Reviews provided by Syndetics


Written primarily for the advanced scholar and student of French poetry and fiction, this is a welcomed companion volume to Storey's Pierrot: A Critical History of a Mask (CH, May '79). He presents a detailed history of the 19th-century French pantomime from Jean-Gaspard Deburau to Georges Wague, and declares the ``stage'' of his title to be both scenic and psychic. These essays offer a compelling psychoanalytical consideration of the gradual weakening of the popular pantomimes to the advancement of the art of its admirers and scenarists: Nodier, Baudelaire, Gautier, Huysmans, Verlaine, and Mallarme. Supporting materials are a valuable handlist of pantomime scenarios and upward of 30 illustrations, some of which are receiving initial reproduction. Graduate readership.-R.G.
