Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction Finalist for the 2017 PEN Faulkner Award In this literary masterwork, Louise Erdrich, the bestselling author of the National Book Award-winning The Round House and the Pulitzer Prize nominee The Plague of Doves wields her breathtaking narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture. North Dakota, late summer, 1999. Landreaux Iron stalks a deer along the edge of the property bordering his own. He shoots with easy confidence—but when the buck springs away, Landreaux realizes he’s hit something else, a blur he saw as he squeezed the trigger. When he staggers closer, he realizes he has killed his neighbor’s five-year-old son, Dusty Ravich. The youngest child of his friend and neighbor, Peter Ravich, Dusty was best friends with Landreaux’s five-year-old son, LaRose. The two families have always been close, sharing food, clothing, and rides into town; their children played together despite going to different schools; and Landreaux’s wife, Emmaline, is half sister to Dusty’s mother, Nola. Horrified at what he’s done, the recovered alcoholic turns to an Ojibwe tribe tradition—the sweat lodge—for guidance, and finds a way forward. Following an ancient means of retribution, he and Emmaline will give LaRose to the grieving Peter and Nola. “Our son will be your son now,” they tell them. LaRose is quickly absorbed into his new family. Plagued by thoughts of suicide, Nola dotes on him, keeping her darkness at bay. His fierce, rebellious new “sister,” Maggie, welcomes him as a coconspirator who can ease her volatile mother’s terrifying moods. Gradually he’s allowed shared visits with his birth family, whose sorrow mirrors the Raviches’ own. As the years pass, LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the Irons and the Raviches, and eventually their mutual pain begins to heal. But when a vengeful man with a long-standing grudge against Landreaux begins raising trouble, hurling accusations of a cover-up the day Dusty died, he threatens the tenuous peace that has kept these two fragile families whole. Inspiring and affecting, LaRose is a powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart, and an unforgettable, dazzling tour de force from one of America’s most distinguished literary masters.

The Roman de la rose in its Philosophical Context offers a new interpretation of the long and complex medieval allegorical poem written by Guillaume de Lorris and Jean de Meun in the thirteenth century, a work that became one of the most influential works of vernacular literature in the European Middle Ages. The scope and sophistication of the poem's content, especially in Jean's continuation, has long been acknowledged, but this is the first book-length study to offer an in-depth analysis of how the Rose draws on, and engages with, medieval philosophy, in particular with the Aristotelianism that dominated universities in the thirteenth century. It considers the limitations and possibilities of approaching ideas through the medium of poetic fiction, whose lies paradoxically promise truth and whose ambiguities and self-contradiction make it hard to discern its positions. This indeterminacy allows poetry to investigate the world and the self in ways not available to texts produced in the Scholastic context of universities, especially those of the University of Paris, whose philosophical controversies in the 1270s form the backdrop against which the poem is analysed. At the heart of the Rose are the three ideas of art, nature, and ethics, which cluster around its central subject: love. While the book offers larger claims about the Rose's philosophical agenda, different chapters consider the specifics of how it draws on, and responds to, Roman poetry, twelfth-century Neoplatonism, and thirteenth-century Aristotelianism in broaching questions about desire, epistemology, human nature, the imagination, primitivism, the philosophy of art, and the ethics of money.

Les mouvements sociaux sur Internet ont émergé comme un acteur incontournable des grands bouleversements traversés par les pays en quête de démocratie. Les contours de ces mouvements, les lieux où ils évoluent et les volontés qui s'y expriment, constituent un terrain d'investigation fondamental tant les enjeux qui leur sont associés pèsent sur le quotidien de sociétés en pleine mutation. Issus d'expériences sociales, culturelles et académiques différentes, les contributions de cet ouvrage font ressortir les incertitudes, les impasses et les espoirs qui accompagnent les "processus de transition démocratique" traversés par ces sociétés, du Moyen-Orient à l'Europe de l'Est, du Maghreb à l'Amérique latine, au prisme de ces nouveaux acteurs du net. S'imposant à tout le champ des sciences sociales, l'étude des mouvements sociaux en ligne a le mérite d'agiter des questions plus ou moins classiques (la démocratie, la perception de l'événement historique, les frontières des territoires individuel et collectif, le temps social et la biographie de l'acteur, les institutions politiques traditionnelles et la métamorphose de l'opinion publique, la citoyenneté), mais en les revisitant à partir d'une nouvelle donne, d'une "historicité" dont les attributs appellent à bousculer de nombreux paradigmes. Les réseaux sociaux en ligne sont-ils des expérimentations de la démocratie ? Le cyberespace confère-t-il à la prise de parole et à la circulation des discours en société de nouvelles règles susceptibles de redistribuer les rôles et les pouvoirs entre les acteurs ? La voix féminine y aura-t-elle un nouveau statut ? Assistons-nous à la naissance "d'une nouvelle citoyenneté" condamnée à s'épanouir, à se forger et à bricoler sa matière dans les interstices des territoires "matériel" et virtuel ? Quelles en seraient les formes de légitimité ? Après, Les nouvelles sociabilités du Net en Méditerranée et Le cvberactivisme au Maghreb et dans le monde arabe, publiés respectivement en septembre 2012 et en janvier 2013 aux éditions Karthala, ce troisième ouvrage de Sihem Najar vient clore une réflexion sur les différentes facettes des transformations induites par la galaxie Internet dans les régions méditerranéennes et dans le monde arabe en période d'importants bouleversements politiques.
