These essays celebrate the humanist tradition of European literature that runs from Balzac, through Tolstoy and Stendhal, to Zola and beyond. Lukacs sees this tradition as the expression of humanism. Seen in this light, the great works of nineteenth-century literature have an immediate and overwhelming relevance to our need today to change society.(Publisher). Good. Item #9451
