Barante’s most important historical work, Histoire des ducs de Bourgogne (1824–28; “History of the Dukes of Burgundy”), won him immediate admission to the Académie Française. Its moving narrative quality, purity of style, and brilliant use of local colour were highly praised; it exhibits, however, a lack of critical discernment and scientific scholarship. His other historical studies include Histoire de la Convention Nationale, 6 vol. (1851–53; “History of the National Convention”), and Histoire du Directoire de la République française (1855; “History of the Directory of the French Republic”). He also wrote biographies of Joan of Arc and other French historical figures, as well as a study of 18th-century French literature; furthermore, he is known as a translator of William Shakespeare and Friedrich von Schiller. Barante’s political writings dealt with contemporary views on aristocracy and social organization.
