Phantoms of the Other

Phantoms of the Other PDF Book Detail Author: David Farrell Krell
Publisher: SUNY Press
ISBN: 1438454511
Category : Philosophy
Languages : en
Pages : 378

Book Description
Features a reconstruction of an unfinished text by Jacques Derrida from his most penetrating series of readings of Heidegger’s philosophy. During the 1980s Jacques Derrida wrote and published three incisive essays under the title Geschlecht,aGerman word for “generation” and “sexuality.” These essays focused on the philosophy of Martin Heidegger, taking up the rarely discussed issue of sexual difference in Heidegger’s thought. A fourth essay—actually the third in the series—was never completed and never published. In Phantoms of the Other, David Farrell Krell reconstructs this third Geschlecht on the basis of archival materials and puts it in the context of the entire series. Touching on the themes of sexual difference, poetics, politics, and criticism as practiced by Heidegger, Derrida’s unfinished third essay offers a penetrating critical analysis of Heidegger’s views on sexuality and Heidegger’s reading of the love poems of Georg Trakl, one of the greatest Expressionist poets of the German language, who died during the opening days of the First World War. “A major contribution to Derrida studies, to Heidegger studies, and to philosophy.” — Walter Brogan “This study of Derrida’s several engagements with Heidegger under the title of Geschlecht shows Krell’s remarkable scholarship, linguistic ability, philosophical insight, and subtlety at their very best.” — Charles E. Scott

Sexuality Eroticism and Gender in French and Francophone Literature

Sexuality  Eroticism  and Gender in French and Francophone Literature PDF Book Detail Author: Aaron Emmitte
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 1443832286
Category : Social Science
Languages : en
Pages : 125

Book Description
This study explores the diverse representations of sexuality, eroticism, and gender as expressed in French and Francophone literary thought – both past and present. From Françoise de Graffigny’s epistolary “refusal” of eroticism – to the challenge of nineteenth-century notions of rape in the novels of Emile Zola, Victor Hugo, and Eugène Sue – to desire and eroticism as social taboo in the surrealist works of Georges Bataille and Luis Buñuel – its historical focus demonstrates that issues of sexuality, eroticism, and gender existed at the heart of France’s literary tradition long before they became a staple in its universities. Taking a more contemporary view, it examines the notion of écriture féminine in such authors as Monique Wittig, Anne F. Garréta, Nina Bouraoui, Assia Djebar, and Luce Iragaray, and also challenges accusations of misogyny in the works of Michel Houellebecq. While glimpsing the evolution of, challenges to, and conceptions regarding sexuality, eroticism, and gender, each chapter’s author focuses on language as both the obstacle and catalyst for change. For example, feminist strategies to avoid linguistic gender markers that subvert the phallogocentric paradigm, literary portrayals of rape as a means to affect French penal code, and use of the female body as language demonstrate that these notions are not only shaped by language but that language represents the key to deconstructing and redefining them. Whether picking this up to read about familiar authors such as Hugo and Djebar or discovering Graffigny and Houellebecq for the first time, each chapter promises to shed new light on its subject matter in regards to sexuality, eroticism, and/or gender.

Book Description
De loin en loin, les dunes de sable roux s'etiraient. Le Soleil, bien que leve depuis peu, extenuait le sol d'ou s'elevaient des esprits de chaleur, ces meres des mirages qui, disait-on dans un conte du peuple du desert, appuient sur l'imaginaire des hommes comme les nuages, sur l'onde des rivieres, et leur donnent des reves d'envol... Premier livre de la tetralogie d'Aaila, avec ce premier roman sur le desert d'Yss'Bahar', ceux qui l'habitent, ceux qui le hantent et ceux qui le fuient, Alcide Demarchi nous transporte par petite touche au seuil d'une aventure nonpareille ou l'obscur et le merveilleux se cotoient, ou la princesse Aaila verra son destin bouleverse.
