About this product
- DescriptionThis is a rich collection of essays on French comic drama of the period from the renewal of comic drama in the 1640s to the eve of the French Revolution. The book offers exciting new studies of individual works and authors, while giving full consideration to broader issues. Major authors (such as Moliere, Marivaux and Beaumarchais) are treated alongside authors who, while famous in their day and instrumental in the development of the genre, have lesser reputations today. The collection reveals the continuities, variations and new departures in the diverse comic traditions of the period in the different Paris theatres, including both the officially recognised Comedie-Francaise and Comedie-Italienne and the independent commercial Fair companies.
- Author BiographyThe Editors: Derek Connon studied French at the University of Liverpool, where he wrote a Ph.D. thesis on the theatrical works of Diderot. He is now Senior Lecturer in French at the University of Wales Swansea. George Evans studied French at the University of Wales Swansea where he has recently retired as Senior Lecturer in French.
