A tour de force, a reliable work of reference, and an essential working tool. (A 100 French Titles No. 4)
Peter France's fine volume ... a remarkable and enduring work of great scholarly weight. (Times Higher Education Supplement)
the extended limits of its brief are glossed with admirable and disarming circumspection by the editor in his introduction ... It is the work of a distinguished team of contributors and, although the majority are geographically based in the Anglo-Saxon world, their familiarity with the French critical spectrum is manifested both textually and bibliographically ... this is a remarkable and enduring work of great scholarly weight ... there is at last an authoritative article to which we can refer colleagues from other disciplines in search of a summary of post-structuralism. (Times Higher Education Supplement)
Obviously more up to date, but above all far vaster in geographical and generic scope than the first Oxford Companion and as such a very welcome publication...as near indispensable as possible...recommend it one certainly should, and never without a murmur of gratitude and congratulations to Peter France (Forum for Modern Language Studies)
for the modest price of just £30, I can reach out expecting to find clearly written, expert (130 of them) and up-to-date articles on what I am looking for (Tony Callen, University of Portsmouth, Modern & Contemporary France 1996)
The New Oxford Companion to Literature in French is far more than a simple revision of the original Oxford Companion to French Literature, published in 1959, and described by The Listener as the `standard work of reference for English-speaking enquirers into French literature'. As the change in title implies, this completely new work presents an authoritative guide not only to ten centuries of literature produced in the territory now called France, but also to the rich literary output of other French-speaking countries around the world.
The scope of the Companion is deliberately open and inclusive, challenging and extending the traditional canon. Literature is understood in a broad sense, ranging from strip cartoon and pamphlet to tragedy and epic, and particular attention is devoted to francophone writing from outside France. Written by an international team of specialists, entries cover individual authors and works - over 3,000 of them - from the troubadours to Césaire, and from La Princesse de Clèves to La Vie mode d'emploi. Each is discussed in detail within their historical, cultural, and intellectual context.
Among the new features of the Companion are the substantial essay-entries, reflecting up-to-date scholarship and theoretical debates on topics such as:
- literary movements and genres
- historical subjects such as chivalry, or Occupation and Resistance in wartime France
- movements of thought from Scholasticism to feminism
- linguistic topics
- the sciences
- the arts and media, including opera, cinema, and press
As a divertissement for readers, an entry on `Quotations' lists 100 well-known quotations from the canon of French literature.
Adventurous and wide-ranging, The New Oxford Companion to Literature in French will be an indispensable and hugely enjoyable reference work for all scholars, students and general readers.
