The Disperata, from Medieval Italy to Renaissance France

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.
