Yale University Press 2002 . Mint in publishers cloth in like dustjacket. 256pp. Illustrated throughout. 1st edition. Pierre Puvis de Chavannes (1824-1898) was a towering figure in late nineteenth-century France. The country's greatest public painter, he created murals that decorated museums in Amiens, Rouen, and Lyons as well as major buildings in Paris - most notably the Pantheon, the Sorbonne, and the city hall. Critics from the political right, left, and centre, the avant-garde, the Academy, and the state all agreed on the importance of Puvis's murals. Avant-garde artists greatly admired and drew from his work. There was much controversy, however, over the meaning of these murals. This handsomely illustrated book is the first full-length examination of Puvis's murals and their critical reception during the artist's lifetime. Jennifer Shaw explains that Puvis's paintings were imagined to embody a vision of France. Although his regional images, allegories of the French heritage, and evocations of the nation as an embracing motherland were all part of a grand tradition of public art, Puvis's painting style was more closely aligned with the avant-garde. Rather than providing a specific narrative or allegory of France, Puvis's murals provoked viewers to experience their own fantasies of Frenchness; rather than using the close brushwork favoured by most of his contemporaries, Puvis used large flat areas of colour to render his subjects. Shaw persuasively argues that Puvis was the only painter of the period to unite the traditions of public art and modernist form. Her original analysis of Puvis's art underlines his importance to the history of modernism; her examination of the public response to his art illuminates debates about art, subjectivity, and national identity in fin de siScle France.

Author Roger Gard, Reader in English at Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London, has previously written books on Jane Austen, as well as on Henry James, and on the subject of teaching of English literature and fiction in schools ... He is quoted as saying, with regard to Jane Austen : " it may sound absurd to say that a novelist sometimes needs to be protected from her admirers. Nevertheless ... " ... Although Jane Austen has long been England's best-loved novelist, much criticism in modern times has tended to ignore the sheer appeal and accessibility of her novels ... and instead to treat them as mere material ... the preserve of academics, feminists, historical specialists, and would-be radical theorists ...
