Henri Michaux is widely recognized as a major twentieth-century French poet and painter. Although his fascination with universal languages has attracted critical attention, it has up until now been treated as a marginal concern. This study argues that Michaux's ideas on universal languages are central to an understanding of his works.

Henri Michaux is both a recognised poet and visual artist, arguably one of the greatest 'double artists' of the twentieth century. This book presents the first detailed examination of a particular interdisciplinary aspect of his production, namely, the innovative experimentation with signs contained in four works: Mouvements, Par la voie des rythmes, Saisir and Par des traits. Questions arise concerning their literary and visual status as, in their attempt to render interior rhythm and dynamism, they occupy an interstitial space between writing and drawing, between the book and the canvas, between the Western alphabet and Chinese characters. This study addresses these questions by analysing the conception, production and reception of Michaux's signs and the literary and artistic contexts in which they were produced.

The essays in this volume consider a range of negotiations around francophone identity in Canada (Quebec, Acadia, Ontario, Saskatchewan), in the Caribbean, in Belgium and in Switzerland, and also with regard to Jewishness within European and Canadian "francophonie." Their arrangement, starting with the Americas and concluding with Europe, provides a structural foregrounding of the shifting emphasis of the margins/centre debate, which also serves to resituate the more occulted, but no less significant, uncertainties of minority francophone cultures in Europe. Ce recueil d'essais examine les negociations variees autour de l'identite francophone au Canada (Quebec, Acadie, Ontario, Saskatchewan), aux Antilles, en Belgique, en Suisse, et dans l'ecriture juive francophone de l'Europe et du Canada. Prenant les Ameriques comme point de depart et l'Europe comme point de chute, il met en relief, de par cette organisation, l'accentuation changeante du debat entre les marges et le centre, tout en resituant du meme coup les incertitudes plus cachees mais non moins significatives des cultures francophones minoritaires de l'Europe."

Much poetic writing in France in the post-1945 period is set in an elemental landscape and expressed through an impersonal poetic voice. It is therefore often seen as primarily spatial and cut off from human concerns. This study of three poets, André du Bouchet, Philippe Jaccottet and Bernard Noël, who have not been compared before, argues that space is inseparable from time in their work, which is always in transition. The different ways in which the provisional operates in their writing show the wide range of forms that modern poetry can take: an insistence on the figure of the interval, hesitant movement, or exuberant impulse. As well as examining the imaginative universes of the poets through close attention to the texts, this book considers the important contribution they have made in their prose writing to our understanding of the visual arts and poetry translation, in themselves transitional activities. It argues that these writers have, in different ways, succeeded in creating poetic worlds that attest to close and constantly changing contact with the real.

A sweeping cultural survey reminiscent of Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence. "At irregular times and in scattered settings, human beings have achieved great things. Human Accomplishment is about those great things, falling in the domains known as the arts and sciences, and the people who did them.' So begins Charles Murray's unique account of human excellence, from the age of Homer to our own time. Employing techniques that historians have developed over the last century but that have rarely been applied to books written for the general public, Murray compiles inventories of the people who have been essential to the stories of literature, music, art, philosophy, and the sciences—a total of 4,002 men and women from around the world, ranked according to their eminence. The heart of Human Accomplishment is a series of enthralling descriptive chapters: on the giants in the arts and what sets them apart from the merely great; on the differences between great achievement in the arts and in the sciences; on the meta-inventions, 14 crucial leaps in human capacity to create great art and science; and on the patterns and trajectories of accomplishment across time and geography. Straightforwardly and undogmatically, Charles Murray takes on some controversial questions. Why has accomplishment been so concentrated in Europe? Among men? Since 1400? He presents evidence that the rate of great accomplishment has been declining in the last century, asks what it means, and offers a rich framework for thinking about the conditions under which the human spirit has expressed itself most gloriously. Eye-opening and humbling, Human Accomplishment is a fascinating work that describes what humans at their best can achieve, provides tools for exploring its wellsprings, and celebrates the continuing common quest of humans everywhere to discover truths, create beauty, and apprehend the good.

Hyperscapes In The Poetry Of Frank O Hara

Frank O'Hara's poetry evokes a specific era and location: New York in the fifties and early sixties. This is a pre-computer age of typewritten manuscripts, small shops and lunch hours: it is also an age of gay repression, accelerating consumerism and race riots. Hazel Smith suggests that the location and dislocation of the cityscape creates 'hyperscapes' in the poetry of Frank O'Hara. The hyperscape is a postmodern site characterised by difference, breaking down unified concepts of text, city, subject and art, and remoulding them into new textual, subjective and political spaces. This book theorises the process of disruption and re-figuration which constitutes the hyperscape, and celebrates its radicality.
