Blaise Pascal stands as one of the leading voices in both religion and literature in the Seventeenth Century. The author considers whether the tone of mockery and irony in the Provincial Letters is appropriate to Pascal’s overall intent and to the Christian context of his work. The author compares Pascal’s writing to Biblical passages that employ mockery and to similar themes found in Plato. Text in French.
