Scholarly Commentary


Essentially a work of biography and biographical criticism, Mégroz's volume emphasizes the intersections of DGR's life and work. As the author puts it in his introduction, “his life and works are reflections of each other, and both are reflections of an extraordinarily fixed personality.” (vii). Mégroz prints two stanzas of DGR's early poem on Napoleon, entitled “The End of It”, which was written June 18, 1845. Mégroz takes his text from Wise'sCatalogue of the Ashley Library (1922).
