It was first published in French as La pratique du Amsterdam: Chez Pierre Chayer, William Levitan, in his recent Paris: Alphonse Lemerre, [ca. First published in Paris: Casterman, n. However, despite their reduction in the novels and the Journal of all feminine types to the one monstrous femme with which dix-neuviemistes are all too familiar, there does exist her opposite, she who could have emerged and flourished only under the right conditions, conditions not offered by the nineteenth century. The Goncourt brothers cite the years from the death of Louis XIV to the execution of Marie-Antoinette as the period in which France was the capital of wit and style, as the period in which French artists produced uniquely French art, and as the only period in which French women sublimely ruled French society and culture.
The brothers' vitriolic treatment of women becomes more fully meaningful, therefore, not solely in the context of an examination of their novels and the Journal, nor as part of a general cultural phenomenon i. The Goncourt brothers' Journal, their record of Parisian society in the last half of the nineteenth century, opens with Louis-Napoleon's coup d'etat and the publication of their first novel, En The novel announces through its title the two trajectories that their careers will follow: the literary and the historical. The Journal will serve as the nineteenth-century counterpart to the historical works that they devoted almost exclusively to the eighteenth century: the brothers' descriptions of their contemporaries in the Journal offer opportunities to compare what they perceive as two strikingly dissimilar historical moments.
The eighteenth century, symbol in their minds of all that was great and noble in France, is the criterion against which the nineteenth century, especially the Second Empire, is judged and reviled. Parallel to the juxtaposition of two historical moments are two notions of history, one perceived as authentic by the nature of the documents it left to posterity, the other demagogic, opportunistic, and self-serving in its manipulation of events for political purposes: "Ah!
The former type of history ends and the latter type begins with the Revolution.
The brothers' sense of distinction from their contemporaries comes precisely from their perception of the difference between the eighteenth and the nineteenth century and their cultural and intellectual affinity with the former:. The disparity between the two periods appears to them almost unfathomable, and they are constantly confronted with evidence to support this judgment.
About a lunch at Trianon with Princess Mathilde and her entourage the Goncourts comment: "Nous ne croyions guere, quand nous sommes venus chercher les pas de Marie-Antoinette, dejeuner dans le decor de chaumiere, que lui dessina Hubert-Robert, avec une Napoleon" Journal 1: An unknown error has occurred.
