Rousseau's Legacy : Emergence and Eclipse of the Writer in France Hardback


Rousseau's Legacy is an original and ambitious work of literary scholarship that focuses on the emergence with Rousseau of a new and influential paradigm of the writer who brings together revolutionary sociopolitical critique and `confessionalism'.

Combining a wide-ranging knowledge of contemporary theory with an informed interest in sociopolitical context and cultural history, the author goes on to explore the persistent importance of the Rousseauistparadigm through the close reading of works by a number of major French writers from Stendahl to Duras, Althusser, and Foucault.
