Dissertations Contre Corneille chronicles one of the great literary controversies of seventeenth-century France.  In 1663, François Hédelin, l’abbé d’Aubignac, published four dissertations in which he criticised with increasing ferocity the most famous and greatest playwright of the century, Corneille.  The first dissertation attacks Sophonisbe, the second Sertorius, the third Oedipe, and the fourth concentrates on the personality of Corneille.
 
This is the first edition of these writings to be published since the eighteenth century, and will be of importance for scholars of seventeenth-century French literature.
