Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Les passagers du Roissy-Express by François Maspero Book Resume:

Un jour de printemps, au temps des cerises, François et Anaïk partent de Roissy, tête de la ligne B du RER, pour une croisière au long cours. Direction la station terminus, Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuse. 38 gares, 50 kilomètres de rails. Ils logeront sur place. Elle prendra des photos. Il écrira. Donner une épaisseur à des images, des couleurs, des voix, des êtres, au-delà du chaos apparent des banlieues, déchiffrer cette géographie, retrouver l'histoire et lire le présent de ceux qui l'habitent, tel est leur projet. Cités et grands ensembles, zones pavillonnaires, friches industrielles, jardins ouvriers, stades, tags, un passé de deux mille ans et quel avenir ? Un voyage comme doit être tout voyage: simplement, à la rencontre de la vie.

Roissy Express by François Maspero Book Resume:

Accompanied by photographer Anaik Frantz, Francois Maspero embarked on a journey along the RER, the express subway which leads through the Paris suburbs. Getting off the train at each stop, he and Frantz present a picture of daily life in France which tourists seldom see: a world where names don't make sense, where immigrants from Burkino Faso live in run-down tower-blocks called Debussy on the avenue Karl Marx, their children dodging the police between the lycee Jules Valles and the Yuri Gagarin youth-club; a world where there are still memories of the Commune, the Popular Front or the camp at Drancy from where French officials sent a hundred thousand Jews to Auschwitz; a world where no one is a racist, but National Front posters are everywhere. Maspero's aim is to put this world back on the map.

Discursive Geographies

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Discursive Geographies by Jeanne Garane Book Resume:

The present collection of essays follows in the wake of recent work in cultural geography challenging the idea that maps are scientifically neutral entities, or that space, unlike time, is immobile. In defining space, place and geography as forms of textuality, the essays collected in this volume examine the ways in which postcolonial and metropolitan literary and filmic texts in French can at once inscribe and produce place and space, and thereby participate in forms of "discursive geographies." Contributors: François Bon; Alexandre Dauge-Roth; Habiba Deming; Zakaria Fatih; Jeanne Garane; Patricia Geesey; Greg Hainge; Sirène Harb; Jean-Luc Joly; Chantal Kalisa; Michel Laronde; Valérie Loichot; Mary McCullough; Michael O'Riley; Pascale Perraudin; Walter Putnam; Antoine Stéphani; Abdourahman A.

Art, culture et territoires ruraux

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Art, culture et territoires ruraux by Michel Duvigneau Book Resume:

Le territoire rural aujourd'hui, ce n'est pas simplement du vert. Ses habitants, vieux natifs ou nouveaux résidents, captent aux mêmes sources que les citadins modes et modes de pensée. L'art et la culture peuvent s'enrichir d'un ancrage dans ces territoires qu'animent aujourd'hui des femmes et des hommes engagés dans les champs divers de l'économie, de l'environnement, du social, du culturel. Partout dans notre pays, des créateurs, des praticiens amateurs, font circuler des médiations qui font vibrer l'imaginaire sur ces territoires. Ce livre en donne de multiples exemples. Il cherche à montrer que ces initiatives, parfois méconnues, peu médiatisées, si elles ne se limitent pas à un activisme superficiel mais s'ancrent dans la réflexion politique ouverte par de nombreuses disciplines, peuvent contribuer fortement à structurer les territoires. Elles donnent alors sens à ce qu'on peut appeler une démocratie artistique et culturelle.

Transnational French Studies

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Transnational French Studies by Alec G. Hargreaves,Charles Forsdick,David Murphy Book Resume:

The 2007 manifesto in favour of a “Littérature-monde en français” has generated new debates in both “francophone” and “postcolonial” studies. Praised by some for breaking down the hierarchical division between “French” and “Francophone” literatures, the manifesto has been criticized by others for recreating that division through an exoticizing vision that continues to privilege the publishing industry of the former colonial métropole. Does the manifesto signal the advent of a new critical paradigm destined to render obsolescent those of “francophone” and/or “postcolonial” studies? Or is it simply a passing fad, a glitzy but ephemeral publicity stunt generated and promoted by writers and publishing executives vis-à-vis whom scholars and critics should maintain a skeptical distance? Does it offer an all-embracing transnational vista leading beyond the confines of postcolonialism or reintroduce an incipient form of neocolonialism even while proclaiming the end of the centre/periphery divide? In addressing these questions, leading scholars of “French”, “Francophone” and “postcolonial” studies from around the globe help to assess the wider question of the evolving status of French Studies as a transnational field of study amid the challenges of globalization.

Out of the Shadows

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Out of the Shadows by Francois Maspero Book Resume:

This account documents the work of Gerda Taro, one of history's most noteworthy war photographers, and the first female war photographer to die in action. It reflecting on the past of the woman born Gerta Pohorylle: her escape as a German Jew from the Nazi party, her introduction to Robert Capa, and her adoption of an alias. Vividly capturing the extraordinary figures she knew and lived with--from Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn to Louis Aragon--this record also highlights her assertion of political, sexual, and personal liberties, and demonstrates how her steadfast courage and eventual death made her a martyr of the antifascist movement.

Balkans-Transit

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Balkans-Transit by François Maspero Book Resume:

«Je marchais dans le quartier turc de Veliko Tirnovo la bulgare, je parlais à des Serbes de Kumanovo la macédonienne, à des Albanais du Kosovo yougoslave, et l'interrogation était là, lancinante : est-il possible que "ça" arrive aussi ici ? Et dans ce cas, croyez-moi : "ça" arrivera bien aussi un jour chez nous...»Cinq ans de périples dans les Balkans : Albanie, Macédoine. Grèce, Bulgarie, Roumanie... Et la Bosnie. Parce que, dès les premières rencontres, on lui a dit : «Nous sommes ici au cœur de l'Europe.»C'est le dernier de ces voyages que François Maspero relate ici : de l'Adriatique à la mer Noire en compagnie de Klavdij Sluban, photographe. «On débarque du train, et solitaires, perdus dans cette foule, il faut des heures, des jours avant de comprendre. Il faut marcher, écouter, s'imprégner...»Les paysages et les pierres parlent, les voix des hommes s'entrecroisent. Le regard des voyageurs suit les traces de l'Histoire : anciens empires, nationalismes, sociétés communistes... Autant de personnages que dans un roman, et parfois plus attachants. «C'est peut-être cela, le pari du voyage ? Au-delà des émerveillements ou des angoisses de l'inconnu, retrouver le sentiment d'être de la même famille. Parfois ça rate. Parfois même, ça tourne mal. Mais le pari vaut d'être fait, non ?»

Connecting Histories

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Connecting Histories by Bonnie Thomas Book Resume:

The Francophone Caribbean boasts a trove of literary gems. Distinguished by innovative, elegant writing and thought-provoking questions of history and identity, this exciting body of work demands scholarly attention. Its authors treat the traumatic legacies of shared and personal histories pervading Caribbean experience in striking ways, delineating a path towards reconciliation and healing. The creation of diverse personal narratives�encompassing autobiography, autofiction (heavily autobiographical fiction), travel writing, and reflective essay�remains characteristic of many Caribbean writers and offers poignant illustrations of the complex interchange between shared and personal pasts and how they affect individual lives. Through their historically informed autobiography, the authors in this study�Maryse Cond�, Gis�le Pineau, Patrick Chamoiseau, Edwidge Danticat, and Dany Laferri�re�offer compelling insights into confronting, coming to terms with, and reconciling their past. The employment of personal narratives as the vehicle to carry out this investigation points to a tension evident in these writers� reflections, which constantly move between the collective and the personal. As an inescapably complex network, their past extends beyond the notion of a single, private life. These contemporary authors from Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Haiti intertwine their personal memories with reflections on the histories of their homelands and on the European and North American countries they adopt through choice or necessity. They reveal a multitude of deep connections that illuminate distinct Francophone Caribbean experiences.

Adhesion between polymers and concrete / Adhésion entre polymères et béton

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Adhesion between polymers and concrete / Adhésion entre polymères et béton by H. R. Sasse,Laboratoire central des ponts et chaussées,RILEM Tech. Comm. 52-Resin Adherence to Concrete Book Resume:

Preface Adhesion is a phenomenon architects and civil engineers are not very familiar with. In other disciplines knowledge about surface properties and the background of bonding energies is also far from satisfactory; nevertheless there are many important· applications in concrete engineering, where adhesion is necessary for success and durability. These include: - coating and painting - repair of concrete surfaces - bonding of fresh to old concrete - crack injection - glueing of precast elements - glueing of steel to concrete, etc. In 1981 RILEM established the technical committee 52-RAC 'Resin Adherence to Concrete'. The main aims of the committee's work were - to collect research results and practical experiences - to initiate and coordinate research programs - to develop, on a scientific base, test methods for field and for laboratory purposes. One of the results of the committee's work is a state-of-the-art report, which will be presented orally as a General Report at the International Symposium ISAP '86, and will be printed either in the RILEM journal Materials and Structures or separately. Several test recommendations have been elaborated and will be prepared as drafts for the participants ofISAP '86. These are: - direct tensile test - pull-off test - direct shear test - slant shear test - four-point bending test - dynamic loading test - thermal compatibility test (two versions) - injectibility test.

Georges Perec’s Geographies

Georges Perec’s Geographies by Charles Forsdick,Andrew Leak ,Richard Phillips Book Resume:

Georges Perec, novelist, filmmaker and essayist, was one of the most inventive and original writers of the twentieth century. A fascinating aspect of his work is its intrinsically geographical nature. With major projects on space and place, Perec’s writing speaks to a variety of geographical, urban and architectural concerns, both in a substantive way, including a focus on cities, streets, homes and apartments, and in a methodological way, experimenting with methods of urban exploration and observation, classification, enumeration and taxonomy.

The Real and Its Double

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Real and Its Double by Clément Rosset Book Resume:

As a maverick philosopher unafraid of challenging the ideas and methods of his colleagues, Clément Rosset's work attempts to connect sometimes-lofty academic philosophy with the concerns of everyday life. For decades, he has worked to illuminate some of the most obscure metaphysical issues, often using popular film, theatre, novels, and comic books to illustrate his ideas, and as a result he has gained a reputation as both a happy sage and a singular mind. In The Real and Its Double, expertly translated by Chris Turner, Rosset takes on the question of the Real and humanity's natural ability to sidestep and bypass it. The key to this type of evasion, Rosset suggests, is a certain form of oracular thinking that lies buried in the origins of Western metaphysics and psychology. Here, Rosset eschews the prolix and paradoxical psychological theories of Derrida and Lacan in favor of an exceptional lucidity that speaks to his Nietzschean-tragic love of life. If good philosophy can be defined as expressing complicated things in a simple way, then here, in one of his best-known works, Rosset has proven himself a master.

L'Honneur de Saint Arnaud

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

L'Honneur de Saint Arnaud by François Maspero Book Resume:

Cette chronique conte l'édifiante histoire d'un maréchal de France, de son vivant couvert d'honneurs : pour Sainte-Beuve sa " moralité essentielle " était un exemple pour la jeunesse. En réalité, massacres et appât du lucre furent les ressorts de sa vie : pour Victor Hugo, " ce général avait les états de service d'un chacal ". Il construit sa carrière sur la conquête de l'Algérie. Il applique la stratégie de la terre brûlée, affamant les populations, et des " enfumades ", exterminant les habitants des villages : " Je me sentais un peu boucher. " Lors du coup d'État du 2 décembre, il massacre les Parisiens au canon. Vainqueur à la bataille de l'Alma, il meurt, emporté par une diarrhée incoercible, dans une guerre de Crimée qui vise – déjà –; à établir un nouvel ordre mondial. On lui fait des funérailles nationales. Mais c'est aussi la chronique d'une face noire de l'histoire de France. Y figurent les souverains, Charles X, Louis-Philippe et Napoléon III ; des ministres, Guizot, Thiers, Morny ; des généraux, Bugeaud, Cavaignac et bien d'autres ; d'illustres penseurs, Veuillot, Tocqueville. Et bien entendu, défendant sa terre, la grande et implacable figure de l'émir Abd el-Kader. François Maspero est l'auteur de plusieurs livres publiés aux éditions du Seuil, en particulier Le Sourire du chat et Les Passagers du Roissy-Express. Il est également traducteur.

Savage Tales

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Savage Tales by Linda Goddard Book Resume:

"An original study of Gauguin's writings, unfolding their central role in his artistic practice and negotiation of colonial identity. As a French artist who lived in Polynesia, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) occupies a crucial position in histories of European primitivism. This is the first book devoted to his wide-ranging literary output, which included journalism, travel writing, art criticism, and essays on aesthetics, religion, and politics. It analyzes his original manuscripts, some of which are richly illustrated, reinstating them as an integral component of his art. The seemingly haphazard, collage-like structure of Gauguin's manuscripts enabled him to evoke the "primitive" culture that he celebrated, while rejecting the style of establishment critics. Gauguin's writing was also a strategy for articulating a position on the margins of both the colonial and the indigenous communities in Polynesia; he sought to protect Polynesian society from "civilization" but remained implicated in the imperialist culture that he denounced. This critical analysis of his writings significantly enriches our understanding of the complexities of artistic encounters in the French colonial context."--Publisher's description.

Figures of the Pre-Freudian Unconscious from Flaubert to Proust

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Figures of the Pre-Freudian Unconscious from Flaubert to Proust by Michael Finn Book Resume:

An original, wide-ranging contribution to the study of French writing in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this book examines the ways in which the unconscious was understood in literature in the years before Freud. Exploring the influence of medical and psychological discourse over the existence and/or potential nature of the unconscious, Michael Finn discusses the resistance of feminists opposing medical diagnoses of the female brain as the seat of the unconscious, the hypnotism craze of the 1880s and the fascination, in fiction, with dual personality and posthypnotic crimes. The heart of the study explores how the unconscious inserts itself into the writing practice of Flaubert, Maupassant and Proust. Through the presentation of scientific evidence and quarrels about the psyche Michael Finn is able to show the work of such writers in a completely new light.

Reframing Difference

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Reframing Difference by Carrie Tarr Book Resume:

This is the first major study of two overlapping strands of contemporary French cinema, "cinéma beur" (films by young directors of Maghrebi immigrant origin) and "cinéma de banlieue" (films set in France's disadvantaged outer-city estates). Carrie Tarr's insightful account draws on a wide range of films, from directors such as Mehdi Charef, Mathieu Kassowitz and Djamel Bensalah. Foregrounding such issues as the quest for identity, the negotiation of space and the recourse to memory and history, she argues that these films challenge and reframe the symbolic spaces of French culture, addressing issues of ethnicity and difference which are central to today's debates about what it means to be French.

Waltzing with Brando

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Waltzing with Brando by Bernard Judge Book Resume:

Waltzing with Brando is the story of a young Los Angeles architect who found himself, quite unexpectedly, living on an unpopulated atoll in the South Pacific with his client, Marlon Brando. Bernard Judge recounts his life changing experience while discovering the culture of Polynesia and Tahiti in the early 70's, before mass tourism, electrification and the automobile changed everything. The book is filled with amusing anecdotes about his famous client. It exposes Marlon Brando the man, not the actor, his foibles and eccentricities and regales the reader with Brando's ridiculous exploits with women. It is also a narrative about Tetiaroa, Brandon's private atoll, about living in nature without despoiling the environment. Questions are asked. Should a hotel be built? What are the consequences? It tells of how Brando and his architect came to an understanding, an appreciation for the atoll's archeology, its ecology, and the interdependence of its marine life, sea birds and nesting turtle grounds. It is an unusual convergence of adventure, of reaching for a dream, and a compelling love story richly told and illustrated with beautiful historic photographs of the period.

France in Flux

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

France in Flux by Ari J. Blatt,Edward Welch Book Resume:

The look and feel of metropolitan France has been a notable preoccupation of French literary and visual culture since the 1980s. Numerous writers, filmmakers and photographers have been drawn to articulate France's contrasting spatial qualities, from infrastructural installations such as roads, rail lines and ports, to peri-urban residential developments and isolated rural enclaves. In doing so, they explore how the country's acute sense of national identity has been both asserted and challenged in topographic terms. This wide-ranging collection of essays explores how the contemporary concern with space in France has taken shape across a range of media, from recent cinema, documentary filmmaking and photographic projects through to television drama and contemporary fiction, and examines what it reveals about the state of the nation in a post-colonial and post-industrial age. The impact of global flows of capital, trade and migration can be mapped through attention to the specificities of place and topography. Investigation of liminal locations, from seaboard cities and abandoned industrial sites to refugee camps and peasant smallholdings, interrogates the assertion of a national territory (and, by extension, a national identity) through the figure of the hexagon, and highlights the fluidities, instabilities and lines of flight which render it increasingly unsettled.

The Lights of Pointe-Noire

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Lights of Pointe-Noire by Alain Mabanckou Book Resume:

Finalist for the Man Booker International Prize 2015 Alain Mabanckou left Congo in 1989, at the age of twenty-two, not to return until a quarter of a century later. When at last he comes home to Pointe-Noire, a bustling port town on Congo's south-eastern coast, he finds a country that in some ways has changed beyond recognition: the cinema where, as a child, Mabanckou gorged on glamorous American culture has become a Pentecostal temple, and his secondary school has been re-named in honour of a previously despised colonial ruler. But many things remain unchanged, not least the swirling mythology of Congolese culture which still informs everyday life in Pointe-Noire. Mabanckou though, now a decorated French-Congolese writer and esteemed professor at UCLA, finds he can only look on as an outsider at the place where he grew up. As he delves into his childhood, into the life of his departed mother and into the strange mix of belonging and absence that informs his return to Congo, Mabanckou slowly builds a stirring exploration of the way home never leaves us, however long ago we left home.

Everyday Life

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Everyday Life by Michael Sheringham Book Resume:

The notion of the everyday is at the heart of modern French cultural and Anglo-American cultural studies. Since the 1960s numerous writers, artists, philosophers, and social theorists have tried to home in on the patterns and rhythms of our daily activities. This book provides a detailed map of this territory, linking the pioneering work of such key figures as Georges Perec and Michel de Certeau, to currents in Surrealism, ethnography, fiction, film, andphotography.

Samuel Beckett and Cinema

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Samuel Beckett and Cinema by Anthony Paraskeva Book Resume:

In 1936, Samuel Beckett wrote a letter to the Soviet film director Sergei Eisenstein expressing a desire to work in the lost tradition of silent film. The production of Beckett's Film in 1964, on the cusp of his work as a director for stage and screen, coincides with a widespread revival of silent film in the period of cinema's modernist second wave. Drawing on recently published letters, archival material and production notebooks, Samuel Beckett and Cinema is the first book to examine comprehensively the full extent of Beckett's engagement with cinema and its influence on his work for stage and screen. The book situates Beckett within the context of first and second wave modernist filmmaking, including the work of figures such as Vertov, Keaton, Lang, Epstein, Flaherty, Dreyer, Godard, Bresson, Resnais, Duras, Rogosin and Hitchcock. By examining the parallels between Beckett's methods, as a writer-director, and particular techniques, such as the embodied presence of the camera, the use of asynchronous sound, and the cross-pollination of theatricality and cinema, as well as the connections between his collaborators and the nouvelle vague, the book reveals how Beckett's aesthetic is fundamentally altered by his work for the screen, and his formative encounters with modernist film culture.

How It Is

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

How It Is by Samuel Beckett Book Resume:

Published in French in 1961, and in English in 1964, How It Is is a novel in three parts, written in short paragraphs, which tell (abruptly, cajolingly, bleakly) of a narrator lying in the dark, in the mud, repeating his life as he hears it uttered - or remembered - by another voice. Told from within, from the dark, the story is tirelessly and intimately explicit about the feelings that pervade his world, but fragmentary and vague about all else therein or beyond. Together with Molloy, How It Is counts for many readers as Beckett's greatest accomplishment in the novel form. It is also his most challenging narrative, both stylistically and for the pessimism of its vision, which continues the themes of reduced circumstance, of another life before the present, and the self-appraising search for an essential self, which were inaugurated in the great prose narratives of his earlier trilogy. she sits aloof ten yards fifteen yards she looks up looks at me says at last to herself all is well he is working my head where is my head it rests on the table my hand trembles on the table she sees I am not sleeping the wind blows tempestuous the little clouds drive before it the table glides from light to darkness darkness to light Edited by Edouard Magessa O'Reilly

La Plage noire

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

La Plage noire by François Maspero Book Resume:

Qu'attend Alberto sur la plage noire ? La première tempête de l'automne. Sa fille, chaque soir, sur le chemin de l'école. Le retour des pêcheurs dans la nuit. Des nouvelles de la femme qu'il aime, de son pays, du monde. La vérité sur l'assassinat de son meilleur ami. Un impossible visa pour la France. Ou les hommes qui, peut-être, viendront l'arrêter.Cela se passe dans un pays dont le nom importe peu. Un de ces pays qui, ayant subi une dictature - qu'importe aussi laquelle précisément - vivent désormais ce que, dans les journaux, on appelle «le difficile apprentissage de la démocratie». Un de ces pays qui forment la banlieue du monde, prise au filet de frontières de plus en plus infranchissables.Toute sa vie - en prison, en exil, à son retour - Alberto a résisté et s'est battu. Mais y a-t-il encore aujourd'hui une place pour les gens qui, comme lui, ont sauvé la mémoire et rêvé l'avenir? Qui, comme lui, «ne peuvent s'empêcher d'être toujours un peu ailleurs»?

Le Figuier

Les Passagers Du Roissy Express [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Le Figuier by François Maspero Book Resume:

Aux premières pages, un atelier d'imprimerie, dans une ruelle proche de la Seine. Un homme y travaille, solitaire. Il édite de la poésie. Il en traduit, des langues les plus diverses. Il en écrit : poète amoureux de son labeur, des mots qu'il compose, qui fait "couler du soleil dans le plomb". Dans son passé, des images d'Europe buissonnière, de Grand Nord, de guerre d'Espagne. Et bien d'autres : comment les démêler ? Autour de lui, d'autres vies, tournées vers l'avenir. Ce livre commence en 1957, sur fond de guerre d'Algérie, et s'achève dix ans plus tard en Amérique centrale. François Maspero, qui fut ces années-là libraire, éditeur et directeur de la revue Partisans, aurait pu rédiger la chronique d'un acteur et d'un témoin. Pourtant, ce n'est pas une autobiographie de plus. Certes, l'auteur y parle de ce qu'il a vécu et partagé. Mais son roman est avant tout un travail d'écrivain. Pas de jugements, de bilans, de portraits à clef ou de règlements de comptes. Ce qui importe pour lui, c'est de dire sa tendresse physique pour des êtres, leurs gestes, leurs idées, leurs rêves. De dire le goût qui lui est resté de choses, de paysages, de lumières. De retrouver un sourire, de revivre sans en rien renier une joie ou un refus. De tisser, en conteur, sur cette trame première, une histoire qui se noue lentement jusqu'à la rupture finale. Et de chercher simplement, comme il l'a déjà fait dans Le Sourire du Chat, le sens de certains mots : ce sens, usé ou perdu, au lecteur de le retrouver avec lui, au détour d'une page.
