Overview

In June 2006 delegates from eight countries representing six French, US, and British-based learned societies met at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, for a conference on the French long seventeenth century entitled ‘Modernités/Modernities’. Nineteen of the best papers on theatre, fiction and poetry were selected for this volume, and they present new perspectives on novels as different as L’Astrée and Le Roman bourgeois, comedy and tragedy, actors’ practices, the ballet de cour and the burgeoning genre of opera, and a time span from Du Bellay to Mme de Gomez. The cardinal feature of this wide range of topics lies in the unifying factor of vibrant modernity.
En juin 2006 un colloque sur le thème de la modernité pendant l’âge classique a réuni à St Catherine’s College, Oxford, des spécialistes venus de huit pays pour représenter six sociétés savantes dont quatre françaises, une américaine, et une britannique. Dix-neuf communications sur le théâtre, le roman et la poésie choisies parmi les meilleures sont recueillies dans le présent volume, qui fournit de nouvelles perspectives sur des romans aussi divers que L’Astrée et Le Roman bourgeois, la comédie et la tragédie, le jeu des comédiens, le ballet de cour et le genre naissant de l’opéra, sur une période qui va de Du Bellay à Mme de Gomez. L’aspect capital de cette envergure réside dans la vitalité cohésive de la modernité.
