Benhamou, Paul. “The Periodical Press in the Encyclopédie.” The French Review, vol. 59, no. 3, American Association of Teachers of French, 1986, pp. 410–17. JSTOR, https://www.jstor.org/stable/392669.
In his article, Benhamou concentrates
on the portrayal of the press in

entirely supportive of other journals
and periodicals, critiquing their
intrusion into literature and attacking
writers and readers alike and he
provides multiple instances of the
periodical press shined in a negative
