About this book

This collection engages with questions of influence, a vexed and problematic concept whose intellectual history is both ancient and vast. It examines a range of texts written in French, sometimes in dialogue with visual/musical works, drawn mainly from the eighteenth century onwards. Connections are made with related work in a range of disciplines.

Reviews

“This volume of essays considers various manifestations of ‘influence’ in modern French literature and is a welcome addition to the Palgrave Studies in Modern European Literature series. … this volume provides a valuable contribution to our understanding of the term ‘influence,’ … and it will interest literary scholars and historians alike.” (Audra Merfeld-Langston, Studies on 20th & 21st Century Literature, Vol. 40 (2), 2016)


'Questions of Influence is a major contribution to, and updating of, our understanding of the ways in which 'influence' works not only in literature but also in other art-forms, and in relationships between these. Exploring 'influence' in a newly sophisticated way, the book draws on a wide range of European writers, artists and thinkers, and showcases numerous talented critics working at the cutting edge of their fields. It will be indispensable both for those working on the individual figures who form the case studies of the book and for those who want to re-conceptualise the slippery concept of influence and the lateral, as well as direct, modes in which it operates. Each chapter is beautifully presented and lucidly argued, and the whole book demonstrates remarkable intellectual versatility and originality.' - Alison Finch, University of Cambridge, UK.
