Abstract

Alphonse Daudet contracta la syphilis très jeune, à l'âge de dix-huit ou vingt ans. Cette maladie, à l'époque incurable, touchait toutes les couches sociales et notamment les jeunes bourgeois amateurs de liaisons amoureuses variées : Baudelaire, Flaubert, Maupassant, Jules de Goncourt, tous ont été frappés. Dans ce texte bref resté longtemps secret - il ne fut publié qu'en 1930, alors que Daudet était mort en 1897 - l'auteur du Petit Chose et des Lettres de mon moulin nous entraîne dans l'implacable parcours du malade au fur et à mesure de l'aggravation des symptômes. La douleur, doulou en provençal, est atroce ; surviennent parfois quelques moments de rémission ; puis la torture reprend. Composé de notations brèves et percutantes, ce " journal intime " rédigé de 1885 à 1895 est un témoignage pudique et bouleversant sur la douleur vécue au quotidien. Julien Barnes a été fasciné par ce texte, qu'il a traduit et fait découvrir aux Anglais.

Abstract

This text brings into mutual dialogue several existing strands of the study of pain and embodied violence. Its two-fold approach, themed both on the hurt and hurt-inducing body, is unique and encompasses both the victim's presence as an image or performed event of pain and the transmitted burden or 'pain' experienced by the watching audience.

Abstract

"The author's readings of early Christian martyr texts suggest that Christians found the suffering self a useful discourse by which to construct their identities, distinguish their teachings, refute antagonistic claims, and retain believers. The author shows that in these texts, suffering is not embraced as an identity but presented as a problem to be solved. Pain is the experience of those who live apart from God. The author demonstrates that in the moments at issue in martyr texts--trial, torture, and death--the Christian self is decidedly not a sufferer. God's intervention miraculously transforms the physical experience. The torture that should hurt heals instead; the body that should be fragmented is, instead, made whole. The author concludes that in a world of sufferers, Christian martyrs serve as promises of another world where there is--existentially and not merely metaphorically--no pain"--Provided by publisher.

Abstract

From Sade at one end of the nineteenth century to Freud at the other, via many French novelists and poets, pleasure and pain become ever more closely entwined. Whereas the inseparability of these themes has hitherto been studied from isolated perspectives, such as psychoanalysis, sadism and sado-masochism, melancholy, or post-structuralist textual jouissance , the originality of this collaborative volume lies in its exploration of how pleasure and pain function across a broader range of contexts. The essays collected here demonstrate how the complex relationship between pleasure and pain plays a vital role in structuring nineteenth-century thinking in prose fiction (Balzac, Flaubert, Musset, Maupassant, Zola), verse and the memoir as well as socio-cultural studies, medical discourses, aesthetic theory and the visual arts. Featuring an international selection of contributors representing the full range of approaches to scholarship in nineteenth-century French studies – historical, literary, cultural, art historical, philosophical, and sociopolitical – the volume attests to the vitality, coherence and interdisciplinarity of nineteenth-century French studies and will be of interest to a wide cross-section of scholars and students of French literature, society and culture.

Abstract

‘A deeply original work of scholarship. Through fine close readings of primary and secondary texts, the author offers the fullest account we have of the related phenomena of pain, sympathy, and sensation in early modern culture.’ Michael Schoenfeldt, John R. Knott, Jr., Professor of English, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In late medieval Catholicism, pain was seen as a way of imitating Christ, and as an avenue to salvation. During the early modern period, Protestant theologians came to reject these assumptions, and attempted to redefine and circumscribe the spiritual meaning of suffering. The rethinking of the meaning of pain during the early modern era is the central theme of this book. The author pays particular attention to how literary writers explored the issue of pain, by placing their work in a broad context of devotional, theological, philosophical and medical texts on suffering. In detailed readings of Alabaster, Donne, Herbert, Crashaw, Lanyer, Spenser, Milton and Montaigne, he shows that early modern culture located the meaning of pain in its capacity to elicit compassion in others - yet the nature of this compassion was also fiercely contested. Dr Jan Frans van Dijkhuizen is Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Leiden.
