  • Anglais Oxygen in all its forms

    Jean Coudert

    And what if Oxygen could tell us the story of his life? A just reward for the one without whom life would be impossible. Representing 21% of the volume of the earthly atmosphere and 87% of the ocean mass, he is a simply indispensable actor in our world. Without him, it would be the end of the story for Earth and its Humanity. What roles does he play? What are his relationships to other molecules?

  • This volume, accessible to all of Alistair MacLeod's readers and fans, offers the transcript of an in-depth interview with Alistair MacLeod which took place in Windsor during the Spring of 2009. It is introduced by Douglas Gibson, Alistair MacLeod's long-time editor and trusted friend. Alistair MacLeod has been described as a "quiet literary giant" and there is no better way of encapsulating his talent and character in only three words. He is the recipient of many literary awards, including the IMPAC award and thirteen honorary degrees. In the interview, Alistair MacLeod throws light on the creative process and gives us insight into his craft. As his comments come in response to questions on each individual story as well as on the novel No Great Mischief, the transcript is divided into sections dedicated to each one of the stories and the novel. Quotes from previous interviews have been added and organized thematically in a section entitled "Collected Comments from Previous Interviews". The last part of this volume includes the summaries of these works. The aim of these summaries is to refresh the reader's memory and guide him through the conversation with Alistair MacLeod and also to provide useful references for all students, academics and enthusiastic readers wishing to embark on a critical analysis of Alistair MacLeod's work.

  • The chapter divisions reflect both the step-by-step process of covering one story at a time as well as the themes and literary references that Mavis Gallant chose to dwell on. Special attention is given to the so-called interconnected stories, including the Henri Grippes and the Linnet series. Mavis Gallant's comments on the genesis of each story inevitably led to broader considerations on the subject of the creative process, raw material, fiction, and reality. Because these comments come in response to questions on her work, they allow a glimpse of the construction of the stories while giving us insight into the writer's craft. The second part of this volume includes the summaries of Gallant's two novels and of the short stories in the Selected Stories. The purpose of these summaries is to guide the reader through the conversations with Mavis Gallant and also to provide useful references to all students and academics wishing to embark on a critical analysis of Mavis Gallant's work.

  • Muriel Spark seems to have seen the world as a stage where all the men and women are merely players having their "moments" on the stage of life. "One's prime is the moment one was born for" she has been known to say, and it is those moments, mere spots in time, that she describes in her fiction. Old people become babes again. School-boys (or girls) grow into their prime. That is the cycle of life that can be traced throughout her work, a pattern of birth, growth, and decay that is akin to the seasons.
