Marivaux is among the most perfomed of all French playwrights, and "Le Jeu de l'amour et du hasard" is his best known play. The play combines the linguistic refinement of the eighteenth-century salons, the intellectual challenge of the dawning Enlightenment, and the imaginative fancy of the Italian actors who first brought it to life. In Marivaux's own day he was accused of writing in a style seen as affected. Today his linguistic subtlety is perceived as being among his great qualities, though it makes his work particularly difficult for the non-native speaker of French. This edition offers an introduction which elucidates the themes of the play by situating them within the wider context of Marivaux's writing, and notes which clarify the originality of Marivaux's style.

All over the world, in the most varied contexts, contemporary theatre is a rich source for increasing the visibility of communities generally perceived by others as minorities, or those who see themselves as such. Whether of a linguistic, ethnic, political, social, cultural or sexual nature, the claims of minorities enjoy a privileged medium in theatre. Perhaps it is because theatre itself is linked to the notions of centre and periphery, conformism and marginality, domination and subjugation – notions that minority theatre constantly examines by staging them – that it is so sensitive to the issues of troubled and conflicted identity and able to give them a universal resonance. Among the questions raised by this volume, is that of the relationship between the particular and the more general aims of this type of theatre. How is it possible to speak to everyone, or at least to the majority, when one is representing the voice of the few? Beyond such considerations, urgent critical examination of the function and aims of minority theatre is needed. To what kind of public is such drama addressed? Does it have an exemplary nature? How is it possible to avoid the pitfalls and the dead end of ghettoization? Certain types of audience-specific theatre are examined in this context, as, for example, theatre as therapy, theatre as an educational tool, and gay theatre. Particular attention is paid to the claims of minorities within culturally and economically dominant western countries. These are some of the avenues explored by this volume which aims to answer fundamental questions such as: What is minority theatre and why does theatre, a supposedly bourgeois, if not to say elitist, art form, have such affinity with the margins? What if, particularly in contemporary society, the theatre as a form, were merely playing out its fundamentally marginal status? The authors of these essays show how different forms of minority theatre can challenge cultural consensus and homogenization, while also aspiring to universality. They also address the central question of the place and status of apparently marginal forms of theatre in the context of globalization and in doing so re-examine theatre itself as a genre. Not only do they illustrate how minority theatre can challenge the dominant paradigms that govern society, but they also suggest their own more flexible and challenging frameworks for theatrical activity.

Comment ne pas penser que la critique litteraire antique a influence la creation du genre romanesque ? Le - discours panegyrique - y tient un role important. Ce livre montre comment Achille Tatios s'est approprie l'esthetique et des themes du discours en prose le plus prise par Hermogene. L'accent est mis sur les effets et les fonctions des modalites plastiques, rhetoriques, dramatiques d'un trait essentiel de cette esthetique, l'image, principe d'evidence et d'enigme. La recherche des allusions, des transpositions et de leurs jeux amene a retrouver, outre les thematiques panegyriques, une structure de fables et de recits platoniciens, combinee avec un riche heritage poetique et des constantes de la reflexion morale. La restitution du contexte litteraire et ideologique du roman permet de saisir l'originalite d'Achille Tatios, en eclairant ses choix et le sens de son comique ou de son ironie: quels sont ses rapports, notamment, avec l'atticisme, avec les ecrits de Plutarque, de Lucien ? A travers ce roman, c'est aussi un projet du genre apparu aux debuts du christianisme qui se dessine: n'implique-t-il pas une volonte de defendre et d'illustrer avec eclat la culture paienne ?"

Awe and exhiliration--along with heartbreak and mordant wit--abound in Lolita, Nabokov's most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert's obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love--love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.
