The Sixteenth-Century English "Proverb" Play


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

In the drawing rooms of nineteenth-century France, a form of drama known as the "proverbe" was "a play of which a proverb is taken as the foundation of the plot,"1 and the genre is now being revived in the films of Eric Rohmer, especially in his new series of "Comedies et Proverbes."
