This is the central site for a long-term project to research, examine, and respond to the radical collective of writers, theorists, architects, and visual artists who operated in Paris between 1829 and 1835 under the names of the Jeunes France & the Bouzingo, and through them to build a critical understanding of French Romanticist subculture through the historical lens of a continuing politically vigilant Anglophone avant-garde.

Translations

Like much of the site, this section is under gradual reconstruction, and research has progressed much faster than I have time to update and reflect here. I am in the process of re-directing the links, after Dropbox disabled most of their public links (a few seemed to have slipped through their net, strangely) and effectively shut down the whole page, as well a adding more recent translations.

Currently, this section includes only texts translated in relation to the 'Resurrection' project; as time allows, other public-domain translations will be added when they can be located, as well as links to the few other translations currently in print. Currently, the sidebars contain many links to both English and French sources.
