Literary, French, Language, Corneille


Mostly every nation has had its "Golden Era" of literature. Each great epoch thus understood encloses many smaller epochs which point out all the great characters, of all the accomplishments they have made from the decadence. It also points out some types of fortunate and misfortunate occurrences which might be renewed again. And this time a wise and tasteful man will be able to choose after so long an interval, a golden age, in which he will more or less add to the frame of that epoch, through some immortalizing work. He will be able to perhaps improve the fluency of the language, in this great epoch, or he might suggest new plans, which might be helpful to many, especially towards the adaption of the nation to his environment, this perhaps catering to their enthusiastic desires.
