Chez Charlotte And Emily from the Author: Jonathan Baumbach. Imagine a bookish man named Francis D., swimming at a public beach in Cape Cod, who drifts out beyond his depth. Imagine that he doesn't drown, that the tide carries him to a private cove where he is rescued by two mysterious young women named Charlotte and Emily. Imagine then that Francis leaves behind his former humdrum life-his formidable wife and teenage daughter-and embarks on a series of violent and erotic adventures, as dream-like as reels of film. Imagine at the same time that a man named Joshua Quartz is telling his silent wife, Genevieve, the story of Francis's adventures, that they have little other communication, that the story is a way of keeping contact between husband and wife alive. Imagine that at some point Genevieve tells her own story, within and without Joshua's account. Baumbach's characters make occasional connections, make love and war, in the disguises of metaphor. If the main action is dream-like or fantastic, the real world is always at the window looking in.

La Po Tique De L Int Riorit Chez Charlotte Et Emily Bront from the Author: Charlotte Borie. Au cœur de l'écriture de Charlotte et Emily Brontë se trouve la question de la formation de l'identité et du saisissement de soi par le sujet (essentiellement féminin). Dans Jane Eyre, Villette, Wuthering Heights et la poésie d'Emily Brontë, le lecteur suit personnages principaux et personae tout au long d'un parcours qui les amène à prendre possession d'eux-mêmes, à trouver leur place dans le monde, à s'y inscrire et à pouvoir transmettre une vision de leur intériorité. Le processus d'intériorisation comprend quatre phases. La première s'organise autour de la perception. Les sujets découvrent le monde et apprennent à son contact la nécessité de rechercher, voire de créer la sensation d'appartenance pour atteindre le bonheur. Déçus par le monde, ils se replient alors sur eux-mêmes, et commence alors la phase de ressenti. Les sujets passent de la perception à l'intellection, forment leurs schémas mentaux, et tentent de recréer en eux-mêmes, virtuellement, les conditions du bonheur. L'imagination joue un rôle majeur dans cette entreprise, mais à terme, le refuge intérieur devient un enfermement, par l'expansion pathologique de l'intériorité et le manque de réel. Les sujets ressentent alors l'impérieuse nécessité d'extérioriser. La troisième phase s'amorce donc autour des problématiques d'expression. Les sujets, à travers la prise de parole, l'écriture et la pratique picturale, trouvent des canaux pour épancher leur intériorité autant que pour la mettre en forme. Le résultat de leur extériorisation donne lieu à la quatrième phase, celle du reçu, au cours de laquelle les lecteurs intimes et performants continuent l'entreprise de construction de l'identité.

Dreams Of Molly from the Author: Jonathan Baumbach. A staple in the literary scene for over forty years, Baumbach’s latest novel, Dreams of Molly, is a wonderful addition to his oeuvre. A love story as only Baumbach can write, it is filled with the longings and lingerings, sex and deprivation, humor and heartache, as well as the New York nuances that have driven Baumbach’s fiction from the start. As in past Baumbach novels, Dreams of Molly creates a life invented in dreams.
