Subversions of Verisimilitude

Lawrence R. Schehr

Fordham University Press

To move from the retrospective and nostalgic view of the Restoration that is Balzac's to the world leading to the Second World War that is Sartre's is to cover a bit over a century of tumultuous change, industrial and economic revolution, and social evolution in mores, class structure, and demographics to an extent that the West had never before seen. While verisimilitude remains the anchor of all of these works, analyses of each of them show disruptions strengthen and deepen the narrative. Though all of these authors transform evolutions, still there are no authors the same.

Keywords:   Restoration, Balzac, Sartre, evolution, mores, Second World War, class structure, demographics
