Senna s’est rapprochée de la Matriarche ces derniers mois, et cette relation n’est pas sans conséquence. L’apprentie découvre des secrets déstabilisants concernant sa mère, des secrets qui remettront en doute ses propres convictions. Est-elle victime d’une manipulation ou de la terrible réalité ? Quoi qu’il en soit, Senna a de plus en plus de mal à rester centrée sur ses objectifs. La situation se complique d’autant plus qu’elle ressent d’étranges nouveaux symptômes, des symptômes qu’elle est la seule à subir. Alors que la jeune fille s’apprête à vivre ses derniers instants à Arpia et se prépare pour le fameux bal de fin d’initiation, elle doit faire face à un imprévu, un événement intempestif qui bouleversera tous ses plans.

The Metamorphosis begins almost comically. A man wakes up to find he has turned into an insect. But the claustrophobic, dirty room and the increasingly distressed narrator soon turn this into a tale of slow horror. Most horrifying of all is his family's reaction to his metamorphosis and their final solution to the problem.

"Mais comment vivaient-ils quand j'étais absent, réfléchis-je ? Et comment se fait-il que je ne me sois pas interrogé plus tôt de leur sort ? Certes, il n'est pas aisé d'adhérer à certaines vérités métaphysiques, même les plus flagrantes, si elles sont incompatibles avec notre capacité d'abdiquer, le temps d'un raisonnement par l'absurde, un minimum de "cartésianité". Mais je viens cependant d'assister au fonctionnement le plus matérialiste d'un appareil purement fictif ? C'est très simple, s'immisça alors Jeannot, sans plus me prévenir qu'il allait encore bouleverser davantage mes a priori de glébeux par sa capacité à lire comme dans un livre informatisé, dans mes pensées d'être de chair et d'os..." Où classer, dans quelle catégorie, cette chasse aux fugaces états d'âmes ? Pas plus dans le tiroir aventure que dans celui ésotérisme, avance lui-même le narrateur. Assumant cette liberté totale de ton qui caractérisait déjà le premier volume de cet OVNI littéraire, Édouard-Émile Alyac multiplie les niveaux de lecture et poursuit avec un enthousiasme débridé les aventures de ses personnages fictifs, ici enfin conscients de leur état. Expérimental et transgenre, irrévérencieux et malin : décidément à découvrir.

In Metamorphosis, Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman by trade, awakens one morning to find his body has mutated into that of a repulsive bug.

Whilst his family grow accustomed to supporting themselves without his once essential income, Gregor's suffering becomes ever more pronounced as he witnesses the corruption of their former dependence on him.

English Verb Classes and Alternations

In this rich reference work, Beth Levin classifies over 3,000 English verbs according to shared meaning and behavior. Levin starts with the hypothesis that a verb's meaning influences its syntactic behavior and develops it into a powerful tool for studying the English verb lexicon. She shows how identifying verbs with similar syntactic behavior provides an effective means of distinguishing semantically coherent verb classes, and isolates these classes by examining verb behavior with respect to a wide range of syntactic alternations that reflect verb meaning. The first part of the book sets out alternate ways in which verbs can express their arguments. The second presents classes of verbs that share a kernel of meaning and explores in detail the behavior of each class, drawing on the alternations in the first part. Levin's discussion of each class and alternation includes lists of relevant verbs, illustrative examples, comments on noteworthy properties, and bibliographic references. The result is an original, systematic picture of the organization of the verb inventory. Easy to use, English Verb Classes and Alternations sets the stage for further explorations of the interface between lexical semantics and syntax. It will prove indispensable for theoretical and computational linguists, psycholinguists, cognitive scientists, lexicographers, and teachers of English as a second language.
