  • Ce genre n'existe pas-pourquoi l'inventer? 

    Pillet, Elisabeth (Dalhousie University. Electronic Text Centre, 2003)

  • Labiche et la contestation de l'ordre établi 

    Krakovitch, Odile (Dalhousie University. Electronic Text Centre, 2008)

    Farnlof, Hans (Dalhousie University. Electronic Text Centre, 2008)
