Manners, customs, and dress during the middle ages and during the renaissance period by P. L Jacob( Book )

28 editions published between 1874 and 2013 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art must be the faithful expression of a society, since it represents it by its works as it has created them -- undeniable witnesses of its spirit and manners for future generations. But it must be acknowledged that art is only the consequence of the ideas which it expresses; it is the fruit of civilization, not its origin. To understand the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it is necessary to go back to the source of its art, and to know the life of our fathers; these are two inseparable things, which entwine one another, and become complete one by the other. - Preface

In the fictional actress Olympe, Dumas created one of his most vividly realized and "modern" female characters, a woman of personal integrity and independent means who can live and love as she sees fit. In the words of the Duc de Richelieu, "These infernal theatrical women, when they have once lowered themselves, are unmanageable. Ah! the woman who emancipates herself is worth ten men; but she has treated you badly, my poor friend."
