Moliere and the French Revolution

I am requesting an NEH fellowship to support a twelve-month leave to prepare my book manuscript for publication. "Molière and the French Revolution" explores a key moment in the history of the reception of France's premier seventeenth-century comic playwright. It investigates the processes of revalorization by which Molière gained his eminent status in French cultural history, providing greater understanding of how a nation's cultural inheritance survives changing political and social landscapes.
