Stendhal: A Collection of Critical Essays. Twentieth Century Views Series.
Brombert, Victor, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Victor Brombert, Martin Turnell, Erich Auerbach, Jean Prevost, Raymond Giraud, Irving Howe, Judd D. Hubert, Leon Blum, Jean Starobinski, Jean-Pierre Richard, and Simone de Beauvoir--all dealing with the biography and literary work of Stendhal. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. Divided into two major sections--"The Novels" and "The Novelist"--the essays include "Romantic Realism in Lucien Leuwen,""Stendhal: The Politics of Survival,""A Theoretical Outline of 'Beylism,'""Truth in Masquerade," and "Stendhal, Analyst or Amorist." A chronology of important dates in Stendhal's life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a twelve-item bibliography of works on Stendhal complete the volume.
