Out of the Margins: The Rise of Chinese Vernacular Fiction.

Liangyan Ge, "Out of the Margins: The Rise of Chinese Vernacular Fiction".
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press | ISBN: 0824823702 | 2001 edition | PDF | 293 Pages | 2.60 MB

The novel "Water Margin" ("Shuihu zhuan"), China's earliest full-length narrative in vernacular prose, first appeared in print in the 16th century. The tale of 108 bandit heroes evolved from a long oral tradition; in its novelized form, it played a pivotal role in the rise of Chinese vernacular fiction, which flourished during the late Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) periods. Liangyan Ge's multidimensional study considers the evolution of "Water Margin" and the rise of vernacular fiction against the background of the vernacularization of premodern Chinese literature as a whole. This gradual and arduous process, as the book shows, was driven by sustained contact and interaction between written culture and popular orality.

Histoire et psychanalyse entre science et fiction

Michel de Certeau, "Histoire et psychanalyse entre science et fiction"
French | ASIN: B01M31NL9T | ISBN: 207079377X | 21 novembre 2016 | EPUB | 416 pages | 679.94 KB

Michel de Certeau est assurément une des figures les plus singulières, donc les plus importantes, de l'école historique française. Sans attendre le sauf-conduit au poste frontière ni solliciter l'agrément des gardiens des lieux, il a traversé les frontières entre les champs de savoir, devinant l'appauvrissement de l'histoire par confinement, anticipant l'ouverture aux disciplines autres à laquelle s'est aujourd'hui résolue cette discipline.
