Une aventure de Nestor Burma, détective de choc. " Bravo, songeai-je. Ça va chauffer. " Je ne croyais pas si bien dire. Dans le temps que je formulais mentalement cette banalité, le tac-tac-tac d'un chœur de pistolets automatiques faisait retentir les échos. Jetant ma valise en avant, je m'allongeai prestement sur le sol, à côté d'un adolescent à tête de voyou...

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title Flourishing in the United States during the 1940s and 50s, the bleak, violent genre of filmmaking known as film noir reflected the attitudes of writers and auteur directors influenced by the events of the turbulent mid-twentieth century. Films such as Force of Evil , Night and the City , Double Indemnity , Laura , The Big Heat , The Killers , Kiss Me Deadly and, more recently, Chinatown and The Grifters are indelibly American. Yet the sources of this genre were found in Germany and France and imported to Hollywood by emigré filmmakers, who developed them and allowed a vibrant genre to flourish. Andrew Dickos’s Street with No Name traces the film noir genre back to its roots in German Expressionist cinema and the French cinema of the interwar years. Dickos describes the development of the film noir in America from 1941 through the 1970s and examines how this development expresses a modern cinema. Dickos examines notable directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, John Huston, Nicholas Ray, Robert Aldrich, Samuel Fuller, Otto Preminger, Robert Siodmak, Abraham Polonsky, Jules Dassin, Anthony Mann and others. He also charts the genre’s influence on such celebrated postwar French filmmakers as Jean-Pierre Melville, François Truffaut, and Jean-Luc Godard. Addressing the aesthetic, cultural, political, and social concerns depicted in the genre, Street with No Name demonstrates how the film noir generates a highly expressive, raw, and violent mood as it exposes the ambiguities of modern postwar society.

Paris : un SDF est poignardé à mort sur une voie ferrée de la gare de Lyon. « Vous me réglez ça. Rapide et propre, qu’on n’y passe pas Noël », ordonne le commissaire au capitaine Mehrlicht et à son équipe : le lieutenant Dossantos, exalté du code pénal et du bon droit, le lieutenant Sophie Latour qui panique dans les flash mobs, et le lieutenant stagiaire Ménard, souffre-douleur du capitaine à tête de grenouille, amateur de sudoku et de répliques d’Audiard... Mais ce qui s’annonçait comme un simple règlement de comptes entre SDF se complique quand le cadavre révèle son identité. L’affaire va entraîner le groupe d’enquêteurs dans les méandres de la Jungle, nouvelle Cour des miracles au cœur du bois de Vincennes, dans le dédale de l’illustre Sorbonne, jusqu’aux arrière-cours des troquets parisiens, pour s’achever en une course contre la montre dans les rues de la capitale. Il leur faut à tout prix empêcher que ne sonne l’heure des fous...

'If the poet, in the words of +douard Glissant, is a "visionnaire du concret", this volume of close readings explores poetry as utterance situated between dream and reality without ascribing a mission to the poet or attempting to unearth hidden subtexts. These marvellously read poems follow the major currents of twentieth-century French and Francophone literature and go a long way to fulfilling the editors' desires to forge a new alliance between readers and poets.'-J Michael Dash, New York University 'This anthology will be a godsend to teachers and students and, indeed, to all lovers of modern French poetry. The editors' choice of poets and poems ranges from the powerfully canonical to the challengingly contemporary, and each of the commentators brings to their analysis a combination of deep and affectionate knowledge and illuminating new insights.'-Michael Worton, Vice-Provost and Fielden Professor of French Language and Literature, University College London
