Summary/Abstract: For a long time, Sándor Eckhardt (1890-1969) was just a name to me. To be sure, I was aware of his pivotal role as head of the French department at Budapest University. It was always clear to me, moreover, that academics of his generation, scholars in literary studies as well as historians, including Victor-Lucien Tapié, my mentor during my studies at the École Normale Supérieure and the Sorbonne, held him in great esteem. Yet I had not acquainted myself with the full scope of his scholarship, except for a few articles that I had read and, to be sure, profited from immensely. Needless to say, I wouldn’t want to suggest that I have completely familiarized myself with his work. What I have read thus far, however, has awakened and sustained my interest for a number of reasons.
