Abstract

Dernière série en date créée par Aaron Sorkin, The Newsroom (HBO, 2012-2014) se construit comme une utopie, assumant et entérinant un nouveau classicisme télévisuel. Comme The West Wing en son temps, la série se propose de réenchanter une institution qui a perdu son aura. Elle dépeint un monde d’idéalistes dévoués à une noble cause, où des journalistes abandonnent la course à l’audimat pour produire « le meilleur journal de toute la télévision ». Avec des dialogues virtuoses, cette série utopiste entièrement placée sous le signe de Don Quichotte promeut l’élitisme au rang de nouvel humanisme. Comment cette série se distingue-t-elle par son approche et sa représentation du métier et quels ressorts utilise-t-elle ? En quoi la figure de Don Quichotte a-t-elle marqué le créateur de la série et comment permet-elle de la décrypter ?

Abstract

From the beginning of the genre, women writers have made a major contribution to the development of industrial writing. Although prevented from gaining first-hand experience of the coalface, Welsh women writers were amongst the first to try to fictionalize those heavy industries—coal and metal in the south, and slate in the north—which dominated the lives of the majority of the late nineteenth-century Welsh population. Treatment of industrial matter is generally fragmentary in this early women’s writing; industrial imagery and metaphor may be used in novels that are not primarily “about” industry at all. Yet from c. 1880–1910, Welsh women writers made a significant—and hitherto critically neglected—attempt to make sense in literature of contemporary industrial Wales in powerful and innovative ways. This essay maps their contribution and considers anglophone Welsh women writers’ adaptations and innovations of form (particularly romance) as they try to find a way of representing industrial landscapes, communities and the daily realities of industrial labour. It identifies the genesis in women’s writing of tropes that would become central to later industrial fiction, including depictions of industrial accident, injury, death and disability. And it explores the representation of social relations (class, gender, ethnicity, sexuality) and conflict on this tumultuous, dangerous new stage.
