His thoughts begin to wander through time and space only when he mindlessly picks up his astrolabe—a medieval navigational de- vice, acquired secondhand in a Paris bric-a-brac shop and previously serv- rsi ing little purpose other than to anchor a stack of books and papers.

His retrospective view from above affords him the distance in both space and time to posit a critical reading of the urban memory text he walks. That the fille de brasserie can potentially inscribe these young men the sk into a plot of her authoring, however, also poses a threat to authorial mastery that is persistently suppressed or displaced by the novels that contain her. By adopting alternative modes of writing, I will argue, the serveuse erodes the bra by imminent narrative control exercised through the authorial gaze and troubles her own inscription, calling into question the roles of writer, protagonist, and reader.

He has not been appropriated by the city; he is able to regard it from a space of critical distance, which allows him to read, learn, and master its social codes. The mas- sive overhaul undergone by the city, along with the dizzying circulation characteristic of modernity, lead to the sense that Paris is no longer a ready- aP made map but rather a city-in-the-making. They must learn not only to read Ne ty the city passively; they must do so while mastering it by leaving their mark. His imagination and pride will fi ll in the blanks with the requisite romanesque details.

In the end, his goal is nei- s ther strictly visual nor sexual; it is a literary drive to extend his heroic mo- res ment and thus postpone the collapse of his meaningful fictional self. Alphonsine is forever running from landlords and bill collectors, moving from apartment to apartment as the increasingly visible signs of her disease leave her unable to generate sufficient income to feed her voracious appetites for food and fashion. For all her expertise in strategies of ruse and deferral in the aP brasserie, those strategies fall flat when she attempts to deploy them to delay the economic transactions that would forestall her eviction.

As her syphilis the sk advances, Alphonsine loses not only her homes sites of her sexual practice but also her home away from home, the brasserie site of her textual practice. I would like to suggest now that Alphonsine resists and subverts this circum- aP scription by slipping into other modes of writing: with her body, her mobil- ity, and finally, her voice. The text, unsurprisingly, fights back. The verseuse, then, is aP not only a woman who pours bocks, but a woman who writes with the tricks she turns and diverts the narrative The question is moot.

The novel accords her an illusion of choice only long enough to drive the plot forward, ive and then wrests it away.


Similarly, when she resorts to street prostitution, it becomes clear that she is playing a role in a story that is not her own. The morning after her confrontation with Adrienne, Alphonsine goes to a public toilet in the Tour-Saint-Jacques and begins to read. She is not now flipping through another roman-feuilleton, however. That she notes the lack of textual support is itself notable, as her pro- jection of her own medical future is similarly incomplete: the sk Alphonsine se figurait anxieusement [.

She resists treat- ment of her glaringly serious syphilis because she does not want to submit to the medical gaze of the carabins—an apprehension complicit with a textual Nineteenth-Century French Studies 41, Nos. The only blood that flows from Alphon- sine is notably black, the color of death and of ink.

The process of her dying is a process of writing the very novel we are reading, whose lines are traced bra by out in the black ink of her syphilis. It does not invert the gendered paradigm by giving her a voice, but rather multiplies it and disperses it into Ne ty manifold sites of bodily signification. Alphonsine knows all too well these syphilitic strategies of deferral and play, for they are the same tricks that fu- eled her trade in the brasserie.

She has been doubly duped, by her disease and by her narrative, into believing she has a future. As she endures the agonizing pain of the late stages of syphilis and the reader endures grue- some descriptions of her body that even her family finds intolerable , she decides to take her own life with a vial of atropine rather than continue to s suffer. As the poison ravages her body, Alphonsine stages her last act. The erstwhile verseuse refuses to let the narrative close the book on her, so to speak; the words she emits carry Ne ty on where her body cannot. Pamphlets, monographs, and novels from the time reveal a broad spectrum of more-or-less unflattering terms used to designate the female brasserie server: serveuse, verseuse, fille de brasserie, grenouille, etc.

Brasserie prostitu- tion usually took place offsite; the deferred promise of sex was used as a catalyst for consumption, driving clients to purchase food and alcohol.

He affirms that free exer- bra cise of the imagination is a democratic right for all. The thesis of our being, our presence, generates the antithesis of our possible absence.

The text incorporates such absence into a synthesis that makes us simultaneously absent from the landscape of action and present as remembrance in the landscape of thought. The froth churned up by the waves suggests the trace of their passage. Such self-canceling self-contemplation reflects hypercreativity in depth, as insight, unlike the digressions that reflect hypercreativity in breadth, as abundance. It would be mistaken, however, to consider res it his only last word. The allotelic side of his self-concept, the ethical inflec- Ne ty tion of his emerging class-consciousness, will develop to counterbalance the autotelic or aesthetic side, while preserving a mythic bond with the latter.

Lewis — provides a careful, erudite overview. Compagnon, mas- ive ter of the demeaning adjective, led the attack. A fellow-traveler with the anarchists, he none- theless opposed violence in politics. He admired Zola, but felt uncomfortable around Jews 40— In other words, s their sense of selfhood seemed intrusive to him. In the first, before , he was traumatized by his exile from Paris to the provinces, frustrated by teach- Ne ty ing jobs in provincial towns. He then depicts himself as the poet of a steril- ity that he has absorbed from his environment.

Five of his seven prose poems published in reflect the private experience of isolation. Conversing with a child contortionist at the circus, the orphan envies him for having parents, not realizing how the entire circus family suffers from exploitation and dire abuse. At the same time, they contrast it to the officially celebratory mood, and dramatize the Symbolist and Modernist motif of the self-conscious poet as another type of social out- cast, displaying his wares to an indifferent public.

The proletariat, to be sure, is suspicious of aesthetic productions, which seem to fulfi ll no useful function but which, neverthe- ive less, are valued far above the results of manual labor. The bourgeoisie, in contrast, acts in bad faith, pre- Un suming to understand and judge something that it cannot produce or repro- duce. Th is event coincided with the inauguration of the Third French Republic in , after the Commune fell.

Once he was installed in the capital, his enhanced status and higher salary literally made him more bourgeois. Once there, he was exhilarated by the presence of creative kindred spirits in an artistic milieu. In , he planned with Catulle Mendes to found an international association of poets.

But the international association did not eventu- bra ate. Poets still dreamed of achieving an impossible harmony with the People. In the summer of , he achieved a modest version of the ultimate proof aP of success in the metropolis—a regular rental of a country retreat outside of it, at Valvins, on the Seine near Fontainebleau. There his poetic creativity the sk could nurture itself in tranquility. Nor does he discuss artistic creations and performances and eval- uate them. He advises socialites s on what they should purchase and how they should live to achieve elegance. As the sensuous faun, loosed in the city, he embraces and celebrates the material luxury that surrounds him in the elegant Paris boutiques and on the beautiful ladies rsi who display themselves in their carriages.

The circus troupe and the audience feared that the animal would bite him, and someone quickly distracted it by throwing a piece of raw meat out from the wings. Thus the bear itself briefly becomes superior to the incurious human spectators, who are content with the super- ficial thrill of an apparent opposition between nature and culture, one that rsi confirms their specious superiority to the animal.

This anecdote, related by the detached, superior poet, reflects how his self-confidence grew concur- ive rently with his reputation. The four prose poems that followed from — continue to express a superior attitude. He claims in his defense that the aP approbations of the multiple hearers confirm and corroborate the praise, so that she herself can experience it more keenly.

The last, however, relates a Ne ty public event, one that both reaffirms and betrays Art. These reflect the flickering coexistence of aesthetics and a social consciousness that sometimes excludes the fans, reserved for le monde and sometimes includes the workingman the post- rsi man.

The quatrains on fans engage the poem in social interchange. They form part of a self-sufficient, elitist social discourse: the quatrains may represent prosopopoeias by the fans, apostrophes by the poet to the fans, or addresses by the poet to the recipient of his dedication, be he present or absent when the quatrains are read.

Yet they also involve the postman, a worker who can partake of the hermeneutic plea- sures of the transaction, which lighten the monotony of his daily task. He shares with the work- ers the combined biological imperatives of mating, procreation, and finding food, and their cultural sanctions of marriage and gainful employment.


Both the poet and the worker are pro- ductive in their separate ways, whereas the archetypical bourgeois, an entre- preneur living off the surplus labor value of others, hoards and invests with- out himself producing anything. His newfound leisure freed him to become more keenly aware of the working class and its affinities with his own destiny as a servant to the bourgeoisie. It simultaneously refers to the class-consciousness that divides workers from authors, and to con- the sk science, that provokes guilt in the latter.

What is our responsibility toward the disadvantaged? A drama of awakening social consciousness, it crystal- lizes his emerging social stance. They have separate domains; the poet is trespassing, but silently, and only through his curious gaze. Their opposition ends unre- solved, with an irreducible mutual alienation. This time, they too are idle, taking a meal after res work. Their noisy conversations and drunken shouting disturb him. The poet provokes the hostility of one of them by a gesture of deliberate exclusion: he locks the garden gate at the back of the house, preventing the workers from aP taking a shortcut to their canteen on the ground floor.

On Sundays, they need to get drunk and shout to unwind. These com- rsi placent bourgeois, he realizes, with their ignorant pretensions to culture, are the true Philistines, the mutual enemy of both the poet and the workers. As ive the latter collapse drunkenly on the lawn to sleep, the poet experiences an inward reconciliation with them. The sunset bathes the sky in blood, like an altar of sacrifice; on the earthly plane, the workers are the victims, and Un the observer the officiant who transforms their sufferings into poetry. This careerist essor provokes the antithesis of proletarian res antagonism, specifically, the hostility of manual workers toward a poet who seems just another bourgeois because he does not work with his hands.

Neither teachers nor manual workers own the means of production; the worker, albeit unawares the sk and involuntarily, is physically closer to nature than is the bourgeois, as the poet is closer to nature intellectually and symbolically. The workers, scattered sleeping on the turf in a constellation of bodies, reconfirm the transcendent event by mimicking it Ne ty on a microcosmic scale.

The bourgeois readers form the audience to be en- lightened. A constellation is a specious ordering of objects unimaginably remote from each other, a pattern that exists only in the perceptions of an observer situated at one arbitrary point. Cohn, — The High Modernists such as Rilke further reject the false hope of a pre- sumptive higher knowledge, which we nurture as we aspire to transcend the limitations of our material existence.

We can know only those limitations. Marchal II Henceforth OC. Pies offers a rich, revealing analysis of this text and of several major related issues. Pursuing an aesthetic ra- ive ther than an ethical argument, she speculates that this addition destabilizes the col- lection.

Striding quickly across the most historic of Paris bridges, he threaded the narrow, tortuous thoroughfares dear to every lover of rsi old Paris, till he reached the Place St Sulpice.

But it is precisely because the topic is so vast that individual case histories such as the one I shall present here are useful in that they allow us to go beyond vague generalizations about the growth of literacy.

Louvain, as I am reminded by my Britannica, had an illus- trious past, making up in intellectual prestige what over the years it had lost the sk in the textile trade. Founded in , noteworthy in particular for its theo- logical studies, the University library had over manuscripts and 70, books, many of them old and very rare. In short, on the eve of WW1, it had bra by everything going for it, except. On the most direct route from Germany to Paris, it was inevitably in the line of fire: in , after a pro- longed siege, everything went up in flames.

Ne ty In , with the courage and resilience that the people of the Low Coun- tries, far too often, have been called upon to demonstrate, the University au- thorities set about repairing their loss. While combing Germany for material com- mensurate with their distinguished past, the librarians were also on the look- out for basic stock. German reparation funds, to the tune of , francs, changed hands: a tidy sum in , but for approximately , volumes, something of a Un bargain.

In , alas, a new generation of Germans went on the rampage; and while there was no battle of Louvain to compare with the appalling one in , enough shells were in the air to set fire to the library, and once again virtually everything burned. Given the longevity of this particular cabinet and its pre-eminence on rsi the Parisian cultural landscape, perhaps it is time to set the record straight.

The F18 series in the Archives nationales has over dossiers of requests to ive operate a cabinet de lecture, including both those of Mme Cardinal and her grand-daughter and successor, Mme Duval. Given the French penchant for bureaucracy, the dossiers are full of information, much of it predictable, so I Un shall limit myself here to the essential facts. Both were minors she was 17, he was 22 and to marry they required and got letters of permission from their mothers: their respective fathers may well have been on military Nineteenth-Century French Studies 41, Nos.

Her request to open a subscription library at her residence, 18 rue des Canettes in the faubourg St Germain is dated 18 December , and was ac- companied by the following documents: A letter from her husband, authorizing her to operate a business in her own i. Ne ty The above documents were enclosed with a recommendation that the license be granted, which it was, on February Unfortunately the rel- evant years are missing from the archive.

The archives have an in-house newsletter, with the usual information about ship- ping arrivals and departures, capital projects in the major ports, import and aP export figures and so on. The summer of seems to have been especially controversial. Baron Portal was old enough to remember when France was the sk a major political power; the French navy, after all—he came from a wealthy shipping family—had been directly involved in the American War of In- dependence.

Like most ministers, then and now, he was deeply concerned bra by about his budget. Towards the end of his tenure, he made some progress on the question of capital expenditure; but in September of , he faced a bud- get cut of 20, francs in his office administration costs. Less than three Ne ty months later—coincidentally? More impor- tant than the statistics, which at best can only be approximations, since not all of the cabinet owners sent their catalogues to the Royal or Imperial librar- ies, is that not a single official in the more than a thousand demandes de bre- vet that I have scanned could be accused of gender prejudice; not one—and Nineteenth-Century French Studies 41, Nos.

Mme Duval duly picked up her by license on December 27, The confidence in her abilities both personal and official was not misplaced. The rebuilding of Paris, which had ive begun on the right bank, reached across the river; between and , the rue de Rennes, a broad boulevard—like street extending down from the Montparnasse railway station towards the Seine—it never quite made it all Un the way—was opened up; from , we find Mme Duval at 51 rue de Rennes, now a highly desirable address in a prosperous neighborhood.

If the own- ers, needing more space, more than once felt the need to move, it was within the same quartier: for over a century, all four addresses 18 rue des Canettes, 51 rue de Rennes, 55 rue de Rennes, 1 Place St Sulpice were all within easy walking distance of each other, so regular local customers would not have been inconvenienced. However, in , in the interests of free enterprise and freedom of speech, aP the government passed a law abolishing the brevet requirement for book- sellers, so the F18 archive—such a matchless source of information for book the historians—simply dries up.

They were, on the other hand, supposed to write a by letter to the Chamber of Commerce, informing the authorities of the change of ownership. There is substantial body of correspondence received by that Ne ty body. For , the most likely date of the sale, there are several thick files of letters, with no index. What is certain is that his plans for expansion, especially in the sciences, were ambitious and his pockets deep: between the time of his purchase and the eventual sale to the University of Louvain, the holdings almost doubled.

There seem to have been two further changes of ownership and continued growth; a supplement for —96 in the fonds Q28 lists new acquisitions, in- Nineteenth-Century French Studies 41, Nos. The catalogue is an astonishing document, like something straight out of Borges; even to begin to analyze its contents would require a paper in itself.

In the first place, beyond a doubt, it is a success story, reflecting an optimism inherited from the Enlightenment, the bibliographical equivalent of the series of Expo- sitions universelles that punctuated the second half of the nineteenth century. It should also encourage us to lay to rest certain myths that dogged the rental libraries ever since their inven- aP tion in the latter third of the 18th century.

Leafing through the thousands of titles in every field known to late 19th-century scholarship, from Latin and the sk Greek texts in the original or in facing-page translations to the latest research into mental illness and the workings of the brain by people like Charcot and his student Alfred Binet, we are worlds apart from the cheap thrills expe- bra by rienced by Emma Rouault in her convent school8 or later, as the archetypal bored housewife, who gets glimpses of a more glamorous life style by taking out a subscription to a cabinet in Rouen, a decision in which her mother-in- Ne ty law—as things turned out, quite rightly—saw the inherent dangers.

The reasons for the supposed decline were twofold: the introduction of the ro- rsi man feuilleton in , so that the latest novel by Sue or Dumas could be read in your daily newspaper; and the spectacular fall in book prices. Some libraires had tariff differen- tials for newspapers—cheaper in the evening, confined to the library for sev- eral days, and so on. Moreover, old habits, arguably more ingrained in the provinces than in Paris, die hard.

Well into the 20th century, certain- ly within the lifetime of the present writer, there was a clear distinction be- tween books that one bought and books one borrowed. A maiden aunt in Paris in the s might well buy the Fables of La Fontaine for her nieces and nephews as Martyn Lyons, in several publications,12 has convincingly shown s that they did ; but she would continue to rent the novels of the prolific Au- res guste Lafontaine, perhaps the most commonly met author after Walter Scott and Fennimore Cooper in the July Monarchy catalogues.

Parent-Lardeur makes excellent use of statistics, and I am sure that when aP she claims that there were more cabinets in Paris in than in , she is right. But in the spirit of completing her research rather than contesting its the sk validity: without her labours, the field would probably still be virgin territo- ry , let me add one of my own. In recent years, I have undertaken an in-depth analysis of the contents of provincial cabinets roughly a third of the sur- bra by viving catalogues. Set up by a certain G.

Although it sounds like pure urban fantasy, non adepts will love this novel too. FranSoiZ No need for complicated plans, just follow the green! The autoroutes highways or main National N roads are the ones with the least twists and turns, but with heavy goods vehicles pounding along whipping up the air,they are not pleasant to ride. From Nice going into the rest of Provence, one of the most dramatic landmarks is Mont Ventoux.

Riding up it is a favourite with bikers and cyclists; indeed it is often included in the Tour de France. On into Languedoc, you arrive at the Camargue, a regional park and area of outstanding beauty known for its salt marshes and wide variety of wildlife. On its eastern limit is the walled town of Aigues-Mortes, a smaller version of Carcassonne. It has a definite charm, but only out of season. The coast road towards Montpellier offers views of the lagoon on one side and sea on the other, with the city of Montpellier in the distance and, on a clear day, views of the local high point, the Pic St Loup.

There is a wine appellation called Pic St Loup which specialises in sharp, fruity white wine. One of the best roads north of Montpellier twists and turns up to Mont Aigoual. The coastal plain from Beziers to Perpignan has fewer green roads than further north in the mountains. One of the prettiest,however,goes through Bages which is a delightful little fishing village set on a lagoon. One of our favourite areas to explore on the bike is Cathar Country, with fantastic views of tragic, ruined castles perched on unlikely hilltops, lovely little hotels, and excellent food.

From there you can continue on towards Andorra, riding the fantastic mountain roads of the Pyrenees. The pretty little town of Ceret is a favourite with expat residents. Perpignan is well situated for forays into Spain and is close to Collioure. A jewel of a town, its fort stands proud over the sea and its narrow streets are ideal for idling away a few hours. For the keen biker, the coastal and inland roads towards the frontier are a joy to ride. They twist and turn, offer superb views, and an exciting challenge.

The South of France offers many opportunities for the retired biker. From busy bustling cities, to smaller towns and villages, they are all well placed for exciting adventures on a motorbike. Henri Martin was a surprise for me because although I have heard of his work before this exhibition I would probably not have recognised any one painting. Thick painterly encrustations of pink, green and violet sit beautifully next to vibrant reds and dark blues; the suggestion of the entrepots seen through the masts of moored shipping is particularly well rendered too.

Just look at the range of limited colours that he uses to convey the low winter sun striking the buildings opposite, the lights that pick up the rooftops and traffic, their tones perfectly matched within the tonal scheme of the picture and his subtle suggestion of the river bridges seen through the trees, so solid and yet conveyed with such a light touch. The female nude is prominent in the exhibition, perhaps because for the Turks it is a long tradition? Here, using large, well charged brushes the painter has let rip with a freedom and pleasure in pure colour that is rare to see; the drapes and cushions are painted with just enough tone and modelling so as not to detract from the painting of the sleeping girl, done in generous sweeps of the brush.

So, this year, after the madness of the presents, we all got ready to go and horror of horrors, my ski trousers had ceased to fit, I could just about get them past my knees.
