* Provocative analysis of censorship in modern French literary culture Circles of Censorship examines the ideas and practice of censorship and of freedom of expression in post-revolutionary French literary culture. Focusing on the fate of the work of writers such as Flaubert and Sade, and on the Freudian-influenced attempts by the Surrealists and Tel Quel to evadecensorship, Nicholas Harrison presents a critique of the ideas on censorship which currently dominate the discourses of human rights, psychoanalysis and literary culture.
Nicholas Harrison, Research Fellow, St Catharine's College, Cambridge.
