From Library Journal:

Amid the florescence of Enlightenment reasoning in 18th-century Europe raged an insatiable curiosity in the occult sciences. In this fantastic tale, a sprightly new translation of Cazotte's 1772 classic Le diable amoureux , a young Spanish nobleman makes an impetuous boast to his drinking buddies that he will "tweak great Satan's ears." The spirits are conjured, and though uninitiated in the supernatural, Alvaro boldly commands the devil--who then appears in the form of an enchanting page, Biondetto, first male, then female. Alvaro is delighted, then horrified to discover that the page is in love with him and pledges to serve him for life. With finely drawn details Cazotte imbues Biondetta with dazzling human qualities: Alvaro is smitten and his fate sealed. Also included are a biography of Cazotte by the critic Gerard de Nerval, which serves as a primary bibliography of the entire genre, and Cazotte's "Revelations," which some believe prophesied the French Revolution (in which Cazotte himself was guillotined). Recommended for accomplished collections.
