Product description

Review

This is an excellent translation of a tale of the supernatural by a major French author. With her searing critique of Catholicism and its labyrinthine structures, Sand in Spiridion deconstructs her culture in a way similar to what Mary Shelley has done in Frankenstein. Both works are effective as horror stories, but both can also sustain serious academic inquiry, yielding still deeper rewards. Beyond academe, serious students of religion will also find that Spiridion's subject matter raises provocative theological questions. -- Lynn Hoggard, translator of Nelida by Marie d'Agoult --This text refers to the paperback edition.
