L ES préjugés dont on revient le plus difficilement sont ceux que les gens d’esprit nous font adopter. L’Éloquence a sur nos cœurs des droits d’autant plus certains qu’ennemie en apparence de toute tiranie & de toute contrainte, elle n’employe pour nous maîtriser que la seule persuasion.
Les Poëtes ont coutume de représenter Mercure avec des chaînes d’or qui lui sortent de la bouche, pour nous apprendre que par la douceur de l’élocution & le charme de la parole on fait des hommes ce que l’on veut.

Anglophiles may use English spellings instead of American spellings, such as ‘colour’ instead of ‘color’, ‘centre’ rather than ‘center’, and ‘traveller’ rather than ‘traveler’. Madonna is an example of an Anglophile. Anglophilia became popular in the German states in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, with the German public being especially attracted to the work of Shakespeare, a phenomenon known in Germany as Shakespearomanie. In 19th century France, Anglophilia was popular amongst certain elements, though not with the French people in general. The popular Catholic royalist intellectual Charles Maurras took a virulently Anglophobic viewpoint that Britain was the « cancer » of the world, rotting out everything good, especially in his beloved France. A Frenchman very much influenced by Taine’s Anglophilia was Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who after reading Taine’s Notes on England wanted to establish schools to produce gentlemen in France.
Between the 14th to the 17th centuries, the Balkans region of Europe was conquered by the Ottoman Empire. In the 19th century, various Orthodox peoples such as the Greeks, Bulgarians and Serbs, charging that they were being oppressed by the Muslim Ottomans fought wars of independence. Jovanović was a Serbian economist and politician of marked liberal views who was much influenced by John Stuart Mill’s 1859 book On Liberty and by Gladstone, taking the viewpoint that Britain should be the model for the modernization of Serbia, which had emerged as a de facto independent state in 1817 after being under Ottoman rule since 1389. The diplomat, economist and politician Mijatović became an Anglophile after marrying a British woman Elodie Lawton in 1864.
03, Mijatović was the Serbian minister in London, during which time he became much involved in cultural activities, and liked Britain so much he lived in London from 1889 to his death in 1932. The writer and politician Geshov first started learning English at the age of 14 and at the age of 16 moved to Manchester, being subsequently educated at Owen College. During his time in Britain, Geshov recalled: « I was influenced by English political and social life amidst which I was developing. Gennadius was a wealthy Greek and a famous bibliophile educated at the English Protestant College in Malta who moved to London in 1863 at the age of 19 where he worked as a journalist for a liberal newspaper, The Morning Star. Venizelos was a Greek liberal politician who served as Prime Minister several times between 1910 and 1933. In World War I, Venizelos tried to bring Greece into the war on the Allied side, causing a clash with King Constantine I and hence leading to the National Schism between supporters of the King and the Prime Minister. Among the Karen people of Burma who were converted to Christianity by British missionaries in the 19th century and had long felt oppressed by the militaristic Burmese state, Anglophilia is very common.
The Brazilian writer Gilberto Freyre was a well known Anglophile. The British cultural critic Robert P. Irvine has argued that the popularity of the novels of Jane Austen, and even more so the film adaptations of her novels, have formed part of the « cultural capital » of the « white, Anglophile East Coast elite » in the United States since the late 19th century. Instead, Irvine argued that the popularity of Austen films in America was due to the emergence of an ordered society, not based on land and birth as in the novels, but based on a « hierarchy of leisure and consumption », where class is « status conferred by money », in short a society much like the modern United States. Irvine commented that Austen films starting with the 1995 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice have with remarkable consistency « cater to female desires and the female gaze » by depicting handsome actors wearing tight-fitting clothing and breeches in an « era when men could still be the locus of the beautiful ». Britishisms and the Britishisation of American English ». There are lots of things about England I love, but my husband isn’t one of them,’ says Madonna as she plans to stay in UK ».
