Claire Martin's autobiography was first published in two volumes in 1965 and 1966. Already a prize winning Quebec writer, the author generated a wave of controversy with this detailed account of a childhood subjected to cruelty and brutality. Her deeply moving portrayal drew acclaim from readers who saw aspects of their own childhood experiences mirrored in its pages; it also evoked resistance from traditionalists unsettled by its exposé of family, church, and convent school some decades before the Quiet Revolution. Written with the passion of one who has known harsh injustices, this memoir nevertheless reflects the steady focus and narrative skill of an seasoned writer. With a richly descriptive style and deft ironic touch, Claire Martin tells her own unforgettable story of a young person confronting and finally emerging from the oppressions of unrestrained malign authority.

Novembre 1917, la Grande Guerre s'éternise de la Flandre à l'Alsace dans le vacarme des canons. Arraché aux riantes collines du Gers, François, instituteur, a laissé dans la belle Gascogne une fiancée tourmentée pour plonger dans l'enfer quotidien du Chemin des Dames et de Verdun. Il partage le destin d'autres poilus, parisiens, auvergnats, ardéchois. Entre les tranchées, un fantassin français peut-il, sans représailles, fraterniser avec un fantassin allemand ? Dans ce récit se révèle l'obstiné instinct de survie, qui, au-delà des sentiments et des idéaux, dispute à la mort la carcasse violentée de misérables petits hommes.

Cette étude souligne l'émergence de nouvelles formes narratives, notamment polyphoniques et montre aussi toute la richesse de la spatialité dans le roman africain : elle met en lumière une nouvelle maîtrise du descriptif, interroge la poétique des éléments et les constellations imaginaires à l'œuvre chez certains auteurs, tout en respectant la diversité des écritures singulières.

Fait divers en Normandie : une fille d'agriculteur rêveuse épouse un médecin décevant, s'ennuie à la campagne, prend des amants, s'endette et se donne la mort. Flaubert relève le défi de ce sujet banal. Madame Bovary ne dit pas seulement le malaise de toutes les femmes insatisfaites, de la "mal mariée" du XIXe siècle aux "desperate housewives" des feuilletons américains du XXIe siècle. Ce roman transforme en chef-d'œuvre l'un des plus grands drames humains : celui de rater sa vie.

Political troubles and civil unrest force a woman and young boy to flee their war-torn country in search of a safe haven in this award-winning novel that speaks to issues that are both timely and universal. Blaise Fortune, also known as Koumaïl, loves hearing the story of how he came to live with Gloria in the Republic of Georgia: Gloria ran to the site of a train accident where she found an injured woman who asked Gloria to take her baby. The woman, Gloria says, was French, and the baby was Blaise. When Blaise turns seven years old, the Soviet Union collapses, and it’s then that Gloria decides she and Blaise must flee. They make their way westward on foot, heading toward France, where Gloria says they will find safe haven. During their five-year journey across the Caucasus and Europe as they encounter other refugees searching for a better life, Blaise grows from a boy into an adolescent. However, it’s only as a young man can Blaise attempt to untangle his identity. Bondoux’s heartbreaking tale of exile, sacrifice, hope, and survival is a story of ultimate love. “A beautifully cadenced tribute to maternal love and the power of stories amid contemporary political chaos.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review “The two [Blaise and Gloria] make a perilous, five-year journey westward through war-torn territory, encountering a memorable entourage of fellow refugees with poignant stories of their own. … Though Blaise narrates this splendidly translated novel, Gloria's voice will long resonate.”—Publishers Weekly Starred Review “An enchanting novel that mixes grand storytelling with an unflinching look at the harsh realities of poverty.”—Junior Library Guild

But when a terrorist explosion kills a young woman at a café in Jerusalem, something changes for Tal.

'For certain men the stronger their desire, the less likely they are to act.' With his first glimpse of Madame Arnoux, Frédéric Moreau is convinced he has found his romantic destiny, but when he pursues her to Paris the young student is unable to translate his passion into decisive action. He also finds himself distracted by the equally romantic appeal of political action in the turbulent years leading up to the revolution of 1848, and by the attractions of three other women, each of whom seeks to make him her own: a haughty society lady, a capricious courtesan, and an artless country girl. Flaubert offers a vivid and unsparing portrait of the young men of his generation, struggling to salvage something of their ideals in a city where corruption, consumerism, and a pervasive sense of disenchantment undermine all but the most compromised erotic, aesthetic, and social initiatives. Sentimental Education combines thoroughgoing irony with an impartial but unexpectedly intense sympathy in a novel whose realism competes with that of Balzac and whose innovations in narrative plot and perspective mark a turning-point in the development of literary modernism. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

When did brawn ever triumph over brains? And yet there is something solid and appealing about the brash Highlander who's as dangerous in the ballroom as in battle.
