Extrait : "Qu'est-ce que l'adultère ? « C'est l'œuvre de chair sciemment et volontairement accomplie entre une personne mariée et une personne autre que son conjoint. » D'après Fournel, « l'adultère est une des trois espèces de délit dont les personnes de différent sexe peuvent se rendre coupables par fréquentation illégitime. » Les deux autres espèces sont la stupre et la fornication. L'adultère se commet avec une femme mariée, la stupre avec une femme libre."

A Sentimental Education
Author: Gustave Flaubert
Publisher: Jester House Publishing via PublishDrive
Sentimental Education has been described both as the first modern novel and as a novel to end all novels. Weaving a poignant love story into his account of the 1848 revolution, Flaubert shows a society in the grip of stereotypes, on every level. There is something farcical in his depiction of characters who aspire to act but are dogged by cliche at every turn. To a greater extent even than Madame Bovary, Sentimental Education is an indictment of modern consumerism, contrasting the hollowness of material achievement with the lasting beauty of the ideal. Flaubert's study of success and failure offers us a terrible sadness in a terrible beauty, yet is one of the world's great comic masterpieces.
Monsieur de Phocas
Author: Jean Lorrain
Publisher: Hippocrene Books
This book ranks with 'A Rebours' as the summation of the French Decadent Movement. Modelled on 'The Portrait of Dorian Gray, ' it drips with evil and certainly would have been unpublishable in fin de siecle England.
Early Christian poetry
Author: Jan Den Boeft, Antonius Hilhorst
This collection of papers focuses on the literary art of early Christian poetry in Syriac, Greek and Latin. It discusses both the techniques of this art and its theoretical foundation in the Christian use of classical literary traditions.
An exhaustive study of Claudian's unfinished mythological epic, with a text, apparatus criticus, and commentary. The long introduction begins with a catalogue of manuscripts; and this leads to an investigation into the manuscript tradition and the history of the poem's transmission. Dr Hall then surveys the most important printed editions of the poem. He examines various theories of dating and discusses the sources of the story. He concludes the introduction with a brief critical assessment of the form and style of the poem. Dr Hall establishes his text after an examination of all the extant manuscripts. The apparatus, though very full, is selective in that it records readings of younger manuscripts only when they offer something new. It also ignores trifling corruptions. The commentary is similarly selective. In general, it discusses everything relevant to the establishing of the text and ignores points of purely mythological and literary interest.
