Defying Gravity: Jean Paulhan's Interventions in Twentieth-Century French Intellectual History (Suny Series, the Margins of Literature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Best known for his long-serving editorship of the influential Parisian literary review, La Nouvelle Revue Francaise, Jean Paulhan is now widely acknowledged as one of the most central yet least understood figures of twentieth century French intellectual and literary history. Syrotinski's study admirably performs the dual purpose of introducing a genuinely innovative and distinctive writer to a general anglophone readership, while engaging critically with his texts and their reception. Syrotinski's readings of Paulhan are both original and provocative, and firmly establish him as an unavoidable point of reference for twentieth-century French literary history and theory.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 193-200) and index.
