Les Dégoûts de Voltaire: exploration d’une sensibilité complexe

Cover of OSE volume just published Marie-Hélène Cotoni L’auteur évalue la diversité des dégoûts de Voltaire, dans ses rapports au monde et à soi-même, selon les situations qui les ont provoqués. M.-H. Cotoni trace la frontière entre impressions réellement éprouvées et expression, afin de mesurer, autant que possible, la sincérité de l’homme tout comme l’habileté de l’écrivain.

Coming soon
