" Salvator Rosa (1615–1673) was a colorful and controversial Italian painter, talented musician, a notable comic actor, a prolific correspondent, and a successful satirist and poet. His paintings, especially his rugged landscapes and their evocation of the sublime, appealed to Romantic writers, and his work was highly influential on several generations of European writers. James S. Patty analyzes Rosa’s tremendous influence on French writers, chiefly those of the nineteenth century, such as Stendhal, Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo, George Sand, and Théophile Gautier. Arranged in chronological order, with numerous quotations from French fiction, poetry, drama, art criticism, art history, literary history, and reference works, Salvator Rosa in French Literature forms a narrative account of the reception of Rosa’s life and work in the world of French letters. James S. Patty, professor emeritus of French at Vanderbilt University, is the author of Dürer in French Letters . He lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Née dans le Médan d'Emile Zola en pleine affaire Dreyfus, issue d'une famille d'artistes peintres désargentée, Mireille Havet fascine très jeune tous ceux qui l'approchent : elle n'a pas quinze ans quand Apollinaire publie ses premiers poèmes, et en compte dix-neuf quand paraît son récit La Maison dans l'œil du chat, préfacé par une Colette enthousiaste. Auteure en 1923 d'un roman acclamé par André Gide et René Crevel (Carnaval), Mireille Haves atteint sa maturité d'écrivain dans son extraordinaire journal intime, exhumé par miracle en 1995. Séduisant hommes et femmes par son charme androgyne et sa liberté d'esprit, elle affirme dès l'adolescence une homosexualité sans tabou, qui lui fait vivre les liaisons les plus torrides. Le goût des drogues et une pauvreté croissante précipiteront hélas la garçonne flamboyante, égérie du Paris des années folles, dans la dépression et l'impuissance. Interprète du rôle de la Mort dans l'Orphée de son ami Jean Cocteau, la " petite poyétesse " d'Apollinaire meurt tuberculeuse et oubliée, à trente-trois ans. Fulgurante, passionnée, son existence illustre de manière exemplaire la trajectoire d'une génération que le traumatisme de la Grande Guerre livra à tous les excès. Petite sœur méconnue de Raymond Radiguet, Pierre Drieu La Rochelle ou Louis Aragon, Mireille Havet eut comme seule boussole l'exaltation d'un moi qui trouva dans le sexe, la poésie, le noctambulisme et les paradis artificiels ses pistes les plus fécondes.
