The Process of Art: Essays on Nineteenth-Century French Literature, Music, and Painting in Honour of Alain Raitt


This book brings together in one volume essays by leading scholars in the field of nineteenth-century literature and art, all of whom have been associated with Alan Raitt as either colleagues or pupils. It also includes an essay by the novelist Julian Barnes, who has frequently been inspired in his creative writing by nineteenth-century French literature and who was, himself, a pupil of Alan Raitt's. This is a tribute to a scholar with a truly international reputation who is one of Britain's leading authorities on the nineteenth century and all of the contributors are themselves distinguished scholars and critics of that period. The volume presents the most up to date thinking on French culture of the last century; it will be essential reading for all scholars interested in the period and a compulsory purchase for all academic libraries.
