April 17, 2019

Dr. Elisabeth Christine Muelsch, Professor of French, has a new article “Le journal d’une femme de chambre et le journal d’une concierge. Sur la reception de Célestine et de Renée Michel aux États-Unis” published in the Cahiers Octave Mirbeau Nr. 26.

Octave Mirbeau Bookcover

The article focuses on the various cinematic adaptations of the Octave Mirbeau novel Le Journal d’une femme de chambre (Diary of a Chambermaid) and their reception in the United States. The American reception of these films is then contrasted with the cinematic adaptation of Muriel Barbery’s novel L’Élégance du hérisson (The Elegance of the Hedgehog) that was hugely successful in the USA.
