Letters to Milena by , Summary

In no other work does Franz Kafka reveal himself as in Letters to Milena, which begins as a business correspondence but soon develops into a passionate but doomed epistolary love affair. Kafka's Czech translator, Milena Jesenska, was a gifted and charismatic twenty-three-year-old who was uniquely able to recognize Kafka's complex genius and his even more complex character. For the thirty-six-year-old Kafka, she was "a living fire, such as I have never seen." It was to Milena that he revealed his most intimate self and, eventually, entrusted his diaries for safekeeping. "The voice of Kafka in Letters to Milena is more personal, more pure, and more painful than in his fiction: a testimony to human existence and to our eternal wait for the impossible. A marvelous new edition of a classic text." —Jan Kott

Vie de Milena by Jana Černá Summary

Biographie d'une intellectuelle et vision de l'histoire tchécoslovaque Milena n’était pas de ces gens qui tiennent une autorité quelle qu’elle soit pour absolue. Personne ne pouvait la forcer à écrire ou à parler contre ses convictions, dans quelque intérêt que ce fût, sous couvert de la discipline du Parti ou d’ autre chose. Jana Cerná Jana Cerná était encore une petite fille lorsqu’elle vit pour la dernière fois sa mère, Milena Jesenská, dans les couloirs de la prison de la Gestapo à Prague. Depuis sa mort à Ravensbrück en 1944, la journaliste Milena Jesenská n’a cessé de hanter l’opinion publique de son pays : exprimant ouvertement des prises de position antistaliniennes et antifascistes, elle est une des personnalités les plus remarquables de la société intellectuelle tchèque d’entre-deux-guerres. La publication des Lettres à Milena de Kafka révèle au monde celle qui fut aussi sa première traductrice. En 1955, l’Institut Yad Vashem de Jérusalem lui décerna en hommage posthume le titre de « Juste parmi les Nations ». Jana Cerná retrace la vie de sa mère à partir de ses propres souvenirs, de témoignages récoltés, de correspondances et d’articles. Frappé d’interdit à sa sortie en 1969 en Tchécoslovaquie, Vie de Milena restitue une image personnelle et intime de Milena Jesenská et s’avère également un passionnant document historique. Plongez-vous dans la vie d'une femme à contre-courant ! EXTRAIT Dès les premiers temps, Milena reconnaît la valeur littéraire de Kafka. La mesurant très tôt, elle agit en conséquence : elle s’ intéresse à ses oeuvres et entreprend leur traduction. Elle sent également qu’il possède une sorte de grandeur dont elle a l’intuition dès les premières lettres. Mais c’est une grandeur tellement particulière, tellement différente de son propre naturel à elle, qu’elle en éprouve comme une angoisse. CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE Jana Černá, que sa mère et ses proches (Egon Bondy, Bohumil Hrabal et bien d’autres) appelaient Honza, offre aux lecteurs un document passionnant, extrêmement fouillé et sensible. - Jacques Josse, remue.net Cette biographie vaut bien des romans, mais elle conserve sur ces derniers l'avantage d'avoir été vécue. Et puisque nous avons le désir de vouloir surprendre les hommes et les femmes dans leur vie intérieure profonde, faisons bon accueil à ce livre dont l'auteur a l'art d'aiguiser le tranchant des ses idées. L'art d'écrire en somme. - La Marseillaise À PROPOS DES AUTEURS Jana Černá naît à Prague en 1928, de l'architecte avant-gardiste J. Krejcar et de Milena Jesenská, la célèbre Milena de Kafka, journaliste et résistante. Confiée à son grand-père à la mort de ses parents, Jana Černá a suivi des études artistiques. Personnage fantasque à l'existence rocambolesque, elle est l'une des personnalités marquantes de la dissidence tchécoslovaque. Elle meurt en 1981 dans un accident de la route. Barbora Faure est née à Prague où elle a passé son enfance avant de vivre en France. Passionnée par la littérature de la dissidence tchèque, elle se lance dans la traduction dès 1968, d'abord d'ouvrages de vulgarisation naturaliste, puis d'oeuvres littéraires.

Letters to Ottla and the Family by Franz Kafka Summary

Written by Kafka between 1909 and 1924, these letters offer a unique insight into the workings of the Kafka family, their relationship with the Prague Jewish community, and Kafka's own feelings about his parents and siblings. A gracious but shy woman, and a silent rebel against the bourgeois society in which she lived, Ottla Kafka was the sibling to whom Kafka felt closest. He had a special affection for her simplicity, her integrity, her ability to listen, and her pride in his work. Ottla was deported to Theresienstadt during World War II, and volunteered to accompany a transport of children to Auschwitz in 1943. She did not survive the war, but her husband and daughters did, and preserved her brother's letters to her. They were published in the original German in 1974, and in English in 1982. "Kafka's touching letters to his sister, when she was a child and as a young married woman, are beautifully simple, tender, and fresh. In them one sees the side of his nature that was not estranged. It is lucky they have been preserved." —V. S. Pritchett, The New York Review of Books

Dictionnaire intime des femmes by Laure Adler Summary

" Ce livre est une invitation au voyage dans un étrange pays sans frontières, une terra incognita, un territoire où vit la moitié de l’humanité. On a dit que c’était un continent noir. Je pense, au contraire, qu’il est habité par la lumière et bruisse de toutes les voix qui, vivantes aujourd’hui ou venues du passé le plus lointain, ont construit notre histoire. Ce livre est un dictionnaire, donc une manière d’ “entrer” à sa guise dans ce vagabondage où des femmes très célèbres cohabitent avec des anonymes. Il est “intime”, car il est aussi, à mon insu, une sorte d’autobiographie. Dire qui l’on admire est inévitablement une forme de confession. Mon seul désir est de faire connaître ou reconnaître ces femmes, tant elles sont pour moi des exemples qui nous donnent courage, énergie, espoir. " Laure Adler

L’Intime épistolaire (1850-1900) by Jelena Jovicic Summary

L’Intime épistolaire (1850-1900): genre et pratique culturelle is a study of private letters by eight Nineteenth-Century French authors—Flaubert, Zola, Sand, Baudelaire, Maupassant, Eberhardt, Bashkirtseff and Edmond de Goncourt—during the period of 1850 to 1900. Through in-depth analyses of these intriguing documents, the book demonstrates that personal correspondences cast fresh light on the concept of intimacy in Nineteenth-Century French culture. Since epistolary writing implies a necessary exchange between lived experience and the written word, the book’s intention is also to interpret “letter practice” as a specific textual form, with its own generic expectations and constraints which are distinct from other life-writing genres such as the diary, the autobiography, and the memoir. Divided into five chapters, the study begins with a short introduction to the “culture of individuality.” The four subsequent chapters explore the poetics of epistolary writing, including significant topics, the various roles of the letter writer, epistolary pacts and the problem of the signature. Addressing a wide range of epistolary situations, including daily life, health, money problems, love, travel, and even suicide notes, the book also offers new critical perspectives on six of the most interesting manuscript letters that have been chosen from the examined sources.

Sillage de Kafka by Philippe Zard Summary

Le sillage de Kafka, c'est la postérité paradoxale d'un écrivain dont la stérilité en tous domaines était devenue le tourment, et qui n'en a pas moins inexorablement transformé notre manière de lire, d'écrire, et d'appréhender le monde. L'oeuvre de Kafka a été méditée - jusqu'à l'obsession -, célébrée - jusqu'à l'idolâtrie -, imitée - jusqu'au maniérisme. Sa personne même est devenue un mythe littéraire. La modernité fait un usage immodéré de la notion de « kafkaïen » pour caractériser ici un système politique, là une crise identitaire, tantôt une impuissance à agir, tantôt une incapacité à comprendre. Sillage de Kafka invite à une traversée des arts et de la littérature, tels que cette oeuvre les a transformés et ébranlés. On y croisera Sartre, Anders, Deleuze, Coetzee, Kertész...

Blind date - sexe et philosophie by Anne Dufourmantelle Summary

Blind date... se dit d’un rendez-vous à l’aveugle entre deux êtres susceptibles de s’aimer, organisé par un autre qui les connaît tous deux et ne sera pas là. La philosophie... commence avec l’étonnement (Aristote), se déclare science de l’être, s’espère soin de l’âme, s’étymologise amour de la sagesse, se voudrait éducation spirituelle, se rectifie en logique des propositions, s’attarde dans les manuels scolaires, s’écrit dans toutes les langues mais ne penserait qu’en une seule, s’éteint doucement. Le sexe... finit quand il faut s’expliquer, ne se commente qu’en disparaissant, bouleverse toute scénographie qui voudrait en isoler les effets, est là partout, tout le temps, manque partout, tout le temps. Le rendez-vous fut pris, dit-on, il y a trois mille ans. Officiellement du moins. Fut sans cesse reporté depuis.

Letters to Felice by Franz Kafka Summary

Franz Kafka first met Felice Bauer in August 1912, at the home of his friend Max Brod. The twenty-five-year-old career woman from Berlin—energetic, down-to-earth, life-affirming—awakened in him a desire to marry. Kafka wrote to Felice almost daily, sometimes even twice a day. Because he was living in Prague and she in Berlin, their letters became their sole source of knowledge of each other. But soon after their engagement in 1914, Kafka began having doubts about the relationship, fearing that marriage would imperil his dedication to writing and interfere with his need for solitude. Through their break-up, a second engagement in 1917, and their final parting later that year, when Kafka began falling ill with the tuberculosis that would eventually claim his life, their correspondence continued. The more than five hundred letters that Kafka wrote to Felice over the course of those five years were acquired by Schocken from her in 1955. They reveal the full measure of Kafka's inner turmoil as he tried, in vain, to balance his need for stability with the demands of his craft. "These letters are indispensable for anyone seeking a more intimate knowledge of Kafka and his fragmented world." —Library Journal

The Metamorphosis + In the Penal Colony (2 contemporary translations by Ian Johnston) by Franz Kafka Summary

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Metamorphosis + In the Penal Colony (2 contemporary translations by Ian Johnston)” contains 2 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Metamorphosis is a novella by Franz Kafka, first published in 1915. It has been cited as one of the seminal works of fiction of the 20th century and is studied in colleges and universities across the Western world. The story begins with a traveling salesman, Gregor Samsa, waking to find himself transformed (metamorphosed) into a large, monstrous insect-like creature. The cause of Samsa's transformation is never revealed, and Kafka never did give an explanation. The rest of Kafka's novella deals with Gregor's attempts to adjust to his new condition as he deals with being burdensome to his parents and sister, who are repulsed by the horrible, verminous creature Gregor has become. "In the Penal Colony" is a short story by Franz Kafka written in German in October 1914, and first published in October 1919. The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. Internal clues and the setting on an island suggest Octave Mirbeau's The Torture Garden as an influence. As in some of Kafka's other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror. In the Penal Colony describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours. As the plot unfolds, the reader learns more and more about the machine, including its origin and original justification. Franz Kafka (1883 – 1924) was a German-language writer of novels and short stories, regarded by critics as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. Kafka strongly influenced genres such as existentialism. Most of his works, such as The Metamorphosis, The Trial, and The Castle, are filled with the themes and archetypes of alienation, physical and psychological brutality, parent–child conflict, characters on a terrifying quest, labyrinths of bureaucracy, and mystical transformations.

The Habsburg Monarchy's Many-Languaged Soul by Michaela Wolf Summary

In the years between 1848 and 1918, the Habsburg Empire was an intensely pluricultural space that brought together numerous “nationalities” under constantly changing – and contested – linguistic regimes. The multifaceted forms of translation and interpreting, marked by national struggles and extensive multilingualism, played a crucial role in constructing cultures within the Habsburg space. This book traces translation and interpreting practices in the Empire’s administration, courts and diplomatic service, and takes account of the “habitualized” translation carried out in everyday life. It then details the flows of translation among the Habsburg crownlands and between these and other European languages, with a special focus on Italian–German exchange. Applying a broad concept of “cultural translation” and working with sociological tools, the book addresses the mechanisms by which translation and interpreting constructs cultures, and delineates a model of the Habsburg Monarchy’s “pluricultural space of communication” that is also applicable to other multilingual settings.

Kafka's Travels by J. Zilcosky Summary

In 1916, Kafka writes of The Sugar Baron , a dime-store colonial adventure novel, '[it] affects me so deeply that I feel it is about myself, or as if it were the book of rules for my life.' John Zilcosky reveals that this perhaps surprising statement - made by the Prague-bound poet of modern isolation - is part of a network of remarks that exemplify Kafka's ongoing preoccupation with popular travel writing, exoticism, and colonial fantasy. Taking this biographical peculiarity as a starting point, Kafka's Travels elegantly re-reads Kafka's major works ( Amerika , The Trial , The Castle ) through the lens of fin-de siecle travel culture. Making use of previously unexplored literary and cultural materials - travel diaries, train schedules, tour guides, adventure novels - Zilcosky argues that Kafka's uniquely modern metaphorics of alienation emerges out of the author's complex encounter with the utopian travel discourses of his day.
