Tragedy and Nation in the Age of Napoleon

Clare Siviter

Voltaire Foundation in association with Liverpool University Press

Oxford University Studies in The Enlightenment

  • This is the first monograph focused on tragedy in the age of Napoleon
  • This study offers an exciting new perspective on the Napoleonic state and how it attempted to use theatre to reunite the nation after the Revolution
  • This study uses rare sources from a collection of French and European archives, many of which have never been studied before. This monograph sheds new light on the transition from classicism to romanticism in French theatre
  • This volume revisits established claims about Napoleonic propaganda and censorship, showing there to be much more flexibility than currently believed
