Arthur Tilley (1851-1942) was a British linguist and historian specialising in the literature of the French Renaissance. He was a Fellow of Kings's College, Cambridge, and was appointed Lecturer in French in 1896. This edited volume, first published in 1922, provides an overview of changes in French society between 987 and 1500. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of that society and was written by a specialist in the field. The architecture, literature, industries and commerce, and political and military history of medieval France are discussed in detail; shorter chapters deal with more specialist topics, such as the evolution of the French language and developments in sculpture during this period. This arrangement allows for a depth of discussion and detail on these topics, providing a comprehensive review of medieval French culture and society

"First published in 1921, this volume analyses the life and works of the celebrated French dramatist Molière. The emphasis is on providing the reader with an understanding of the playwright's characteristic genius, with particular concentration on the common sense attributes that gave his comedy universal appeal. This approach is also seen as the driving force behind the moral perspective of the plays as, rather than engaging with lofty sentiments reserved for the few, Molière takes the viewpoint of those involved in the human community when describing them. Beginning with the known facts about his life, the text then moves through his works, providing a detailed and rigorous examination of each area. This is a highly readable study that will be of value to anyone with an interest in drama, French literature, and the history of literary criticism."--Publisher's description
