9781589633469: King Candaules

A beautiful edition (illustrated by Paul Avril) of Gautier’s story of Candaules and Gyges from Herodotus (the long introduction by Anatole France is almost as much fun as this semi-erotic heroic fantasy novelette). Queen Nyssia, the wife of King Candaules was said to be the most beautiful creature ever to inhabit the earth. But because the rules concerning veils are even more severe for queens and such, the King was unable to enjoy the envy of others. It drove him mad, and from that point a very tragic tale unfolds, the advantage going to Queen Nyssia.

About the Author:

Anatole France (pseudonym of Jacques Anatol Thibault, 1844- 1924) was the most prominent French man of letters of his time. France's style was precise, elegant, gentle, ironic, and humorous. He was elected to the French Academy, and in 1921 was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature. Some of his other works include The Aspirations of Jean Servien, The Revolt of the Angels, and Penguin Island.
