Huysmans L'inchange by Marc Smeets

£44.99

Product description

Mme si elle a fait l'objet de nombreux commentaires dj, un mystre plane encore sur la conversion au catholicisme de Joris-Karl Huysmans (1848-1907). L'homme, certes, se convertit, mais qu'en est-il de l'ouvre ? Un grand crivain peut-il en mme temps tre un bon converti ? En d'autres termes encore, comment grer deux vocations, deux parcours dont le moins que l'on puisse dire est qu'ils sont difficilement compatibles ? A travers documents personnels et ouvres littraires nous essaierons de retracer le trajet particulier d'un crivain dcadent qui renoue avec Dieu. Nous aurons nous pencher plus prcisment sur ce que nous appellerons un mlange bizarre de fidlit soi-mme et de volont de rupture, mlange qui, croyons-nous, est au cour d'une problmatique qui n'a pas eu l'attention qu'elle mrite. Lacune laquelle nous voulons remdier ici. Peut-on brler ce que l'on a ador ? Quelque chose, semble-t-il, condamne l'crivain revenir toujours ses anciennes amours. Huysmans, de ce point de vue, est l'homme qui n'a pas vraiment su faire peau neuve.

Oxfam Books & Music Beeston

The Beeston books and music shop is situated near to Nottingham University, close to the city of Nottingham. There is a train station nearby. We offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, academic books, and rare or collectable items. There is a wide variety of music, including sheet music and a good selection of high quality classical, rock and pop vinyl. The volunteer team is a diverse mix from the local community, and University. We are currently recruiting for a quality control volunteer. We always welcome good quality, saleable donations which can be delivered to our rear entrance.
