History edit

The Revue des deux Mondes was founded by Prosper Mauroy and Pierre de Ségur-Dupeyron, first appearing on 1 August 1829. It began when an anodyne periodical, Journal des voyages, was purchased by the young printer Auguste-Jean Auffray, who convinced his college roommate François Buloz to edit it. Its original emphasis on travel and foreign affairs soon shifted;[2] according to its website, it was created to "establish a cultural, economic and political bridge between France and the United States", the Old World and the New.[a] It was purchased in 1831 by François Buloz, who was its editor until 1877, when Charles Buloz took over direction. Another influential editor was Ferdinand Brunetière (after 1893).

Among the early regular contributors who established the review's reputation as an elite liberal vehicle of haute culture were Albert, 4th duc de Broglie, François Guizot, Jacques Nicolas Augustin Thierry, Ludovic Vitet, Paul-François Dubois [fr], the literary critics Eugène-Melchior de Vogüé, Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve, Gustave Planche, and Jean-Jacques Ampère.[2][3]

Heinrich Heine first published an essay in three parts in 1834, De l'Allemagne depuis Luther, a history of emancipation in Germany beginning with the Reformation.[4] Stendhal published his novella Mina de Vinghel in the magazine.[citation needed] George Sand also serialized her novel Mauprat in the magazine in 1837.[5] Marguerite-Hélène Mahé serialised her novel Sortilèges créoles: Eudora ou l'île enchantée (fr), describing slavery in Réunion.[6] A later contributor was Hippolyte Taine.
