In this authoritative and accessible account of French literature, sixteen essays by leading specialists offer provocative insights into French literary culture, its genres, movements, themes, and historic turning points, including the cultural and linguistic challenges of today's multi-ethnic France. The French have, over the centuries, invented and reinvented writing, from the Arthurian romances of Chrétien de Troyes to Montaigne's Essays, which gave the world a new literary form and a new standard for writing about personal thought and experience; from the highly polished tragedies of French classicism to the satirical novels of the Enlightenment; from Proust's explorations of social and sexual mores to the 'New Novel' of the late twentieth century; and from Baudelaire's urban poetry to today's poetic experiments with sound and typography. The broad scope of this Companion, which goes beyond individual authors or periods, enables a deeper appreciation for the distinctive literature of France.

Book Description:

An authoritative and accessible account of French literature from medieval romance to avant-garde poetry. It explores the medieval roots of modern literature; French tragedy; why the Romantics revered nature; how Proust helped create the modern novel; and the widely varying uses authors have made of the French language.

About the Author:

John D. Lyons is Commonwealth Professor of French at the University of Virginia, and Chevalier in the French Legion of Honor. He is the author of eight books on French literature, including French Literature: A Very Short Introduction (2010) and The Phantom of Chance: From Fortune to Randomness in Seventeenth-Century French Literature (2011).
