The Liberté readers were prepared specially for use in the multidisciplinary course Liberté: France’s Impact on the Nineteenth Century, led by Olchar Lindsann & Brian Counihan at Community High School in Roanoke, Virginia. Comprised entirely of texts available in the public domain, the readers are intended to present an introduction to the dramatic and hotly-contested progress of French society as it entered, and helped to create, the modern age, bringing together together artifacts and texts from the domains of politics, literature, history, philosophy, and art that attempt to indicate not only the dominant trends in French society, but also those underground counter-currents which have always existed within and against it.While intending a fully-rounded evocation of French history, politics, economics and social thought during the century, their most important role from the perspective of the mOnocle-Lash Community is their integration of a history of the French avant-garde from the first use of the term in 1827 through the Symbolists, and particularly extensive research and translations appearing here for the first time. Read from this perspective, the series presents, albeit only impressionistically, the first comprehensive treatment in English of the development of the avant-garde between 1827–1900.Published in conjunction with Community High School. The Liberté books must be purchased through the Lulu website; sorry for the inconvenience.Vol. II begins with the July Revolution and traces the twin development of Capitalist hegemony on the one hand, and culturally and politically dissident subcultures on the other hand, bringing us to the eve of the 1848 Revolution. This volume incorporates a great deal of original research, presenting a vertible alternate history of French culture from 1830-45. It offers the most diverse array of texts available in English from the Romanticist avant-garde, particularly the Bouzingo or Jeunes-France group, including many poems and statements published here for the first time in English–more than 250 pages of French Romanticist poetry, fiction, manifestos, and memoirs, embedded within their broader historical context.Includes passages from Théophile Gautier, Petrus Borel, Aloysius Bertrand, Victor Hugo, Philothée O’Neddy, Auguste Barbier, Gérard de Nerval, Honoré de Balzac, Elisa Mercoeur, Joseph Bouchardy, Eugène Sue, Marceline Debordes-Valmore, Louis Boulanger, Alfred de Musset, Alphonse Brot, Antoni Deschamps, George Sand, Auguste Macquet, Alexandre Dumas, Gustave Flaubert, Alphonse Lamartine, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Charles Fourier, Friedrich Engels, King Louis XVIII, François Guizot, Jean-Pierre Béranger, Prosper Lissagaray, Charles Baudelaire, Karl Marx, Nicolas Boileau, Arthur Symmons, Arthur James Booth, Caroline H. Dall, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Robert Sherard, and Stendhal.
