During the year 1866, ships of several nations spot a mysterious sea monster, which some suggest to be a giant narwhal. The United States government assembles an expedition in New York City to find and destroy the monster. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist and narrator of the story, who happens to be in New York at the time, receives a last-minute invitation to join the expedition which he accepts. The ship finds the monster after a long search and then attacks the beast, which damages the ship's rudder. The three protagonists are then hurled into the water and grasp hold of the "hide" of the creature, which they find, to their surprise, to be a submarine very far ahead of its era. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo. L'apparition d'une bête monstrueuse en 1866 dans plusieurs mers du globe défraie la chronique. L'animal, rapide, fusiforme et phosphorescent, est responsable de plusieurs naufrages, brisant le bois des navires avec une force colossale. De retour d'une expédition dans le Nebraska, Pierre Aronnax, professeur suppléant au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, émet l'hypothèse d'un narval géant. Les compagnies d'assurances maritimes menacent d'augmenter leurs prix et demandent que le monstre soit éliminé. Une grande chasse est alors organisée à bord de l’Abraham Lincoln, fleuron de la marine américaine, mené par le commandant Farragut. Aronnax reçoit une lettre du secrétaire de la Marine lui demandant de rejoindre l’expédition pour représenter la France. Le scientifique embarque avec son fidèle domestique flamand, Conseil. Après des mois de navigation, la confrontation avec le monstre a enfin lieu, et l'Abraham Lincoln est endommagé. Un choc entre le monstre et la frégate projette Aronnax, Conseil et Ned par-dessus bord. Ils échouent finalement sur le dos du monstre, qui n'est autre qu'un sous-marin en tôle armée. Les naufragés sont faits prisonniers et se retrouvent à bord du mystérieux appareil. Ils font alors connaissance du capitaine Nemo, qui refuse de leur rendre la liberté.

Recipient of the 2005 Governor General's Literary Award in non-fiction, Quand la nation débordait les frontières is considered the most comprehensive analysis of Lionel Groulx's work and vision as an intellectual leader of a nationalist school that extended well beyond the borders of Québec. For over five decades, historians and intellectuals have defined the nationalist discourse primarily in territorial terms. In this regard, Groulx has been portrayed—more often than not—as the architect of Québecois nationalism. Translated by Ferdinanda Van Gennip, A Nation Beyond Borders will continue to spark debate on Groulx's description of the parameters of the French-Canadian nation. Highlighting the often neglected role of French-Canadian minorities in his thought, this book presents the Canon as an uncompromising advocate of solidarity between all French-Canadian communities.
French Romantic Travel Writing

French Romantic Travel Writing

This book provides a pioneering overview of the travel books produced by fourteen French Romantic writers in the first half of the nineteenth century. Their journeys ranged from Peru to Russia and from North America to North Africa and the Near East. A number of these books are acknowledged masterpieces of Romantic prose, and this study shows how their literary qualities enabled these writers (in spite of some self-indulgence) to explore fruitful approaches to theportrayal of other cultures. The book is especially concerned to show how writing such works became something of a rite of passage for French Romantics and why they published more of them than their English and German counterparts. This proves to have much to do with the demands of French culturalpolicy as it competed with British expansion after the defeat of Napoleon.

The Age of Bowie

The Age of Bowie

Author: Paul Morley

Author and industry insider Paul Morley explores the musical and cultural legacies left behind by “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” Respected arts commentator and author Paul Morley, an artistic advisor to the curators of the highly successful retrospective exhibition David Bowie is for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, constructs a definitive story of Bowie that explores how he worked, played, aged, structured his ideas, influenced others, invented the future, and entered history as someone who could and would never be forgotten. Morley captures the greatest moments from across Bowie’s life and career; how young Davie Jones of South London became the international David Bowie; his pioneering collaborations in the recording studio with the likes of Tony Visconti, Mick Ronson, and Brian Eno; to iconic live, film, theatre, and television performances from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, as well as the various encounters and artistic relationships he developed with musicians from John Lennon, Lou Reed, and Iggy Pop to Trent Reznor and Arcade Fire. And of course, discusses in detail his much-heralded and critically acclaimed finale with the release of Blackstar just days before his shocking death in New York. Morley offers a startling biographical critique of David Bowie’s legacy, showing how he never stayed still even when he withdrew from the spotlight, how he always knew his own worth, and released a dazzling plethora of personalities, concepts, and works into the world with a single-minded determination and a voluptuous imagination to create something the likes of which the world had never seen before—and likely will never see again.

Les anciens racontent que les éléphants ont écrit des sentences en grec et que l'un d'eux, même, a parlé. Il n'y a donc rien d'invraisemblable à ce que l'éléphant blanc dont il s'agit ici, le fameux Iravata, si célèbre dans toute l'Asie, ait pu écrire ses mémoires. L'histoire de sa longue existence, tantôt glorieuse, tantôt misérable, à travers le royaume de Siam, l'Inde des maharajahs et des Anglais, est d'ailleurs pleine d'imprévu et des plus curieuses. Après avoir été presque une idole, Iravata devient un guerrier; il est fait prisonnier avec son maître qu'il délivre et sauve de la mort. Puis il est jugé digne d'être le gardien et l'ami de la merveilleuse petite princesse Parvati, pour laquelle il invente d'extraordinaires jeux et qui le réduit en un doux esclavage. On verra comment un vilain sentiment, qui se glisse dans le cœur du bon éléphant, si sage d'ordinaire le sépare pour longtemps de sa chère princesse, le jette dans les aventures de toutes sortes et lui cause de cuisants chagrins. Mais enfin, il retrouve sa fidèle amie et le pardon lui rend le bonheur.
