Paul Claudel : biographie by Marie-Josèphe Guers( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La biographie critique claudélienne est considérable à la mesure de l'immensité de l'oeuvre que ne dispensent pas intégralement les six "Pléiade" et les divers recueils de correspondance. Cet ouvrage a l'avantage d'être la première biographie totale dont la consistance est garantie par une thèse de doctorat, un appareil critique et un tableau synoptique imposants. L'auteur, tout en suivant l'ordre chronologique, a voulu surtout esquisser un portrait de l'intérieur à partir de l'oeuvre. Le résultat probant et honnête est d'une lecture passionnante
