SAINTE-COLLINE

In this satire of the inflexible ecclesiastical school of Sainte-Colline, M. Chevalier wields a sharper, more cruel -- if more bawdy pen than in the Scandals of Clochamaria. The motto of the disciplinarians is to impose on the minds of the boys ""the germ of indelible terrors"" -- and the plot lies in the various rebellions on the part of the students -- pranks in defiance of the rule, all of questionable taste as in Swift. When the vulgarity of the incidentals is overlooked, there still remains acute portraiture and a travesty of a false system.
