Über diesen Titel


In this study Professor Werner offers a brilliant rereading of Diderot's masterpiece. He argues that Diderot frees irony from the badinage and contradictions of Candide--thereby modernizing philosophical satire through an original blend of Socratic dialogue and the comic style of the Italian opera buffa. In this manner Diderot brings about a profound (and highly modern) change in literary form and narrative technique. This study is a significant critical anlysis of romantic and comic irony in 18th-century prose.

About the Author:

Stephen Werner is Professor of French at UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles). He is the author of Diderot's Great Scroll: Narrative Art in 'Jacques le fataliste' (Voltaire Foundation, 1975) and many other publications on issues that deal with comic irony and narrative techniques in both 18th-century and modern French fiction.
