Item description for The Life of J.- K. Huysmans (Dark Master Series) by Brendan King Robert Baldick...

This, a work of literature in its own right. First published fifty years ago, this classic new edition, the first time the biography has been reprinted in English, presents a compelling narrative of Huysmans's life and work in all its various phases. Written with impeccable scholarship, it remains a standard work of reference to this day. Baldick's notes have been extensively revised and updated by Brendan King to take account of new developments and publications in the field of Huysmansian studies. Like Froude's biography of Carlyle, Holroyd's Shaw, and Ellmann's Joyce, Robert Baldick's The Life of J.K. Huysmans is consulted as regularly as the writing of the author whose life it chronicles.

Baldick has produced the authorative biography which supersedes all previous ones, and which is the soundest, fullest and most scholarly in any language. -- Enid Starkie in The New Statesman

Reviews - What do customers think about The Life of J.- K. Huysmans (Dark Master Series)?

Essential for Huysmans fans  Mar 8, 2006
Even though this book was published 50 years ago, it is still a core source for anyone interested in this very important writer, particularly for those of us who don't read French. (It should be noted though that this book has also appeared in a French translation.) Baldick, who also translated at least one Huysmans novel (Against Nature), covers the entire life in clear prose, dealing with the author's faults and struggles, though also clearly sympathetic to his subject. There is an index, notes and a list of Huysmans' published works as well as some black and white illustrations. Readers should note that this book has been recently reissued in the UK, so they may want to check this
