The early modern research programme is pleased to announce the publication of a French translation of Daniel Defoe’s The Storm:

La Grande Tempête

Daniel Defoe, La Grande Tempête. Traduction et édition critique par Nathalie Bernard et Emmanuelle Peraldo, Collection Littératures du Monde, sous la direction d’Alain Montandon et Françoise Lavocat, Classiques Garnier, 2018.

N°24, 244 p. 15×22 cm

Broché, ISBN 978-2-406-06809-9

Relié, ISBN 978-2-406-06810-5

Ouvrage publié avec le soutien du Laboratoire d’Etudes et de Recherche sur le Monde Anglophone (LERMA, Aix-Marseille Université) et de l’Institut d’Etudes Transculturelles et Transtextuelles (IETT, Université Jean Moulin – Lyon III)

La Grande Tempête est la traduction de The Storm (1704), ouvrage publié par Daniel Defoe quelques mois après la violente tempête survenue à la fin de l’année 1703. Souvent considéré par la critique comme l’un des premiers écrits journalistiques de grande ampleur, le texte prend la forme d’un recueil d’environ 70 lettres qui témoignent des dégâts causés par cette catastrophe naturelle, ainsi que de divers cas de saluts attribués à la Providence divine.

Exciting new digital resources

For the autumn of 2017, early modernists await with eager anticipation a new digital project, at https://www.newberry.org/religious-change

Résultat de recherche d'images pour "religious change 1450-1700"

It is best described in its own words:

“In Religious Change and Print, 1450-1700 (opening September 14), visitors will see the Reformation through the eyes of the people who experienced the transformations it spread across Europe and the Americas: preachers and teachers, travelers and traders, writers and printers. Featuring more than 150 objects from the Newberry’s collection—from Bibles, tracts, and poems to maps, music, and art—Religious Change and Print will show how the intertwining of religion and print led to realignments of power that even revolutionaries had trouble keeping up with.”
