Description

The Napoleonic Image in Hardy and Tolstoy, by Raymond Marcus, is an examination of the profound impact Napoleon Bonaparte had upon the literary work of these two world-renowned authors, is based upon a theme Mr. Marcus originally explored while researching and writing his master’s thesis at Columbia University.  Tolstoy and Hardy were contemporaries, born only twelve years apart and only a few decades after the death of Napoleon; at the time, the French emperor’s historical legacy was still quite powerful, especially in Russia and in England.  Both Realists, the two drew upon still-vivid nation memories for much of their material  In analyzing the writings of these two giants of literature, Marcus has taken care to evaluate them in all their broad historical, sociological, psychological and philosophical contents.  Along the way, he provides brilliant new appreciations and astonishing insights into their timeless novels.
