La Bibliothèque de la Pléiade

La Bibliothèque de la Pléiade is a French series of books intended to be definitive editions of the complete works of the best writers over the centuries. It has been published since 1931 with around a dozen new authors added each year.  The first authors published by la Pléiade were Charles Baudelaire, Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, Alfred de MussetEdgar Allan PoeJean Racine, Stendhal, and Voltaire. Only a handful of authors—René CharPaul ClaudelAndré GideJulien GracqJulien GreenEugène IonescoClaude Lévi-StraussAndré Malraux,Roger Martin du GardHenry de MontherlantNathalie SarrauteSaint-John Perse et Marguerite Yourcenar—have been published during their lifetime.

How It's Used

“Reviving some extremely rare works in fully restored versions, presenting critical editions of the major titles (in three instances, complete with alternate cuts) and reintroducing several overlooked masterworks, 'Ford at Fox' finally does for a filmmaker what the Bibliothèque de la Pléiade in France and our homegrown Library of America have long done for writers. Scattered, individual films have been recast into a body of work—an oeuvre—easily accessible for the first time.”

Dave Kehr, “Respect in a Box: Giving John Ford the Major American Artist Treatment,” The New York Times, December 4, 2007.
