Book Summary:

In this concise and illuminating study, Jacques Rancière, one of the world's most popular and influential living philosophers, examines the life and work of the celebrated nineteenth-century French poet and critic, Stéphane Mallarmé. Ranciere presents Mallarmé as neither an aesthete in need of rare essences and unheard-of words, nor the silent and nocturnal thinker of some poem too pure to be written. Mallarmé is the contemporary of a republic that is seeking out forms of civic worship to replace the pomp of religions and kings. If his writing is difficult, it is because it complies with a demanding and delicate poetics that is itself responding to an exceptional awareness of the complexity of an historical moment as well as the role that poetry ought to play in it.

Book Summary:

Two revolutionary texts by Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898) lie at the heart of this book, the poem Un Coup de dés and the prose collection Divagations. An international team of scholars from Paris to New York explores the multiple connections between Mallarmé and Australia, especially as they are embodied in the works of Sydney poet Chris Brennan (1869-1932), whose writing, according to Mallarmé, offered a «parenté de songe» («a kinship of dream») with his own. With its focus on divagation - or wandering, reverie, and exploration - this book summons forth a Mallarmé seen through a specifically Australian lens, through the focus of a century of critical and creative responses to his work, a Mallarmé whose poetics enfold a particular femininity as well as a particular response to the feminine, and a Mallarmé who possessed the extraordinary gift of seeing inspiring contemporary art.

Book Summary:

On s'habitue - presque - à tout, même à la violence ! On s'exaspère de tout, parfois des livres sur la violence ! On se proclame expert en tout, surtout quand il s'agit de dénoncer la violence ! On se veut cynique en tout, plus spécialement quand on administre la violence ! On se fatigue de tout, surtout des pratiques et représentations de la violence. Celle-ci est un défi à l'intelligence, à l'éthique et au sens de la responsabilité. Les formes de violence des histoires postcoloniales et leur perpétuation nous poussent à les (re)lire et à y traquer les confusions, les manipulations et les maquillages. Affectant l'histoire et la géographie, le physique et le mental, les individus et les communautés, les États et les sociétés civiles, le sacré et le profane, le local et le global, les contemporains et leurs aïeux, les violences nous récitent non seulement le chapelet de la construction de l'absurdité de l'existence postcoloniale, mais aussi l'injustifiable permanence de l'injustice. La violence révèle le fonds bestial qui sommeille en nous, chaque fois que, ivres de notre puissance ou de notre échec, nous mettons nos intelligences et nos responsabilités en veilleuse.

Book Summary:

This volume presents a new proposal for the link between philosophy and art.

Book Summary:

As a textual form, the essai predominates in modern and contemporary literature in French. Emerging from an earlier tradition and distinguished from its English-language counterpart, the French-language essay ranges from Stéphane Mallarmé to Colette, Victor Segalen to Aimé Césaire, Jean Grenier to Pierre Michon. The essai remains, however, one of the most hazily identified of textual forms, its definition often depending on the progressive elimination of all other generic possibilities. Excluded from the archigenres (theatre, poetry, récit), it can even be seen as a hold-all category whose role is to absorb the anarchic extremes of writing. It is perhaps this very lack of pretension to orthodoxy that has drawn so many writers to the essai. The conventional understanding of the term - as a tentative, unsystematic exploration - stresses the genre's provisional nature, its refusal of any claims to comprehensiveness. The essai exploits the devices of anecdote, illustration and humour; it is addressed to a wide and often general audience; it is also intricately linked to the performance of ideological and writerly strategies, often reordering the classical art of rhetoric and persuasion. As the contributions to this volume show, there is a need to outline an ethics and politics, as well as poetics, of essayism.

Book Summary:

This volume assembles twelve interdisciplinary essays that were originally presented at the Second International Conference on Word and Music Studies at Ann Arbor, MI, in 1999, a conference organized by the International Association for Word and Music Studies (WMA). The contributions to this volume focus on two centres of interest. The first deals with general issues of literature and music relations from culturalist, historical, reception-aesthetic and cognitive points of view. It covers issues such as conceptual problems in devising transdisciplinary histories of both arts, cultural functions of opera as a means of reflecting postcolonial national identity, the problem of verbalizing musical experience in nineteenth-century aesthetics and of understanding reception processes triggered by musicalized fiction. The second centre of interest deals with a specific genre of vocal music as an obvious area of word and music interaction, namely the song cycle. As a musico-literary genre, the song cycle not only permits explorations of relations between text and music in individual songs but also raises the question if, and to what extent words and/or music contribute to creating a larger unity beyond the limits of single songs. Elucidating both of these issues with stimulating diversity the essays in this section highlight classic nineteenth- and twentieth-century song cycles by Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Hugo Wolf, Richard Strauss and Benjamin Britten and also include the discussion of a modern successor of the song cycle, the concept album as part of today s popular culture."
