Although events in La Harpe's life led him to become a friend of the Catholic revival during which Chateaubriand, to name only one, was pleased to have his support, he is rightly best remembered as a disciple of Voltaire who rose to eminence as a critic through his wholehearted acceptance of the latter's ideas. Everything in the man and in his work is deeply marked by the influence of the patriarch. He sought fame, not only as a critic, but as a playwright, poet, orator, translator and pamphleteer.
