The Flâneur Abroad

  • Categories: Art

This volume offers new perspectives on a crucial figure of nineteenth-century cultural history – the flâneur. Recent writing on the flâneur has given little sustained attention to the widespread adaptation of the flâneur outside Paris, let alone outside France and indeed Europe, whether in the form of historic antecedents, modern sequels, or contemporary echoes. Yet it is clear that the allure of the flâneur’s persona has led to its translation and adoption far beyond Parisian boulevards and passages, and this in different media and literary genres.

'These poems display subtle craft and pay homage to the gift of life. They're tough and honest at times (try "Free-Thinker") and wryly self-alert to contradictions in the way we accept cruelty ("Mites").

Tenderness and pragmatism a...

Art, Theatre, and Opera in Paris, 1750-1850

  • Categories: Art

This book maps the interrelation between art, theatre, and opera in a time of dramatic historical change and political contestation in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Paris. Contributions to the volume trace the creative connections and clashes fostered by the sharing of new types of subject matter throughout the period. Scholars from art history, theatre studies and musicology take as their subjects a variety of protagonists from theatre, opera, literature and history in order to make visible the intimately interwoven and entangled world of Parisian arts.
