A field of honor : writers, court culture and public theater in French literary life from Racine to the Revolution by Gregory S Brown( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregory S. Brown's A Field of Honor: Writers, Court Culture and Public Theater in French Literary Life from Racine to the Revolution offers a multilevel study of the intellectual, social, and institutional contexts of dramatic authorship and the world of playwrights in 18th-century Paris. Brown deftly interweaves research in archival and printed materials, case studies of individual authorial strategies, the rich, often contentious historiography on the French Enlightenment and contemporary cultural theory and criticism. Drawing on a sophisticated array of recent studies, Brown positions his work against and between the grain of alternative approaches and interpretations. He combines scholarship on the history of the book with analyses of political culture and cultural identity, leaving the reader with a strong and revealing appreciation for the tensions and crosscurrents staged at the center of the 18th-century "republic of letters."
