I have to admit that I got this book thinking that it is a book on how to learn French! This is a quite pedantic book on 'comparative literature on French language', although quite captivating even for me, not knowing the language. I learnt that although French is a very rich language - the poetry part of the language is comparatively weak. There are discussions on a variety of 'Classic French Authors', the operative word being 'Classic' which means authors from a much older period. The authors are listed in the beginning after a short introduction of the book. The introduction itself is very informative, and I gained a good knowledge of the origin of the language. Among the authors listed, it turned out, that I am familiar with some of them. So I read on with interest. The writing is very scholarly yet understandable and for a student in comparative literature the writing is very helpful and informative. Overall I had a positive experience with the book. Next time I will make sure that the book I am getting is about learning French!!

I purchased this thinking it was a course in learning how to speak French. My mistake. It's got some decent selections, but wasn't what I was looking for. I may change this review after I finish reading the collection, but thought I'd post my experience as there isn't much on the page to indicate otherwise for the casual browser.

The book gives a summary of some French work in English. I would prefer to have the original texts as well. So if one wants to have some talking pints about French classics this book helps. For learning the real material one should look somewhere else.

I thought it taught you french the old fashioned way (rote memorization). Its just about french literature and cultural things like that.

This classical work is a nice primer, if a little dense. Would look great on a shelf or just on a tablet.

There is far too much distance between the two cover pages.
