Détails: Esta obra ofrece parte de las comunicaciones y conferencias que se presentaron con motivo de la celebración del el XXIV Coloquio Internacional de la Asociación de Francesistas de la Universidad Española. En torno al lema Metáforas de la luz se reunieron un grupo de profesores investigadores de los estudios franceses y francófonos de la Universidad española pero también de otros centros académicos y de investigación nacionales e internacionales. Las metáforas, tanto literarias como lingüísticas, encuentran su sentido en la vida cotidiana. Desde la literatura, el uso de metáforas se inscribe en el valor poético del discurso en general; desde la lingüística, el uso de enunciados metafóricos conduce al análisis de diferentes tipos de léxico y expresiones semánticas. Las expresiones metafóricas conviven con las diferentes identidades culturales, estableciendo diferentes categorizaciones y sentidos desde la filosofía o el cognitivismo. El tema del coloquio se enmarcó en el entorno de la provincia pero el debate se extendió a cada uno de los ámbitos de los estudios franceses y francófonos en sus diferentes aspectos: literarios, lingüísticos, didácticos, así como todo lo relacionado con la cultura francófona y la traducción.

Détails: Fin Août 1944, une colonne disparate d’Allemands démobilisés fait étape dans une ferme de Wallonie et réquisitionne chevaux et chariots pour rentrer chez eux. Indigné, Mutien, un des enfants du lieu, entraîne son frère sur les traces du convoi dans le but de reprendre Gaillard de Graux, un brabançon prestigieux, orgueil de son père, lui-même victime des nazis. Entre inconscience et témérité, les deux garçons pénètrent au cœur d’un pays ruiné matériellement et moralement. Ils connaissent six semaines de dangers terribles et d’inoubliables moments de fraternité. Sur le pied de guerre, ils donnent du fil à retordre au détachement ainsi qu’à un vieil officier de la Wehrmacht qui les a pris en sympathie et s’évertue à les protéger. Récit où le quotidien tisse insidieusement des liens d’amitié et d’entraide entre clans ennemis, le roman est aussi un conte qui fait un sort à des rancunes généralistes et tenaces. Il pose la simple question de l’erreur et de son pardon et, au-delà, se penche sur ces écueils de l’existence qui, à l’instar de Gaillard de Graux, nous amènent à emprunter d’autres chemins que les voies tracées.

Détails: In Camino Walk, Marie-Laure Valandro takes readers on a very personal pilgrimage along the centuries-old Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. The Camino de Santiago de Compostela (the Way of St James) is literally a path of devotion to the beings of Christianity to Christ, to Mary, and to Saint James, for whom the Camino and the cathedral at the end are named. The Camino de Santiago winds its way through terrain that ranges from high plateaus to rugged mountain trails. It is a challenging pilgrimage during which inner and outer paths meet. Beginning in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques of southern France, the author traveled approximately 800 kilometers to Santiago on the northwest coast of Spain. Along the way, with the many other pilgrims on the path, she experienced an international community of the heart, shared by the many thousands of pilgrims of past, present, and future who have walked the path for more than a thousand years. Marie-Laure Valandro offers her fascinating and personal observations of the Camino and its fellowship, joys, pains, and hardships. She describes the many pilgrims she encountered and, most important, invites the reader to share her interior journey to Santiago and to wholeness. Camino Walk offers a step-by-step account of the transformation that is possible when ordinary life falls away and we make room for gratitude and wonder for all that we encounter on our own path."

Détails: Aubertin d'Avalon En cette fin du xiie siècle, où s'invente un monde nouveau, comment Aubertin d'Avalon, bâtisseur de cathédrale et maître sculpteur, peut-il deviner que la mission que lui ont confiée les Templiers va le jeter sur les routes de l'Orient, faire de lui un pèlerin de la Flamme Sainte, le transformer en incendiaire mystique ? Voici de Paris à Jérusalem, en passant par Chartres, le grand roman d'une initiation où la fureur des temps n'a d'égale que l'élévation spirituelle. En quittant le chantier de Notre-Dame et les rêves de pierre blanche pour sculpter l'impossible statue de l'épouse défunte qui hante son atelier et ses jours, Aubertin entame le plus secret des voyages pour l'Ordre du Temple. En marge de la croisade où bataillent ses fils, sa recherche le mènera du côté des carrières, des lieux de silence et d'une vallée de lépreux à la rencontre avec la princesse di Morra qui transmutera sa quête du Feu Divin en chemin vers la lumière de la vie. A l'heure où se dénoue son destin, il apprend, ultime leçon, qu'en face des bûchers de l'histoire demeure, indéracinable, l'espérance. Bernard Tirtiaux, qui vit en Belgique dans une ancienne ferme, aménagée en théâtres et en ateliers, est aussi maître verrier et sculpteur. Il est l'auteur, entre autres, du Passeur de Lumière qui a connu un vif succès.

Détails: Colleen McCullough’s new, romantic Australian novel about four unforgettable sisters taking their places in life during the tumultuous years after World War I is “just as epic as her ultra-romantic classic, The Thorn Birds” (Marie Claire). Because they are two sets of twins, the four Latimer sisters are as close as can be. Yet each of these vivacious young women has her own dream for herself: Edda wants to be a doctor, Grace wants to marry, Tufts wants never to marry, and Kitty wishes to be known for something other than her beauty. They are famous throughout New South Wales for their beauty, wit, and ambition, but as they step into womanhood at the beginning of the twentieth century, life holds limited prospects for them. Together they decide to enroll in a training program for nurses—a new option for women of their time. As the Latimer sisters become immersed in hospital life and the demands of their training, each must make weighty decisions about love, career, and what she values most. The results are sometimes happy, sometimes heartbreaking, but always…bittersweet. Set against the background of a young and largely untamed nation, “filled with humor, insight, and captivating historical detail, McCullough’s latest is a wise and warm tribute to family, female empowerment, and her native land” (People).

Détails: Unsealing the hatch of a rusty old WWII tank will unleash a demonic nightmare in this novel by “the master of modern horror” (Library Journal). Thirty-five years have passed since the Allied invasion of Normandy on D-Day turned the tide of World War II against Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Reich, and it’s been more than three decades since the residents of the tiny French village of Le Vey witnessed the horrific slaughter of hundreds of German soldiers by thirteen black tanks. One of the tanks remains on the outskirts of town—its hatch mysteriously sealed, trapping its controller inside—only to be discovered by American surveyor and cartographer Dan McCook. Driven by curiosity and an inexplicable compulsion, McCook is about to do the unthinkable and release what lives within the tank upon an unsuspecting world. And once the monstrous occupant reunites with others of its demonic kind, a new world war will begin, one that threatens to wash the earth in blood and drag every man, woman, and child through the fiery gates of hell. A chilling and ingeniously original tale of demonic possession and apocalyptic possibilities, The Devils of D-Day is classic horror at its best, from the award-winning author of The Manitou.

Détails: Winner of the Wolfson History Prize, and described by A.S.Byatt as 'one of the finest biographies ever published', this is Fiona MacCarthy's magisterial biography of William Morris, legendary designer and father of the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement. 'Thrilling, absorbing and majestic.' Independent 'Wonderfully ambitious ... The definitive Morris biography.' Sunday Times 'Delicious and intelligent, full of shining detail and mysteries respected.' Daily Telegraph 'Oh, the careful detail of this marvellous book! . . . A model of scholarly biography'. New Statesman Since his death in 1896, William Morris has been celebrated as a giant of the Victorian era. But his genius was so multifaceted and so profound that its full extent has rarely been grasped. Many people may find it hard to believe that the greatest English designer of his time - possibly of all time - could also be internationally renowned as a founder of the socialist movement, and ranked as a poet with Tennyson and Browning. In her definitive biography - insightful, comprehensive, addictively readable - the award-winning Fiona MacCarthy gives us a richly detailed portrait of Morris's complex character for the first time, shedding light on his immense creative powers as artist and designer of furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, stained glass, tapestry, and books; his role as a poet, novelist and translator; on his psychology and his emotional life; his frenetic activities as polemicist and reformer; and his remarkable circle of friends, literary, artistic and political, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones. It is a masterpiece of biographical art.

Détails: Now an HBO series starring Kathryn Hahn! “Light, zingy, and laugh-out-loud funny” (People), the New York Times bestselling novel about sex, love, and identity as seen through the eyes of a middle-aged woman and her college freshman son. A forty-six-year-old divorcee whose beloved only child has just left for college, Eve Fletcher is struggling to adjust to her empty nest. One night she receives a text from an anonymous number that says, “U R my MILF!” Over the months that follow, that message comes to obsess Eve. While leading her all-too-placid life—serving as Executive Director of the local senior center and taking a community college course on Gender and Society—Eve can’t curtail her own interest in a porn website that features the erotic exploits of ordinary, middle-aged women like herself. Before long, Eve’s online fixations begin to spill over into real life, revealing new romantic possibilities that threaten to upend her quiet suburban existence. Meanwhile, miles away at the state college, Eve’s son Brendan—a jock and aspiring frat boy—discovers that his new campus isn’t nearly as welcoming to his hard-partying lifestyle as he had imagined. Only a few weeks into his freshman year, Brendan is floundering in a college environment that challenges his white-dude privilege and shames him for his outmoded, chauvinistic ideas of sex. As the New England autumn turns cold, both mother and son find themselves enmeshed in morally fraught situations that come to a head on one fateful November night. “The sweetest and most charming novel about pornography addiction and the harrowing issues of sexual consent that you will probably ever read” (The New York Times Book Review), Mrs. Fletcher is a timeless examination of sexuality, identity, parenthood, and the big clarifying mistakes people can make when they’re no longer sure of who they are or where they belong. “Tom Perrotta’s latest might just be his best” (NPR).

Détails: How do we reclaim our innate enchantment with the world? And how can we turn our natural curiosity into a deep, abiding love for knowledge? Frank Oppenheimer, the younger brother of the physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, was captivated by these questions, and used his own intellectual inquisitiveness to found the Exploratorium, a powerfully influential museum of human awareness in San Francisco, that encourages play, creativity, and discovery—all in the name of understanding. In this elegant biography, K. C. Cole investigates the man behind the museum with sharp insight and deep sympathy. The Oppenheimers were a family with great wealth and education, and Frank, like his older brother, pursued a career in physics. But while Robert was unceasingly ambitious, and eventually came to be known for his work on the atomic bomb, Frank’s path as a scientist was much less conventional. His brief fling with the Communist Party cost him his position at the University of Minnesota, and he subsequently spent a decade ranching in Colorado before returning to teaching. Once back in the lab, however, Frank found himself moved to create something to make the world meaningful after the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He was inspired by European science museums, and he developed a dream of teaching Americans about science through participatory museums. Thus was born the magical world of the Exploratorium, forever revolutionizing not only the way we experience museums, but also science education for years to come. Cole has brought this charismatic and dynamic figure to life with vibrant prose and rich insight into Oppenheimer as both a scientist and an individual.
