  • François Mauriacby Edward T. Welch

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 56.00

    While François Mauriac’s reputation as a novelist is well established, it is often forgotten that fiction forms only part of his output, and that in the post-war years especially, it was principally his activities as a journalist which kept him in the public eye.

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 67.20

    Much poetic writing in France in the post-1945 period is set in an elemental landscape and expressed through an impersonal poetic voice.

This study of three poets, André du Bouchet, Philippe Jaccottet and Bernard Noël, who have not been compared before, argues... more...
