Language: English . Brand New Book. This comprehensive exploration of curiosity in the fiction and life-writing of Andre Gide (1869-1951) is an important modernist contribution to the field of curiosity in literature and cultural studies more broadly. Curiosity was a credo for Gide. By observing the world and then manifesting in writing these observations, he stimulates the curiosity of readers, conceived as virtual conduits of a curiosity once his own. Using a thematic structure of sexual, scientific and writerly curiosity, this volume identifies processes of curiosity in the life-writing (including the travel-writing) which illuminate processes in the fiction, and vice versa. Theories of fetishism, gender and sexuality are applied to Gide s corpus to illustrate his championing of a masculine curiosity of enlightenment and adventure over a feminised curiosite-defaillance of disobedience and harm, and to explore objects eliciting his incuriosity. Gide s creativity is nourished by his curiosity, as close readings of his work informed by Melanie Klein s psychoanalytic writing on epistemophilia reveal. Curiosity is a rewarding, non-reductionist perspective from which the exceptional variety of Gide s subject matter, style and genre can be more coherently understood. Research draws principally on the six Pleiade volumes of Gide s /uvre, published 1996-2009. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789042027268
