Genre: Business & Economics

This book offers a much-needed study of the Victorian novel's role in representing and shaping the service sector's emergence. Arguing that prior accounts of the novel's relation to the rise of finance have missed the emergence of a wider service sector, it traces the effects of service work's many forms and class positions in the Victorian novel.

Genre: Literary Criticism

Faced with the chaos and banality of modern, everyday life, a number of Victorian poets sought innovative ways of writing about the unpoetic present in their verse. Their varied efforts are recognisably akin, not least in their development of mixed verse-forms that fused novel and epic to create something equal to the miscellaneousness of the age.

Release Date: 2006
Genre: Authors, English

Cet ouvrage présente la correspondance entre un écrivain anglais encore débutant, Eric Blair, et son traducteur français, René-Noël Raimbault qui, ayant découvert son premier roman, " Down and Out in Paris and London ", mettra tout en œuvre pour faire connaître au public français cet auteur dont il pressent l'importance : George Orwell. Grâce à René-Noël Raimbault et à la qualité du dialogue qui s'instaure entre les deux hommes de 1934 à 1935, le lecteur assiste à la naissance de l'auteur de 1984 et de " La Ferme des animaux ". Dès son premier livre, traduit par René-Noël Raimbault sous le titre de " La Vache Enragée ", George Orwell fait preuve d'une étonnante lucidité sur tout ce qui menace la société des hommes.
