Rules, Rule-Breaking, and French Neoclassicism

Episode 20 | 12m 40s | Video has closed captioning.

The French Neoclassical revival had a BUNCH of French playwrights following a bunch of rules. Unsurprisingly, some of the most interesting plays of the era broke those rules. Today, we'll talk about the rules, and we'll talk about Racine (who followed them), and Corneille (who was not so much a rules guy).
