This is the first critical biography of Xavier Marmier. The celebrity of Marmier was such that his death made headline news in most major newspapers in France. Marmier made his reputation as a traveler, travel writer, translator, literary critic, comparatist, journalist, novelist, poet, lecturer, linguist, ethnologist, social historian, and latterly as an outspoken member of the Académie française. His work had a great deal of influence, both direct and indirect, on literary and intellectual developments in France, and also had a significant impact in a number of the countries he visited.

Although his name still figures in studies of comparative literature or the history of travel writing, his innovations have gradually been eclipsed by his successors in various fields, resulting in the neglect of his overall achievements. Marmier's numerous and diverse achievements are assessed here for the first time in their intellectual and historical context, and within the framework of his colorful and somewhat controversial private life.

This volume will be essential reading for scholars and students of the history of nineteenth-century French literature and intellectual life, the history of literary criticism, travel writing, the introduction of foreign literature to France, and those with an interest in the intellectual, social and cultural history of the regions Marmier visited.

Review:

Wendy S. Mercer's biography of Xavier Marmier is in many respects a remarkable piece of work. Remarkable indeed for the quality and extent of the research undertaken in order to produce what is and will certainly remain the most comprehensive account of Marmier's life and publications. Remarkable also for the clarity and straightforwardness of Mercer's style and presentation which make her book very enjoyable to read ... But what makes Mercer's book remarkable in the first place is its subject: the incredibly rich and interesting life of Xavier Marmier. * Loic P. Guyon, Studies in Travel Writing *
