1 Howarth, W.D. Sublime and Grotesque - A Study of French Romantic Drama
London Harrap 1975 0245526617 / 9780245526619 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from another book reference written on rear endpaper) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 445 pages. 16 illustrations. French drama of the Romantic period has long suffered from academic neglect. Both in France and abroad, scholars have been reluctant to take serious interest in this subject, with the result that there exists no thorough critical study of it as a whole. Yet the rise of Romantic drama, whatever the intrinsic merits of individual plays, marks a crucial break between Classical and Modern theatre and is of particular interest in the history of French literature. Professor Howell's book shows how French Romantic drama stemmed from the social and literary climate of the period, and was influenced by the material conditions in the thatres of the day. Its effect on the position of actors and playwrights in society, and on the staging of their plays, is fully discussed. **** NOT EX LIB ****
