Julien Green Complete Works Volume 6. French Language.

£19.99

Product description

Julien Green (born Julian Hartridge Green) was an author best known for his novels, plays, essays, and a multi-volume journal that he wrote from 1928 to 1996. In 1971 he became the first non-French national to be accepted as a member of the prestigious Académie Française, the self-described "guardians of the French language.

In France, both during his life and today, Green's reputation rests principally not on his novels, but on his diary, published in nineteen volumes, and spanning the years 1919 to 1998. These volumes provide a chronicle of his literary and religious life, and a unique window on the artistic and literary scene in Paris over a span of eighty years. Green's style, austere and employing to great effect the passé simple, a literary tense nearly abandoned by many of his French contemporaries, found favor with the Académie française

This book is Volume 6 of the complete works of Julien Green including the journal years 1972 - 1981. Written in French text, hardback, clean and tight, no inscriptions, brown leatherette over card covers, gilt-decorated spine and gilt titles, as new condition in plain glassine dust wrapper and cardboard sleeve. Slight marks on cardboard sleeve.
