Description

Excerpt from Les Memoires de Saint-Simon: Extraits Pas de genre plus francais que celui des Memoires. Des l'origine de notre litterature nous le trouvons cultive. L'histoire sous sa forme la plus simple est chez nous contemporaine, ou peu s'en faut, des pre mieres chansons de geste. On lit toujours Villehar douin, encore qu'un peu sec, et Joinville, encore qu'un peu diffus, 'mais si sinceres tous deux et don nant l'impression si vivante de ce qu'ils ont vu. On lit surtout les narrations deja savantes, et gracieuses toujours, de Froissart et de Commines, et, plus pres de nous, Montluc, Brantome, d'aubigne, le cardinal de Retz. Le dix - neuvieme siecle peut citer les Me moires de Mme de Remusat, ceux de M. Guizot. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
