The book's protagonist is an English scientist and gentleman inventor living in Richmond, Surrey, in Victorian England, and identified by a narrator simply as the Time Traveller. The narrator recounts the Traveller's lecture to his weekly dinner guests that time is simply a fourth dimension and his demonstration of a tabletop model machine for travelling through it. He reveals that he has built a machine capable of carrying a person through time, and returns at dinner the following week to recount a remarkable tale, becoming the new narrator. Londres, à l’extrême fin du xixe siècle. Dans la maison d’un savant, un groupe d’amis écoute celui qui prétend être le premier voyageur du temps narrer ses aventures.Le voyageur du temps commence son récit en décrivant le monde de l’an 802 701. La Terre est habitée par les Éloïs, descendants des hommes. Androgynes, simplets et doux, ils passent leur temps à jouer tels des enfants et à manger des fruits dans le grand jardin qu’est devenue la Terre. À la surface de celle-ci, ne subsiste plus aucune mauvaise herbe, ni aucune autre espèce animale. Le monde semble être devenu un paradis.

Against Nature is the perfect illustration of Oscar Wilde's famous paradox that life imitates art, and not the other way around. First published in Paris in 1884 when the Naturalistic school - of which Huysmans himself was a major figure - was at its height, it delivered a body-blow to Zola's brand of literary realism, and almost single-handedly redefined the literary and artistic canon of the nineteenth century in the process. To a rising generation of readers, writers and artists across Europe, Huysmans' novel was the instruction manual of a movement that was to become emblematic of fin-de-siecle France: Decadence. The novel tells the story of its decadent aristocratic anti-hero, Jean Floressas des Esseintes, who, bored by the aesthetic and carnal pleasures the Parisian beau monde has to offer, decides to sell up and move to an isolated house in the suburbs. There he constructs a world of artifice that exactly minors his super-subtle, perverse and painfully neurotic sensibility. The result is one of the most bizarre, intriguing and influential books of the period. Whether read as an existential fable, psychological analysis, style manual, cultural critique or social satire, the novel remains as audacious and original today as when first published.

Die deutsche Erstübersetzung des autobiographisch gefärbten Romans zum 100. Todestag des Autors am 12. Mai 2007 André und Cyprien, der eine Schriftsteller, der andere Maler, sind Freunde seit der Kinderzeit. Nunmehr in den Dreißigern, begegnen sie uns im Paris der 1880er Jahre in einer Verfassung erheblicher Desillusionierung. Beide zweifeln am Wert ihrer Kunst, beide betrachten äußerst skeptisch das andere Geschlecht. André hatte zögerlich und wenig überzeugt in die Heirat mit der zwanzigjährigen Berthe eingewilligt. Als er plötzlich völlig überrascht bei einer verfrühten nächtlichen Heimkehr in seiner Wohnung dem unbekleideten Liebhaber seiner Frau gegenübersteht, sieht er sich ausweglos einer Ehekrise ausgeliefert. Vor diesem Hintergrund entwickelt Huysmans mit der ganzen Kraft seiner Sprache ein Kaleidoskop eines anderen Paris, wo Farben, Gerüche aber auch städtische Häßlichkeit und Trostlosigkeit dominieren, und andererseits werden bürgerliche Engstirnigkeit sowie das ewige Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit schonungslos seziert. Orientiert an seinem Fixstern Baudelaire formt der Autor ein Abbild der Stadt, das zugleich Abbild menschlicher Triebkräfte ist. ›Trugbilder‹ ist auch ein autobiographisch gefärbter Roman: der Kunstkritiker und Schriftsteller Huysmans spiegelt in André und Cyprien die ganze Breite seines künstlerischen Vermögens. Der Roman aus dem Jahr 1881 bildet eine entscheidende Voraussetzung für den Kultroman ›Gegen den Strich‹, der drei Jahre später erschienen ist.

In this sparkling new work, Benedict Anderson provides a radical recasting of themes from Imagined Communities, his classic book on nationalism, through an exploration of fin-de-siecle politics and culture that spans the Caribbean, Imperial Europe and the South China Sea. A jewelled pomegranate packed with nitroglycerine is primed to blow away Manila's 19th-century colonial elite at the climax of El Filibusterismo, whose author, the great political novelist Jose Rizal, was executed in 1896 by the Spanish authorities in the Philippines at the age of 35. Anderson explores the impact of avant-garde European literature and politics on Rizal and his contemporary, the pioneering folklorist Isabelo de los Reyes, who was imprisoned in Manila after the violent uprisings of 1896 and later incarcerated, together with Catalan anarchists, in the prison fortress of Montjuich in Barcelona. On his return to the Philippines, by now under American occupation, Isabelo formed the first militant trade unions under the influence of Malatesta and Bakunin. Anderson considers the complex intellectual interactions of these young Filipinos with the new "science" of anthropology in Germany and Austro-Hungary, and with post-Communard experimentalists in Paris, against a background of militant anarchism in Spain, France, Italy and the Americas, Jose Marti's armed uprising in Cuba and anti-imperialist protests in China and Japan. In doing so, he depicts the dense intertwining of anarchist internationalism and radical anti-colonialism. Under Three Flags is a brilliantly original work on the explosive history of national independence and global politics.

The Futurist movement was founded and promoted by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, beginning in 1909 with the First Futurist Manifesto, in which he inveighed against the complacency of "cultural necrophiliacs" and sought to annihilate the values of the past, writing that "there is no longer any beauty except the struggle. Any work of art that lacks a sense of aggression can never be a masterpiece." In the years that followed, up until his death in 1944, Marinetti, through both his polemical writings and his political activities, sought to transform society in all its aspects. As Günter Berghaus writes in his introduction, "Futurism sought to bridge the gap between art and life and to bring aesthetic innovation into the real world. Life was to be changed through art, and art was to become a form of life." This volume includes more than seventy of Marinetti's most important writings—many of them translated into English for the first time—offering the reader a representative and still startling selection of texts concerned with Futurist art, literature, politics, and philosophy.

Recasting French literary history in terms of the cultures and peoples that interacted within and outside of France's national boundaries, this volume offers a new way of looking at the history of a national literature, along with a truly global and contemporary understanding of language, literature, and culture. The relationship between France's national territory and other regions of the world where French is spoken and written (most of them former colonies) has long been central to discussions of "Francophonie." Boldly expanding such discussions to the whole range of French literature, the essays in this volume explore spaces, mobilities, and multiplicities from the Middle Ages to today. They rethink literary history not in terms of national boundaries, as traditional literary histories have done, but in terms of a global paradigm that emphasizes border crossings and encounters with "others." Contributors offer new ways of reading canonical texts and considering other texts that are not part of the traditional canon. By emphasizing diverse conceptions of language, text, space, and nation, these essays establish a model approach that remains sensitive to the specificities of time and place and to the theoretical concerns informing the study of national literatures in the twenty-first century.
