An Introduction To The French Classical Drama (1912)

📖 Contains French terminology and literary fragments in French

ℹ️ "This book may be used with profit by high-school and college students of French Classical tragedy. Its author has read Corneille and Racine with sympathy and understanding, profiting in her treatment of them by an intelligent use of Lanson, Bergson, Paul Janet, Butcher, and other modern writers. She has put her results in a style that is usually clear and interesting, and has avoided entangling her readers in cumbersome details of biographies and plots. It is unfortunate that she has added her hurried chapters on Molière, which show numerous errors in fact and idea. Special students of the period will find in the book little that is new. They will note both lack of acquaintance with minor Seventeenth Century dramatists and a tendency to put too much faith in critics of doubtful authority. But, if the volume is used with care, it will, I believe, be helpful in presenting to a class the essential values of French tragedy." (Henry Carrington Lancaster, Modern Language Notes, 11/1913)

Dramatic Theory And Practice In France: 1690–1808 (1921)

📖 Contains French terminology and literary fragments in French

ℹ️ "This book, begun in 1914 as a series of lectures, was put aside owing to the pressure of other work till the present year. It attempts to trace the development of comedie, tragedie, and drame in France in the eighteenth century, and thus to define the relation between the dramatic art of the seventeenth and that of the nineteenth century.

It will be seen that during the period from 1690 onwards drame gradually superseded classical comedy and tragedy, and that when these two genres revived toward the end of the century, they were both tinctured with the manner of the drame serieux. During the years of Revolution, serious drama took on a political colour, while the Napoleonic wars were fatal for the time to any new inspiration. The drama of the Romantic movement, together with the theories that accompanied that movement, will be seen to have had their roots in the dramatic experiments of the eighteenth century.

I've been thinking about adopting "The Adventure" since I've come across the text. Probably won't do it, though.

If someone is interested in paranormal and is OK with lots of French, go for it :thumbs:
[Eleanor Jourdain] rose to fame following a claim that she and a fellow teacher, Charlotte Anne Moberly, had slipped back in time to the period of the French Revolution while on a trip to Versailles, known as the Moberly–Jourdain incident. She and Moberly wrote ["The Adventure"] together about the experience. The book was published pseudonymously; their identity was not revealed until the mid-1920s, after Jourdain's death. The book was a best seller but attracted much criticism
