Product description

Review

«This book by William Brooks is a major contribution to the history of seventeenth-century French theatre and it should be acquired by all research libraries.» (Edmund J. Campion, The European Legacy)
«This much-needed study blows away the critical cobwebs and the oft-repeated errors and clichés (...).» (C.J. Gossip, New Zealand Journal of French Studies)
«Très bien documenté, le livre de William Brooks est incontestablement appelé à remplacer l’étude d’Etienne Gros et à devenir le nouvel ouvrage de référence sur le sujet.» (Stella Spriet, H-France Review)
