Representing violence in France 1760-1820
Ed. Thomas Wynn
From outbursts of political violence to domestic abuse, violence was an inescapable part of daily life in eighteenth-century France. Exploring its portrayal in a range of fictional and non-fictional sources, contributors analyse violence as a rational act, the basis of (re)written history, an expression of institutional power, and, ultimately, a challenge to morality.
