41 ARMBRECHT, Thomas J.D. YOURCENAR, Marguerite) GREEEN, Julian) At the Periphery of the Center : Sexuality and Literary Genre in the Works of Marguerite Yourcenar and Julian Green.
Rodopi , Amsterdam / New York, 2007, ISBN:9789042021891 
ARMBRECHT, Thomas J.D. At the Periphery of the Center : Sexuality and Literary Genre in the Works of Marguerite Yourcenar and Julian Green. Amsterdam–New York : Rodopi, 2007. First Edition. Chiasma 23. Pp [1]-139,(1). 8vo, i llustrated brown card covers. The twenty-third volume in the Chiasma series. “At the Periphery of the Center is the first comparison of two of France's most important twentieth-century authors, Julien Green and Marguerite Yourcenar. It examines textual elements in their plays and novels to draw conclusions about the ways that they represent homosexuality in their texts. Both Yourcenar and Green turned to drama to explore aspects of same-sex desire that they felt unable to express in their prose. The analysis of their plays shows that an emphasis on dialogue and action makes drama a particularly appropriate genre for writing about homosexuality because it affords an author distance and therefore protection from the "proclivities" of his characters. The chapters on the novel show, by contrast, how prose fiction allows an author to explain a character's sexuality with a degree of subtlety difficult to achieve in theatre. Variations in narration and paratext allow writers to avoid condemning discourses and to find an original means of expression instead. At the Periphery brings a new, textually centered approachto Green's and Yourcenar's works that is unlike the psychological analyses that often typify queer readings. It will be of great interest to scholars of twentieth-century French literature and of Gender Studies. The book wil l also appeal to non-academic readers, however, since it is about two French authors who were also American citizens and who wrote about US history and contemporary culture." - from the back cover. Very good. 30.00

"This exhibition surveys the sensibility of the Acadian community from the 1960s to the present time.

This exhibition achieves a logical form by virtue of four categories:- sculpture, folk art, painting, and conceptual criticism, presented with a due regard for the historical significance of these forms with in Canadian and international contexts." from the foreword / Avant-propos by BaernardRiordon.

She discusses the 'GreyOwl Syndrome' of white writers going native; the folklore arising from the mysterious -- and disasterous -- Franklin expedition of the nineteenth cen tury; the myth of the dreaded snow monster, the Wendigo; the relations between nature writing and new forms of Gothic; and how a fresh generation of women writers in Canada have adapted the imagery of the Canadian North for the exploration of contemporary themes of gender, the family, and sexuality.Writers discussed include Robert Service, Robertson Davies, Alice Munro, E .J. Pratt, Marian Engel, Margaret Laurence, and Gwendolyn MacEwan." - from the dustjacket. Very good in crisp dustjacket. 30.00
