A propos de cet article

"Chambellan de l'impératrice Catherine II. Depuis 1774 jusqu'en 1789." [4], 400 pages, full contemporary calf, very good. Volume 3 only. From the Wikipedia website: "Jean-François de La Harpe (November 20, 1739 - February 11, 1803) was a French playwright, writer and critic. ~ In 1768, he returned from Ferney to Paris, where he began to write for the Mercure de France. He was a born fighter and had little mercy on the authors whose work he handled. But he was himself violently attacked, and suffered under many epigrams, especially those of Lebrun-Pindare. ~ Eventually La Harpe was compelled to resign from the Mercure, which he had edited from 1770. On the stage he produced Les Barmecides (1778) , Philoctete, Jeanne de Naples (1781) , Les Brames (1783) , Coriolan (1784) , Virginie (1786). In 1786, he began delivering a course of literature at the newly-established Lycée. In these lectures, published as the Cours de littérature ancienne et moderne, La Harpe is considered to have been at his best, finding a standpoint more or less independent of contemporary polemics. ~ La Harpe was a disciple of the "philosophes", supporting their extreme party through the excesses of 1792 and 1793. In 1793, he returned to edit the Mercure de France, which blindly adhered to the revolutionary leaders. Nonetheless, in April 1794, La Harpe was seized as a "suspect". In prison he underwent a spiritual crisis which he described in convincing language, emerging an ardent Catholic and a political reactionary. When he resumed his chair at the Lycée, he attacked his former friends in politics and literature. He was sufficiently imprudent to begin the publication of his 1774-1791 Correspondance littéraire in 1801 with the grand-duke (and later emperor) Paul of Russia. In these letters he surpassed the brutalities of the Mercure." ; 400 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 28490
