About this title


One of the primary social changes ushered in by the French Revolution was the legalization of divorce in 1792. Diluted by the Civil Code and suppressed by the Restoration, divorce was only fully established in France by the Loi Naquet of 1884. French Divorce Fiction from the Revolution to the First World War tracks the part played by novels in this conflict between the secular rights of individual citizens and the sanctity of the traditional family. Inspired by the sociologists Zygmunt Bauman and Anthony Giddens, White's account culminates in the first sustained analysis of the role of divorce in the refashioning of life narratives during the early decades of the Third Republic. As such, it redefines the relationships between canonical authors such as Maupassant and Colette, rediscovered women novelists like Marcelle Tinayre and Camille Pert, and long-neglected patriarchs such as Paul Bourget and Anatole France. Nicholas White teaches French in the University of Cambridge where he is a Fellow of Emmanuel College.
