Summary:

In early 1749 a white woman and a black man are stranded in the wilderness of the South African interior. She is an educated woman, totally helpless in the wilds. He is a runaway slave. They know only each other. At first their relationship is guarded, poisoned by the black and white in them both. But hesitantly there emerges between them a fellowship that engulfs their most private selves, as they face the long trek back to civilisation.

Summary:

L'expédition conduite par Erik Larsson à l'intérieur du continent sud-africain se termine par un désastre : le guide se suicide, les porteurs s'enfuient, les deux Blancs qui l'avaient conçue meurent. Elisabeth Larsson reste seule survivante, au milieu de l'immense veld. Apparaît Adam, un esclave en fuite, qui a suivi le convoi de loin. Cette femme blanche, cet homme noir que tout sépare vont cheminer ensemble des mois, vers ce qu'ils appellent encore la civilisation. Mais le vrai cheminement s'accomplit en eux-mêmes à la rencontre l'un de l'autre et de l'amour qui va les unir. On retrouve dans Un instant dans le vent la même langue somptueuse, le même amour passionné de la terre africaine et la même condamnation des rigueurs de l'apartheid que dans les autres romans d'André Brink. La montée de l'amour entre ces deux êtres est une des plus belles choses qui aient été écrites. Françoise Xenakis, Le Matin.

Summary:

This book appraises André Brink’s reputation as an internationally acclaimed commentator on the enormities of the apartheid state and one of South Africa’s foremost novelists. Highlighting Brink’s enduring meditation on the writer’s responsibility to a society in a state of moral and political siege and his exemplary position in the interrogation of the subtle discursive strategies of the apartheid establishment, it refers extensively to Brink’s oeuvre, but focuses mainly on his first seven novels in English: The Ambassadors, Looking on Darkness, An Instant in the Wind, Rumours of Rain, A Dry White Season, A Chain of Voices and The Wall of the Plague. Aimed primarily at students of South Africa, it draws on postcolonial theory to examine the ideological implications of the Western aesthetic and intellectual background that nurtured Brink’s imagination, his fixation with the tragic vision, Christian theology, and existentialism, in the context of his professed political affiliations.

Summary:

In this wide ranging collection of essays, eleven literary scholars and creative writers examine authorship and authority in relation to the production and reception of cultural texts. Ranging in time from the Renaissance to the era of digital publishing, the essays invite us to reconsider the influential theories of Roland Barthes, Michel Foucault, and Pierre Bourdieu for our understanding of writers such as Philip Sidney, Thomas Hardy, Laura Riding, W.B. Yeats, Gertrude Stein, and J.M. Coetzee. Shedding new light on authority’s complex role in the generation of cultural meaning, the essays will be of interest to students and teachers of literary history and critical theory alike.

Summary:

Arianna Rondina, passionately fond of flying since a child, works in the aeronautical world. The novel is about Azzurra’s story who tenaciously follows her dream of becoming a pilot. Each of us can be the author of our own life, painting it with the colours of our heart. In fact, only listening to its voice, we can walk along the street towards joy and realization. “From Arianna’s book, the image of a cloth plotted around feelings and emotions emerges, an inlay of illusions and desires, from which the subtle and sublime eros of lost and met again lovers comes out, while surviving in the attic of memories.” - Moreno Blasi from IL FALCO LETTERARIO

Summary:

Cet ouvrage rassemble les textes des communications présentées lors du colloque de linguistique organisé à Charles V en mars 1998 par A. Deschamps et J. Guillemin-Flescher, dans le cadre des activités de l'équipe L.I.L.A. Cette rencontre, conçue comme un prolongement de la réflexion amorcée au cours du colloque sur " La notion " organisé par Marie-Line Groussier et Claude Rivière en février 1996, a rassemblé plus de 160 participants. Le thème retenu : " Les Opérations de détermination : Quantification et Qualification " avait pour objectif de mettre en lumière l'importance des opérations fondamentales qui sont en jeu, non seulement dans la détermination nominale mais dans un ensemble de catégories grammaticales (temporalité, aspectualité, modalité, intersubjectivité...). La confrontation de langues très diverses a permis de mettre en évidence le rôle central de ces concepts et de montrer comment des opérations similaires sont à l'œuvre dans des structures variées. Les marqueurs spécifiques qui les représentent peuvent présenter des points communs sans pour autant se recouvrir complètement.

Summary:

From the outset, South Africa's history has been marked by division and conflict along racial and ethnic lines. From 1948 until 1994, this division was formalized in the National Party's policy of apartheid. Because apartheid intruded on every aspect of private and public life, South African literature was preoccupied with the politics of race and social engineering. Since the release from prison of Nelson Mandela in 1990, South Africa has been a new nation-in-the-making, inspired by a nonracial idealism yet beset by poverty and violence. South African writers have responded in various ways to Njabulo Ndebele's call to "rediscover the ordinary." The result has been a kaleidoscope of texts in which evolving cultural forms and modes of identity are rearticulated and explored. An invaluable guide for general readers as well as scholars of African literary history, this comprehensive text celebrates the multiple traditions and exciting future of the South African voice. Although the South African Constitution of 1994 recognizes no fewer than eleven official languages, English has remained the country's literary lingua franca. This book offers a narrative overview of South African literary production in English from 1945 to the postapartheid present. An introduction identifies the most interesting and noteworthy writing from the period. Alphabetical entries provide accurate and objective information on genres and writers. An appendix lists essential authors published before 1945.

Summary:

For twenty years, England and France have been at war. Now the war has come home… On a sunny July day in 1815, Plymouth Sound is crowded with boats vying for a view of England’s great battleship HMS Bellerophon. For aboard the vessel is the stout little Frenchman who threw the world into chaos. In London, some people clamor for Napoleon’s execution, others for his exile, and still others for a civil trial on English soil. For one humble London detective, the debate has turned deadly. Bow Street Runner Henry Morton has a murder to solve--and Napoleon himself is at the heart of the matter. The victim is a Frenchwoman, the mistress of a count. Soon Morton is racing through a demimonde of French expatriates, Bonapartists, fanatical Royalists, and one very dangerous, drunken petty crook. From an exotic London brothel to a scene of carnage on a Dartmoor farm, the detective enters a covert war over Napoleon’s fate. And amid the betrayal, deception, and murder, Morton will face a waterloo of his own.

Summary:

Nobel Laureate and the first author to win the Booker Prize twice, J.M. Coetzee is perhaps the world's leading living novelist writing in English. Including an international roster of world leading critics and novelists, and drawing on new research, this innovative book analyses the whole range of Coetzee's work, from his most recent novels through his memoirs and critical writing. It offers a range of perspectives on his relationship with the historical, political, cultural and social context of South Africa. It also contextualises Coetzee's work in relation to his literary influences, colonial and post-colonial history, the Holocaust and colonial genocides, the 'politics' and meaning of the Nobel prize in South Africa and Coetzee's very public move from South Africa to Australia. Including a major unpublished essay by leading South African novelist André Brink, this book offers the most up-to-date study of Coetzee's work currently available.

Summary:

Martin Mynhardt, c'est l'homme " qui a tout " : brillante situation, jolie femme, séduisante maîtresse, deux beaux enfants, sécurité... C'est l'Afrikaner type, l'homme blanc sûr de lui et des siens, totalement aveugle à la réalité qui l'entoure. Et pourtant, il suffira de trois jours à peine pour que l'univers de Martin bascule et s'effondre. Ceux que Martin aimait le plus, confondant tranquillement amour et possession, amour et domination, s'éloignent de lui dans les terribles remous de la réalité politique sud-africaine... André Brink a situé Rumeurs de pluie à la veille des émeutes de Soweto. A travers Martin, c'est une remarquable image de la société sud-africaine blanche qu'il nous donne, dans son équilibre si précaire. Derrière la beauté des images, par-delà la somptuosité du décor et de très belles scènes d'amour, il s'agit d'un réquisitoire implacable contre l'apartheid, comme les autres romans du grand écrivain André Brink : Au plus noir de la nuit, Un instant dans le vent, Une saison blanche et sèche (Prix Médicis étranger), Un turbulent silence.
