The Cambridge companion to Voltaire by Nicholas Cronk( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a leading thinker of the European Enlightenment, Voltaire is a central figure in France's collective cultural memory. The popularity of Candide has made him perhaps best known as a writer of tales. Yet these represent only a fraction of his entire œuvre. Voltaire created a style of authorship which made him the most famous writer in Europe and turned his name into a brand for a certain style of writing and thinking. This Companion covers his plays, fiction, pamphlets, correspondence, biblical criticism, and historical, political and philosophical thought, to give a wide-ranging view of his writings. The most comprehensive book on Voltaire available in English, it makes accessible the most recent research in France as well as the English-speaking world, in a series of original essays and a guide to sources. The essays demonstrate why Voltaire remains an essential point of reference in defining the modern intellectual today."--Publisher description
Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rostand's hero has become a figure of theatrical legend: Cyrano, with the nose of a clown and the soul of a poet, is by turns comic and sad, as reckless in love as in war, and never at a loss for words. Audiences immediately took him to their hearts, and since the triumphant opening night in December 1897 - at the height of the Dreyfus Affair - the play has never lost its appeal. Christopher Fry's acclaimed translation into 'chiming couplets' represents the homage of one versedramatist to another. - Tonight when I make my sweeping bow at heaven's gate, one thing I shall still possess, at any

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Diderot's dialogue begins with a chance encounter in a Paris cafe between two acquaintances. Their talk ranges broadly across art, music, education, and the contemporary scene, as the nephew of composer Rameau, amoral and bohemian, alternately shocks and amuses the moral, bourgeois figure of his interlocutor. The dialogue exposes the corruption of society in Diderot's characteristic philosophical exploration." "The debates of the French Enlightenment speak to us in this new translation, which also includes the First Satire, a related work that provides the context for Rameau's Nephew, Diderot's 'second satire'."--Jacket

Voltaire : a very short introduction by Nicholas Cronk( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LITERARY STUDIES: C 1500 TO C 1800. Voltaire (1694-1778), best remembered as the author of Candide, is one of the central actors - arguably the defining personality - of the European Enlightenment. In this Very Short Introduction, Nicholas Cronk explores Voltaire's remarkable career and demonstrates how his thinking is pivotal to our notion and understanding of the Enlightenment. In a fresh and modern examination of his writings, Cronk examines the nature of Voltaire's literary celebrity, demonstrating the extent to which his work was reactive and practical, and therefore made sense within the broader context of the debates to which he responded. The most famous living author in Europe in the 18th century, Cronk emphasises Voltaire's skills of 'performance' as a writer and his continued relevance today. He concludes by looking not only at Voltaire's impact in literature and philosophy, but also his influence on French political values and modern French politics
