A Festschrift to celebrate the contribution to French studies of Rick Caldicott, Professor Emeritus of French at University College Dublin. Caldicott is best known for his work on the seventeenth century, especially theatre, but his other interests such as twentieth-century literature are also included in this warm tribute from a large number of scholars of French working in Ireland and abroad. The book is arranged in five sections: the French stage; Theatricality in the text; Staging politics and ideas in writing; Representing ’other’ cultures; and, Foregrounding Franco-Irish relations.
