Harry Steinhauer, Felix Walter
MacMillan, 1941 - French literature
The anthology is the stepchild among textbooks; disliked by everybody, it must nevertheless be endured. This anthology consists of complete representative classics of French literature from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, with a liberal selection from other important works which could not be reprinted in full. Intended for undergraduates, these volumes provide scholarly texts based on the most authoritative editions of the works, with modernized spelling, and footnotes for terms, phrases, persons, and incidents that require clarification. This should help students to approach the texts with greater understanding, therefore increasing appreciation for the literary excellence and enduring prestige of these texts in French letters.
