About this product
- DescriptionThis study centers on an evaluation of empirical self-hood, desire, and fiction in two texts by Stendhal, Vie de Henry Brulard and Armance, which amply demonstrate the psychological rupture and linguistic experiments at work in his writing. Specifically, in Vie it examines how the complex, disrupting dimension of Stendhal's writing affects his poetics of the sublime, his ironic need for selfreinvention, and his subversive relationship to established esthetic rms. Similarly the theme of desire is explored in Armance within the context of a decadent Romantic vel by creating an erotic subtext which suggests, but never names, the origin of the hero's secret. The close textual analysis sheds new light on Stendhal's skeptical approach to literature.
