Angles is an international online peer-reviewed journal published bi-annually by the SAES (Société des Anglicistes de l’Enseignement Supérieur).

  2. to make cutting-edge research freely available through an open access policy;
  3. to make full use of the possibilities offered by digital publication and different modes of expression: text, image, video, podcasts, hyperlinks…

L’Epoque Conradienne vol. 43
Energy in Conrad and Hardy

Nathalie Martinière & Peggy Blin-Cordon eds. (+ introduction), 
Limoges: Pulim, 2022, 116 pp.
ISBN10 : 2-84287-854-2
ISBN13 : 9782842878542

The age of Thomas Hardy and Joseph Conrad saw the discovery of many new forms of energy: steam, gas and electricity contributed to reshaping the environment as well as the social and economic organization of the world. How did these new energies compete or interfere with older ones, like those of the human body and of nature in general? And how did the two writers accommodate, or render in prose or verse the power of these new energies, the fascination/repulsion for their chemical/physical impulses? Aside from pure epistemology, can the notion of energy help us read the two authors differently?

This volume contains papers given in the panel “Energy in Conrad and Hardy” during the 15th ESSE International Conference held online (Lyon, France) on 01-02 September, 2021.

Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies

Essence & Critique: Journal of Literature and Drama Studies is an open access peer-reviewed academic journal that serves as a forum for multi- and interdisciplinary discussions across Literature and Drama Studies, providing academicians, scholars, professionals, and students with the opportunity to disseminate their research to a diverse audience of peers and professionals.

Scott Fitzgerald proposes that “[t]hat is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” Literature is unique but it is limitless in its extent, for “literature is life,” as Robert A. Nimmo puts it. ‘We belong’, as literature is human. Human narrates the story and is told in the story. Human makes hi(s)tory and is told in hi(s)tory. Literature is human/ities and it “is the question minus the answer” for “the birth of the reader,” as Roland Barthes suggests. We come to set sail for new articles, new writers, and new readers. We come to take responsibility for the space we belong to.
