5.0 out of 5 stars At last!!, 11 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was relieved, because at last I received this excellent book. It is important for those interested in "marginal literatures" ou "popular" literatures. The information given is not that important, but it was one of the first histories of literature to pay attention to those texts "forgotten" or ignored by the university. It has got information about what they call "littératures conexes", meaning texts written in French but outside the borders of France( in Canada, for instance) and texts written within the borders of France but using dialect and "argot", slang, more or less. I hope I've given some information for those interested in these themes. Good readings. Vive la littérature. Viva a literatura, o verdadeiro estudo do homem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Mr. Lovelace!, 19 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clarissa [DVD] (DVD)
Superb work produced by the BBC. It gives us a hint of how women were treated in those times. But I want to speak mainly of the film, or series, itself. Fine music, clothing, actresses and actors. And Sean Bean is amazing, as usual, and utterly beautiful.


Introduction à la paralittérature
Introduction à la paralittérature
by Daniel Couégnas
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Popular Literature, 19 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are studying paraliterature or popular literature or literature for the "masses", you have to read this book. It is mainly about the "essential features" of all popular genres: detective stories, romance novels, science fiction, etc. That kind of fiction which is rejected by the literary canon, but is highly consumed by the "masses". It tries to answer this question: what makes this kind of fiction so popular among its readers?

5.0 out of 5 stars Novel and romance, 19 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential for the history of the romance novel. Very pleasant to read. In Portugal we always say "romance" when we refer to narrative fiction. In England, as far as I know, the equivalent is "novel". Romance novel is the sentimental novel. But why novel? Because the word was applied to the new kind of narrative fiction, whose main reference, as far as I know, is Samuel Richardson. This writer and others began a different way of writing fiction. Different or new. So, novel because it brings "novelty" in terms of fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern fiction?, 19 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am always confused when I read the word "modern". What does it mean? Is it "modern" as in "modernism" as opposed to Postmodernism? Well, I am mainly interested in "Lad lit", and this lit is quite the opposite of "modernism". Modern here means today's literature, or today's fiction. But is it Literature?? Some say: NO, it is not!
