Annie Ernaux: Le jeune homme

En quelques pages, à la première personne, Annie Ernaux (1940) raconte une relation vécue avec un homme de trente ans de moins qu’elle.

 

Une expérience qui la fit redevenir, l’espace de plusieurs mois, la « fille scandaleuse » de sa jeunesse.

Un voyage dans le temps qui lui permit de franchir une étape décisive dans son écriture.

Ce texte est une clé pour lire l’œuvre d’Annie Ernaux — son rapport au temps et à l’écriture.

Tishani Doshi: Everything Begins Elsewhere

In her first poetry collection since the award-winning Countries of the Body, Tishani Doshi returns to the body as a central theme, but extends beyond the corporeal to challenge the more metaphysical borders of space and time.

These poems are powerful meditations born on the joineries of life and death, union and separation, memory and dream, where lovers speak to each other across the centuries, and daughters wander into their mothers’ childhoods.

As much about loss as they are about reclamation, Doshi’s poems guide us through an ‘underworld of longing and deliverance’, making the exhilarating claim that through the act of vanishing, we may be shaped into existence again.

Everything Begins Elsewhere was followed by two further collections, Girls Are Coming Out of the Woods in 2018, and A God at the Door in 2021.

These poems move in different directions, as true poetry should. We hear in them joy and sadness, praise and lament, love and disenchantment – simultaneously. Tishani Doshi speaks courageously about herself, about her choices, about the growing shadows. It’s a beautiful book’ – Adam Zagajewski

Tishani Doshi is an award-winning poet and dancer of Welsh-Gujarati descent. She was born in Madras, India, in 1975. She received her masters in writing from the Johns Hopkins University in America and worked in London in advertising before returning to India in 2001 to work with the choreographer Chandralekha, with whom she performed on many international stages. An avid traveller, she has been trekking in the Ethiopian Bale Mountains, visited Antarctica with a group of high-school students, and documented the largest transgender gathering in Koovakam. She has written about her travels in newspapers such as the Guardian, International Herald Tribune, The Hindu and the Financial Times.

She won an Eric Gregory Award for her poetry in 2001. In 2006, she won the All-India Poetry Competition, and her debut collection, Countries of the Body (Aark Arts), won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. Her first novel, The Pleasure Seekers (Bloomsbury, 2010), was longlisted for the Orange Prize and shortlisted for the Hindu Fiction Award, and has been translated into several languages. Her second poetry collection, Everything Begins Elsewhere, was published by Bloodaxe Books in 2012. Fountainville: new stories from the Mabinogion was published by Seren in 2013. Her third collection, Girls Are Coming Out of the Woods (Bloodaxe Books, 2018), is a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry 2018 in the UK, and for the poetry category of the 2019 Firecracker Awards in the US. Her second novel, Small Days and Nights (Bloomsbury, 2019), was shortlisted for the RSL Ondaatje Prize. Her fourth poetry collection, A God at the Door (Bloodaxe Books, 2021), was shortlisted for the 2021 Forward Prize for Best Collection.

Tishani Doshi lives on a beach between two fishing villages in Tamil Nadu with her husband and dogs. She is currently Visiting Associate Professor of Practice, Literature and Creative Writing at New York University, Abu Dhabi. For more information, see her website www.tishanidoshi.com.

Consequences of Capitalism: Manufacturing Discontent and Resistance by Noam Chomsky (Author), Marv Waterstone (Author)

Is there an alternative to capitalism? In this landmark text Chomsky and Waterstone chart a critical map for a more just and sustainable society.

Covid-19 has revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities in the current capitalist system. It represents both a crisis and an opportunity. Everything depends on the actions that people take into their own hands.’

How does politics shape our world, our lives and our perceptions? How much of ‘common sense’ is actually driven by the ruling classes’ needs and interests? And how are we to challenge the capitalist structures that now threaten all life on the planet?

Consequences of Capitalism exposes the deep, often unseen connections between neoliberal ‘common sense’ and structural power. In making these linkages, we see how the current hegemony keeps social justice movements divided and marginalized. And, most importantly, we see how we can fight to overcome these divisions.

Is our “common sense” understanding of the world a reflection of the ruling class’s demands of the larger society? If we are to challenge the capitalist structures that now threaten all life on the planet, Chomsky and Waterstone forcefully argue that we must look closely at the everyday tools we use to interpret the world. Consequences of Capitalism make the deep, often unseen connections between common sense and power. In making these linkages we see how the current hegemony keep social justice movements divided and marginalized. More importantly, we see how we overcome these divisions.

“Covid-19 has revealed glaring failures and monstrous brutalities in the current capitalist system. It represents both a crisis and an opportunity. Contests for controlling the narratives around the meaning of this pandemic will be the terrain of struggle for either a new, more humane common sense and society or a return to the status quo ante. The outcome of those contests is uncertain; everything depends on the actions that people take into their own hands.” (From the Afterword)

Noam Chomsky was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on December 7, 1928. He studied linguistics, mathematics, and philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1955, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. Chomsky is Institute Professor (emeritus) in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Laureate Professor of Linguistics and Agnese Nelms Haury Chair in the Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona. His work is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, which have been translated into scores of countries worldwide. Among his most recent books are Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Who Rules the World-yet, Requiem for the American Dream, and What Kind of Creatures Are We?

Marv Waterstone is Professor Emeritus in the School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona, where he has been a faculty member for over 30 years. He is also the former director of the University of Arizona Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Comparative Cultural and Literary Studies. His research and teaching focus on the Gramscian notions of hegemony and common sense, and their connections to social justice and progressive social change. His most recent books are Wageless Life: A Manifesto for a Future beyond Capitalism (University of Minnesota Press; co-authored with Ian Shaw) and Geographic Thought: A Praxis Perspective (Routledge; co-edited with George Henderson).

Master Suffering Poems by CM Burroughs

Master Suffering pendulates between yield and command; the bodies of this book are supplicant yet seething—they want nothing more than to survive.

But how does a woman survive?

One’s own healthy body helps, but illness is one of the masters of this book.

Faith can be a salve for the inscrutable ailments of the body, but God is unreliable in these poems.

The female bodies of Master Suffering want power; they want to control and to correct the suffering they witness and withstand.

CM Burroughs is Associate Professor of Poetry at Columbia College Chicago. She is the author of two collections: The Vital System (Tupelo Press, 2012) and Master Suffering (Tupelo Press, 2020.) Burroughs has been awarded fellowships and grants from Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, Djerassi Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Cave Canem Foundation. She has received commissions from the Studio Museum of Harlem and the Warhol Museum to create poetry in response to art installations. Burroughs’ poetry has appeared in many journals and anthologies.

Karl Leberecht Immermann: Münchhausen. Eine geschichte in arabesken

Die »Münchhausiade« von Karl Leberecht Immermann steht in einer langen Tradition: Sie ist die groteske Variante der Ur-Münchhausen-Legende aus dem 18. Jahrhundert, die von den Kriegs-, Jagd- und Reiseabenteuern des volkstümlichen Freiherrn von Münchhausen auf Bodenwerder fabuliert.

Immermann verwandelt die phantastischen Legenden des berühmten »Lügenbarons« zu einer in der deutschen Literatur bis dahin unbekannten Form des Romans: zeithistorisch, gesellschaftskritisch, komisch und scharf-satirisch, eine anspielungsreiche, schillernde Verbindung aus Zeit- und Kulturkritik. Immermanns Münchhausen erneuert den Roman seiner Zeit und ist eines der bedeutendsten epischen Werke der deutschen Literatur.

Karl Leberecht Immermann, heute fast vergessen, nimmt Abschied vom Bildungs- und Erziehungsroman der klassischen und romantischen Literatur. 1838/39 erschienen und nicht nur von Heinrich Heine bewundert, ist sein origineller Münchhausen eine virtuos verschlungene »Geschichte in Arabesken«.

Bei Immermann ist Münchhausen ein »Erzwindbeutel«, ein »Cäsar der Lügen« und ein »Don Juan der Erfindung « – einer, der in seinem Tun und Erzählen die Wahrheit beansprucht und den Leser, angesprochen und immer wieder ins Geschehen einbezogen, zur Wahrheitsfindung auffordert. Laurence Sternes komischer Roman Tristram Shandy ist dabei das große, vom Erzähler herbeizitierte Vorbild.

Münchhausen ist zugleich ein Doppelroman, der auch vom »Oberhof«, einem reichen westfälischen Gutshof, und vom Kosmos der damaligen ländlichen Lebenswelt erzählt; im Zentrum der »Hofschulze« und ein »Jäger Oswald« – die Gegenwelt zur verfallenden Welt des Adels, in der der Münchhausen-Enkel und sein Diener Karl Buttervogel vor dem Herrn von »Schloss Schnick-Schnack-Schnurr«, vor Tochter und Dorfschulmeister schwadronieren. Eingebunden wird das ausschweifende Geschehen in eine Ehe- und Liebesgeschichte, erzählt werden die ineinander verschlungenen Welten in einem Zeitraum von wenigen Wochen.

Und was bedeutet es, wenn Immermann von einer »Geschichte in Arabesken« spricht? »… wer dabei den Verstand behalten will, der muss einen weniger geordneten Kopf haben, als ich leider besitze. Herr von Münchhausen beginnen zu erzählen; dann fangen wieder andere Personen an, in diesen Erzählungen zu erzählen; wenn man nicht schleunigst Einhalt tut, so geraten wir wahrhaftig in eine Untiefe des Erzählens hinein, worin unser Verstand notwendig Schiffbruch leiden muss. Bei den Frauen, die mit Schachteln handeln, stecken oft vierundzwanzig ineinander …«

Karl Leberecht Immermann (1796–1840) studierte Rechtswissenschaft, pflegte literarische Interessen, nahm an den napoleonischen Kriegen teil und wurde 1818 Gerichtsreferendar in Magdeburg. In dieser Zeit schreibt er seine ersten Dramen, es folgen ein Roman, Gedichte und Trauerspiele. Als Landgerichtsrat geht er nach Düsseldorf und übernimmt die Leitung des Düsseldorfer Theaters. 1836 erscheinen Die Epigonen. Familienmemoiren in neun Büchern und 1838/39 Münchhausen. Eine Geschichte in Arabesken.

Katrina Kalda: La mélancolie du monde sauvage

« J’ai appris à connaître toutes les pierres de la rivière. J’ai compris que ces pierres n’ont pas besoin d’apprendre à me connaître ; que la nature n’a pas besoin de moi. Que moi seule ai besoin d’elle. »

Rien ne destinait Sabrina à une carrière artistique. Élevée par une mère fragile dans un milieu modeste, elle a peu de perspectives d’avenir.

Jusqu’au jour où, lors de la visite scolaire du musée Rodin, elle découvre sa vocation : elle consacrera sa vie à l’art. Dès lors, Sabrina se voue totalement à ce projet. La précarité étudiante est vite compensée par les amitiés fortes et la richesse des recherches artistiques. Mais les soubresauts de sa vie amoureuse et les bouleversements d’un monde dont l’effondrement semble inéluctable ne tardent pas à infléchir sa trajectoire.

À travers le destin d’une artiste contemporaine, Katrina Kalda interroge la place de l’art dans un univers en crise. Son écriture, harmonieuse et assurée, soutient ce roman plein d’émotions.

Richard Ovenden: Burning the books. A history of knowledge under attack

The director of the famed Bodleian Libraries at Oxford narrates the global history of the willful destruction―and surprising survival―of recorded knowledge over the past three millennia.

Libraries and archives have been attacked since ancient times but have been especially threatened in the modern era. Today the knowledge they safeguard faces purposeful destruction and willful neglect; deprived of funding, libraries are fighting for their very existence. Burning the Books recounts the history that brought us to this point.

Richard Ovenden describes the deliberate destruction of knowledge held in libraries and archives from ancient Alexandria to contemporary Sarajevo, from smashed Assyrian tablets in Iraq to the destroyed immigration documents of the UK Windrush generation. He examines both the motivations for these acts―political, religious, and cultural―and the broader themes that shape this history. He also looks at attempts to prevent and mitigate attacks on knowledge, exploring the efforts of librarians and archivists to preserve information, often risking their own lives in the process.

More than simply repositories for knowledge, libraries and archives inspire and inform citizens. In preserving notions of statehood recorded in such historical documents as the Declaration of Independence, libraries support the state itself. By preserving records of citizenship and records of the rights of citizens as enshrined in legal documents such as the Magna Carta and the decisions of the US Supreme Court, they support the rule of law. In Burning the Books, Ovenden takes a polemical stance on the social and political importance of the conservation and protection of knowledge, challenging governments in particular, but also society as a whole, to improve public policy and funding for these essential institutions.

40ste editie van het Kunstenfestival Watou: ‘Watou 2021’

Elke zomer slaat het Kunstenfestival Watou haar tenten op in het gelijknamige kunstdorpje net voorbij Poperinge, tegen de Franse grens aan.

Dichters en beeldend kunstenaars, aanstormend talent en gevestigde waarden, uit binnen- en uit buitenland zorgen telkens weer voor een wonderlijke ervaring in karaktervolle tentoonstellingsplekken: een verlaten herenhuis, de kelder van een brouwerij, … Een unieke kunstbeleving ontstaat uit het samengaan van beeldende kunst en poëzie in verrassende, karaktervolle ruimtes

De 40ste editie van het Kunstenfestival Watou staat voor beweging, meerstemmigheid, menselijkheid en intensiteit. ‘Watou 2021’ nodigt het publiek uit om te kijken, te lezen, te voelen, te reflecteren en te verbinden. Met de kunst, de poëzie, de natuur en met elkaar. Bezoekers bewegen zich tussen de drie hoeken van het parcours: Watou, het kunstdorp zelf, de Gasthuiskapel in het centrum van Poperinge en de nieuwe locatie, het Kasteel De Lovie, daartussen.

Kunst en poëzie dringen volgens de curatoren altijd meervoudige perspectieven op: “Heel wat vormen en inhoudelijke visies bestaan gelijktijdig en zonder hiërarchie. Er is geen groot gelijk, er is geen waarheid, er is alleen meerstemmigheid en die meerstemmigheid is een rijkdom.”

‘Watou 2021’ presenteert werk van 40 kunstenaars uit binnen- en buitenland, van verschillende generaties en met diverse achtergronden. De focus ligt op creaties, verrassende samenwerkingen en werk dat nooit eerder in Vlaanderen te zien was. De selectie poëzie weerspiegelt eenzelfde meerstemmigheid. Er is werk te lezen én te horen van 40 dichters: van overleden dichters tot gevestigde namen en jonge dichters en debutanten. Een aantal gedichten wordt ingelezen door ondermeer Wannes Cappelle, Zwangere Guy, Charlotte Adigéry en Lander Gyselinck.

Het programma bevat onder andere optredens en performances van Esther Kläs & Gustavo Gomes, Stefan Hertmans, Catharina van Eetvelde en Claron McFadden, IKRAAAN, CHVE / Colin H van Eeckhout, Fulco, Les Âmes Perdues, Marieke Lucas Rijneveld én Wannes Cappelle en Nicolas Callot en Koen Vanmechelen, curator van het experimentele traject Patchwork.

Als de wereld onder onze ogen aan het veranderen is en we nog niet kunnen benoemen wat we zien. Als alles wat we al decennia denken en voor waar aannemen onder druk staat. Als we ons, beroofd van onze zekerheden, onveilig voelen. Als de wereld complex is geworden, dan is er één plek waar al die onzekerheden, al dat geweld, al die onrust, al die complexiteit, en ook al die schoonheid en al dat verlangen samenkomen: de kunst. Daar is het dat we intens leven, tijdens het maken van kunst, het ervaren van kunst, en het herinneren van kunst. ‘Watou 2021’ is een uitnodiging om poëzie en beeldende kunst te ervaren met hersenen, zintuigen en gevoelens. Om vervuld te worden van die complexiteit, van die meerlagigheid.

‘Watou 2021’ vertrekt vanuit de mens zelf. Wat is onze rol en positie in deze wereld? Wat is de impact van de recente transformaties op ons menszijn? Door de aanwas van technologie en artificiële intelligentie, maar ook door de crisis die we meemaken, leunen we niet alleen op onze rationele, maar ook op onze emotionele, spirituele, intuïtieve en biologische intelligentie.

Het vertrouwde werd vervangen door het confronterende en het oncomfortabele. Het daagt ons uit om onze blik open en dynamisch te houden. Met beweging als constante. Naar de ander en het andere.

Kunst en poëzie dringen altijd meervoudige perspectieven op: heel wat vormen en inhoudelijke visies bestaan gelijktijdig en zonder hiërarchie. Er is geen groot gelijk, er is geen waarheid, er is alleen meerstemmigheid en die meerstemmigheid is een rijkdom.
