L’Art de Régner is a tragi-comedy by Gillet de La Tessonerie, first published in 1645. It is unusual in that structurally each of its five acts is a separate playlet. The sub-title, Le Sage Gouverneur, refers to the role of a royal tutor, probably meant to be the duc de Bassompierre, to whom the play is dedicated.

Dynamis


Rohou interprets Dynamis as an orthodox tragi-comedy that reflects both the political concerns of the late 1640s and the developments in dramaturgy which had taken place over the previous decade or so. Rohou is most helpful in pointing out, in footnotes and a brief glossary, differences between Du Ryer's language and modern usage.
