Opis: Questions of Influence in Modern French Literature

What is meant by 'influence' in the realm of literature, art, music or ideas? How is it related to concepts such as pastiche or parody? Self-evidently, our understanding of any 'past' work depends on contemporary methods of reading; but does it makes sense, therefore, to claim that influence can be retroactive? Harold Bloom used the term 'the anxiety of influence' as the title of a famous study, but his is only one of many theorizations that span the modern era. This collection of essays examines a variety of texts written in French from the eighteenth century onwards, together with a number of visual and musical works. (All quotations in other languages are followed by translations in English.) The contributors elucidate, question and/or draw on major theories of influence, in new readings of well-known works. Whilst all engage with French and/or francophone culture, the works examined open cross-disciplinary perspectives. 'Questions of Influence is a major contribution to, and updating of, our understanding of the ways in which 'influence' works not only in literature but also in other art-forms, and in relationships between these. Exploring 'influence' in a newly sophisticated way, the book draws on a wide range of European writers, artists and thinkers, and showcases numerous talented critics working at the cutting edge of their fields. It will be indispensable both for those working on the individual figures who form the case studies of the book and for those who want to re-conceptualise the slippery concept of influence and the lateral, as well as direct, modes in which it operates. Each chapter is beautifully presented and lucidly argued, and the whole book demonstrates remarkable intellectual versatility and originality.' - Alison Finch, University of Cambridge, UK.Series Preface Acknowledgements Notes on Contributors Introduction: Influence: Form, Subjects Time; Daniel Brewer 1.
