Abstract

Language and literature played a significant role in the modification of emigrant and British visions of the Revolution and Counter-Revolution. Literary critics have emphasized the obligation French emigrants had to invent new literary and aesthetical languages when confronted with ideological and ethical dilemmas. In an attempt to find an émigré-British intercultural location, the strategic choices made by writers, readers, translators and booksellers are examined to assess the circulation, adoption and rejection of the émigré programme in Britain.
