The History of French Literature free pdf Excerpt from The History of French Literature: From the Oath of Strasburg to Chanticler With the conquest of Gaul by Caesar(58-51 B. C.) there began an intricate process of evolution which, continuing for more than nine centuries, finally gave birth to a French language and literature. The humble Sequence of St. Eulalie - fragment of a Latin church chant - and the historical Oath of Strasburg, sworn in French by Louis the Germanic to make it intelligible to the Franks of Charles the Bald, are but the embryo of what that language and literature came to be. But at the end of the tenth century, when the Capetian dynasty began to establish its sway and to consummate French unity, there arose a French national life, and with it a genuine national language and literature. In France, as elsewhere, poetry preceded prose in the infancy of letters- and we see those poetic beginnings in a brief composition on the Passion of Christ, and in the three hundred verses of the Life of St. Leger, the earliest regularly versified document in French. Our own taste does not find much to admire in this Life. Yet in its meager thread of narration, in its simple, dry precision - like to that of a bare chronicle we perceive the earliest strivings of that intense creative power which has produced French literature, and has by no means exhausted itself in a thousand pregnant years of production.
