• Guantanamo

    Frank Smith

    "Le 23 janvier 2006, quatre ans après l'ouverture du camp pour terroristes présumés sur sa base navale de Guantanamo, le Pentagone est contraint par la presse américaine, au nom de la liberté d'information (Freedom of Information Act), de rendre publics les comptes-rendus d'interrogatoires de plusieurs centaines de prisonniers.
    Le département de la Défense décide de ne pas faire appel, s'incline et livre trois cent dix-sept procès-verbaux - certains comportant les noms des détenus - sous la forme de CD-rom ou accessibles à la demande sur son site Internet.
    Frank Smith se saisit des documents publiés, les déverrouille pour en faire une suite de récitatifs.
    Ça se lit comme une enquête pour dire l'innommable, par les seuls moyens de la langue."

  • This book presents several aspects of research on mathematics that have significant applications in engineering, modelling and social matters, discussing a number of current and future social issues and problems in which mathematical tools can be beneficial. Each chapter enhances our understanding of the research problems in a particular an area of study and highlights the latest advances made in that area. The self-contained contributions make the results and problems discussed accessible to readers, and provides references to enable those interested to follow subsequent studies in still developing fields. Presenting real-world applications, the book is a valuable resource for graduate students, researchers and educators. It appeals to general readers curious about the practical applications of mathematics in diverse scientific areas and social problems.

  • This volume comprises a reprinting and gloss of the original text of the 1933 Communist play Eight Men Speak. The play was banned by the Toronto police after its first performance, banned by the Winnipeg police shortly thereafter and subsequently banned by the Canadian Post Office. The play can be considered as one stage-the published text-of a meta-text that culminated in 1934 at Maple Leaf Gardens when the (then illegal) Communist Party of Canada celebrated the release of its leader, Tim Buck, from prison. Eight Men Speak had been written and staged on behalf of the campaign to free Buck by the Canadian Labour Defence League, the public advocacy group of the CPC.In its theatrical techniques, incorporating avant-garde expressionist staging, mass chant, agitprop and modernist dramaturgy, Eight Men Speak exemplified the vanguardist aesthetics of the Communist left in the years before the Popular Front. It is the first instance of the collective theatrical techniques that would become widespread in subsequent decades and formative in the development of modern Canadian drama. These include a decentred narrative, collaborative authorship and a refusal of dramaturgical linearity in favour of theatricalist demonstration. As such it is one of the most significant Canadian plays of the first half of the century, and, on the evidence of the surviving photograph of the mise-en-scene, one of the earliest examples of modernist staging in Canada.

  • " Avec les moyens de sa modernité propre, Franck Smith gagne le périlleux pari de mettre ensemble, dans la même voix, les mots du poème solitaire et ceux de l'échange dialogué. Il convoque, pour cela, avec hardiesse et simplicité, les hommes, les femmes, les dieux et les mythes. A travers plusieurs voix, dans un théâtre de verdure ouvert sur le cosmos et sur les mille étoiles qui nous regardent, la poésie, d'une bouche à l'autre, d'un personnage à l'autre, prend corps dans l'hésitation même qui l'institue et qu'à son tour elle instaure.
