Abstract

This essay locates Denis Diderot’s influential Paradoxe sur le comédien at the end of a complex set of Anglo-French exchanges on the art of acting. These exchanges, particularly with respect to the actor’s sensibility and creative powers, are marked with a set of tensions and contradictions that Diderot exploits in the writing of his provocative and influential text.
