Laurence Sterne in France

The early reception of Laurence Sterne in France was vociferous and controversial, reflecting a period of literary and social upheaval. Alongside original readings of Sterne and of his interpreters, such as Voltaire, Diderot, Suard, and Julie de Lespinasse, this monograph offers a re-examination of eighteenth-century French culture, its aesthetic debates and Anglo-French literary relations. Drawing on contemporary reception theory, Lana Asfour pays close attention to the criticism, translations and imitations of Sterne's work, and looks at key points at which it was read against eighteenth-century French expectations derived from the roman comique, picaresque, satirical and sentimental traditions.
