Countering The Culture


This is a study of the nine prose fiction works of Christiane Rochefort written between 1958 and 1988.

Her fiction forms an approachable learning tool for all students of post-war French politics and culture.

Drame A Toulon


This play dramatises a French sailor’s protest in 1948-49 against the brutality of the French military conduct of the Indochina war. Henri Martin was imprisoned for five years for distributing pamphlets. The struggle to get him released became the ‘Henri Martin Affair’, and this play was a vital part of that struggle.

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.
