Subject Dorat, Claude Joseph, 1734-1780
Creator Dorat, Claude Joseph 1734-1780.
Description Dorat, Claude Joseph (1734-1780) À Paris, Chez Didot, l'aîné, Imprimeur & Libraire, Rue Pavée. 1778 Nouv. Ed. Claude Dorat came from a family of attorneys, a profession he rejected. He joined the Corps of the King's Musketeers and after leaving that, turned to the life of a writer. An early work, Réponse d'Abailard à Héloise, became quite popular. Dorat continued to write heroic epistles, light verse, comedies, fables, and novels, none of which were very good. He tried to conceal his failure by paying for expensive, lavishly illustrated publications of his work. He would buy large numbers of seats to his plays in an attempt to hide the inevitable flop. In the end, Dorat drew fire from all directions and was equally disliked by the philosophes and their arch-enemies.
