"The history of literature is, of course, strewn with the neglected, the misunderstood, the forgotten, the never fully realized, and minor figures more influential than renowned. If one were to draw a Venn diagram comprised of each of these categories, Marcel Schwob, along with a handful of others, would be at the heart of their intersections. But how, one despairs, can a man praised so highly during his own life fall completely by the wayside posthumously, as if it was his vitality alone that kept him from obscurity?"
Wakefield Press is bringing out some Schwob, starting with The Book of Monelle, hallelujah.
Probably coming soon to Writers No One Reads: Fleur Jaeggy herself.
