The Literary Market: Authorship and Modernity in the Old Regime - Turnovsky, Geoffrey

This study offers a new reading of the development of modern authorship in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century France, through a detailed reexamination of one of the central mythologies of this evolution: the author's passage from dependence on patronage to the autonomy of the market.
