Summary
Henri Peyre (1901-1988), a giant figure in French studies, did more to introduce Americans to the modern literature and culture of France than any other person. Sterling Professor and chair of the French Department of Yale University for more than four decades, Peyre was also the author or editor of forty-four books, a brilliant speaker, and a mentor to two generations of students. He left enormous legacies as both teacher and scholar. Peyre also left a large and fascinating body of correspondence. This collection of his letters documents the era in which he lived. His lively letters also bear witness to the vast network of his friends and colleagues, including such major post-war literary figures as Robert Penn Warren, Andre Gide, and Andre Malraux
