Comments & Further Information

This trade paperback edition is a re-issue of the Tartarus First Limited Edition hardback published in 1999.  Le Grand Meaulnes was first published in 1913 and Miracles in 1924 both in France.  Unread.

SYNOPSIS:  “Le Grand Meaulnes is a story of the end of youth, with its sense of wonder and idealism, and the transition to adulthood and experience.  In a story which exquisitely blends realism with a hint of fantasy, Augustin Meaulnes is haunted by the memory of a beautiful girl briefly encountered in a fantastic ‘domain’. However, Meaulnes finds himself unable to return there both physically and emotionally.

An acknowledged modern classic, Le Grand Meaulnes is offered here in a new translation which is more sympathetic to the poetic original than previous editions.  In addition, the first English translation is made available of Miracles, a collection of poetry and prose first published in 1924.”
