Notes

Edited with an introduction by Desmond Flower. The Roxburghe Club, 1981. A facsimile reproduction, with transcription, of the eight pages of autograph manuscript which are all that survive of Therèse, a play written when Voltaire was nearing the height of his powers.

Desmond Flower’s introduction outlines the circumstances of the play’s creation and considers why it was never publicly performed.
