The Satiric Decade by Amy Wiese Forbes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Satiric Decade analyzes the impact on republicanism of French political satire in newspapers, theaters, street behavior, and even the academy in the 1830s. Author Amy Wiese Forbes argues that satire gave rise to the critical spirit and republicanism that erupted in the 1848 Revolution and that propelled the process by which France evolved from an absolutist monarchy to a liberal and democratic polity in the 1870s.
