"On s'ennuie de tout, mon ange, c'est une loi de la nature ; ce n'est pas ma faute. Si donc, je m'ennuie aujourd'hui d'une aventure qui m'a occupé entièrement depuis quatre mortels mois, ce n'est pas ma faute. Si, par exemple, j'ai eu juste autant d'amour que toi de vertu, et c'est sûrement beaucoup dire, il n'est pas étonnant que l'un ait fini en même temps que l'autre. Ce n'est pas ma faute. [...] Aujourd'hui, une femme que j'aime éperdument exige que je te sacrifie. Ce n'est pas ma faute. [...] Crois-moi, choisis un autre amant, comme j'ai fait une autre maîtresse. Ce conseil est bon, très bon ; si tu le trouves mauvais, ce n'est pas ma faute. Adieu, mon ange, je t'ai prise avec plaisir, je te quitte sans regret : je te reviendrai peut-être. Ainsi va le monde. Ce n'est pas ma faute."

From the Inside Flap:

In this special collector's edition of the French classic Les Liaisons Dangereuses, the Marquise de Merteuil and her accomplished rival in the art of erotic and psychological manipulation, the Vicomte de Valmont, take the stage again in Ernest Dowson's beautifully polished translation of the book which, as Baudelaire famously said, "Burns like ice."

In this new edition of the once infamous novel, the elegance of Dowson's translation is stylishly complemented by the elegant, coolly erotic etchings of Sylvain Sauvage, originally executed by that distinguished French illustrator for a deluxe edition published in Paris in 1930. Sauvage's artful renditions of scenes from the novel provide an elegant accompaniment for the darkly glittering luxury and decadence of le beau monde portrayed by de Laclos.

About the Author:

Pierre Ambroise François Choderlos de Laclos (1741-1803) was born in Amiens, France. He entered the army at the age of 18 and reached the rank of capitaine-commandant without seeing battle. In 1779 he was sent to the island of Aix, where Les Liaisons Dangereuses was written. He also wrote a treatise on the education of women and on the French military architect Vauban.
