Beautiful letter from Talleyrand, who does not lose praise for reading the scandalous tragedy of religious fanaticism "charles ix": "I do not know enough to thank you my dear chenier, for all the pleasure that your charles 9 has made to me. It's one of those feelings lost since voltaire. The details sparkle with beauty, and the whole is worthy of the greatest masters. You know my dear friend how much she is to me and will always be dear to me.I have to write it to you since I don't see you anymore. " Marie-joseph chenier (1764 - 1811) was born in constantinople, he was the younger brother of the andré chenier poet. He began a military career in the dragons of Montmorency. But he stops the army to orient himself in literature. The beginnings were difficult, he was booed to the representation of edgar, or the supposed page, to the French comedy in 1785. His tragedy charles ix, or the holy barthelemy, renamed a few years later charles ix, or the school of kings, was censored upon his release on October 14, 1789, because of his denunciation of the spirit of freedom in the throes of religious fanaticism.
After two years of purgatory, the first took place after the capture of the bastille on November 4, 1789, and achieved a great success, comparable to that of the marriage of figaro, in accordance with the revolutionary ideals of the moment. Camille desmoulins claimed that charles ix had done more for the revolution than the days of October 1789, which led to the definitive and forced return of the louis king xvi and his family to Paris. In times of revolution, one finds only skill in boldness, and greatness only in exaggeration. This item is in the category "books, bd, magazines\old books, collection".
