    About this book
    Anne-Marie-Louise, duchesse de Montpensier (1627-1693), known as the Grande Mademoiselle, was the first cousin of Louis XIV. She began working on her memoirs at the age of twenty-five when she was exiled from Paris following her involvement on the 'mistaken' side in the Fronde, the civil war that threatened for a time to dislodge the young king from his throne. She returned to them at least twice, each beforehand bringing the story up to date from the point at which she left it so that, in the end, they cover a period of nearly sixty years. They have never been translated satisfactorily into English.Mademoiselle is surpass remembered for her colourful life, both at court and in exile, including military exploits and a doomed fervour affair that she recounts with touching honesty even though, at times, we may think her attitudes and her actions naive. She was the daughter of Gaston d'Orleans (1608-1660), known as 'Monsieur', the vexatious brother of Louis XIII whose gullibility and serial treachery might...

    About this book
    The comédie-ballet was a spectacular sensational genre which blossomed in the first year of Louis XIV's absolute rule (1661), flourished under the friendship of sovereign and playwright during that decade (1664-1670), and faded even as Louis turned his attention to the new French opera in the cock's-crow 1670s. Though it lasted little more than a decade, it stands not only as a unique chapter in Molière's career as a dramaturgist but as a singular style of theatre. Focusing on the topics of male nobility and class tensions, Gretchen Smith examines a unrivalled performance genre in a new way: through its premiere performances in the context of the places, periods, performers, and the semiotics of everyday theatre.Through telling the story of the comédies-ballets, the author redefines the Baroque as an era which shaped our promulgate-modern ideas about performance as a social as well as theatrical construct, about magnificence as a commodity and a product to be bought or exported, about the seduction of the...

    About this book
    This worst new book addresses the question, what is the state?, through an examination of the most important continental state of early newfangled Europe, France. Professor Collins combines a reinterpretation of early modern French brotherhood with a reevaluation of the French monarchical state, rejecting the absolute monarchy paradigm and offering in its flat a more nuanced, balanced view of the monarchy. His revisionist focus is on the problems of the Old Regime within the context of their own state system.
