This book traces the history of French literature from its
beginnings to the present. Within its remarkably brief compass, it
offers a wide-ranging, personal, and detailed--though
selective--account of major writers and movements. Developments in
French literature are presented in an innovative way, not as an
even sequence of literary events but as a series of stories told at
varying pace and with different kinds of focus. Readers can thus
take in the broad sweep of historical change, grasp the main
characteristics of major periods, or enjoy a close appraisal of
individual works and their contexts. The book is written in an
accessible and non-technical style that will make it attractive
both to students of French and to non-specialist readers.
