Analyzes multiple manifestations of the false in 19th century France. Focusing particularly on the aesthetics of fraudulence in works by Merimee, Balzac, Baudelaire, Vidocq, Sand, and others, this work places these literary representations within the context of other cultural phenomena, such as caricature, political history and ceremonial events.



Carpenter's study makes an important contribution to the cultural significance of mystification in nineteenth-century France and furthers our understanding of French literature and cultural history.
