Product Description


`This study amply prepares the reader for Maeterlinck's minimalism with a clear and wide-ranging exposition of his achievement, elucidating the context for his experiments in his first writings for the theatre and in his poetry.' W.L.Hodson, Modern Language Review

`McGuinness's book is well written and contains, in addition to his own stimulating readings of Maeterlinck's work, much useful information that had never been gathered into a single, concise source.' April Wuensch, Modern Language Notes

`McGuinness does a fine job of showing how, from the electicism of the Symbolists' theater and theoretical musings, certain common principles emerge' April Wuensch, Modern Language Notes

`the first full-length study in English to appear in over a decade' April Wuensch, Modern Language Notes

`Patrick McGuinness's study is a welcome addition to the slim corpus of recent work on Maeterlinck.' April Wuensch, Modern Language Notes

`It warms the heart to see university presses continuing to publish such scholarly monographs' Nicholas White, Journal of European Studies

`the theoretically-informed close readings are often leavened by fascinating minutiae' Nicholas White, Journal of European Studies

`an impressively broad artistic contextualization' Nicholas White, Journal of European Studies

`one of the great virtues of this book is precisely its willingness to reflect the density of the literary and critical archive' Nicholas White, Journal of European Studies

`McGuiness's discussion ... is rich and comprehensive ... a penetrating analysis.' D.A. Collins, Choice, July/Aug. 00.
