Beschreibung

Looks at the ways sports and games are metaphorically used to defend and subvert, to praise and mock both class and political power structures in nineteenth-century France. This book examines what shaped these games of the nineteenth-century and how they appeared as allegory in French literature, newspapers, historical studies, and game manuals.

Portrait

Corry Cropper is an associate professor of French studies at Brigham Young University and the author of several articles published in "Nineteenth-Century French Studies," the "French Review," and "French Literature Series."
