About the Author

Brian Nelson is Professor of French Studies at Monash University, Melbourne.


'Will doubtless become an indispensable tool for researchers and students. ...remarkably coherent volume...By guiding us behind the scenes of his work with the aid of a range of critical approaches (genetic criticism, sociological criticism, feminist studies, amongst others) and of elegant but sound analysis, this book invites readers to immerse or reimmerse themselves in a prose which has lost nothing of its energy or vitality.' Australian Book Review
