Dialogues Révolutionnaires is an edition of twelve fictional dialogues of the Revolutionary period in which the various interlocuters try to come to terms with an evolving political reality and a language which is constantly developing. The dialogues will interest cultural historians wishing to have access to rare texts in which political satire and contemporary debate are always apparent. It will further interest specialists of the French language who wish to see how fictional texts attempt to incorporate the evolution of the language during the crisis. The texts themselves are lively and comic, offering a fantastic insight into the lives of ordinary people during the Revolution.
