Synopsis: Pascal began in the seventeenth century a quest that Simone Weil continued in the twentieth: searching and «waiting» (as Simone Weil put it) for God. For each of them it was both a personal and a public quest. In reaching into their own experience, they felt the need to reach out to that of others. This book is about that quest, both private and public, and the concerns which ensued from it: audience (who are they writing for?), intention (why are they writing?), and rhetoric (how are they writing what they have to say?).
About the Author: The Author: Thomas Stokes holds a Ph.D. in French Literature from the University of Arizona, Tucson, and teaches in the Department of Modern Languages at Wabash College. His scholarly interests center on the French «moraliste» tradition.
