Vous ne lisez pas les notes en bas de page ? Vous avez tort. Rien de plus passionnant qu’une note infrapaginale, ou marginale, ou finale car il est vrai que nos dispositifs d’annotation sont divers. Souvent c’est la note qui contient l’essentiel. C’est alors par elle qu’il faut commencer. Nous distinguons entre le texte et le paratexte mais le paratexte est aussi une autre sorte de texte. Une « frange d’incertitude » (Genette) nous permet de passer d’un régime à l’autre. Les choses deviennent intéressantes à ce moment. Imaginez la note à la place du texte, le texte à la place de la note. Votre univers bascule, vous entrez dans un monde parallèle. La littérature est le lieu où la frontière entre le texte et les notes devient indécidable. Le présent volume passe en revue les pratiques d’annotation en contexte européen et ailleurs. Il offre au lecteur une riche série « d’études de cas » où le geste de l’annotateur est observé in actu. Parmi les auteurs étudiés : Balzac, Chateaubriand, Eliot, Mallarmé, Nabokov, Proust, Rimbaud, Oliver Rolin, et bien d’autres.

You don’t read footnotes? You are mistaken. There’s nothing more passionate than a footnote, a sidenote, or an endnote. The essential part of the message is the footnote. Narratologists distinguish between texte and paratexte, but the paratexte is just a different kind of texte. A frange d’incertitude (Genette) allows one to switch from one system to another. Imagine the note in the position of the text and the text in the position of the note. Your universe switches: you enter into a parallel world. Literature is the place where the border between the text and the notes becomes undecidable. The current volume reviews annotation practices in and outside of the European context. It offers a substantial series of “case studies” to the reader, where the actions of the annotateur are observed in actu. Among the studied authors: Balzac, Chateaubriand, Eliot, Mallarmé, Nabokov, Proust, Rimbaud, Oliver Rolin, and many others.

In the present work, a legal philosopher (Angela Condello) and a literaray scholar (Tiziano Toracca) develop the idea that a comparison between law and literature must be framed starting from the modes in which law and literature function. In this sense, they read law and literature as arts of compromising characterized by an analogous and yet, at the same time, profoundly different structure. Both, in fact, mediate conflicts between norms and transgressions, and more precisely between a principle of normativity (repression), on the one hand; and a principle of counternormativity (repressed), on the other hand. Through a progression in three steps, aimed at clarifying some peculiarities of law (1) and literature (2), by referring to examples of their interaction (3), the authors finally sketch some relevant hypotheses on why a placement across these two arts of compromising suggests some theoretical itineraries on their threshold.
Kleinste Zeiteinheit, Denkfigur, mediale Praktiken
Der Band erforscht das Interventionspotential kleinster Zeiteinheiten und fragt, wie literarische, musikalische und künstlerische Momentaufnahmen und Augenblicksaufzeichnungen mit Konzepten einer sprunghaften und diskontinuierlichen Zeitwahrnehmung korrespondieren.
Diskontinuierliche und sequentielle temporäre Formen lagen lange im Streit mit der großen Form. Mittlerweile sind sie ein dominantes Muster der öffentlichen Kommunikation. Die Beiträge zeigen, inwiefern der aktuelle Erregungsdiskurs über die Tyrannei des Moments und den flüchtigen Augenblick einen historischen Index hat und immer von dem unterschwelligen Mitlaufen der Reflexion über Subjektivität begleitet ist. Es werden verschiedene Modi des sich Entziehens von Moment und Augenblick offengelegt und gezeigt, wie die Auseinandersetzungsgeschichte auf diese Unzugänglichkeit mit einem eigenen Bilddenken reagiert. Mit Beiträgen von Eva Axer, Ursula Geitner, Toni Hildebrandt, Thomas Macho u.a.
Goethes Römische Elegien und die augusteische Dichtung
Author: Jakob Gehlen
Jakob Gehlen untersucht Goethes nachitalienisches Schreibprojekt, das sich erstmals explizit in eine Gattungstradition stellt. Es ist dabei nicht mehr auf Übertragung ( translatio) oder wetteifernde Nachahmung ( aemulatio) angelegt, vielmehr nimmt es selbstbewusst, spielerisch und souverän den grenzenlosen Text-Fundus Rom für sich ein. Diese captio ist in ihrer Imperialität römisch: Sie greift gezielt Fremdes als Eigenes auf und ist zugleich unendlich integrativ. Die Römischen Elegien sind kein Beispiel für die Monumentalisierung der Antike, sondern für lebendige Metamorphose. Im erneuernden Verfügen über antike und moderne Textschichten, in der renovatio Roms, liegt dabei auch ein Gründungsmoment der weltweiten Autorität Goethes.
Joyce’s art is an art of idiosyncratic transformation, revision and recycling. More specifically, the work of his art lies in the act of creative transformation: the art of the paste that echoes Ezra Pound’s urge to make it new. The essays in this volume examine various modalities of the Joycean aesthetic metamorphosis: be it through the prism of Joyce engaging with other arts and artists, or through the prism of other arts and artists engaging with the Joycean aftermath. We have chosen the essays that best show the range of Joycean engagement with multiple artistic domains in a variety of media. Joyce’s art is multiform and protean: influenced by many, it influences many others.
Der Band führt in das lyrische Gesamtwerk von Ulrike Draesner ein. Eine Reihe von Interpretationen zu einzelnen Gedichten und Gedichtgruppen folgt seiner chronologischen Entwicklung und vermittelt so einen Überblick, lässt thematische Schwerpunkte erkennen und zeigt seine fakturiellen Besonderheiten.
Die Interpretationen verdeutlichen dabei die Verwurzelung von Draesners Lyrik in literarischen Traditionen ebenso wie den selbständigen und innovativen Charakter ihrer experimentellen lyrischen Fakturen. Der Band will die Geschichte und das Gestaltungsspektrum des Werkzusammenhangs anhand von exemplarischen Gedichtinterpretationen nachzeichnen und zudem einen Beitrag zur Gegenwartsliteraturforschung im Allgemeinen wie zur Lyrikologie im Besonderen leisten.

The Logic of Narratives is a linguistic study of narrative discourse that contextualizes the ‘logical’ rather than the ‘stylistic’ aspect of narratives within the range of current issues in the interdisciplinary study of narratives being conducted in linguistics, philosophy, literature, cognitive science, and Artificial Intelligence. The book quantitatively analyzes naturally occurring narratives randomly selected from the British National Corpus (BNC) as well as James Joyce’s (1882-1941) The Dead (1914) and Fredrik Backman’s (1981-) A Man Called Ove (2012). Discourse Representation Theory (DRT) formalization (Kamp and Reyle, 1993) is employed and enriched with the representations and interpretations of perspective/point of view, genre differences, coherence relations, and episodes, which are called in the book Perspectival DRT (PDRT).
Embodiments at the End of Anthropocentrism
This volume offers an insight into a selection of current issues of embodiment and other related aspects, such as identity, gender, disability, or sexuality, discussed on the basis of examples from contemporary culture and social life. Inspired by Donna Haraway’s concept of the cyborg as a transgressor of boundaries, the book examines fluidity of post-human bodies – from cyber relations to others and to self, enabled by the latest technologies, through fragmented, prostheticised, monstrous or augmented body of popular culture and lifestyles, to the dis/utopian fantasies offered by literary texts – showing how difficult it still is in current culture to let go of the stable boundaries towards the post-gender world Haraway imagines.

Author: Paolo Euron
This book introduces the reader to the literary work and to an understanding of its cultural background and its specific features. In doing so, it refers to two main traditions of Western culture: one of aesthetics and the theory of art and the other of literary theory. In our postmodern world, language and artistic creation (and above all literature as the art of language) occupy a special role in understanding the human world and become existential issues. A critical attitude requires knowledge of the relevant past in order to understand what we are today. The author presents key topics, ideas, and representatives of aesthetics, theory, and the interpretation of works of art in an historical perspective, in order to explain the Western tradition with constant attention to the present condition.
Aesthetics, Theory and Interpretation of the Literary Work offers an outline of essential concepts and authors of aesthetics and theories of the literary work, presenting basic topics and ideas in their historical context and development, considering their relevance to the contemporary debate, and highlighting the specificity of the experience of the art work in our present world. The best way to approach a work of art is to enjoy it. In order to enjoy a literary work, we have to consider its correct context and its specific artistic qualities. The book is conceived as a general and enjoyable introduction to the experience of the work of art in Western culture.
Author: Joseph D. Kuzma
This work offers an exploration and critique of Blanchot’s various engagements with psychoanalysis, from the early 1950s onward. Kuzma highlights the political contours of Blanchot’s writings on Freud, Lacan, Leclaire, Winnicott, and others, ultimately suggesting a link between these writings and Blanchot’s broader attempts at rethinking the nature of human relationality, responsibility, and community. This book makes a substantive contribution to our understanding of the political and philosophical dimensions of Blanchot’s writings on madness, narcissism, and trauma, among other topics of critical and clinical relevance. Maurice Blanchot and Psychoanalysis comprises an indispensable text for anyone interested in tracing the history of psychoanalysis in post-War France.
