Abstract:

In readings of texts by Lafayette, Molire, Laclos, and La Bruyreand in a chapter on the eighteenth-century inventor of automatons, Jacques VaucansonCatherine Liu provides a fascinating account of ways in which the automaton and the preindustrial machine haunt the imagination of ancien rgime France and structure key moments of the canonical literature and criticism of the period."Copying Machines establishes Liu's reputation in all her diverse fields as a leading thinker/writer. Liu invokes the automaton as ironic departure from the machine histories of media-technologization."--Laurence A.
