I went to the city yesterday and bought:
- The Romantic Image by Frank Kermode
- Venus’ lusthof by Leonard de Vries, includes translation of Académie des dames ou le meursius francais and other curiosa
- Fabula Rasa by Gaston Burssens
Did not buy Sarenco : le triptyque du cinéma mobile, 1983-1987: Félix Guattari, Eugenio Miccini, Luigi Serravalli and The Dark Comedy: The Development of Modern Comic Tragedy by J. L. Styan, 1968.
In its preface Kermode says he is indebted to Romantic Agony by Italian critic Mario Praz, The Romantic Soul and the Dream by Swiss critic Albert Béguin, The Mirror and the Lamp by M. H. Abrams and The Symbolist Aesthetic in France, 1885-1895 by A. G. Lehmann.
