Abstract

Les passages de Paris, lieux de mémoire de la « capitale du XIXe siècle », haut lieu du capitalisme triomphant, ont été au centre des recherches et réflexions de Walter Benjamin durant son exil en France dans les années 1930. Publié pour la première fois en 1982, le Livre des passages, oeuvre foisonnante et inachevée est devenu un véritable mythe, mine inépuisable de matériaux pour la recherche universitaire et lieu de convergence de tous les discours postmodernes.

Abstract

The Jews is an anti-historical thriller in the form of a Talmudic tragicomedy, taking place sometime during the Second World War. Stalin and his Minister of Security Beria are worried about the political developments in Germany, where Martin Heidegger has replaced Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of the Third Reich. Suspecting that the Frankfurt School, headed by Vice-Chancellor Walter Benjamin, has masterminded this takeover, he dispatches two Jewish actors, Salomon Maimon and Natalia Goncharova, to investigate the situation in the hope of uncovering the extent of the Jewish conspiracy. Upon arrival in Berlin, Maimon and Goncharova are received by Benjamin, who introduces them to Heidegger. The latter has stopped speaking to anyone except his mother since his rise to power, and Benjamin holds long speeches on the history of theater, the law, God, the royal gods and the old goddesses. Eventually, prodded by his mother, Heidegger marries Goncharova, surrounded by a merry audience. The novel ends on a plain somewhere between Moscow and Berlin, where the final battle for Jerusalem is being waged. In front of the entrance of a camp, Maimon and Benjamin are joined by a group of old Jews arriving by train, bringing the news of Stalin’s death by circumcision. They reenact scenes from the Old Testament while Jerusalem is burning. Did the world to come finally arrive?

Abstract

Sir Walter Besant, anobli par la Reine et enterré à Westminster Abbey, fut le romancier anglais le plus populaire de son temps. Son parcours aurait été différent sans son séjour, initiatique à tous égards, de presque sept ans dans l'océan Indien et son ascension du Piton des Neiges (île de La Réunion, anciennement île Bourbon) en août 1863. La découverte par ce jeune Anglais des contrées éloignées de l'Empire britannique, modela sa personnalité en le débarrassant de ses préjugés, en l'ouvrant aux autres ; ce fut un voyage déterminant pour sa carrière future et les relations sur lesquelles son action sociale, philanthropique, littéraire, s'appuya par la suite. L'ouvrage présente pour la première fois le tout premier texte publié par sir Walter Besant, le Journal de Bourbon, et des extraits de son Autobiographie ; ces deux textes sont devenus dans la langue originale des raretés pour bibliophiles avertis.

Abstract

Renaissance pastoral poetry is gaining new interest for its distinctive imaginative vein, its varied allusive content, and the theoretical implications of the genre. This is by far the biggest ever anthology of English Renaissance pastoral poetry, with 277 pieces spanning two centuries. Spenser, Sidney, Jonson and Drayton are amply represented alongside their many contemporaries. There is a wide range of pastoral lyrics, weightier allusive pieces, and translations from classical and vernacular pastoral poetry; also, more unusually, pastoral ballads and poems set in all kinds of prose works. Each piece has been freshly edited from the original sources, with full apparatus and commentary. This book will be complemented by a second volume, to be published in 2017, which includes a book-length introduction, textual notes and analytic indices.

Abstract

Exploring the intricacy and complexity of Walter Pater’s prose, Transfigured World challenges traditional approaches to Pater and shows precise ways in which the form of his prose expresses its content. Carolyn Williams asserts that Pater’s aestheticism and his historicism should be understood as dialectically interrelated critical strategies, inextricable from each other in practice. Williams discusses the explicit and embedded narratives that play a crucial role in Pater’s aesthetic criticism and examines the figures that compose these narratives, including rhetorical tropes, structures of argument such as genealogy, and historical or fictional personae.

Abstract

Two contributions here are seeking access to the continuation of a temporarily buried Petersburg tradition in a European space on the example of the German-speaking poet Henry von Heiseler. That "his" Puškin is to be understood in this frame of interpretation as a cultural symbol with identity-forming and dialogical potential and not just as a "translat" reflects the positions of the said translator.

Abstract

This book explores Walter Benjamin, Siegfried Kracauer and Alexander Kluge's analyses of the role that a rejuvenation in the capacity for imagination can play in encouraging us to reconceive the possibilities of the past, the present, and the future outside of the parameters of the status quo. The concept of imagination to which the title of the book refers is not a strictly defined, stable concept, but rather a term which is employed to refer to a capacity that facilitates both an active, creative relationship to one's environment, and a process of mediation between the outside world and one's own experiences and memories. Through a detailed analysis of their engagements with subjects that span a broad range of historical and thematic contexts (including topics as diverse as literature, children's play, film, photography, history, and television) the book charts the extent to which the concept of imagination plays a central role in Benjamin, Kracauer, and Kluge's explorations of a mode of perception and experience which could serve as a catalyst for the creation and sustenance of a desire for a different kind of future.

Abstract

Diktatur und Krieg haben den künstlerischen Aktivismus in Mitteleuropa, wie er mit dem Dadaismus begann, vernichtet. Durch den Strom des Exils verschob er sich auf den amerikanischen Kontinent. Dieser Band beleuchtet den Avantgardismus im frühen 20. Jahrhundert anhand der Fotografie, des Tanzes, surrealistischer Gruppierungen etc., um sich dann dessen Weiterentwicklungen bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit zuzuwenden. Die Beiträger_innen, darunter Theoretiker und Künstlerinnen aus New York, lassen die kulturellen Differenzen zwischen Europa und den USA verstehbar werden und zeigen, dass Avantgarde und politischer Aktivismus aufs Engste zusammengehören.
