Pétrus Borel: Background, Reception and Interpretation[1] (1999) is a thesis on Petrus Borel by Erik S. Bovee.

Excerpts:

"The bousingo, or the more political offspring of the jeune-France, participated heavily in the recurrent riots of the period, culminating in the massacre of Saint-Merri." --Bovee
"The bousingo was, as Asselineau described him, a less refined, more politically active, and certainly more dangerous cousin of the jeune-France." --Bovee
Petrus Borel marque une phase, ou plutot une deviation du Romantisme, produite par l'invasion de la politique dans la litterature, apres la revolution de Juillet. Cette phase a eu son symbole, son type, le Bousingo (ou Bousingot) [...], avec son gilet a la Robespierre, sa grosse canne, sa longue barbe et ses longs cheveux, coiffee tantot de la casquette rouge a chainette, tantot du chapeau cire. Le Bousingot transporta dans la vie politique le style et les allures de l'ecole Romantique. Ce fut une variete du genre Jeune-France, mais aussi rude, aussi cynique que les autres etaient dandies et raffinés. En véritable artiste, il trouva tout de suite et avec genie la plastique de son idee. La passion de la couleur et de la localité avait pousse les ecrivains romantiques vers le luxe et l'eclat. Le Bousingot plongea dans la crapule et affecta les habitudes populacieres. II opposa le brule-gueule et le petit bleu aux narguilehs et aux hanaps. Des memes fusees, des memes soleils de metaphores qui se tiraient ailleurs en l'honneur des marchesines et des cathedrales, il fit des cartouches pour tirer sur le roi et sur les sergents de la ville; mais c'etait bien au fond le meme precede et la meme poetique. Romantiques et bousingots se rattachaient d'ailleurs par un point commun: la haine du bourgeois et l'horreur de la platitude. Les esprits les plus distingues de l'ecole subirent cette epidemic de la politique. --Charles Asselineau, Bibliographie Romantique via Bovee.
