The Confession of a Child of The Century (1836) by Alfred de Musset is the story of Octave, a young man of means, "taken with the malady of the age" -- a profound disillusionment with the world and humanity -- after his mistress betrays his trust.

The single incident of infidelity serves as a catalyst that shapes the cynical mindest, following him for the greater part of his life, and imbuing with tragedy his subsequent relationships.

About the Author:

Alfred de Musset (1810-1857) was a French poet, playwright, and novelist. He was born in Paris to a well-to-do family and turned to writing after first studying to be a doctor. Influenced by Lord Byron and Shakespeare, he fraternized with many great French writers such as Victor Hugo. He died in 1857 of a heart malfunction.
