A New History of French Literature

Book - 1989
Rate this:
This introduction to French literature from 842 AD - the date of the earliest surviving document in any romance language - to the present decade is the most compact and imaginative single volume guide available in English to the French literary tradition. It is not the customary inventory of authors and titles but rather a collection of wide-angled views of historical and cultural phenomena. It sets before us writers, public figures, criminals, saints, and monarchs, as well as religious, cultural, and social revolutions. It gives us books, paintings, public monuments, even TV shows.
