Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean-Fran ois de La Harpe (November 20, 1739 - February 11, 1803) was a French playwright, writer and critic. La Harpe was born in Paris of poor parents. His father, who signed himself Delharpe, was a descendant of a noble family originally of Vaud. Left an orphan at the age of nine, La Harpe was taken care of for six months by the Sisters of Charity, and his education was provided for by a scholarship at the Coll ge d'Harcourt, now known as the Lyc e Saint-Louis. When nineteen he was imprisoned for some months on the charge of having written a satire against his protectors at the college. He was imprisoned at For-l' v que.[1] La Harpe always denied his guilt, but this culminating misfortune of an early life spent entirely in the position of a dependent possibly had something to do with the bitterness he evinced in later life.show more
