Gaboriau, Émile - Les gens de bureau | Bibebook
Une satire féroce et réjouissante de l'administration et de la vie des bureaux. Extrait : Cet homme impénétrable est le grand ressort du ministère, un ressort d'acier. C'est sur sa présentation que se font toutes les nominations et toutes les promotions. Il est le dispensateur de l'avancement, dispensateur avare ; à lui s'adressent tous les vœux, à lui toutes les prières ; il est de la part du peuple employé l'objet d'un culte analogue à celui que le lazzarone napolitain professe pour son grand saint Janvier. Le fanatisme y touche de près à l'insulte, l'adoration à l'outrage. Le miracle de l'avancement ou de la gratification a-t-il eu lieu, Dieu ne fait pas fleurir assez de roses pour le saint Janvier de l'Équilibre ; mais le bienheureux du personnel a-t-il fait la sourde oreille, ce n'est plus du rez-de-chaussée aux combles de la maison qu'un formidable concert d'invectives et d'imprécations. Impassible, il ne sait rien de cet orage.

À son retour à Paris, il a la douleur de voir le précieux livre lui échapper encore, lors d'une vente aux enchères. Mais il obtiendra finalement l'objet convoité, d'une manière que le soin au lecteur de découvrir...

Thaïs était née de parents libres et pauvres, adonnés à l'idolâtrie. Du temps qu'elle était petite, son père gouvernait, à Alexandrie, proche de la porte de la Lune, un cabaret que fréquentaient les matelots. Certains souvenirs vifs et détachés lui restaient de sa première enfance. Elle revoyait son père assis à l'angle du foyer, les jambes croisées, grand, redoutable et tranquille, tel qu'un de ces vieux Pharaons que célèbrent les complaintes chantées par les aveugles dans les carrefours...Thaïs, courtisane d'Alexandrie, est convertie au christianisme par le moine Paphnuce.

FRANCE, ANATOLE : L'Orme du mail (1897) - Histoire Contemporaine 1 of 4 | Ebooks libres et gratuits
Histoire contemporaine est le titre générique d'un ensemble d'articles d'Anatole France, parus dans l'Écho de Paris en 1896, et qui désignera plus tard une série de quatre romans publiés chez Calmann-Lévy : l'Orme du mail (1897), le Mannequin d'osier (1897), l'Anneau d'améthyste (1899) et Monsieur Bergeret à Paris. D'abord attaché à construire une violente satire anticléricale, l'auteur puise son inspiration dans les faits les plus brûlants de l'actualité, l'affaire Dreyfus notamment. L'ensemble trouve son unité autour d'un personnage central, M. Bergeret, universitaire libéral dont l'honnêteté et l'intelligence, durement éprouvées par la vie, s'expriment à travers un scepticisme amer et désabusé. S'il ne songe pas à corriger les injustices du monde, M. Bergeret ne renonce pas à en être le témoin lucide. Ce volume s'ouvre sur la vacance de l'évêché de Tourcoing. Deux candidats s'affrontent. L'un d'eux, l'abbé Lantaigne, responsable du grand séminaire, est un érudit, austère et froid, peu ami des idées nouvelles et tourné vers le passé. L'autre, l'abbé Guitrel, est professeur d'éloquence, également au grand séminaire, et a plus de souplesse, ce qui lui permet de mieux réussir dans sa campagne. Tous deux sont également décrits comme sournois et hypocrites, bien loin des vertus chrétiennes qu'ils sont censés incarner... -- downloaded EPUB

Dans le Mannequin d'osier, M. Bergeret poursuit une existence qu'il juge médiocre et indigne de lui. Rejeté à la fois par les notables locaux, le recteur et le doyen de la Faculté qui le jugent trop anticonformiste, il doit encore supporter le mépris de sa femme. Il atteint le comble de l'écoeurement quand il découvre qu'elle le trompe avec son meilleur élève... -- downloaded EPUB

Kristine Haugen - Imagined Universities: Public Insult and the Terrae Filius in Early Modern Oxford (2000) | Academia.edu
Abstract: The 17th-century University of Oxford was plagued by an extremely insulting Latin commencement speaker known as the terrae filius, or "son of the earth." The speakers were routinely expelled from the university, while manuscript copies proliferated -- a few speeches were even owned by John Locke. How did such a custom arise, what were the social effects of the filius' speeches, and what forces surrounded the filius' eventual suppression? It's argued that in the heyday of the filius, his insults actually served a sort of rhetoric of the rotten apple: the observed transgressions of the few were held up against an imagined and far more virtuous, decorous, and pious Oxford. Meanwhile, the filius himself might be understood in terms of two long-established university social types -- the disputant and the tour guide.

My intellectual wings have been chafing my… She picks up every piece of passive-aggressive discomfort, weaseling self-justification, feeble attempts to reassert cultural and moral authority without appearing to (wouldn't "do" for the Yale professor of humility to be seen to pull rank), and general intellectual, moral and rhetorical disaster in David Brooks' column. He's given his readers an excuse not to take Ta-Nehisi seriously, since Brooks has publicly performed the discomfort of white privilege for them and has shared with them what he's "learned" from Black Lives Matter and Ta-Nehisi's book, which is that he still believes in fairy tales, and so his readers are encouraged to as well.

Thomas G. Pavel - The Lives of the Novel: A History. (2013 hdbk, 2015 obk) | Princeton University Press
This is a bold and original original history of the novel from ancient Greece to the vibrant world of contemporary fiction. In this wide-ranging survey, Pavel argues that the driving force behind the novel's evolution has been a rivalry between stories that idealize human behavior and those that ridicule and condemn it. Impelled by this conflict, the novel moved from depicting strong souls to sensitive hearts and, finally, to enigmatic psyches. Pavel analyzes more than a hundred novels from Europe, North and South America, Asia, and beyond, resulting in a provocative reinterpretation of its development. According to Pavel, the earliest novels were implausible because their characters were either perfect or villainous. In the 18thC and 19thC, novelists strove for greater credibility by describing the inner lives of ideal characters in minute detail (as in Richardson's case), or by closely examining the historical and social environment (as Scott and Balzac did). Yet the earlier rivalry continued: Fielding held the line against idealism, defending the comic tradition with its flawed characters, while Charlotte Brontë and George Eliot offered a rejoinder to social realism with their idealized vision of strong, generous, and sensitive women. In the twentieth century, modernists like Proust and Joyce sought to move beyond this conflict and capture the enigmatic workings of the psyche. Pavel concludes his compelling account by showing how the old tensions persist even within today's pluralism, as popular novels about heroes coexist with a wealth of other kinds of works, from satire to social and psychological realism. -- Prof. of French, Comparative Literature, and Social Thought at the U. of Chicago, also "Fictional Worlds" and "The Spell of Language." -- downloaded introduction to Note

John Richard Moores - Representations of France and the French in English satirical prints, c. 1740-1832 (2011 PhD thesis) - White Rose Etheses Online - University of York
This thesis explores representations of France and the French in English satirical prints in the period c. 1740-1832. This was an era of rivalry and conflict between the two nations. It has been suggested that hostility towards France at this time contributed to the formation of English, or British, national identity. This coincided with England’s ‘golden age of caricature’. While much of the satirical art produced focussed on France, most studies of this material have dealt with how the English portrayed themselves and each other. Those which have discussed representations of the French have promoted the view that English perceptions of the French were principally hostile. While there is a temptation to employ such prints as evidence of English Francophobia, a closer investigation reveals greater satirical complexities at work which do not simply conceptualise and employ the French ‘Other’ as target of hatred. Informed by war and rivalry, as well as by trade, travel, and cultural exchange, the prints projected some positive characteristics onto the French ‘Other’, they contain varying degrees of sympathy and affinity with the French, and are demonstrative of a relationship more distinct and intimate than that shared with any other nation. At the same time, the prints expose many of the tensions and divisions that existed within Britain itself. French characters were employed to directly attack British political figures, while in other instances domestic anxieties were projected onto images of the French. -- downloaded pdf to Note

Srinivas Aravamudan - Enlightenment Orientalism: Resisting the Rise of the Novel (2011) 360 pages | Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.
A MUST BUY -- Srinivas Aravamudan here reveals how Oriental tales, pseudo-ethnographies, sexual fantasies, and political satires took Europe by storm during the eighteenth century. Naming this body of fiction Enlightenment Orientalism, he poses a range of urgent questions that uncovers the interdependence of Oriental tales and domestic fiction, thereby challenging standard scholarly narratives about the rise of the novel. More than mere exoticism, Oriental tales fascinated ordinary readers as well as intellectuals, taking the fancy of philosophers such as Voltaire, Montesquieu, and Diderot in France, and writers such as Defoe, Swift, and Goldsmith in Britain. Aravamudan shows that Enlightenment Orientalism was a significant movement that criticized irrational European practices even while sympathetically bridging differences among civilizations. A sophisticated reinterpretation of the history of the novel, Enlightenment Orientalism is sure to be welcomed as a landmark work in eighteenth-century studies.

T.S. Eliot. - "Ben Jonson" - The Sacred Wood; Essays on Poetry and Criticism 1921. | bartleby.com
Attacks reducing Jonson to superficial humours theory - nice analysis of how his characters fit each other driven by action in his invented world rather than Shakespeare’s characters acting on each other in a broader imaginative setting, implying with less discrete boundaries -- again Eliot returns to rhetoric as something to analyze not just cast as contentless term of denigration. Sees Marlowe and Jonson in similar light

Betty Rose Nagle, review - William Fitzgerald, How to Read a Latin Poem: If You Can’t Read Latin Yet (2013) | Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014.01.07
This engagingly written and cleverly organized book contains sophisticated discussions of a wide range of poets, periods, and genres, primarily in the form of close readings of the Latin originals. By what means, and how successfully, does its author accommodate that hypothetical Latinless reader? He does not do this by dumbing anything down; these are readings from which the proficient can profit, too. The poets and works included come mostly from the “greatest hits” list, but there are some unorthodox choices as well, such as Sulpicia in the chapter on love poetry, several Priapea included with Catullus and Martial in a chapter on invective, and Persius as the featured satirist. The first two chapters treat antithetical topics (love, hate); the middle two treat respectively a collection (Horace’s Odes) and a corpus (Virgil’s works) written during the same period; the fifth treats another pair of contemporaries, the Neronians Petronius [actually Lucan?] and Seneca; and the sixth, thematic again, pairs Lucretius and Ovid as philosophical and narrative “science fiction.” There is also an introduction for his readers, cleverly followed by a “Prelude” discussing two poems addressed to their readers, and a brief “Epilogue,” using Hadrian’s animula as a bridge to a few comments about the very different poetry of Christian hymns. Ancillaries include a pronunciation guide, suggestions for further reading, a glossary of terms, an index of names and topics, and another of poems. -- Oxford University Press - only hdbk on amazon.com - ebook available on Google_Books for c $20 - is OUP having a kindle fight?

Rachel Trickett - The Difficulties of Defining and Categorizing in the Augustan Period | JSTOR: New Literary History, Vol. 1, No. 2 (Winter, 1970), pp. 163-179
Attacks analysis that, in its own terms and originally is insightful, when elevated to a commonplace that locks works, authors or periods into rigid or inappropriate categories -- examples Eliot re metaphysical poets, Lovejoy Great Chain of Being -- slams Mack for trying to use Great Chain of Being to elevate Essay on Man to Renaissance philosophy. She doesn't think much of the poem apparently, but she's right that Pope uses the metaphor sparingly and in a far more flexible way than Renaissance, appropriate to the empirical natural history and philosophy of his age. Generally lots of useful comments on Restoration and Augustan literature, periodization and lit crit fashions. Downloaded pdf to Note

Alexander Pope's self-representations in his Horatian poems involve defence of the self as well as literary self-defence. The apparent egotism is a way of defining and protecting identity against the threats of what he saw as a corrupt society. The drama of the poems, which paradoxically sometimes exposes egotism, act as a second kind of self-defence by allowing the poet to withdraw in imagination from the struggle. -- helpful re the various fashions in Pope bashing and bibliography -- downloaded pdf to Note

Exemplary education of both history and poetry for Renaissance and 17thC - but poetry closer to philosophy in dealing with the "general" whereas history deals with partculars - poetry can invent examples that teach with special delight -- makes the practice of poetry offering analogies or allegories of contemporary situations via "history" complex for us to read without those assumptions -- looks useful for the "teaching by examples" canard -- he quotes Causabon as the familiar source of the adage -- didn't download

JAMES WARD - Brass money and wooden shoes: Transmuting anti-Catholic rhetoric in Swift's "Drapier's Letters" | JSTOR: Eighteenth-Century Ireland / Iris an dá chultúr, Vol. 25 (2010), pp. 82-97
This article discusses Jonathan Swift's appropriation of anti-Catholic rhetoric in The Drapier's Letters. The discussion draws both on pamphlets which preceded Swift's intervention in the Wood's halfpence affair and on the wider tradition in English and Irish political thought of conceiving political liberty negatively against the threat of Catholic absolutism. Swift exploits the historical resonance of anti-Catholicism while subtly reorienting or 'transmuting' it, retaining its emotional appeal but directing it against a new target. Such manipulations show that The Drapier's Letters construct their audience as both a political constituency to be mobilized and a satiric target to be mocked. -- downloaded pdf to Note

Christine Stevenson - Robert Hooke's Bethlem | JSTOR: Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Vol. 55, No. 3 (Sep., 1996), pp. 254-275
Bethlem Hospital for lunatics, built to the designs of Robert Hooke between 1674 and 1676 in London, is a singularly famous building that has been little studied. This article summarizes the available written evidence, including the minutes of the Court of Governors' deliberations during Bethlem construction and contemporary prose and poetic celebrations of the result, to show that one conventional rhetorical use of the building, as a monstrous emblem of vanity, may be suprisingly apposite given the governors' preoccupation with how it be viewed, both literally and figuratively. However, they seem to have expected that post-Fire and post-Restoration London would be willing to entertain a conception of a lunatic asylum more polysemous than has been possible since, possibly because Bethlem created the type. Hooke's application of the domestic gallery, in particular, not only introduced a wide range of associations with health, hospitality, instruction, and pleasure, it permitted a plan that was concurrently applauded as inherently curative. It is, however, Bethlem's façade which soon became notorious; the article concludes with an explanation for the significance of its grandeur, and for the failure of the signification. -- splendidly illustrated -- over 100 references, covers through 1733 -- didn't download

Philip Gould - Wit and Politics in Revolutionary British America: The Case of Samuel Seabury and Alexander Hamilton | JSTOR: Eighteenth-Century Studies, Vol. 41, No. 3 (Spring, 2008), pp. 383-403
This essay reads the famous exchange of anonymously written pamphlets between the American loyalist Samuel Seabury and the patriot Alexander Hamilton as an episode in transatlantic literary history. Reading the political pamphlet as a genre in which literary and cultural debates over taste and style simultaneously were taking place, this essay argues that for both patriot and loyalist writers, demonstrating British cultural literacy was crucial to establishing political authorship in America. The subsequent debates between Seabury and Hamilton over such subjects as wit and classical expression testify to the ongoing importance of this literacy as well as the larger dissonance between the political and cultural dimensions of the American Revolution. -- downloaded pdf to Note

Darryl P. Domingo: "THE NATURAL PROPENSITY OF IMITATION": or, Pantomimic Poetics and the Rhetoric of Augustan Wit (2009)
JSTOR: Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies, Vol. 9, No. 2 (FALL/WINTER 2009), pp. 51-95 -- downloaded pdf to Note -- Drawing attention to the complex reciprocal relationship between commercialized leisure and commercial literature in the so-called "Age of Wit," this essay reconceives of the witty and witless in two important ways. Taking for granted, first of all, that wit is usually analyzed in terms of the efficacy of verbal language, the essay examines how and why debates concerning true and false wit were played out in physical terms—in this case, through the motions, gestures, and attitudes of the dancing body. Second of all, the essay attempts to account for the enduring, if unwitting, attractions of "false wit" by likening it to the tricks and transformations of contemporary English pantomime. Satirists of the 1720s, 1730s, and 1740s frequently invoke the unmeaning motion of Harlequin as a visual way of proscribing the verbal excesses of extravagant language. At the same time, apologists for pantomime associate Harlequin's "dumb Wit" with truth, reason, and the pattern of nature, claiming that the genre's corporeality allowed it to transcend the limitations and equivocations of words. The essay concludes that the popularity of pantomime contextualizes the Augustan reaction against false wit, in that it identifies a source of aesthetic pleasure in the public's eagerness to be duped by apparent sameness in difference. Early eighteenth-century readers enjoy luxuriant, illogical, and mixed metaphors, forced similes, and trifling jibes and quibbles for the same reason that early eighteenth-century spectators delight in the unexpected turns of pantomimic entertainment: in a world under the sway of Harlequin's magical slapstick, audiences derive satisfaction from being deceived. -- Looks pretty heavy on Theory but lots of useful primary sources -- May be useful for Beggars Opera, Dunciad, Three Hours after Marriage, Martinus Scriblerus and even Peri Bathous as well as Hogarth.

Gregory Lynall: Swift and Science: The Satire, Politics and Theology of Natural Knowledge, 1690-1730 (2012) Kindle Store
It is often thought that Jonathan Swift was vehemently opposed to the new science that heralded the beginning of the modern age, but this book interrogates that assumption, bringing new perspectives to his most famous works, and making a case for the intellectual importance of some of his more neglected poems and prose satires. Lynall's study traces the theological, political, and socio-cultural resonances of scientific knowledge in the early eighteenth century, and considers what they can reveal about the growth of Swift's imagination. Taking us to a universe made from clothes, to a place where flowers can talk and men are only trees turned upside down, to an island that hovers high in the clouds, and to a library where a spider predicts how the world will end, the book shows how satire can be an active and unique participant in cultural debates about the methods and purposes of scientific enquiry.

George R. Wasserman: "A Strange Chimaera of Beasts and Men": The Argument and Imagery of Hudibras, Part I (1973)
JSTOR: Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900, Vol. 13, No. 3 (Summer, 1973), pp. 405-421-- downloaded pdf to Note --- Butler's notebook-reflections on human nature provide the context for a reading of Part I of Hudibras as a satire on mankind. Reason, traditionally regarded as the mark of man's superiority over the beasts, was, for Butler, the cause of human strife and brutishness. Most men, he suggests, use reason unnaturally, as a result of either excessive passion and humour (accidental madness) or of the deliberate use of reason abstracted from the senses ("Industrious Ignorance"). Thus, to the degree that they act in accordance with their true natures, natural fools and animals may be regarded as rational man's superior. These views are illustrated by both the mock-polemics and the mock-heroics of the poem-i.e., by Hudibras's reasoned defense of the uniqueness of rational man against Ralph's identification of Presbyterian synods with bear-baitings; and by the knight's battle with the bear-baiters, whom he rationally proves to be Jesuit subversives. Further illustration of Butler's views is provided by a pervasive pattern of imagery, brutalizing men and humanizing animals. Part I of Hudibras is thus a dramatic and metaphorical redefinition of the sine qua non of man as bestiality.

Jess Edwards, Review: Aino Mäkikalli and Andreas K. E. Mueller eds, Positioning Defoe’s Non-Fiction: Form, Function, Genre | Digital Defoe
What most previous studies of Defoe’s non-fiction have tended not to do, and this includes the editorial introductions to the Pickering and Chatto editions, according to John Richetti, is pay attention to the formal properties of these works in their own right, as products of generic pressures and literary craft (Richetti 38). In their explorations of various kinds of moral challenge and crisis, their attempts to represent the particularities of time and space, and their occasional dramatic dialogues, Defoe’s non-fictional works help us to understand the genesis of his groundbreaking experiments in realist narrative, as well as some of their peculiarities. They also provide us, in their own right, with an opportunity to explore the relationship between history and form. Mäkikalli and Mueller’s collection, Positioning Daniel Defoe’s Non-Fiction, addresses this gap in scholarship.
