Description

Although some of its ideas may not be completely new, Dr. King's work on the colors and titles of Stendhal's works being an extensive investigation of the establishment of "the many possible inter- and extra-textual significances and connotations of the color words and their semiology in other important literature." She demonstrates to both the professional and amateur literary critic a method of considering a particular body of work, but does not limit the investigation to one work, instead establishing her critical thesis and showing how it can be brought to bear upon works by Stendhal and other writers.
