About: The latest volume of the Yale French Studies Series reexamines the vexed relationship between the theater and contemporary conceptions of morality in seventeenth-century France Although the Catholic Church condemned the power of plays to stir up compelling and irresistible passions, theater flourished in seventeenth-century France, making it the era’s archetypal guilty pleasure.
