Having more literary than religious vocation, the young Capuchin monk Venance Dougados was sent on a fund-raising tour in 1786 among the peasants and gentry of the Monts de Lacaune in southern France. He came back with a remarkable work, La Quête du Blé, in verse and prose. The work was original, humorous, with pre-romantic undertones; it brought him much success, but at the same time it aroused the anger of his superiors. Rémy Cazals provides a critical edition of this little-known text accompanied by a biography of its author, who became inflamed by the passions of the Revolution, and who was guillotined in 1794.

This title is Volume 101 in the series Exeter French Texts/Textes littéraires. It incldues an introduction and essential notes, all in French.

Rémy Cazals is Lecturer in History at the Université de Toulouse-Le Mirail.
