Product Description


"In this lively and engaging study, Virginia Scott examines the careers of actresses in France from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth centuries, placing them firmly in their social and artistic context. Refreshingly, she eschews anecdotal evidence, thereby providing us, perhaps for the first time, with an unbiased and even- handed account of her subjects' lives and work, but which nonetheless explores the fascination these first celebrities have exercised on audiences and critics both then and since."
-Professor Jan Clarke, Durham University

"This engaging volume is highly recommended for scholars interested in women's history in the early modern period."
-SHARON DIANE NELL,Loyola University Maryland

Book Description

How did women become stars of the French stage in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries? Scott reveals the reality of women's lives in the theatre, examines the ways in which the stereotype of the actress developed, and uncovers the invaluable contributions made by actresses to the development of French theatre.
