Title: The new enfant du siècle: Joseph de Maistre as a writer

Issue Date: 2010
Citation: Armenteros, C. and Lebrun, R. A. (Eds.). (2010). The new enfant du siècle: Joseph de Maistre as a writer. St Andrews Studies in French History and Culture, no. 1. Centre for French History and Culture of the University of St Andrews.
Abstract: Joseph de Maistre's reputation as a writer is legendary. His style, unique and alive, moulded the French language anew. It sabotaged his attempts at anonymous publication and earned him, through the centuries, the praises of enemies and admirers. Yet the relationship between Maistre's thought and writing remains ill-known. This collection is the first to examine how Maistre's ideas – including his denunciation of the written word – intersected with his writing practices and personas. The essays disclose an author formed by duty and affectionate relationships, by the conventions of public combat, by an intense sense of history, and by the imperatives of Revolution.
