Download e-book for iPad: Pornografie in de Nederlandse literatuur (Dutch Edition) by Arnon Grunberg,Joost Driel,Joost van Driel,Rick Honings

By Arnon Grunberg,Joost Driel,Joost van Driel,Rick Honings

Pornografie is een van de meest populaire, maar tegelijkertijd minst bestudeerde genres in de literatuur. Lange tijd hebben pornografische en erotische teksten in de taboesfeer verkeerd. Veel teksten zijn vernietigd of onbekend gebleven. Voor de literatuur- en cultuurgeschiedenis bieden zij echter een schat aan informatie.

In Pornografie in de literatuur buigen hedendaagse letterkundigen en schrijvers zich over de pornografische traditie in Nederland en Vlaanderen. Zij gaan in op de literaire functie van pornografie, maar ook op haar filosofische en sociologische achtergrond.

Zo verhaalt Herman Pleij over de noodzaak van vuilschrijverij in de middeleeuwen, vertelt Marita Mathijsen over â De bruiloft van Jacob Stootgraagâ uit de negentiende eeuw, beschrijft Ton Anbeek de functie van erotiek bij Wolkers en Reve en onderzoekt Marja Pruis de porno-uitdaging van hedendaagse schrijvers, van Oek de Jong tot Heleen van Royen. Arnon Grunberg tenslotte gaat op zoek naar â de mens achter de vunzigheidâ .

Pornografie in de literatuur biedt het eerste historische overzicht van wat misschien wel het meest subversieve style uit de Nederlandse literatuur is geweest.

Un basculement s’est opéré. Les Français prennent judgment of right and wrong que le sujet « Immigration-Insertion-Intégration » absorbe une half non négligeable de l’énergie de l. a. société française. C’est lui au nom duquel s’exercent l. a. terreur médiatique et l. a. censure par l. a. novlangue ; les hommes politiques sont accaparés par les discours et l’élaboration de politiques advert hoc d’intégration : inefficaces, voire contre-productives et chères. Au quotidien : échec scolaire ; économie parallèle dans les Zones Urbaines Sensibles ; agressions d’agents de l’ordre public ; infériorisation des femmes et violences à leur encontre… Membre du Haut Conseil à l’Intégration, l'auteur est aux premières loges pour constater l’ampleur des dégâts. Que s’est-il goé pour que l’intégration se dégrade autant ces dernières décennies ? Au-delà de l’importance des flux migratoires, ce qui a profondément changé, c’est le comportement de los angeles classe politique elle-même : pour les migrants de resource européenne, los angeles classe politique exigeait qu’ils s’adaptent à los angeles société française ; pour les migrants de resource non européenne, elle s’est mise à exiger que ce soit los angeles société française qui s’adapte à eux. Une « edition » qui s’est traduite par une dégradation de toutes les exigences : à l’École, dans l. a. laïcité, dans l. a. belief de los angeles citoyenneté, dans les politiques conduites par les gouvernements… Désormais, c’est notre héritage qui est menacé et que certains apprentis sorciers travaillent encore à faire voler en éclats. C’est le noyau identitaire français que certains veulent tout à fait fissurer.
