Aestheticism and Morality in Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890) par Louise Bailly, publié le 17/09/2020
Known for his witty aphorisms, fanciful style and extravagant way of life, Oscar Wilde was not only a dandy par excellence but also a major figure of nineteenth-century literature. In The Picture of Dorian Gray, he expresses his belief that art should be dissociated from moral considerations and creates an anti-hero at odds with traditional protagonists whose virtuous behaviours were meant to be exemplary models.

Le néolibéralisme et l’opinion britannique : Un héritage en demi-teinte ? par Gilles Christoph, publié le 26/04/2010
Afin de contribuer à l'entreprise d'évaluation de l'héritage thatchérien qui était l'objet du colloque organisé à Lyon en décembre 2009, cet article se propose d'étudier l'influence des idées néolibérales sur l'opinion britannique. Il apparaît que le passage du consensus keynésien au consensus néolibéral, symbolisé par l'élection de Margaret Thatcher en 1979, doit beaucoup à l'action d'un petit groupe d'économistes qui, au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, se sont donné pour ambition de transformer les mentalités dans un sens plus conforme aux principes du libéralisme économique. Si le succès de la stratégie néolibérale est indéniable auprès des élites, on remarque cependant que la conversion du grand public reste partielle, notamment en ce qui concerne la privatisation des services publics.

New Labour and the neo-liberal ascendancy: the case of public service reform par Eric Shaw, publié le 01/03/2010
A much debated topic has been the fundamental thrust of the New Labour project. Was it about the modernisation of social democracy or its abandonment? Did it adapt itself to the settlement bequeathed by Thatcherism and the neo-liberal paradigm it entrenched or seek it transcend it? This article discusses these contending interpretations focusing on the issue of public service reform, which lay at the heart of New Labour's domestic programme. It then explores the effects of New Labour's market-oriented 'modernisation' strategy on what social democrats have traditionally regarded as the normative underpinning of the public services, the 'public service ethos'.

Financialisation and the Thatcher Governments par John Grahl, publié le 12/02/2010
This paper suggests that the role of the Thatcher governments in changing the course of economic and political development may have been exaggerated, and indeed that the role of political factors in general and "neo-liberalism" in particular is often overstated. An implication is that some current problems, interpreted as primarily political, have an economic dimension which is not fully taken into account. An example is the process of "financialisation"; this is frequently analysed in political terms although there are deep economic forces behind it.

"People tried to figure if they were offended and why" : L'intertextualité dans le roman américain contemporain ou la lecture en procès par Françoise Sammarcelli, publié le 09/10/2009
L’objet de ce travail est de problématiser la notion d’intertexte en prenant appui sur le court roman de Louise Welsh : Tamburlaine Must Die. Dans le sillage des études du généticien Louis Hay qui proposait dès 1985 que le texte n’existe pas, l’introduction propose d’argumenter que l’intertexte n’existe pas, il n’existe que des modalités d’intertextualité dont le point commun est le fantasme originaire : l’illusion que l’on pourrait identifier un point d’origine fixe et stable à l’écriture. En lieu et place de l’intertexte est alors postulée l’existence de ce qu’on pourrait appeler la voix textuelle, distincte de la voix auctoriale de l’autorité de l’auteur, qui serait en partie fondée sur la co-présence de multiples modalités d’intertextualité mais qui dépasse largement ce cadre si on la relie à la problématique analytique de l’objet-voix lacanien.

The Victorian Sensation Novel par Sophie Lemercier-Goddard, David Amigoni, publié le 02/05/2008
The sensation novel developed in Britain in the 1860s with Wilkie Collins as its most famous representative and has been increasingly presented as a sub-genre revealing the cultural anxiety of the Victorian period. Its complex narrative which relies on a tangle of mysteries and secrets introduces the character of the detective while heavily resorting to the Gothic machinery with the figure of the persecuted maiden and that of the villain.

Across the ‘Wide Sargasso Sea’: Jean Rhys’s Revision of Charlotte Brontë’s Eurocentric Gothic par Sylvie Maurel, publié le 20/03/2008
In this article, Sylvie Maurel analyses the Gothic destabilizing machinery at work in Jean Rhys’s "Wide Sargasso Sea". The first Gothic element the author looks at is the demonic agency that haunts the novel. Colonial history lingers in Rhys’s world and accounts for some of the strange and unexpected phenomena that occur on the island. Actually, the narrative is under the double influence of a past set in an actual history of slavery and a future already written in the story of "Jane Eyre". Rhys’s characters have an uncanny prescience of what lies ahead and a sense that they cannot evade repetition. The motif of witchcraft is another element that links "WSS" to the Gothic. The motif goes beyond a picturesque reference to the West Indian context and functions as a metaphor of the relationship between language and power. Christophine’s witchcraft and Rochester’s Eurocentric discourse are two similar attempts at transforming the world through language. The power of language is also reflected in the way the novel constantly brings together multiple voices and conflicting views which seem to hide a secret rather than reveal a final truth. Rochester can only feel the presence of such a secret and risks delirium as he tries to get a grip on something that constantly eludes him.
