Classiques Garnier Digital



All collections from Classiques Garnier are published simultaneously on paper and on-line.

That does not mean publication on-line of isolated texts in pdf, but the creation of a data-base for each collection in image-hidden text and full-text modes, allowing complex searches on structured texts and not simply word-searches.

New titles are introduced into the bases as soon as they are published.
The full catalog is available in Excel format.

Several series, directed by the most competent specialists, will draw the contours of this investigation (novels, pastorals, tragedies, law, sciences, religion, music, free thought, utopias, mystics, travel literature, etc.). From these strong lines of enquiry should emerge and enriched vision of the contrasts of the 17th century.

To inscribe a work in its social, historical, intellectual and artistic context is to help us understand its production - its poetics. In the alliance of scientific erudition and the intuition of internal textual analysis, these studies seek not so much to interpret a given work as to situate its specific character in a global literary history.
