Book Club | Constance: The Tragic and Scandalous life of Mrs. Oscar Wilde


In the spring of 1895 the life of Constance Wilde changed irrevocably. Up until the conviction of her husband Oscar for homosexual crimes, she had held a privileged place in society. Part of a gilded couple, she was a popular children's author, a fashion icon, and a leading campaigner for women's rights. Mrs. Oscar Wilde was a phenomenon in her own right. But that spring Constance's entire life was eclipsed by scandal. Forced to flee to the Continent with her two sons, her glittering literary and political career ended abruptly. Changing her name, she lived in exile until her death. Franny Moyle now tells Constance's story with a fresh eye and remarkable new material. Drawing on numerous unpublished letters, she brings to life the most poignant narrative of fin-de-siecle London and the Aesthetic Movement.

Book Discussion | On Finding and Fabricating: Memory and Family History in Katja Petrowskaja’s Maybe Esther


A topic that is being broadly discussed in contemporary German and U.S.-American literature is a desire for continuity, identity, and connection that traverse borders and generations, and into which an individual can be integrated and absorbed. And there is this longing for trustworthy memories and cross-generational belonging, and this longing is also expressed in the text at the core of this lecture, Katja Petrowskaja’s award-winning collection of family stories, Maybe Esther. Susanne Rohr will present her reading of this book, which she understands as a kind of exoneration of the so-called “third generation of survivors.” A representative of this generation speaks here, one who thoughtfully exercises her right to participate in a discussion on the question of whether, as a child or grandchild of a survivor, one can speak about the effect of the Holocaust on one’s own life.

Author Reading | Parisian Lives: Samuel Beckett, Simone de Beauvoir, and Me


In 1971, Deirdre Bair was a journalist and recently minted Ph.D. who managed to secure access to Nobel Prize-winning author Samuel Beckett. He agreed that she could write his biography despite never having written–or even read–a biography herself. The next seven years of intimate conversations, intercontinental research, and peculiar cat-and-mouse games resulted in Samuel Beckett: A Biography, which went on to win the National Book Award and propel Deirdre to her next subject: Simone de Beauvoir. The catch? De Beauvoir and Beckett despised each other–and lived essentially on the same street. While quite literally dodging one subject or the other, and sometimes hiding out in the backrooms of the great cafés of Paris, Bair learned that what works in terms of process for one biography rarely applies to the next. Her seven-year relationship with the domineering and difficult de Beauvoir required a radical change in approach, yielding another groundbreaking literary profile.

Lecture | On the Shoulders of Giants: Rabelaisian Authorial Avatars in the Age of Print


The point of departure for this talk is the controversial hypothesis that Les Œuvres de Louise Labé was not the work of a woman author, but rather a literary hoax by a group of male poets. Rather than weighing in on this on-going polemic, however, Virginia Krause asks to what extent the conditions underlying the Labé hypothesis apply more generally to works from this period, including those works whose authorship is deemed authentic. If authors are made rather than born, what, exactly made an author an author in early modern France?
