Overview

Vallès (1832-85) had a purpose in writing so strong, says Long (French, College of Charleston, South Carolina) that the disapproval of his contemporaries could not damp his opinions and concerns exposing the various injustices of his society. Focusing on his trilogy portraying how a severely mistreated boy grew into a disillusioned young man who finally became a social outcast participating in the political upheaval of the Paris Commune, she looks at the relationship between Self and Other that manifests in triangular desire, discourses of power and revolt, and his combination of external and internal realism.
