Overview:Complete Works of Voltaire 10: Adelaide Du Guesclin - Complete Works of Voltaire 10 - This volume contains Voltaire's early successful plays, "Adelaide Du Guesclin" and its subsequent reworkings: "Les Freres ennemis", "Amelie ou le duc de Foix" and "Alamire". "Adelaide Du Guesclin" is the first of Voltaire's historical plays to draw on the French Middle Ages for its characters rather than an 18th century fantasy of the Middle East, although the dark drama of jealous passion and noble patriotism which unfolds is Voltaire's own creation. Penned in the wake of the War of the Spanish Succession, Voltaire weaves fictionalised history works in counterpoint with the geopolitical events of his age. The other plays in the volume interlink to reveal the afterlife of "Adelaide", which was adapted for new performance contexts and settings. "Les Freres ennemis" is a condensed version of "Adelaide" for performance at the court of Frederick II of Prussia.
