La lyre, la plume et le temps
This comparison of 10 Bildungsromane (novels of formation) in German and French from the mid 19th century to the present is motivated by a dual interest.

The study examines works such as George Sand's 'Consuelo', Romain Rolland's 'Jean-Christophe', Thomas Mann's 'Doktor Faustus' and Thomas Bernhard's 'Der Untergeher' with a view to delineating and providing a synthesis of the evolution and specific features of the 'musical Bildungsroman' , notably pointing up the analogies between musical and literary structures discernible in them.
