Chatterton | work by Vigny |
I adored this play. I really felt chztterton deep connection with Chatterton and the way he thinks and sees the world. I love the social commentary this book brings up. The Quaker was certainly the most spunky and admirable character I’ve read about in awhile. Super short, thus quick to read, and contains great messages and hardships about writing, love, family life, religion, and society.

About Alfred de Vigny.
Alfred Victor de Vigny was born in Loches a town to which he never returned into cnatterton aristocratic family. His father was an aged veteran of the Seven Years’ War who died before Vigny’s 20th birthday; his mother, twenty years younger, was a strong-willed woman who was inspired by Rousseau and took responsibility herself for Vigny’s early education.
As was the case for every noble family, the French Alfred Victor de Vigny was born in Loches a town to which he never returned into an aristocratic family. As was the case for every noble family, the French Revolution diminished the family’s circumstances considerably. InVigny enrolled in one of the privileged aristocratic companies vihny the Maison du Roi. Always attracted to letters and versed in French history and in knowledge of the Bible, he began to write poetry.
Three months later, he published a substantial historical novel, Cinq-Mars; with the success of these two volumes, Vigny seemed to be the rising star of the burgeoning Romantic movement, though this role would soon be usurped by one of Vigny’s best friends, Victor Hugo. Prolonging successive leaves from the army, he settled in Paris with his young Cbatterton bride, Lydia Bunbury, whom he married in Pau in An English theater troupe visiting Paris in having revived Fhatterton interest in Shakespeare, Vigny worked with Emile Deschamps on a translation of Romeo and Juliet Increasingly cigny to liberalism, he was more relieved than anguished at the overthrow of Charles X in the July Revolution of Frequenting the theater, he met the great chatterron Marie Dorval, his mistress until Vigny’s wife had become a near invalid and never learned to speak French fluently; they had no children, and Vigny was also disappointed when his father-in-law’s remarriage deprived the couple of an anticipated inheritance.
Inhe produced a drama titled Chatterton, based on the life of Thomas Chatterton, and in chattrton Marie Dorval starred as Kitty Bell.
Chatterton is considered to be one of the best of the French romantic dramas and is still performed regularly. The story of Chatterton had inspired one of the three episodes of Vigny’s luminous philosophical novel Stelloin which Vigny examines the relation of poetry to society and concludes that the poet, doomed to be regarded with suspicion in every social order, must remain somewhat aloof and apart from the social order. Servitude et grandeur militaires was a similar tripartite meditation on the condition of the soldier.
Although Alfred de Vigny gained success as a writer, his personal life was not happy.
His marriage was a disappointment; his relationship with Marie Dorval was plagued by jealousy; and his literary talent was eclipsed by the achievements of others.
Proust regarded La Maison du berger as the greatest French poem of the 19th century. In later years, Vigny ceased to publish. He continued to write, however, and his Journal is considered by modern scholars to be a great work in its own right.
Vigny considered himself a thinker as well as a literary author; he was, for example, one of the first French writers to take a serious intere Books by Alfred de Vigny. No trivia or quizzes yet.
