My book presents an interdisciplinary study of 'Japonisme' in the prose of four French authors from the 1800s: de Goncourt, Zola, Huysmans, and Mallarmé. Defined as the presence of techniques, styles, and motifs of Japanese art in nineteenth-century French painting, 'Japonisme' actually surpasses the boundaries of the visual, as writers also adapt these elements from painting to prose. I introduce a theoretical notion, 'aesthetic translation,' the process of writers integrating principles of painting, while I address issues of cultural communication implied in the reading of Eastern arts by representatives of the West. 'Japonisme' is essential in the development of French art, inviting aesthetic experimentation and foreshadowing Modernism.

Study will develop different approaches to the language of time and space as an expression of the dynamics of consciousness. An general distinction will be made among poets whose aim it is to create a mental time and space with its inner dialectic which manifested in the transcendence of human time and space, and those who communicate the will of the poet as homo-faber, he who works to endow language with the power to transform the exterior world and human experience and history. Poets studied will be Mallarme, Supervielle, Char, Saint-John Perse and Michaux.

"Facets" is a book-length study on the French poet Stéphane Mallarmé's diverse engagement with the concept of the book. The book was thoroughly entrenched in Mallarmé's writings and practice; it is not simply an abstract ideal but also an independent entrepreneurial venture, an art object, a theatrical performance, and a "bomb" designed to make way for a new society. Although a handful of studies have examined a single development of Mallarmé's engagement with the book, nobody has linked these individual developments and recognized the interrelated character of this multi-faceted ambition. In addition to providing a compelling model for examining the utopian and practical manifestations of the book in Mallarmeé's work, I situate this singular obsession within a larger historical framework of the debates that informed fin-de-siècle culture-a culture that simultaneously shunned yet thrived on reproductive technologies and modern developments in publishing. My project will be especially valuable because it responds to fundamental gaps in existing scholarship. Unlike for other French writers, there exist no full-scale art historical studies devoted to Mallarmé despite his sustained interaction with the visual arts. As an art historian with expertise in nineteenth-century French print culture, I will contribute a unique reading of Mallarmé's work, particularly with respect to the material dimension of his literary practice. For example, Mallarmé was one of the first French literary figures to tap into the expanding network of fine arts printmaking to publish his own books. Moreover, he played a fundamental role in forging a new category of the modern book known as the "painter's book" at a time when most writers, including Mallarmé, were adamantly opposed to illustration. Finally, I contribute new and compelling scholarship concerning the impact of mass media on the poet's theories of reading and looking.

This book project traces the rise of popular interest in museums dedicated to famous literary figures in late 19th and early 20th-century France. Combining literary analysis with the histories of photojournalism, science and the museum, I argue that “writer houses” developed from a pre-existing interest in consecrating important social figures, which was heightened and modified after 1880 by the illustrated periodical press. Photojournalism and new approaches to the science of collection and display were responsible for a shift from interest in famous people as revered national heroes, worthy of public monuments, to more intimate and obsessive cults housed in private rooms, apartments, and museums.

Study of the complete works of Rimbaud; meets difficulties of interpretation head-on as it proposes the first "word by word" study of Rimbaud ABSTRACT: Study of complete worlds of Rimbaud, meets difficulties of interpretation head-on a proposes first "word by word" study of Rimbaud. Method one of totaly responsibility to text; approach is integral and phenomenological, i.e., complete open-mindedness plus synthetic view which sees every element in a life, life-work as connected, ideally and theoretically. Study begins with a 60-page introduction, outlining method, overall approach and giving synthetic view of Rimbaud's temperament and career. Then each poem, in chronological order, treated seperately and in light of total approach. Proposes variety of critical methods; creative condition proper (reliving a given deep experirence); anthropological (few poets have equalled Rimbaud's capacity to generate modern myth); political (numerous revolutionary poems); or purely aesthetic. Of all 19th century French poets, Rimbaud considered most relevant to our times; today's youth powerfully to him, thus, understanding of his psychology, vision, art can be help to understanding contemporary times. Author's four books on Mallarme, using same method and approach, recognized by authorities as "opening new era" in Mallarme criticism. Proposes to do same for Rimbaud. Funds for travel abroad, salary.
