Colleagues and former students of Sandy Petrey mark the literature scholar's retirement with essays on the areas of his specialty: realism, speech act theory, and the impact of the French Revolution on Europe and the world at large. A perusal of topics includes titles such as the present King of France is bald, Victor Hugo as realist in Notre-Dame de Paris, Andre Gorz and the philosophical foundation of the political, Sontag between America and Europe, and a note on English loan words in American Italian and Standard Italian.
