The Wanderer - Le Grand Meaulnes

£34.99

Product description

Le Grand Meaulnes is the only novel by French author Alain-Fournier, who was killed in the first month of the First World War. The novel, published in 1913, a year before the author's death, is somewhat biographical – especially the name of the heroine Yvonne, for whom he had a doomed infatuation in Paris. Translated by Francoise Delisle, the book has illustrations by John Minton, and an introduction by Bonamy Dobree.

Fifteen-year-old François Seurel narrates the story of his friendship with seventeen-year-old Augustin Meaulnes as Meaulnes searches for his lost love. Impulsive, reckless and heroic, Meaulnes embodies the romantic ideal, the search for the unobtainable, and the mysterious world between childhood and adulthood.

The green covers have some faint soiling marks on the front, and corners and spine ends are bumped and rubbed with light fraying and surface wear; there is similar slight wear down spine edges. Inside, the front and rear end papers and free end papers are browned with age, as are the text block edges. There is no jacket.
