Cinna by Pierre Corneille( Book )

8 editions published between 1964 and 1971 in English and French and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Corneille, on le sait maintenant, était un profond analyste de la vie et du pouvoir politiques. Il raconte ici l'échec d'une conjuration - seule forme d'opposition sous la dictature - et le pardon qui la suit. Sous l'intrigue apparente, et historique, il a voulu montrer le drame du pouvoir vieillissant, de l'opposition impuissante, des individus dépassés par des forces qui les écrasent. Cette tragédie n'a donc rien perdu de sa puissance, ni de son actualité. "--Résumé de l'éditeur
La Rochefoucauld, Maximes et refléxions diverses by Derek A Watts( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ethics and politics in seventeenth-century France by Keith Cameron( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thought-provoking book deconstructs the ethical and political framework supporting and circumscribing the actions of a powerful elite in France between the early 1600s and the final years of Louis XIV's reign. It contains major essays on Richelieu, Retz, La Rochefoucauld, Conde, Fouquet and a range of dramatists. Leading British and French specialists offer a radical reassessment of the absolute values on which was founded the authority of the established church and the King. Discussion of the twin themes of the book is divided into two parts, in acknowledgment of the equal importance accorded in this study to the fact of history and to the virtual reality of dramatic representation
