This collection of twelve essays written in English and French honors Victor Henri Brombert, the eminent humanist, thinker, and scholar of nineteenth- and twentieth-century European letters. Though their subjects range broadly over the literature, music, and painting of France, Russia, Italy, and Germany, many of the essays share concerns, topics, or methods, thus creating illuminating parallels and contrasts as well as internal coherence. Contributors are Simone Balay‚ Peter Brooks, Caryl Emerson, Jean Gaudon, Gerard Genette, Stirling Haig, Georges May, Jacques Neefs, Gerald Prince, Jean-Pierre Richard, Carol Rigolot, and Albert Sonnenfeld.
