French Short Stories
Author: Pamela Lyon, Simon Lee
Publisher: Penguin Group USA
The eight short stories in this collection, by Marcel Ayme, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Raymond Queneau and other French writers, have been selected for their literary merit and as representative of twentieth-century French writing. The English translations that are printed in a parallel text are literal rather than literary, and there are additional notes on the text. This volume is intended primarily to help English-speaking students of French, but the stories also stand on their own and make excellent reading in either language.
The study of women in antiquity is a well-established area of research in the classics. In The Erotics of Domination, Ellen Greene re-examines long-held scholarly attitudes concerning the representation of male sexual desire and female subjection in the Latin love poetry of Catullus, Propertius, and Ovid. Examining first-person poetic personae that have often been romanticized by critics, Greene finds that male sexuality is consistently threatened as moral resolve and social status are undermined by desires that render men passively "womanish": powerless and emotional.
By considering votive, mortuary and secular rituals, the volume offers a contribution to the continued study of Etruscan culture and gathers new material, interpretations and approaches to the less emphasized areas of Etruscan religion.
