Corneille, Thomas (1625-1709) Imprimés à Rouen, et se vendent à Paris, chez A. Covbre…et G. Lvyne.... 1661, avec Privilège du Roy Thomas Corneille was the brother of French playwright Pierre Corneille. Although Thomas was nearly twenty years younger than Pierre, they were close all their lives, marrying sisters, living together and often working together. In spite of the near-worship of Pierre, Thomas was also recognized in his day as a great author. He wrote his first play in Latin at the age of fifteen. He wrote the longest running play of the period, Timocrate. He also wrote a play that was booed off the stage. Over a period of forty years, he wrote forty plays, in nearly every genre and in poetry and prose. His work was performed at court and in all the major theaters of Paris. Fifty years after his death, Voltaire wrote of Thomas that, “with the exception of Racine, no one compared.”v.1. Les engagemens du hazard.--Le feint astrologve.--D.
