Elie Fréron Bibliography

L’ Année littéraire 1754
Journal (1754-1776) founded and edited by Fréron in which, presenting a thorough survey of French literature, he attacked Voltaire and the Encyclopedists, evoking from Voltaire his famous rejoinders Le Pauvre diable and L’ Écossaise. Fréron was imprisoned at Vincennes in 1746, in the Bastille in 1757, and narrowly escaped a similar fate in 1765.
