  1. This painting always reminds me how I loathed Corneille’s play on the subject and its pompous nonsensical heroism, back then when I was in highschool. I was so irritated I couldn’t even appreciate the language! which is very beautiful. The picture here has the same feeling.

  2. I don’t think we really came across his work so much in the UK, certainly in school!
