Editorial Reviews

Review

These letters have the same fascination and compelling narrative drive as those in the first volume...We have, in the guise of letters, what comes close to being a full-fledged biography. (Howard Moss Washington Post Book World)

[Steegmuller's] ear is so keenly attuned to the modulations of this correspondence and his craft is so accomplished that the English text is, as it were, transparent and trans-vocal. It is the voice of Flaubert we hear or, more precisely, the oral qualities of his epistolary style. Steegmuller plays Flaubert for us the way a musician plays the music of a master. (Victor Brombert American Scholar)

Steegmuller's connecting narrative and his annotations make this second volume as rich and attaching as the first. And, for once, Flaubert is seen alive and enacting himself. (V. S. Pritchett The Atlantic)

Steegmuller...is again a deft, witty and indefatigable commentator, stitching Flaubert's correspondence together with all the background information we need in order to appreciate it. Among his many fine asides, Mr. Steegmuller tells us that Proust disliked the style of Flaubert's letters even more than that of his novels; that Gide kept his volumes of them beside his bed like a bible. (Anatole Broyard New York Times)

Review

An enchanting book, one that combines so happily the art of the biographer and the art of the translator--and Francis Steegmuller is a master of both. Once one starts reading Flaubert's love letters, it's difficult to stop. (Leon Edel) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
