Baudelaire in Chains: Portrait of the Artist as a Drug Addict (review) and faculties.

In sum this collection of essays is a valuable contribution to research and scholarship on Barbey's oeuvre.

Abstract

and faculties. The allusions to ennui, or empytness in Barbey's novels correspond to the negativity that Auraix-Jonchière maintains is sacred. Ultimately ennui is inextricably tied to its avatars and its opposites and becomes the space of transformation and transcendence. At first this piece might seem out-of-place in the thematic context of the collection; however, this section, as its title suggests, is a panoply of diverse sources of information on Aurevillian studies in general. A Carnet Critique contains reviews of seven recent publications on various aspects of Barbey and his work. A brief note detailing recent theses defended on Barbey concludes the volume. In sum this collection of essays is a valuable contribution to research and scholarship on Barbey's oeuvre. Although Les Diaboliques is the most frequently featured work in critical studies on Barbey, this study analyzes almost all of Barbeys novels (except for Le Chevalier des Touches) and reveals the sacred as an underlying preoccupation in Barbey's fictional universe. This collection will engage scholars of Barbey, readers of nineteenth and twentieth-century literary criticism, as well as those interested in studies of the sacred. Hilton, Frank.
