Review

"This is an eclectic guide to eight 19th- and 20th-century French novels chosen for being widely considered timeless masterpieces in France and beyond….Students and general readers seeking a thorough understanding of these influential novels will benefit greatly from this outstanding guide. Highly recommended."

Library Journal, Starred Review



[M]asterpieces of French Literature is intended as a supplementary guide to aid comprehension and exploration, and not as a substitute for reading the work, nor is it the mechanical dissection and parsing of a Cliff's Notes - the essays here flow with far more depth, insight, and curiosity. Highly recommended for literature and literary studies shelves.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on October 11, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Masterpieces Of French Literature is a literary analysis written especially to help students better understand eight classic French novels. "The Stranger", "The Plague", "The Three Musketeers", "The Count of Monte Cristo", "Madame Bovary", "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", "Les Miserables", and "The Little Prince" are all examined in terms of narrative style, philosophy, historical relevance, biographical context, and much more. Although brief summaries of the novels are offered, Masterpieces Of French Literature is intended as a supplementary guide to aid comprehension and exploration, and not as a substitute for reading the work, nor is it the mechanical dissection and parsing of a Cliff's Notes - the essays here flow with far more depth, insight, and curiosity. Highly recommended for literature and literary studies shelves.
