Transcript Friday, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. I 1 FANTASTIC FUNERARY PROJECTS Room 112 Chair: Kathleen Russo, Florida Atlantic University. Robert Neuman, Florida State University. "Fantasy and the Cult of the Dead: The Revolutionary Architects and Their Sources." The imaginary tomb projects conceived by the Revolutionary Architects in late 18th Century France are characterized by megalomaniacal scale, romantic shadowiness, and geometric purity. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the brilliant designs of Boullee, Ledoux, and their circle, often interpreted as extravagant breaks with the past, were frequently an elaboration of formal and symbolic themes explored by architects of the Ancien Regime, when projects of visionary intensity were similarly conceived without regard for structural feasibility or cost. Daniel Bellante, Broward Community College. "Sources and Influences for Aldo Rossi's Cemetery at Modena." Aldo Rossi's cemetery at Modena (1976) is a complex and imaginative structure which reflects sources as varied as Mesopotamian ziggurats, and Nazi municipal buildings. Rossi's controversial "post-modern" style recalls the futuristic film fantasy "Metropolis" and evokes the haunting solitude of de Chirico's surrealist paintings. This presentation will examine these and other influences on Rossi's Modena Cemetery project. Liana Cheney, University of Lowell. "Fantastic Funerary Art in Nineteenth Century Italian Cemeteries." Italian sepulchral sculpture flourished in the cemeteries of Verona, Genova, and Milan in the Nineteenth Century. The Italian funerary sculptor became a commercial craftsman in representing scenes associated with death. The haunting images of Dead Christ and Danse Macabre of the Medieval period were assimilated and translated into new erotic forms of nude, weeping, and sleeping females. The erotic images reflected the Realistic and Romantic vocabulary of the Nineteenth Century. The Italian artistic mind was able to whimsically create funerary images in an absurd manner by allowing fantasy to camouflage and transform decaying cadavers into living souls. FANTASY IN FRENCH LITERATURE AND FILM Room 116 Chair: Yolanda Astarita Patterson, California State University. Ruth B. Antosh, Colgate University. "Unlocking the Riddle of Huysmans' Bi Rade." J. K. Huysmans' novel En Rade consists largely of an extended description of a crumbling, isolated castle and the surrounding countryside. Virtually nothing happens in the novel, although the protagonist, Jacques Maries, has three bizarre dreams which appear to have no relationship to the rest of the novel. The dream sequences are not, as is generally thought, entirely unrelated to the "real" world of the castle and its environs. Jacques' dreams are representative of his search for identity and for permanence, stability and transcendence in a world thata is disintegrating (the castle). The paper will consider the problem of whether En Rade is a novel in the Gothic tradition, or perhaps a sort of satire of the Gothic novel. Scott Bates, The University of the South. "The Phallic French Moon Voyage, From Jules Verne to Guillaume Apollinaire." W. H. Auden described the Apollo mission to the moon as a "phallic triumph" of "the boys." The age-old metaphor that equates the moon with the hindquarters and the lunar voyage with anal intercourse is as old as Aristophanes and found in a number of literary texts of the last two centuries. A few selected phallic moon voyages in late nineteenth and early twentieth century French literature are analyzed, from Jules Verne's De la terre a la lune, Verlaine's Fetes galantes, and Rimbaud's prose poems to Apollinaire's "Lunaire," including Georges Melies' "Un Voyage a la lune" and Kenneth Anger's "La Lime des lapins." Yolanda Astarita Patterson, California State University. "Fantasies of Childhood in 20th Century France: From Le Grand Meaulnes to Truffaut's Small Change." Alain-Fournier's novel Le Grand Meaulnes was both required and preferred reading for many of the leading French intellectuals of our century. Set in a provincial boys' school, it explores the often painful passage from childhood through adolescence to maturity, with its changing moods of suspicion, camaraderie, competition, violence, rebellion, escape, and romantic fantasy. These themes are echoed in a series of films portraying life in boys' schools which span a half century of French cinema: Abel Gance's Napoleon, Jean Vigo's Zero de conduite, Albert Lamorisse's Le Ballon rouge, Francois Truffaut's Les Quatre Cents Coups and more recent L'Argent de poche. Mark Levy, California State University. "Fantasy in Godard's Alphaville." "There are times when reality becomes too complex for oral communication but legend gives it a form by which it pervades the entire world," says the computer Alpha 60 in Godard's Alphaville. Dramatizing the alienating effects of high technology in mythopoetic form, Godard shows what cannot be said by a factual or documentary approach. Not only does Godard's legend making involve a novel use of the science fiction genre, but he also refers to other kinds of fantasy in this film: Greek mythology, grade B American gangster movies, and French surrealist poetry. This paper will investigate the fantasy elements which helped to establish Alphaville as one of Godard's most compelling films. 19 SR9H 'HSffHf! ■H I WIS mmmt ^iraranaffiHBHi £81 Ira ' - nHH % ■RHMBII KB H
