A travers une etude bibliographique tres approfondie de l'oeuvre d'Erckmann-Chatrian et de ses critiques, ce livre examine l'influence des deux auteurs a un moment crucial de l'histoire des Etats-Unis et de l'Angleterre. Par leurs idees liberales et pacifistes, ils se sont rallie une majorite de lecteurs de tous les milieux sociaux et ethniques. Leur talent de conteur et d'historien, leur style vivant et limpide les ont rendus populaires dans les ecoles. Parce qu'ils exprimerent avec beaucoup de sensibilite les conflits issus de leur dualite franco-allemande, les emigres alsaciens et allemands se sont identifies a eux. Au theatre, leur Juif polonais est devenu, avec l'aide de Henry Irving, le plus grand melodrame de l'epoque victorienne et, a l'opera, leur Ami Fritz inspira brillamment Mascagni. Alors qu'aujourd'hui on redonne a la Statue de la Liberte le lustre qu'elle merite, il est bon de se repencher sur les oeuvres de ces deux auteurs, eux-memes amis de Bartholdi, qui ont contribue a unir, par leur idealisme et leur grande integrite artistique, nos deux continents.
