But the Renaissance, is a breath of oxygen, is the French at all levels, clearly happy to know started. But what has given this promotion of knowledge cheerful? To the Home was a release, with all the excesses that come with any release: a true enthusiasm! However, little by little, the enthusiasm went, and this was the birth of what we call "literature", which was to express, in French, even the most serious things, things of time, knowledge of the time. It was the knowledge of the university continued speaking in Latin, but knowledge for college, in a way, which was broadcast in French. Under these conditions it is understood that the texts as those of Madame de La Fayette, Racine's tragedies or comedies of Moliere were literary, under the same title of the speeches of the method of Descartes, the Pensees of Pascal or the Spirit of Montesquieu's laws. When we see the work of Descartes manuals included in the seventeenth century literature, we wonder: "What can you do good in the literature Discourse on Method?" Well, can do so simply because he expressed his speech Descartes French.

Similarly, it was Pascal. He certainly has also things unreadable, but it was in French theology. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Chuck Berry. They learn now that what I did as good literature, like a tragedy of Racine, a work of Descartes, Pascal or Montesquieu, was that these French authors expressed knowledge that since the Middle Ages until the eighteenth century there was no interest to anyone, because knowledge was Latin.
