  • Rustic Legends: Twelve Ghostly Tales

    Werewolves. Witches. Ghosts. Stone Giants. These are only some of the fantastic creatures that haunt these pages. George Sand's imagination runs wild as she shares the ghost stories of Berry, the country province where she spent her childhood. First published in 1858, this book of legends was a collaboration between Sand and her son Maurice, who provided the illustrations. Now available in English for the very first time, this book by the famous French author is the perfect addition to any classic horror library, alongside "Frankenstein" and "Dracula." Discover a demon with a name so terrible that it cannot be spoken aloud. A snake forty feet in length. Blue meteor lights. And all through the eyes of the author who Victor Hugo once called "the great woman of our time."

  • Beyond Sun and Sand: Caribbean Environmentalisms

    Filtered through the lens of the North American and European media, the Caribbean appears to be a series of idyllic landscapes-sanctuaries designed for sailing, diving, and basking in the sun on endless white sandy beaches. Conservation literature paints a similarly enticing portrait, describing the region as a habitat for endangered coral reefs and their denizens, parrots, butterflies, turtles, snails, and a myriad of plant species. In both versions, the image of the exotic landscape overshadows the rich island cultures that are both linguistically and politically diverse, but trapped in a global economy that offers few options for development. Popular depictions also overlook the reality that the region is fraught with environmental problems, including water and air pollution, solid waste mismanagement, destruction of ecosystems, deforestation, and the transition from agriculture to ranching. Bringing together ten essays by social scientists and activists, Beyond Sun and Sand provides the most comprehensive exploration to date of the range of environmental issues facing the region and the social movements that have developed to deal with them. The authors consider the role that global and regional political economies play in this process and provide valuable insight into Caribb...

  • Maurice Sand: Une œuvre et son brisant au 19e siècle (French Edition)

    De Maurice Sand, l’histoire culturelle et littéraire n’a en général retenu que son état de fils bien-aimé de la plus célèbre écrivaine du 19 e siècle. Pourtant, son oeuvre – qui allie peinture, dessin, illustration, théâtre, histoire de l’art et sciences naturelles – porte la marque d’un créateur original et cohérent.Dans cette première étude exhaustive et magnifiquement illustrée, Lise Bissonnette présente l’oeuvre de Maurice Sand enfin vue comme un ensemble et explore les mécanismes de sa méconnaissance historique. Elle en dévoile une cause déterminante : sa transversalité, irrecevable en un siècle qui n’y voyait que de la dispersion, mais qui est paradoxalement un signe de qualité dans le domaine actuel des arts. Elle montre enfin toute la richesse et la finesse des travaux de cet artiste qui cherchait constamment à réinventer le passé, sous un mode fantastique tempéré par l’étude scientifique, notamment celle des métamorphoses qu’il traqua en histoire, en ethnogénie et en entomologie. De nombreux fils le relient ainsi aux thèmes centraux de notre temps.Titulaire de neuf doctorats honoris causa et docteure en lettres de l’Université de Montréal, Lise Bissonnette est journaliste, administratrice et écrivaine. Elle a diri...

  • Commedia Dell'Arte: An Actor's Handbook

    There has been an enormous revival of interest in Commedia dell'arte. And it remians a central part of many drama school courses. In Commedia dell'arte in the Twentieth Century John Rublin first examines the orgins of this vital theatrical form and charts its recent revival through the work of companies like Tag, Theatre de Complicite and the influential methods of Jacques Lecoq. The second part of the book provides a unique practical guide for would-be practitioners: demonstrating how to approach the roles of Zanni, Arlecchion, Brighella, Pantalone, Dottore, and the Lovers in terms of movement, mask-work and voice. As well as offering a range of lazzi or comic business, improvisation exercises, sample monologues,and dialogues. No other book so clearly outlines the specific culture of Commedia or provides such a practical guide to its techniques. This immensely timely and useful handbook will be an essential purchase for all actors, students, and teachers.

  • Maurice Sand - Un artiste aux multiples talents (French Edition)

    Maurice Sand est né en 1823 à Paris. Trop longtemps cantonné dans son rôle de « fils de George Sand », avec qui il avait développé une relation fusionnelle, Maurice n'a jamais pu, malgré de réels dons artistiques et littéraires, atteindre la notoriété à laquelle il aspirait. Il en avait pourtant toutes les qualités ! Élève d'Eugène Delacroix, il excella dans la peinture, la caricature et le dessin. Il fut le créateur du théâtre des marionnettes à Nohant et à Paris. Il s'essaya également à la littérature et a laissé plusieurs romans non dénués d'intérêt. Passionné par les lépidoptères, il proposa un catalogue raisonné sur les papillons. Dans les dernières années de sa vie, il fut, en collaboration avec sa sœur Solange Clésinger, le premier éditeur de la correspondance de George Sand. Il mourut en 1889 au château de Nohant, propriété héritée de sa mère. Christophe Grandemange n'oublie pas d'évoquer la vie familiale et amicale de Maurice Sand. Il dépeint les relations avec sa mère et sa sœur, son mariage avec Lina Calamatta, ses joies et ses peines avec ses trois enfants, son voyage à travers le monde avec le prince Jérôme-Napoléon. Au fil des pages, l'auteur dresse ainsi le portrait d'un homme sensible et brillant. Après Gabrie...
