Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dominique Bouhours (15 May 1628, Paris, France - 27 May 1702, Paris) was a French Jesuit priest, essayist and neo-classical critic. Bouhours entered the Society of Jesus at the age of sixteen, and was appointed to read lectures on literature in the Coll ge de Clermont at Paris, and on rhetoric at Tours and Rouen. He afterwards became private tutor to the two sons of Henri II d'Orl ans, duc de Longueville. He was sent to Dunkirk to the Romanist refugees from the Commonwealth of England, and in the midst of his missionary occupations published several books. In 1665 or 1666 he returned to Paris, and published in 1671 Les Entretiens d'Ariste et d'Eug ne, which was reprinted four more times at Paris, twice at Grenoble, and afterwards at Lyon, Brussels, Amsterdam, Leiden and other cities. The work consists of six conversations (entretiens) between two companionable friends whose Greek- and Latin-derived names both mean "well-born."
