits de "Tirailleurs senegalais" qu'elle a legues a la posterite complementent de maniere interessante son oeuvre litteraire.

      Mes questions pour Camille Laurens, que j'ai eu l'honneur de rencontrer a Paris en juin 2013, tournent autour des notions de desir, d'amour et de risque ou de danger. Elles sont inspirees par son dernier livre, sur la repetition et le retour, 'Encore et jamais' (2013), mais aussi par les "refrains", les idees et les mots qui reviennent dans ses ecrits anterieurs.

      L'art des tranchees s'inscrit dans une longue tradition d'art populaire militaire qui connait son apogee lors de la Premiere guerre mondiale. De nombreux objets, parmi lesquels on peut citer notamment des douilles d'obus gravees, cannes sculptees, bagues, coupe-papiers ou encore des briquets, ont ete crees par les soldats des le debut du conflit. Si les createurs d'art des tranchees ont mentionne explicitement le conflit a travers la representation de nombreux motifs iconiques de la Grande Guerre (comme les avions ou les chars), c'est principalement par le biais des multiples interpretations d'une iconographie plus legere et distanciee de la guerre a priori (animaux, fleurs, representations feminines erotisees) qu'ils ont pu evoquer leur experience intime du conflit.

  • Issue 51 - "L'Enfer noir de la guerre aux visions spectrales": Le realisme
           graphique dans la poesie de combat de Paul Costel
    • Abstract: Mole, Gary D
      Malgre les quelques trop rares tentatives de reevaluer les divers corpus de la poesie francaise de la Grande Guerre, il n'y a toujours pas de consensus autour de la poesie de combat tel qu'il existe, par exemple, dans le canon des poetes de guerre britanniques. En effet, les etudes recentes des ecrits de guerre d'ecrivains francais, souvent associes a l'avant-garde, continuent a laisser dans l'ombre de nombreux poetes-combattants dont l'oeuvre ne merite pas moins l'attention critique. Cette etude tente de faire justice au cas remarquable de Paul Costel, mobilise dans l'infanterie des 1914. Auteur de cinq volumes de poesie avant la guerre, Costel publia quatre recueils pendant la guerre meme, suite a ses experiences au front. C'est pourtant son dernier recueil publie quelques mois apres l'armistice, que nous etudierons ici. Dans Les Hurlements de l'enfer, Costel s'applique a representer la violence, l'horreur et la souffrance des soldats dans les tranchees, sans oublier les armes de destruction employees au front. Sans etre avant-gardiste, Costel rassemble toutes ses prouesses linguistiques et rhetoriques pour transmettre, par un realisme graphique, sa vision infernale des tranchees, defiant et dejouant ainsi son propre aveu de l'indicibilite de l'experience.

  • Issue 51 - Peurs et tremblements: Histoire et recit d'une emotion a
           travers les temoignages des combattants (1914-1919)
    • Abstract: Chabot, Joceline; Dufour, Frederick
      Dans cet article, nous souhaitons analyser les representations d'une des emotions centrales de l'experience combattante, la peur. Plus precisement, notre etude vise a comprendre les formes d'expression de cette emotion en tenant compte de ce qui est culturellement et socialement acceptable dans le contexte de la Grande Guerre. Dans ce cadre, quelle place la peur occupe-t-elle dans les recits des combattants? Quelle relation entretient-elle avec l'ideal de virilite guerriere au coeur de l'identite masculine? Notre corpus compte une dizaine de temoignages de soldats ayant vecu l'experience combattante a un titre ou a un autre. A travers leurs recits, nous analyserons les representations de la peur dans ses dimensions individuelle et collective afin de comprendre et de confronter le sens que les temoins ont donne a leur experience.

  • Issue 50 - Drole de drame: La volonte de symbiose entre theatre et romans
           chez Yasmina Reza
    • Abstract: Jaccomard, Helene
      Yasmina Reza a produit une oeuvre faite aussi bien de pieces de theatre que de romans. D'apres Denis Guenoun, en Reza, se retrouve un "dialogue complexe et conflictuel entre theatre et roman". Apres avoir explore les formes que prend ce dialogue, l'article propose de considerer les rapports entre textes de theatre et texte romanesques plutot comme une symbiose destinee a occuper tout le champ litteraire en abolissant les frontieres generiques communes.

  • Issue 50 - Playtime at the Moulin Rouge
    • Abstract: Visconti, Will
      At the Moulin-Rouge during the fin-de-siecle, there existed entertainments as diverse as sideshows, singers, dancing and the "games" of sex-for-sale and sex-as-spectacle, all of which encapsulated varying forms of play. I hope to answer a number of questions pertaining to the concept of playtime at the Moulin: How were the attractions at the Moulin Rouge represented? How do these forms of play intersect? How have representations of these forms of play changed over time, and why? To further illustrate the forms of playtime at the Moulin-Rouge I will refer to depictions of the Moulin in art and film, ranging from the works of Toulouse-Lautrec to contemporary representations of the venue as seen in Francophone and Anglophone films. Through these representations of playtime, I shall examine ideas including the power-play of the Gaze, gendered play, and gender roles within "playtime". Other ideas to be considered are of vicarious play and participation, and memory and play (the enduring fascination of the Moulin-Rouge in the public imaginations and its depiction). I am also interested in what these forms of play and their representation can tell us about prevalent ideologies of Parisian and Montmartrois culture of the late nineteenth century, and the similarities between the fin-de-siecle and twentieth centuries.

  • Issue 50 - "Le voyage etait jeu": Les grands periples dans 'Memoires
           d'Hadrien' de Marguerite Yourcenar
    • Abstract: Southwood, Jane
      Le theme des voyages dans l'oeuvre de Marguerite Yourcenar - un theme qui correspond a une predilection personnelle de cet ecrivain amateur de voyages - a souvent ete discute dans des essais critiques. Il reste pourtant des aspects de ce theme qui doivent etre analyses. Cet article explore les voyages dans les memoires imaginaires de l'empereur romain Hadrien, qui regna de l'an 117 a l'an 124 et dont le principat fut caracterise par ses frequents voyages dans toutes les parties de son vaste empire. L'ouvrage etudie ici - 'Memoires d'Hadrien' - livre prime, fut publie en 1951. S'appuyant sur une caracteristique de l'empereur, etayee par un poeme qu'il ecrivit juste avant sa mort, Marguerite Yourcenar insuffle un caractere badin aux songeries de l'empereur sur ses voyages. Ce penchant pour le jeu, partie d'une riche tradition romaine dont nous allons parler dans cet essai, sera etabli a la lumiere d'autres aspects des voyages de l'empereur.

  • Issue 50 - Jean Dujardin, 'OSS 117', and the art of the spoof
    • Abstract: McCann, Ben
      The French comic actor Jean Dujardin has become best known for his role as Hubert Bonisseur de La Bath in the immensely popular 'OSS 117: Le Caire, nid d'espions' (2007) and 'OSS 117: Rio ne repond plus' (2009). Both OSS films are detailed period pastiches that parody the conventions of the 1960s James Bond series. Euro-spy film tropes - production design, cinematography, title sequences - are all fastidiously recreated, and the films refract the attitudes of the era through their broad physical comedy routines. This article will demonstrate how Dujardin's performance style conforms to Jerry Palmer's 'the logic of the absurd' in which both the plausible and the implausible collide and collude. Dujardin's lithe form, his facial tics, and fluid physicality are all perfectly suited to this collision. Moreover, his background in cabaret and stand-up comedy, and his honed tradition of audience interaction and direct address, bestow upon Dujardin the privileged status of a performer who is playing with the codes and conventions of narrative cinema.

  • Issue 50 - Le jeu des "Je": L'autofiction chez Colette
    • Abstract: Jandey, Brigitte
      La vie de Colette est une succession de reinventions d'ellememe, et dans son oeuvre comme a la ville, elle jongle avec cette realite mouvante d'une ecrivaine-artiste habile a se mettre en scene. Les seuls moments ou elle dit la verite sont ceux ou la verite la piege en realisant ce qu'elle invente - ou pretend inventer... Depuis toujours ses lecteurs jouent a essayer de demeler le vrai du faux dans ses textes et elle fait semblant de deplorer qu'on la "cherche toute vive entre les pages de [ses] romans" (Naissance, 341). Espiegle comme sa copie conforme Claudine, pleine d'humour comme son double Renee, elle joue sans cesse de cette vraie fausse verite, jusqu'a concevoir un style d'ecriture en forme de charade, que son alias, Colette, decline dans La Naissance du jour. Si Doubrovsky l'a creditee d'avoir invente l'autofiction dans ce roman, etait-ce vraiment une invention ou l'aveu enfin public de ces tours de passe-passe que Proust admirait? Dans le cadre d'une etude plus large sur l'autofiction chez Colette, nous examinerons les mystifications d'une auteure qui adorait jouer a cache-cache avec ses lecteurs. Elles nous aideront a determiner a quel point ce jeu des je, tout de suite delibere, a longtemps fait de Colette une pionniere, avant qu'elle ne joue cartes sur table dans La Naissance du jour.

  • Issue 50 - Le je(u) de l'actrice: Role-play and rebirth in Roch
           Stephanik's 'Stand-by' (2000)
    • Abstract: Hardwick, Joe
      Roch Stephanik's 2000 film 'Stand-by' recounts the story of Helene, a thirty-something woman so traumatised by her husband's dumping her before they are to board a flight to Buenos Aires that she cannot bring herself to leave Orly airport. In the months that follow, Helene transforms herself into Helena, a prostitute who takes her clients to nearby airport hotels. In this article, I will read Helene in relation to other mobile urban women in French literature and cinema, from Baudelaire's flaneur poetry to the mobile cinematic characters in films such as Agnes Varda's 'Cleo de 5 a 7' and Claire Denis's 'Vendredi soir'. More specifically, I will examine the recurrent motifs of glass and/or mirrors in 'Stand-by' and in those two films, and their relationship to notions of mobility, identity and transformation. I will argue that Orly airport functions not as a space of transit, but as a space of transition and of re-birth. With reference to the work of Ross Chambers, Marc Auge and Michel de Certeau, I will examine how role-play is a major factor in Helene's self-empowerment, a transformation which will eventually allow her to leave the airport on her own terms.

  • Issue 50 - L'ecrivain porc-epic: 'Du Herisson' d'Eric Chevillard
    • Abstract: Grauby, Francoise
      Variation sur le theme de l'idee fixe, 'Du Herisson' d'Eric Chevillard explore l'univers de l'ecrivain au travail. La presence incongrue d'un herisson sur la table de travail de l'ecrivain, au coeur meme de sa creation, remet en cause son art poetique et inaugure un monologue cocasse sur la question de l'auteur. Tout en se regalant d'opposer l'activite cerebrale du romancier aux moeurs modestes du herisson, Chevillard les agrege de sorte qu'on se sait plus si le herisson, a la fois moteur et frein de l'ecriture, declencheur et devorateur, irreductible a une seule condition, alimente ou detruit le jeu litteraire. Les deux evidemment, pour notre plus grand bonheur. L'important etant que de cette alliance qui n'en est pas une, naisse une collaboration, meme a corps defendant, qui abolisse le singulier au profit d'un collectif. Car faire l'experience du herisson, c'est pour tout ecrivain l'occasion d'eprouver une nouvelle facon d'etre en litterature. Du Herisson questionne a sa facon ce qui travaille la litterature de l'interieur depuis quelques siecles, a savoir sa propre mythologie: comment s'en accommoder, la combattre et la depasser tout en sachant qu'elle est si bien ancree dans la chair qu'on ne peut l'arracher sans decouvrir le squelette qui l'informe.

  • Issue 50 - Ludicity in surrealism and in translation
    • Abstract: Aru, Elise
      Surrealist practice brings to the fore the boundless potential of ludic invention. Play in Surrealism thrives on continual detournements or displacements in the Surrealists' own practices as well as in established works. Indeed, the Surrealists managed to juggle between respecting, bending and reinventing the rules of making sense, creating new forms of play and new semantics as well as formal results. This paper experiments with a ludic and creative approach to translation itself, and to translating Surrealist poems in particular. I propose a mise en abyme of the Surrealist practices in my translations of two poems by Andre Breton into poem-objects, which involves an intermedial translation as well as an interlingual one. An examination of the definition of translation and its relation to creativity and faithfulness will emerge out of the discussions of my translations.
