For these and other achievements, Colette was named a member of the Belgian Royal Academy and the French Legion of Honor.

Hermsprong; Or Man As He Is Not

Broadview Literary Texts. As New. 2002. Paperback. 1551112795 . An As New Trade Paperback, glossy covers, bright & unmarked pages with very moderate cover wear.

The protagonist, a European raised among Native Americans, visits Europe and is dismayed by what he encounters. While such satire might seem conventional enough, Hermsprong is distinguished from other political novels of the period by its comedy, and it is a measure of Bage's success that he won the admiration of writers as different in political outlook as Mary Wollstonecraft and Sir Walter Scott.
