PREFACE

In the next pages an try is made to deliver to mild a forgotten move within the literary heritage of our personal language, and a forgotten part of the renown of Racine and Corneille. it's relatively renowned that even throughout the Elizabethan interval there have been translations of French performs, and the good fortune of Moliere and Voltaire in English costume is an outdated tale. yet so much Englishmen, even those that understand and respect Racine and Corneille of their personal tongue, might deny that they ever performed any half at the English degree. such a lot Frenchmen, even these absolutely conscious of the significance of French translations in German theatrical literature, will be stunned to profit that there has been a time whilst performs via Racine and Corneille loved the best attractiveness in London. besides the fact that, such are the evidence. The stream (it is so small an job that it scarcely merits the identify of college) has passed

completely out of sight; yet comparable to it was once, it did exist, and can't have existed with no exerting an considerable impact. This learn of the translations of Racine and the 2 Corneilles into English is, although, held strictly in the limits of its name. The impression of French drama upon the English degree is either too wide and too obscure a question to be set down in a chronological and historic manner, and too renowned to want emphasizing; however the cautious assortment and research of the concrete examples of English deference to French style during this one definite path has no longer been undertaken earlier than, and should be definitely worth the doing as furnishing a competent foundation for extra generalization.

The translations are taken care of chronologically, in all yet a couple of circumstances, as this turns out the main passable manner of arranging them. The translations of Athalie are mentioned jointly, as they're rather separated in spirit and basic consequence from the others. relatively little house is given to them, as the lifetime of the nice French tragedy writers at the English level is the true topic of this research, and the spiritual dramas have been by no means looked via English humans as degree percentages. the cause of this can be particularly visible whilst the dif-

ference within the angle of the 2 international locations towards faith is considered.

The choice of translations has been carried right down to the tip of the 1st region of the 19th century purely, as after that point the entire English types have been basically literary routines. The reason prompting the paintings had thoroughly replaced. English renderings of overseas masterpieces will be stated to be honest translations in simple terms while the reason of the translator is to guarantee that most people, analyzing no language yet English, to understand the overseas paintings in as excellent an English replica as he could make. whilst he produces his paintings without such thought, yet addresses himself to a small circle who comprehend either languages and will make comparisons, desiring to convey his dexterity in production English verse out of French, he's acting a literary journey de strength merely, and his construction has not anything in universal with the honest translation which varieties the fabric studied here.

There has been no try and acquire and classify small and unimportant thefts from the French which abound in English theatrical literature, or to set down the situations the place unmarried scenes or characters are taken from Ra-

cine and Corneille and utilized in an English environment. there's a definite curiosity in minute research of this kind, yet such use of the French used to be continually underhanded and mostly unrecognized. For a examine which makes an attempt to check the genuine lifetime of those 3 French dramatists in England such fragmentary and elusive appearances haven't any importance. accordingly such relatives as that present among Mrs. Centlivre's Love at a enterprise and Thomas Corneille's Le G-alant DouhU haven't been touched upon. The remedy of Le Men-teur is, in parts, an exception to this rule, admitted in part simply because it is a a lot ...
