-Bernanos, Georges

Georges Bernanos was praised by André Malraux as one of the greatest French Novelists of his time, even ahead of Sartre, Camus, Gide and others.

This book was adapted into an award winning film by Robert Bresson.  It's layered, fitful and immensely life-like delivery is one of the few novels that really deserves to be put in the same category as Dostoyevsky.  The reviews of Paul Schrader's Recent film "First Reformed" have critics buzzing with comparisons to this book and the successful French film of the same name...

-Rousseau, Jean-Jacques

   *Editor's Note:

 We've listed Rousseau's Confessions in our
 Prose / Literature section due to its value as   an early example of the extreme subjectivity   in loosely autobiographical prose found later   in Proust, Thomas Wolfe, and Henry Miller.

 It is neither fiction nor non-fiction...due to its   massive literary importance, it would be a   great injustice to relegate this work to 'mere   biography'.

-Sacher-Masoch, Leopold von

 *Editor's Note:

 From this little erotic novella, we get the   word: Masochist, named after its author   Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, whose themes   helped to illustrate this phenomenon.

Law of Jante

 1- You're not to think you are anything special. 
 2- You're not to think you are as good as we are.
 3- You're not to think you are smarter than we are.
 4- You're not to imagine yourself better than we are.
 5- You're not to think you know more than we do.
 6- You're not to think you are more important than we are.
 7- You're not to think you are good at anything.
 8- You're not to laugh at us.
 9- You're not to think anyone cares about you.
10- You're not to think you can teach us anything.
11- Perhaps you don't think we know a few things about you?

     The Law of Jante - is the description of a pattern of group behaviour towards individuals within Nordic countries that negatively portrays and criticises individual success and achievement as unworthy and inappropriate. The Jante Law as a concept was created by the Dano-Norwegian author Aksel Sandemose, who, in his novel A Fugitive Crosses His Tracks (En flyktning krysser sitt spor, 1933, English translation published in the USA in 1936), identified the Law of Jante as ten rules. Sandemose's novel portrays the small Danish town Jante (modelled upon his native town Nykøbing Mors as it was at the beginning of the 20th century, but typical of all small towns and communities), where nobody is anonymous.
        Used generally in colloquial speech in the Nordic countries as a sociological term to describe a condescending attitude towards individuality and success, the term refers to a mentality that diminishes individual effort and places all emphasis on the collective, while simultaneously denigrating those who try to stand out as individual achievers.
