Sample text

Critics have commented on the value and substance in this obscured spontaneous Julien. For instance, for D.

This focus is appropriate to the historical moment; character, as Luka´cs said, stands as the nucleus of modern fiction, and much of the novel seems to maintain this principle. For months, Julien is unable to transcend the Hoˆtel de La Mole, unable to depart.
