Description

Excerpt from Jacquou the Rebel (Jacquou Le Croquant) Her fine traditions, her eighteenth century, and, above all, her great Revolution have made of France the most tolerant of countries. This and the insistent personality of most Frenchmen have caused her to become intensely individualized as a nation. To understand all the delicate nuances of the French character we must go to her contemporary novelists. The novel is so characteristic an expression of the French genius that every doctrine, and we may even say every emotion, has found an exponent in some great writer. Anatole France, for example, is the exponent of radicalism and of ironic thought, Maurice Barres of nationalism, Paul Bourget of clericalism, Pierre Loti of pure emotion and Octave Mirbeau of down-trodden and suffering humanity. These writers represent, of course, a great deal besides; but the peculiar avor of their work depends largely upon their individual bias. The French fiction known to the general novel-reading public in America hitherto has been limited and in the case of contemporary fiction rather misrepresentative. On the other hand, the scope of the present series, the library OF french fiction, is extremely broad, including books treating of the life of the various provinces as well as of the life of Paris, books in which all the types of men and women peculiar to France, and in which her manifold social life and manners, are depicted in a masterly fashion.
