Countering The Culture


This is a study of the nine prose fiction works of Christiane Rochefort written between 1958 and 1988. Despite establishment recognition and a popular mass-market following, Christiane Rochefort has hitherto received little critical attention. Her fiction forms an approachable learning tool for all students of post-war French politics and culture.

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.
