Tales of Storytelling

Modern French Short Fiction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Tales of Storytelling by Richard Shryock Book Resume:

Embedded narrative is a privileged formal aspect of literature because norms of representation - and often reception - are themselves depicted. This work focuses on the exchange depicted between embedding and embedded narratives and how this exchange participates with other aspects of the text and with the socio-historical forces which ultimately frame any act of literature. The use of embedded narrative is studied in a wide variety of novels and short stories including works by Balzac, Huysmans, Zola, Gide, Camus, Duras, and Tournier.

Narration in Ninettenth-Century French Short Fiction

Modern French Short Fiction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Narration in Ninettenth-Century French Short Fiction by Peter Cogman Book Resume:

The short fiction that flourished in nineteenth-century France has attracted relatively little critical attention compared with the novel. This study focuses on some key stories by major authors of contes and nouvelles from the late 1820s to the 1890s, taking as a starting-point, aspects of narrative technique as a way of exploring not just characteristic strategies of short fiction, but also the ends to which they were put: recurrent themes, and the vision of mankind. Each chapter looks in some detail at three or four stories, referring briefly to other tales for illustration. The underlying point that emerges from this study is that the interest of a tale lies in the telling, not the events.

The Nineteenth-Century French Short Story

Modern French Short Fiction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Nineteenth-Century French Short Story by Allan Pasco Book Resume:

The 19th-Century French Short Story, by eminent scholar, Allan H. Pasco, seeks to offer a more comprehensive view of the definition, capabilities, and aims of short stories. The book examines general instances of the genre specifically in 19th-century France by recognizing their cultural context, demonstrating how close analysis of texts effectively communicates their artistry, and arguing for a distinction between middling and great short stories. Where previous studies have examined the writers of short stories individually, The 19th-Century French Short Story takes a broader lens to the subject, and looks at short story writers as they grapple with the artistic, ethical, and social concerns of their day. Making use of French short story masterpieces, with reinforcing comparisons to works from other traditions, this book offers the possibility of a more adequate appreciation of the under-valued short story genre.

Beckett Before Beckett

Modern French Short Fiction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Beckett Before Beckett by Brigitte Le Juez,Ros Schwartz Book Resume:

Investigating the themes and ideas that sparked Samuel Beckett’s writing career, this valuable guide explores one of the least known periods in Beckett’s early life. Having just returned from Paris where he had met James Joyce, Beckett’s brief academic career at Trinity College is detailed through a student’s extensive notes from modern French lectures delivered in 1930 and 1931. Outlining Beckett’s opinions and thoughts during a formative intellectual period, many important questions are explored, such as How did he define the modern novel of his day? What should literature strive to achieve? and What should literature avoid? Revealing the authors that he studied, praised, and criticized—including Racine, Flaubert, Balzac, Gide, Stendahl, and Dostoyevsky—this informative study of his early teachings examine his preferences as a reader and the literary theories he was developing that later influenced his novels and drama. The many arguments discussed in this perceptive history provide an understanding of the intellectual basis of modernism and spotlight a previously unstudied stage in life of one of the greatest writers of the 20th century.
