[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. - Internet Bookwatch/Midwest Book Review
