            This textbook teaches the basics of French grammar, reinforcing its lessons with exercises and key practice translations. A systematic guide, the volume is a critical companion for university-level students learning to read and translate written French into English; for graduate ...scholars learning to do research in French or prepping for proficiency exams; and for any interested readers who want to improve their facility with the French language. In addition, A Short Course in Reading French exposes readers to a broad range of French texts from the humanities and social sciences, including writings by distinguished francophone authors from around the world. The book begins with French pronunciation and cognates and moves through nouns, articles, and prepositions; verbs, adjectives, and adverbs; a graduated presentation of all the indicative and subjunctive tenses; object, relative, and other pronouns; the passive voice; common idiomatic constructions; and other fundamental building blocks of the French language. Chapters contain translation passages from such authors as Pascal, Montesquieu, Proust, Sartre, Bourdieu, Senghor, C??saire, de Certeau, de Beauvoir, Barthes, and Kristeva. Drawn from more than two decades of experience teaching French to students from academic and nonacademic backgrounds, Celia Brickman's clear, accessible, and time-tested format enables even beginners to develop a sophisticated grasp of the language and become adept readers of French. There is an answer key for translation exercises and for non-copyrighted translation passages available to professors and teachers who have assigned this title in a class. Please provide your name, title, institution, and number of students in the course in an email to coursematerials@columbiauniversitypress.com.

            Un livre de vingt-huit nouvelles et poemes se blottissant au coeur meme de nos familles, dans notre vie de tous les jours, celle faite de petits riens et de grands n'importe quoi, celle qui va trop vite et celle qui blesse parfois. Ce sont les histoires de ces trentenaires qui co...urent apres le temps, se cognent puis trebuchent trop souvent. Les histoires de ces couples qui s'aiment malgre tout. Les histoires de ces jeunes parents qui se trompent, s'epuisent et cherissent si fort leurs enfants. Des histoires courtes, des pages sourdes. Des lignes haletantes, puis les suivantes. Suivre la cadence. Rire, pleurer et entrer dans la danse. Ce sont vos vies en poesie.

            For most of his life, Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was the most famous writer in the world. His legacy includes the nineteenth century's most celebrated works of drama, fiction, memoir, and criticism. But in his day Hugo was know foremost as a poet-indeed the greatest French poet of t...he age. He wrote with passion about history, erotic experience, familial love, philosophy, nature, social justice, art, and mysticism. In this new bicentennial edition, acclaimed poet and translator Brooks Haxton offers an exquisite selection of Hugo's finest work: love poems, historical tableaux, elegy, and idyll, including his incomparable Boaz Asleep, which Marcel Proust praised as the most beautiful poem of the nineteenth century. One of those rare and providential minds who in the domain of literature bring about the salvation of us all. (Charles Baudelaire)

            Le Flaubert rA(c)el establishes a new concept of realism in Flaubert research. This re-definition is the result on the one hand of an occupation with disciplines such as medicine and psychiatry. On the other, following Hegela (TM)s definition of Romantic art and Auerbacha (TM)s s...tudies on the gospel and realism, modern literature has its primal scene in the incarnation and crucifixion. It is born out of the spirit of an anti-christian Christianity, which turns out to be a metamorphosis of antique idolatries. Yet this progressive gestus of a critique of Christianity only provides one aspect. On the back of this irony, Flaubert establishes modern literature by unfathomably out-christianising Christianity beyond all secularisation.
