This paper deals with the opposition between French passé composé and passé simple in fictional and some other texts. The author focuses on two questions in relation to the notions of island/isolation , namely the function and interpretation of the passé simple inserted into a discoursive context, and the use of the passé composé as a narrative tense, by commenting examples from Camus, Rousseau and Proust. It is argued that such phenomena are closely connected with psychological distance in the case of the passé simple , and with narrative disjunction in the case of the passé composé .

This paper discusses several prose epic works of modern Hungarian and Croatian literature which attempt to characterize each other through stereotypes formed about the other. Setting the characterizations of “the foreign” and of “the own” in prose epic works follows the demands of the national narrative in both literary traditions.*

The rise of the Hungarian Dance House Movement in Transylvania had both cultural and political implications. As an expression of interest in ethnic or national traditions, it constituted in part a gesture of resistance to the official cultural politics of communist Romania. This article offers a personal narrative of the growth and development of the dance house movement under these precarious circumstances.

The general plan of Goncharov’s novel Oblomov and Ugarov’s play The Death of Ilya Ilyich focuses on the problems of love and death as well as the narrative and metaphorical representation set of “leaving”. In this aspect, a common model of semiotization can be revealed, according to which all details are the facts of poetic construction.

The present article is an attempt to reconstruct the story of the man-eating Kalmasapada and the Bodhisattva Sutasoma in Old Turkic. It forms a part of the vast collection of avadanas called Dasakarmapathavadanamala which has hitherto only been partly published. The investigation of newly identified and placed fragments allows for an appraisal of the uniqueness of this narrative within this particular story cycle.

Attraverso una disamina dell’introduzione a Nonluoghi di Marc Augé, scritta dall’autore per il suo lavoro sull’antropologia della contemporaneità, questo studio esplora le modalità secondo cui si creano, nei suoi testi, ‘effetti di letterarietà’ pregnanti sia per le strategie narrative utilizzate, sia per i risvolti teorici in antropologia. La tesi che viene sostenuta è che, già nelle prefazioni dei testi di Augé, l’invenzione di ‘storie dei tempi moderni’ diventa un mezzo per riflettere criticamente su alcuni fenomeni tipici della nostra epoca, quali le nuove formazioni spaziali, il senso della memoria e della storia, le conseguenze delle nuove tecnologie e le relative forme di ritualità. Teoria della cultura e strategie narrative costruiscono insieme, nel caso di Augé, un tipo di testo che ostenta effetti letterari il cui valore dipende da intenti memorialistici, autoriflessivi ed estetici che si mischiano e si sovrappongono per consentirgli di avanzare una critica della surmodernità. L’analisi del prologue a Nonluoghi permette di riflettere sull’antropologia in quanto testo e di rivelare le dinamiche attraverso cui un autore costruisce, implicitamente o esplicitamente, lo stesso impianto teorico, le strategie narrative e i principi letterari cui affida il senso del suo lavoro.

In 1881 Hungarian painter Mihály Zichy gave a pen drawing entitled Du berceau jusqu’au cercueil as a gift to Franz Liszt who was responsible for the musical education of Zichy’s daughter. Inspired by the drawing, Liszt composed the symphonic poem Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe / Du berceau jusqu’à la tombe (From the Cradle to the Grave). The first edition of the symphonic poem was illustrated by Zichy’s drawing. The painter later extended the subject with a number of narrative parts in order to illustrate those variety in which music can appear. This new graphic work Music Accompanies from the Cradle to the Grave was composed of consecutive and juxtaposed images associating film stills. He utilized this second variation in 1892 for planning the decoration of a concert hall in Saint Petersburg. In the shift from narrative to allegorical content these two graphic works together contain a hidden allegory of life and death.
