Description

This study seeks to reconstruct nineteenth-century French literary culture's pervasive 'dream of stone' by drawing not only upon an array of authors and works, but also upon diverse sorts of evidence, from journalism to poetry, caricature to statuary, postcards to public monuments, while focusing on the lives and work of three of the period's most celebrated writers: Honore de Balzac, George Sand, and Victor Hugo.
