Medieval France, a companion to French studies by Arthur Augustus Tilley( Book )

"The aim of this volume is to present to the reader within a moderate compass a survey of the history (political, military, naval, economic), language, literature, and art of Medieval France. An initial chapter on geography serves as a setting both for this and for the companion volume on Modern France. The volume is the work of ten writers, of whom, as was inevitable, a considerable majority are Frenchmen. To the ready and generous cooperation of these latter special thanks are due, particularly to M. Langlois, to whom the heaviest task has fallen. In his chapter on the political history of France the reader may trace the gradual development of the monarchy from Hugh Capet, who had practically no power outside his own province of the Ile-de-France and the neighbouring districts, to Charles VII, of whom, while still a boy, Philippe de Commines declared that he was "more feared and better obeyed and served by his subjects than any other prince on the earth." He said this with reference to the meeting of the States-General at Tours in 1484, which, representing, as it did, every province except Brittany, gave a signal proof of that unity which has ever since been France's greatest strength. Another feature, besides the growth of monarchy and national unity, which cannot fail to impress itself on the reader of M. Langlois's chapter is the marvellous recuperative power shown by France after the Hundred Years' War."

Molière by Arthur Augustus Tilley( Book )

30 editions published between 1921 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1921, this volume analyses the life and works of the celebrated French dramatist Molière. The emphasis is on providing the reader with an understanding of the playwright's characteristic genius, with particular concentration on the common sense attributes that gave his comedy universal appeal. This approach is also seen as the driving force behind the moral perspective of the plays as, rather than engaging with lofty sentiments reserved for the few, Molière takes the viewpoint of those involved in the human community when describing them. Beginning with the known facts about his life, the text then moves through his works, providing a detailed and rigorous examination of each area. This is a highly readable study that will be of value to anyone with an interest in drama, French literature, and the history of literary criticism."--Publisher's description
