« Chef-d'œuvre. » Quand ce très vieux mot du Moyen Âge utilisé pour l'artisanat a-t-il commencé à être appliqué à los angeles littérature ? Y a-t-il un critère du chef-d'œuvre littéraire ? Mieux, une recette ? remark être sûr qu'un livre est un chef-d'œuvre ? Un chef-d'œuvre est-il éternel ? l. a. postérité est-elle le bon juge ? Crée-t-on encore des chefs-d'œuvre aujourd'hui ? remark définir le chef-d'œuvre ?

C'est à toutes ces questions que tente de répondre ce livre. Parcourant les grands livres, de Homère à Heine et de Boccace à Beckett, il suggest une examine inattendue de l'œuvre de James Joyce aussi bien que des considérations sur ce que l'on peut penser des Aristochats de Walt Disney. Charles Dantzig montre encore une fois que l'on peut associer le brillant et los angeles réflexion, los angeles virtuosité et los angeles profondeur, l'érudition et l'esprit.

The power of dominant discourses is such that they have often been internalized by Indigenous people. It is thus never safe to assume that, for instance, Indigenous-authored works always resist dominant discourses, or that texts produced by non-Indigenous authors always support them. ”14 In the settler societies whose texts I consider, for instance, it “goes without saying” that Indigenous peoples did not utilize the resources of the land, that such underutilization was addressed through the processes of colonization, and that colonization, even though it involved violence and suffering for Indigenous peoples, was to be equated with progress.

40 Chris undermines Mr. Dougal’s claim to balance and accuracy by pointing to the discrepancy between the closure of The Sign of the Beaver and the facts of Penacook survival: 32 When Languages Collide Mr. Dougal has his hand on his chin now as he looks at me. I can’t tell what his look means, but it doesn’t shut me up. “Nda,” I say in Penacook. “No. We did not go away. ”41 Bruchac’s representation of this moment of resistance incorporates the Penacook word “Nda,” which is metonymic of the language and culture to which it gestures, and instantiates their endurance.
