On the hottest day of the summer of 1934, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is Robbie Turner, her childhood friend who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have been changed for ever. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not even imagined at its start, and will have become victims of the younger girl's imagination. Briony will have witnessed mysteries, and committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone.

Cet ouvrage offre une analyse détaillée et problématisée du roman de Ian McEwan Atonement (2001) et de son adaptation filmique par Joe Wright (2007). Les deux oeuvres sont replacées dans leur contexte et étudiées notamment à travers le prisme de la métafiction. Un rappel des principaux enjeux de la théorie de l'adaptation est proposé en introduction. L'ouvrage met ensuite en lumière les modalités de questionnement des chronologies de la création dans le roman et dans le film, propose une interprétation des distorsions génériques, linguistiques et esthétiques au coeur de Atonement, et met au jour les ambiguïtés éthiques et esthétiques de la démarche artistique de Briony, entre réalisme et esthétique du faux, manipulation et (faux) indices. Cet ouvrage est au programme du concours d'agrégation d'anglais 2018.

This book tells the story of how nineteenth-century writers turned to the realist novel in order to reimagine Jesus during a century where traditional religious faith appeared increasingly untenable. Re-workings of the canonical Gospels and other projects to demythologize the story of Jesus are frequently treated as projects aiming to secularize and even discredit traditional Christian faith. The novels of Charles Kingsley, George Eliot, Eliza Lynn Linton, and Mary Augusta Ward, however, demonstrate that the work of bringing the Christian tradition of prophet, priest, and king into conversation with a rapidly changing world can at times be a form of authentic faith-even a faith that remains rooted in the Bible and historic Christianity, while simultaneously creating a space that allows traditional understandings of Jesus' identity to evolve.
