Summary "The Rock of Arles is a work of creative non-fiction where Richard Klein imagines the vast history of Arles through the mind of a rock-the Rock of Arles. The Rock of Arles has witnessed every instant of the city's rise and fall, and it tells a story sharply different from the official histories. It is more polemical, philosophical, dissident, and focused on three of the most radical revolutionary Arlesians whose lives and works have largely been forgotten: Favorinus, Kalonymus, and Antonelle"-- Provided by publisher
