Title: Libertin! - Usage d'une invective aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles
Edited By: Thomas Berns
Anne Staquet
Monique Weis
URL: http://www.classiques-garnier.com/editions/
Description:

Ce livre étudie de manière transversale les multiples usages attestés du terme «libertin» chez les auteurs du début de l'époque moderne, rendant ainsi manifeste la diversité des emplois et déplacements d'une invective, qu'il s'agisse de stigmatiser, de s'en revendiquer, ou de s'en protéger.

This book conducts an interdisciplinary investigation into the multiple uses of the term libertin amongst authors at the beginning of the modern period. In doing so, it reveals the diverse uses of the word, and the way in which its function as an insult shifts: at times used to stigmatise and at others to assert an identity or as self-protection.
