Die Schachnovelle ist eine Novelle von Stefan Zweig, die er zwischen 1938 und 1941 im brasilianischen Exil schrieb. Es ist sein letztes und zugleich bekanntestes Werk. Im Zentrum der Handlung steht die Konfrontation der psychischen Abgründe, die ein Gefangener der Gestapo erlebt hat, mit der oberflächlichen Lebenswelt wohlhabender Reisender in der Rahmenhandlung. Das Schachspiel spielt anfangs nur die Rolle einer bloßen Unterhaltung bzw. eines einträglichen Sports und erhält erst durch die Figur des Gefangenen Dr. B., der sich während seiner Haftzeit intensiv mit Schach beschäftigt hat, seine tiefere Bedeutung.

This book presents the first complete overview in English of the prose fiction of Georges Perec, recognised since his death in 1982 as one of the most influential and innovative French writers of his generation. In particular, it explores in depth the nature of the numerous, and often astonishing, games and ludic devices which he used to generate and develop his material and to draw his readers into a playful interaction with his texts. Moreover this study situates Perec’s writings as the culmination of a significant tradition in twentieth-century French writing, that of ludic fiction, whose evolution is traced from Roussel to Ricardou and the Nouveau Roman and Oulipo movements. In so doing, it seeks to answer two important questions: why did ludic writing reach such particular prominence in the 1960s and 1970s? What made its appeal for Georges Perec so special that it came to shape his whole approach to writing, and led this orphan of war and holocaust to invest literary game-playing with such a profound personal and cultural importance?

La carrière de Jean Dréville (1906-1997) débute en 1928 par le tournage du premier making of de l'histoire, Autour de l'Argent, documentaire sur la genèse de L'Argent, film de Marcel L'Herbier. Sa rencontre avec Noël-Noël donnera lieu à des films célèbres comme La Cage aux Rossignols (1945) qui inspirera Christophe Barratier pour Les Choristes (2004). Dans ses chroniques de mœurs, il met en scène quelques " monstres " du cinéma français : Charles Variel, Pierre Fresnay, Louis Jouvet. Tournés avec des moyens modestes et des comédiens quasiment inconnus, ses films de guerre (dont Normandie Niemen), frappent par leur fraîcheur et leur véracité. La Reine Margot (1954) avec la jeune Jeanne Moreau, ou La Fayette avec Michel Le Royer et Orson Welles (1963), sont en revanche des superproductions ambitieuses, à grand spectacle et gros budget. Dans les années 1950, la Nouvelle Vague a dénigré cet éclectisme en le rangeant sous le vocable infamant de " qualité française ". Méconnaissant, ou niant, les qualités esthétiques et les prouesses techniques de Jean Dréville ; refusant, au profit de la notion d'auteur, l'effacement du directeur d'acteurs derrière le jeu de ceux qu'il dirige, Les Cahiers du cinéma dénoncent " la neutralité malveillante qui tolère un cinéma médiocre, une critique prudente et un public hébété ". La guerre prend fin dans les années 1980, quand les jeunes Turcs apaisés sont suffisamment assurés de leur position pour rendre hommage à leurs précurseurs. Réalisateur d'une quarantaine de films en quarante ans, jean Dréville, amoureux du cinéma des origines, a consacré les dernières années de sa vie à restaurer des œuvres mythiques du cinéma muet, parmi lesquelles le Napoléon d'Abel Gance et L'Inhumaine de Marcel L'Herbier. Patrick Glâtre propose ici une relecture critique de cette œuvre méconnue et essentielle de l'histoire du cinéma français. Le livre est présenté par la comédienne Valérie Dréville qui, en quelques lignes, rend un hommage émouvant à son père.

Robert Lebel, French art critic and collector, was instrumental in rendering Marcel Duchamp’s often hermetic life, art, and ideas accessible to a wider public across Europe and the United States, principally with his 1959 publication Sur Marcel Duchamp, the first monograph and catalogue raisonné devoted to the artist. Duchamp was a willing partner in the book’s creation. In fact, his active participation in both its conception and layout was so substantial that the book is considered part of the artist’s oeuvre. But the project took six years to complete. The trials, tribulations, quarrels, and machinations that plagued the production, publication, and publicity of Sur Marcel Duchamp are the focus of this correspondence between two lifelong friends. Translated and printed in full together for the first time, and including the original French texts, these letters, postcards, and telegrams from the collection of the Getty Research Institute offer uncensored access to the evolution of the relationship between Lebel and Duchamp from December 1946 to April 1967. They provide valuable information about their daily activities as well as those of friends and colleagues, vital details concerning their various collective projects, and illuminating insights into their thinking about art and life. These documents, witty and sincere, bear witness to the art of friendship and a friendship in art.
