Book title:

Vies privees

Keyword type: Sub-category

Keyword definition: Works belonging to a genre of ‘Biography’ (or occasionally collective biography), newly emerged in the eighteenth century, that purported to relate the private as well as public life of famous persons, using the former to cast light upon the latter. Such works were often but not always defamatory or scandalous in content, and while they usually related to political figures, they could also narrate the private lives of celebrated criminals, cultural figures or even nations. As ‘Vie privees’ could cover collective entities, they do not invariably carry the keyword ‘Biography’. A sub-category of ‘Lives and Letters’.
