French Forum Spring/Fall 2014 Vol. 39, Nos. 23 ops and posits her argument: if French literature was (and continues to be) taxonomized in oppositional terms like romanticism/realism and symbolism/naturalism, impressionism in literature is that category that is beyond oppositions and defies categorisation. It is marginal, fragmented, and elusive. While this final statement is demonstrated convincingly, I do hesitate about some of Pouzet-Duzer's premises; for even as she asserts the slipperiness of the term impressionism in the literary context, she seems to retain other "isms" as stable aesthetic constructs, minimizing the nuance and contradictions that are built into them as well. Such hesitations notwithstanding, L'Impressionisme littéraire is a finely argued book. Pouzet-Duzer's erudition is impressive and wide-ranging but does not weigh down this very readable and beautifully illustrated book, which I fully expect to become a standard for students and scholars interested in the rich exchanges between authors and painters, texts and images in late nineteenth-century France.
