    schema:reviewBody ""It has often been assumed that the difficulty of translating Shakespeare into French has meant that he has had little impact in France. Shakespeare Goes to Paris proves the opposite. Virtually unknown in France in his lifetime, and for well over a hundred years after his death, Shakespeare was discovered in the first half of the eighteenth century, as part of a French growing interest in England. Since then, Shakespeare's presence in France has been inescapable. Writers, from Voltaire to Gide, found themselves baffled, frustrated, mesmerised but overawed by a playwright who broke all the rules of French classical theatre and challenged the primacy of French culture. Attempts to tame and translate him alternated with uncritical idolisation, such as that of Berlioz and Hugo. Changing attitudes to Shakespeare have also been an index of French self esteem, as John Pemble shows in this book."--Jacket." ;
