Le jardin et la nature
Author: Danièle Duport
Publisher: Librairie Droz
L'homme de la Renaissance mesure ses pouvoirs dans le jardin du monde, car le jardin imite la variété et l'abondance de la nature, pose la concurrence entre le naturel originel et l'artificiel. L'enquête qui observe les jeux de miroir entre la littérature et le jardin réel, explore aussi le jardin de la quête intérieure et celui de la rhétorique.
The Spring Girls
Author: Anna Todd
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Four sisters desperately seeking the blueprints to life—the modern-day retelling of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women like only Anna Todd (After, Imagines) could do. The Spring Girls—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—are a force of nature on the New Orleans military base where they live. As different as they are, with their father on tour in Iraq and their mother hiding something, their fears are very much the same. Struggling to build lives they can be proud of and that will lift them out of their humble station in life, one year will determine all that their futures can become. The oldest, Meg, will be an officer’s wife and enter military society like so many of the women she admires. If her passion—and her reputation—don’t derail her. Beth, the workhorse of the family, is afraid to leave the house, is afraid she’ll never figure out who she really is. Jo just wants out. Wishing she could skip to graduation, she dreams of a life in New York City and a career in journalism where she can impact the world. Nothing can stop her—not even love. And Amy, the youngest, is watching all her sisters, learning from how they handle themselves. For better or worse. With plenty of sass, romance, and drama, The Spring Girls revisits Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women, and brings its themes of love, war, class, adolescence, and family into the language of the twenty-first century.

Quando Anastasia Steele entrevista o jovem empresário Christian Grey, descobre nele um homem atraente, brilhante e profundamente dominador. Ingênua e inocente, Ana se surpreende ao perceber que, a despeito da enigmática reserva de Grey, está desesperadamente atraída por ele.

Por trás da fachada de sucesso — os negócios multinacionais, a vasta fortuna, a amada família —, Grey é um homem atormentado por demônios do passado e consumido pela necessidade de controle. Quando eles embarcam num apaixonado e sensual caso de amor, Ana não só descobre mais sobre seus próprios desejos, como também sobre os segredos obscuros que Grey tenta manter escondidos...

Olivier Clément a toujours été un passionné de littérature ; la lecture des romanciers et des poètes a accompagné toute sa vie. Une lecture toujours existentielle et spirituelle, au sens plein du terme, comme un dévoilement de tout l'être. Sartre, Rimbaud ou Camus ; T S Eliot, Claude Vigée ou Pierre Emmanuel ; et, bien sûr, Dostoïevski, Soljenitsyne ou Bloy... Sont réunis ici des textes sur ces auteurs, où le grand penseur orthodoxe nous partage son interprétation. Ils sont accompagnés de réflexions plus théoriques sur les liens entre création et foi.
Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID
Author: James Ensor, Xavier Tricot
Publisher: Hatje Cantz Pub
The innovative Ensor is considered to be the main forerunner of modern art in Belgium. His avant-garde work had a decisive influence on German Expressionism as well as on French and Belgian Surrealism. Masks, frenzied carnivalesque scenes and macabre tableaux are among the recurring elements in his oeuvre. Ensor was at ease in all styles. He remarked of himself that he "changed styles as easily as changing shirts." The full diversity of Ensor's oeuvre is presented in this catalogue raisonné, illustrated with a majority of color plates. The book also includes a detailed and fully illustrated chronology of Ensor's life and work.
