Item description for Robert Challe: sources et heritages Actes du colloque international, Leuven-Anvers, 21-22-23 mars 2002 (La Republique des Lettres) by J Cormier & J Herman...
This volume combines a series of studies dealing with the greatest French writer of the period 1680-1721-Robert Challe. Works studied are: "The Continuation of Don Quichotte" where Challe dares to measure himself against Cervantes, "The Illustrious French women" the most beautiful novel dealing with the end of the rule of Louis XIV, the "travel journal to the East Indies," the "Memoirs" interrupted in 1716, and his "Difficulties on the subject of religion" which his contemporaries attributed to the young Voltaire. These constitute an impressive collection, both by its breadth and by the variety of its approaches. It is clear from these texts that the work of Robert Challe represents a melting pot in which the most original aspects have come together of an uncertain period which witnessed to the end of the reign of Louis the Great and the emergence of the enlightenment. French text.
