"Quand je vis l'Inde, et quand je vis la Chine, pour la première fois, des peuples, sur cette terre, me parurent mériter d'être réels. Joyeux, je fonçai dans ce réel, persuadé que j'en rapportais beaucoup. Y croyais-je complètement ? Voyage réel entre deux imaginaires. Peut-être au fond de moi les observais-je comme des voyages imaginaires qui se seraient réalisés sans moi, œuvre d''autres'. Pays qu'un autre aurait inventés. J'en avais la surprise, l'émotion, l'agacement. C'est qu'il manque beaucoup à ce voyage pour être réel. Je le sus plus tard. Faisais-je exprès de laisser de côté ce qui précisément allait faire en plusieurs de ces pays de la réalité nouvelle : la politique ? [...] Ce livre qui ne me convient plus, qui me gêne et me heurte, me fait honte, ne me permet de corriger que des bagatelles le plus souvent. Il a sa résistance. Comme s'il était un personnage. Il a un ton. À cause de ce ton, tout ce que je voudrais en contrepoids y introduire de plus grave, de plus réfléchi, de plus approfondi, de plus expérimenté, de plus instruit, me revient, m'est renvoyé... comme ne lui convenant pas. Ici, barbare on fut, barbare on doit rester." Henri Michaux.

Travellers' Visions

French Literary Encounters with Japan, 1881-2004

Travellers' Visions adds another perspective to ongoing debates over colonialism with an examination of the intercultural relations between France, a major colonial empire for nearly three centuries, and Japan, a country that has remained mostly autonomous throughout its existence. In this analytic history of French literary images of Japan, from soon after its reopening to the West to the present day, Kawakami examines the work of many of France's most revered authors including Marcel Proust, Paul Claudel, and Roland Barthes, along with other, lesser-known writers and artists, such as Loti and Farrère, as they embarked on journeys—literary and real—to this "exotic" land. Authors are discussed according to type— journalists, diplomats, or collectors, for example—and the close readings are accompanied by Gérard Macé's beautiful and rarely seen photographs. Travellers' Visions offers new clarity to current intellectual debates and will be a valuable resource to students and scholars of French literature and Asian history alike.

Henri Michaux

Experimentation with Signs

Author: Nina Parish

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.

Widows, Pariahs, and Bayadères

India as Spectacle

This book analyzes how French dramatists reproduced certain images of India such as the burning widow, the lowly pariah or untouchable, and the exotic 'bayadere' or dancing girl in four plays and one ballet written from the eighteenth century through the twentieth centuries. Addressing questions of Orientalism, the book also argues that it was because the French lost their Indian colonies to the Briish in the eighteenth centuries that India became a part of the French literary imagination.

Comme des barbares en Inde

En 1899, l’o cier Julien Viaud, alias Pierre Loti, s’immergeait avec extase dans «l’Inde des palmes», rencontrant maharadjah, fakirs, fi dèles sur le Gange... et rédigea l’un de ses chefs d’oeuvre L’Inde (sans les Anglais). Michaux, découvrant l’Inde en 1931 (il aurait pu y croiser Malraux cette même année), allait lui consacrer la moitié de son Barbare en Asie. Si Malraux, qui séjourna en Inde plusieurs fois, dont en 1974 –comme unpèlerinage avant de mourir–, n’écrivit jamais de grand livre sur l’Inde, il lut notamment Tagore et les grands textes sacrés et noua une relation privilégiée avec Nehru et Indira Gandhi. Quant à Gide, traducteur de Tagore et de Kabîr, sous l’invocation duquel Michaux plaça son Barbare, il connut aussi Nehru et soutint avec ferveur les oeuvresde Malraux et de Michaux. Dans cet essai littéraire, hymne à l’Inde et à ces quatre écrivains si di érents qui éprouvèrent une attirance commune pour ce pays «d’antique civilisation», apparaissent aussi beaucoup de belles fi gures de passeurs, tels Ravi Shankar et George Harrison. Il y a trente-cinq ans, Jean-Claude Perrier, journaliste et écrivain, posait le pied pour la première fois en Inde, qui deviendra un peu sa deuxième patrie. Il est l’auteur d’une trentaine d’ouvrages dont André Malraux et la tentation de l’Inde (Gallimard, 2004), Les mystères de Saint-Exupéry (Stock, 2009), prix Louis-Barthou de l’Académie française 2010, et André Gideou la tentation nomade (Flammarion, 2011).

Paths to Contemporary French Literature

Although the great French novelists of the last two centuries are widely read in America, there is a widespread notion that little of importance has happened in French literature since the heyday of Sartre, Camus, and the nouveau roman. Some might argue that even well read Americans are ignorant about what is happening in European literature generally. Certainly, there has never been so few translations of foreign books in the United States, or so little coverage of foreign writers. Curious American readers need new, up-to-date information and analyses about what is happening elsewhere. Paths to Contemporary French Literature is a stimulating and much-needed guide to the major currents of one of the world's great literatures. This critical panorama of contemporary French literature introduces English-language readers to over fifty important writers and poets, many of whom are still little known outside of France. Emphasizing authors who are admired by their peers (as opposed to those with overnight reputations), John Taylor offers a compelling insider's view. The pioneering essays included in this book offer incisive analyses of the ideas motivating current writing and delve into a writer's or poet's entire output. Although some names may be familiar (Marguerite Duras, HÚlÞne Cixous, Philippe Jaccottet, Henri Michaux), the reader obtains fresh reappraisals of their seminal work. Especially noteworthy, however, are Taylor's lively introductions to many other key writers who either have not yet crossed the English Channel, let alone the Atlantic. Combating the notion that French literature is overtly intellectual, inaccessible, or interested only in formal experimentation, Taylor shows that many French writers are instead acutely inquisitive about the outside world, shrewd observers of reality, even very funny. Although not conceived as a reference book, the volume possesses some qualities of a reference work: a good bibliography, reliable dates and biographical facts. Paths to Contemporary French Literature will be of interest to students of French literature and culture, literary scholars, and readers of contemporary fiction and poetry.

Writing Anthropology

A Call for Uninhibited Methods

A call for new methods for anthropology, this book explores the nature of anthropological knowledge and the conditions of integration and communication with people. Starting with an analysis of anthropologists' guilt, Fan addresses issues of reflexivity, reciprocity, and respect, then builds on this to evaluate how researchers generate knowledge.
