Présentation de l’éditeur
Jacques Cazotte est né à Dijon, en 1720, et il périt sur l’achafaud, à Paris, en 1792. Il a publié de nombreuses œuvres, mais il est aujourd’hui surtout connu pour un conte fantastique, Le Diable amoureux, publié à Paris en 1772.
Arrêtez, m’écriai-je, en me mettant les poings fermés sur les yeux, vous êtes le plus adroit, le plus insigne des faussaires. Vous parlez d’amour, vous en présentez l’image, vous en empoisonnez l’idée, je vous défends de m’en dire un mot. Laissez-moi me calmer assez, si je le puis, pour devenir capable de prendre une résolution.

Not enough time to assemble an individual masterpiece to play Halloween make-believe? Looking at that off-the-rack costume, that witch outfit from last year, and sighing that it’ll have to do?
Let Executed Today help you go from so generic to sui generis with a horrible backstory that adds conversation-starting depth to the most bland of disguises.
The Halloween standby has a few hundred thousand real-life executions of which we’ve covered a bare handful .
Anne de Chartraine. a Walloon teenager burnt for witchcraft during the Thirty Years’ War, makes a good characterization of the classic black-hat-and-broomstick outfit.
More complex occultist disguises might consider presenting themselves as poisoner La Voisin. author Jacques Cazotte or the Weirs .
Avast, ye sea-dog &- there be more pirates than Blackbeard.
Men (especially leftists, anarchists and Bostonians &- but I repeat myself) will enjoy answering the inevitable question when representing as William Fly. Ladies &- think Anne Bonny and Mary Read .
Appropriately, the Great White North has interesting specters to round out the old white-sheet look. Haunt the scene of the kegstand as Madame Marie Josephte Corriveau or assassin Patrick Whelan .
Cicero is an obvious choice for the toga set, but consider writing Catiline on the nametag instead.
For the whole centurion look, call yourself Sejanus and start settling scores.
There are many military looks for many times and places, of course, lots of them liable to be politically touchy in the wrong crowd.
Partisans like Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya and Evagoras Pallikarides cut heroic figures with a plain set of clothes, some basic military gear, and a knapsack full of consonants.
This blog will always have a special place at the stake for supposed real-life lycanthrope Peter Stubbe. the &”Werewolf of Bedburg&” who was profiled in our very first post: he was executed October 31, 1589.
Of course, there is one ubiquitous character in these pages &- and his face isn’t always well-hidden.
Klutzy Brit Jack Ketch. prolific French Revolution headsman Sanson. U.S. President Grover Cleveland and (helpfully, for Halloween) flamboyantly costumed Italian executioner Mastro Titta are among the famous characters to tread the scaffold boards.

On this date in 1792, Jacques Cazotte, a writer distinctly out of step with his times, was guillotined for treason in Paris.
The Martinique-born Cazotte (English Wikipedia entry | French ) was into his 40s when he launched the writing career that earns him notice enough for this blog.
He wasn’t a liberte, egalite, fraternite kind of guy: Cazotte’s works, like Le Diable Amoureux (The Devil in Love ),* were fantastical, Gothic &- far from the rationalist fare of the Enlightenment.
And that wasn’t exclusively a literary posture.
Cazotte fancied himself gifted with prophecy &- enthusiasts’ accounts have him prophesying the course of the Revolution &- and preferred the mystical enlightenment of the illuminati to the Voltairean kind.** He viewed the onset of the French Revolution with horror.
When some scribblings to that effect were discovered in his papers, the mystical goose was cooked. The French Wikipedia entry credits his daughter with saving his life during the September Massacres &… buying the 72-year-old only a few weeks of life.
Cazotte’s Le Diable Amoureux has the devil as a young man’s servant girl, endeavoring to seduce him. Here is Cesare Pugni ‘;s balletic rendition, Satanella. with its grand pas de deux. &”Le Carnaval de Venise,&” from the Kirov:
Cazotte finds his way to us, as the dark arts are wont to do, through more meandering channels as well.
Le Diable Amoureux inspired supernatural mystery The Club Dumas by Spanish author Arturo Perez-Reverte. That novel in turn was riffed by Roman Polanski for the weird 1999 flick The Ninth Gate (review ), starring Johnny Depp. (Cazotte’s book is explicitly referenced in both its progeny.)
Although only tangentially related, this digression into the occult gives us leave to notice one of the many cultural ephemera of executions linked to no particularly blog-friendly date. The Club Dumas and The Ninth Gate make use of striking woodcuts of modern vintage but after a style of centuries past that help unlock the central puzzle.
Charged with esoterica, the topical-looking &”hanged man&” print comes clearly modeled after its tarot cousin &… although the tarot version, in most instances, is hoped to be of less deadly effect upon the plot.
