The term retifism for shoe fetishism was named after him. Owing to a scandal in which he was involved, he was apprenticed to a printer at Auxerre , and, having served his time, went to Paris. He drew on the episodes of his own life for his books, which, "in spite of their faded sentiment, contain truthful pictures of French society on the eve of the Revolution ". The original editions of these, and indeed of all his books, have long been bibliographical curiosities owing to their rarity, the beautiful and curious illustrations which many of them contain, and the quaint typographic system in which most are composed. The fall of the assignats during the Revolution forced him to make his living by writing, profiting on the new freedom of the press. In he received a gratuity of francs from the Thermidor Convention.

The term retifism for shoe fetishism was named after him. Owing to a scandal in which he was involved, he was apprenticed to a printer at Auxerre , and, having served his time, went to Paris. He drew on the episodes of his own life for his books, which, "in spite of their faded sentiment, contain truthful pictures of French society on the eve of the Revolution ". The original editions of these, and indeed of all his books, have long been bibliographical curiosities owing to their rarity, the beautiful and curious illustrations which many of them contain, and the quaint typographic system in which most are composed.

The fall of the assignats during the Revolution forced him to make his living by writing, profiting on the new freedom of the press. In he received a gratuity of francs from the Thermidor Convention. In spite of his declarations for the new power, his aristocratic acquaintances and his reputation made him fall in disgrace. Just before his death, Napoleon gave him a place in the ministry of police; he died at Paris before taking up the position.

According to Britannica ,. Restif de la Bretonne undoubtedly holds a remarkable place in French literature. He was inordinately vain, of extremely relaxed morals, and perhaps not entirely sane. His books were written with haste, and their licence of subject and language renders them quite unfit for general perusal. He was rediscovered by the Surrealists in the early 20th century.

He is also noted for his advocacy of communism , indeed the term first made its modern appearance in his book review of Joseph-Alexandre-Victor Hupay de Fuveau who described himself as "communist" with his Project for a Philosophical Community.

Jean-Louis Barrault played Restif. However, he was also a "pornographer" in the Ancient Greek sense of the word, as he wrote about the day-to-day life of prostitutes, and concerned himself with their well-being.

It was the latter definition which he accepted as the rightful use of the word. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article may be expanded with text translated from the corresponding article in French.
