9782081229174: La Princesse De Cleves (French Edition)

La Princesse de Clèves est un roman publié anonymement par Marie-Madeleine de La Fayette en 1678. Cette uvre est considérée comme le premier roman moderne de la littérature française.
L action se déroule, en 1558, à la cour du roi Henri II.
Mademoiselle de Chartres, jeune fille de seize ans élevée par sa mère selon de rigoureuses règles de morale, paraît pour la première fois au Louvre. Le prince de Clèves, ébloui par sa beauté, la demande en mariage. Mademoiselle de Chartres accepte ce mariage de raison. Trop tard, la Princesse de Clèves rencontre le duc de Nemours, un coureur de jupons. Naît entre eux une passion immédiate et partagée, à laquelle sa mère, Madame de Chartres la conjure de renoncer : « ne craignez point de prendre des partis trop rudes et trop difficiles, quelque affreux qu ils vous paraissent d abord : ils seront plus doux dans les suites que les malheurs d une galanterie ».
Le roman décrit avec beaucoup de minutie les étapes du sentiment amoureux chez les trois personnages, ses effets sur leur comportement et la lutte de la princesse pour ne pas trahir les préceptes maternels.

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.
