Beschreibung

On Tuesday, October 12, 1954, Pierre Vernier, a teacher in a Paris lyc?e, begins setting down an account that is to be a complete record of the life lived by himself, his students, and his fellow teachers. He begins by meticulously recording what he already knows of his students, their relationships to one another, and the books they're studying. Then he's forced to enlist his nephew--who's in his class--to report on the private lives of the other boys. To record all reality, he must know all that has passed, is passing, and will pass through his pupils' minds. Degrees is an extraordinary novel exposing one man's obsessive project, the impossibility of its completion, and the damaging effect this obsession has on both Vernier and those who surround him.

Michel Butor (1926) est l'auteur d'une oeuvre considerable de plus de six cents livres, parmi lesquels des romans, notamment"La Modification"(prix Renaudot, 1957), des recueil de poesies, dont le fameux "Travaux d'approche"(1972), de nombreux essais, comme"Improvisations sur Flaubert"(1989) et"Improvisations sur Rimbaud" (1989). Il est le dernier grand representant de l'ecole du Nouveau Roman.

Brassai (born Gyula Halasz, 1899-1984) was a photographer, journalist, and author of photographic monographs and literary works, including "Letters to My Parents" and "Conversations with Picasso," both published by the University of Chicago Press.
