Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Claire White presents a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective on the ‘alternation of toil and festivity’ during the nineteenth century
… . White’s book provides an innovative interdisciplinary approach to questions on the discourse surrounding nineteenth-century French literature and art, framing the larger philosophical debates generated by the tensions between modernity and modernism in the context of work and leisure.” (Karen Turman, Nineteenth-Century French Studies,
Vol. 44, Winter, 2015/2016)
