About this text
A digital showcase seems a more fitting repository for the Mazarinade pamphlet poems than a dusty archival box . Easily disseminated , anonymised and pocketed , the pamphlet and the digital copy both represent significant technological developments in the history of literature and share many parallels in their modes of transmission . This digital edition serves to highlight the daringly public nature of the political affront of the Mazarinades and their extraordinary propagation , totalling thousands of different libelles throughout the civil wars of the Fronde .
This Mazarinade contributes to the turmoil in a vitriolic , fervent tone . The title conspicuously and provocatively frames it as the collective voice of the people . Printed with broad margins and no split stanzas or wasted space at the end , the poem evidences a self-consciousness of its physical form , providing an interesting case in both the challenges and opportunities presented by digitisation .
