From Barbarism to Universality

Language and Identity in Early Modern France

Christopher Coski (author)

ISBN: 9781611170368

Publication Date: Nov 2011

Format: Hardback

As European vernaculars emerged from the shadow of Latin in the early modern era, the French language acquired greater prestige than any other on the continent while French culture simultaneously came to exert a disproportionately large influence across national borders. This examines landmark French texts from the period to explore the literary and philosophical forces at play in a transformation of French self-perception.
