French Seventeenth-Century Literature. Influences and Transformations free pdf This volume of essays explores influences from Antiquity onwards that shaped the literary and cultural output of the French seventeenth century and the developments to which this period - the so-called 'classical' period - gave rise in later centuries. The thirteen essays in English and French cover three major areas: the continuation in French seventeenth-century literature and cultural events of themes found in previous centuries- internal changes within the body of writings by French seventeenth-century playwrights- the influence of seventeenth-century French writers on later centuries. The collection celebrates the life and scholarly achievements of the eminent dix-septiemiste Christopher J. Gossip, Emeritus Professor of French, University of New England, Australia.
