If the novelle is not seen as a proto-realist narrative with a fair degree of historical accuracy—and there is good reason not to accept this conventional view—then how is it to be read, especially considering its distorted and frequently hyperbolic fictions? American and British scholars of French literature take up the question.

The quotations are in French. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
