Summary: The bilingualism in the work of Samuel Beckett can be defined as a figure of the passage, paradigmatic of all the other forms of transition that characterize the creative journey of this writer: at the same time author, translator, poet, playwright, director stage and director.--Classiques Garnier.

Summary: The theme of destruction touches on a key point of Marguerite Duras's creation, expressing the author's subjective relationship to a terrifying dimension inherent in language. This offers him a base from which it works, giving the writing its real significance.--Classiques Garnier.

This book offers a detailed, comparatist defense of hyperbole in the Baroque period. Focusing on Spanish and Mexican lyric ("Gongora", "Quevedo", and "Sor Juana"), English drama ("King Lear" and translations of "Seneca"), and French philosophy ("Descartes" and "Pascal"), Christopher Johnson reads Baroque hyperbole as a sophisticated, often sublime, frequently satiric means of making sense of worlds and selves in crisis and transformation. Grounding his readings of hyperbole in the history of rhetoric and literary imitation, Johnson traces how rhetorical excess acquires specific cultural, political, aesthetic, and epistemological value. Hyperboles also engages more recent critiques of hyperbolic thought (Wittgenstein, Derrida, and Cavell), as it argues that hyperbole is the primary engine of a poetics and metaphysics of immanence.

In Russia and America, a perceived absence of literature gave rise to grandiose notions of literature's importance. This book examines how two traditions worked to refigure cultural lack, not by disputing it but by insisting on it, by representing the nation's (putative) cultural deficit as a moral and aesthetic advantage. Through a comparative study of Gogol and Hawthorne, this book examines parallels that seem particularly striking when we consider that these traditions had virtually no points of contact. Yet, the unexpected parallels between these authors are the result of historical similarities: Russians and Americans felt obliged to develop a manifestly national literature ex nihilo, and to do so in an age when an unprecedented diversity of printed texts were circulating among an ever more heterogeneous reading public. Responding to these conditions, Gogol and Hawthorne articulated ideas that would prove influential for their nations' literary development: that is, despite the culture's thinness and deviation from European norms, it would soon produce works that would surpass European literature in significance.
