More than 4 weeks availability
In 1664, Moliere's Tartuffe was banned from public performance. This book provides a detailed, in-depth account of five-year struggle (1664-69) to have the ban lifted and, so doing, sheds important new light on 1660s France and the ancien regime more broadly.
Julia Prest is Senior Lecturer in the Department of French at the University of St Andrews, UK.
