About this book

An emblematic figure of the 'bourgeois century,' the parvenu represents the Other on which a society depends. This drama of exclusion is symptomatic of nineteenth-century society: ambivalent about social mobility, oscillating between a new sense of opportunity for all and a backward-looking retrenchment to rigid social structures.

About the authors

Sarah Juliette Sasson is a lecturer in French and Romance Philology at Columbia Univeristy.

Reviews

"Longing to Belong is a perceptive and engaging addition to the scholarly conversation about the restructuring of national identity in the post-revolutionary era." - Kristin Samuelian, Associate Professor of English, George Mason University, USA
