Overview

In Friend and Foe, Frederick Harris examines the life and works of French authors Marcel Proust and André Gide. Proust and Gide clearly defined French literature in the first part of the twentieth century. This book contains the whole of correspondence between Proust and Gide, some letters translated in English for the first time. By looking at Proust and Gide simultaneously, looking at Proust and the whole coterie of writers and critics that gathered around Gide at the Nouvelle Revue Française (NRF), Harris provides a new context in which to assess both Proust and Gide. It forces consideration in a more incisive way of the key issues in both their careers: the Dreyfus Affair, World War I, homosexuality, and their art.

Editorial Reviews

Catherine Gide
. . . the composition of the book, extremely skillful, should arouse the interest of amateurs as well as specialists. . . . One takes a lot of interest and pleasure in reading your book.
French Review
Though targeting a general readership, the book, with its detailed analyses of these fascinating interactions, its organization (basically chronological but with certain thematic highlights), and its notes and index, should appeal to Gide or Proust scholars as well.
