" Je vais vous faire un aveu que l'on n'a jamais fait à un mari... " Sincère, tourmentée, la princesse de Clèves ne parvient plus à taire ses sentiments. Elle brûle d'amour depuis trop longtemps pour le duc de Nemours, l'un des plus beaux fleurons de la cour d'Henri II. Son désir est ardent ! Désespéré ! Mais elle a juré fidélité à son époux, le prince de Clèves.Elle aspire au bonheur et ne peut brader sa vertu. Elle veut aimer sans trahir... Cruel dilemme ! Faut-il donc renoncer au monde ? Faire ainsi le malheur d'un mari et d'un amant ? La mort est-elle préférable aux affres de l'amour ? Du mariage au déchirement, de la pudeur au sacrifice... Madame de La Fayette exprime jusque dans ses plus impudiques silences la langue subtile de la passion.

Language Notes:

The Princess de Cleves, the first great short novel in the French language, was published anonymously in 1678, although 'advance publicity' has made it clear that the author was Madame de Lafayette (with the probable assistance of La Rochefoucauld and others). The book caused a sensation then, and is now considered one of the French classics. Although this is a historical novel, set in the last splendid days of Henri II of France, it does in fact reflect the manners and morals of the court of Louix XIV: and in this artificial setting of gossip, deceit and intrigue (ably fostered by the teenage Mary, Queen of Scots), the tortures passions of the gallant Duc de Nemours and the radiant wife of the Prince de Cleves shine out with a pure brilliance.
