  • Emperors and Imperial Discourse in Italy, c. 1300-1500

    New Perspectives

    by Collectif ...
    series Collection de l'École française de Rome
    Describing the Holy Roman Empire after 1250 as a hopeless dream or an empty formula only Roman in name, historians have long minimized the impact of the imperial presence in late-medieval Italy. The nationalist historiography, on which we still largely depend, presented the Empire as alien to the very essence of humanism and modernity. Associating humanism with republicanism, scholars silently ... Read more

  • Ethics of Alterity, Confrontation and Responsibility in 19th- to 21st-Century British literature

    by Collectif ...
    series Horizons anglophones
    Over the last few decades, in the wake of the ‘Ethical Turn’, contemporary literature has been examined through the prism of the ethics of alterity. Yet, this may not be consistently the case with Victorian and Modernist literature, since relatively few of the authors of those periods have elicited such critical and theoretical scrutiny. The articles in this volume set off to re-read Victorian and ... Read more

  • Modernism and Unreadability

    by Collectif ...
    series Horizons anglophones
    Questioning “Modernism and Unreadability” means exploring Modernism from the perspective of one of its most problematic effects: unreadability. Modernism is approached through the lens of texts known to be particularly resistant to interpretation-“ borderline” modernist texts which fall de facto under the category of the unreadable, i.e., texts which need to be “unraveled” (Barthes) rather than ...

  • Gerald Vizenor

    by Collectif ...
    series Horizons anglophones
    If Vizenor’s written work is remarkable for this constant repetition of the same excerpts, phrases, images or metaphors—a mannerism which can be quite unsettling, or even feel irritatingly complacent—, one cannot but be struck, again and again, by his very special relation to his own words and created world. Not at all gratuitously, but driven by their vital secret rhythm and internal logic, ... Read more
