Description:

In-8°, pp. 161, (3), cartonatura editoriale illustrata con un disegno di Renoir (Tête de femme). Dorso telato. Stato di nuovo. Prima edizione italiana; traduzione di Carlo Fruttero. Pubblicato anonimo nel 1949, il racconto è dovuto in realtà alla penna di una ben nota esponente del Gruppo di Bloomsbury, Dorothy Strachey Bussy (1865-1960), sorella fra l'altro di Lytton Strachey, che traspose qui, con estrema finezza di stile e di psicologia, la giovanile infatuazione per una sua insegnante. Un componimento privato e unico: ma di misura talmente perfetta. da far subito pensare a certi famosi e brevi gioielli della letteratura amorosa, dalla Princesse de Clèves al Diable au corps. (dalla quarta di copertina). I Coralli, 103. Bookseller Inventory #

L'intrigue met en scène la passion d'une jeune pensionnaire anglaise pour l'une de ses enseignantes françaises, Mlle Julie, dont le personnage doit beaucoup à Marie Souvestre. Le roman fit scandale, même s'il s'inscrivait dans une tradition déjà bien établie, depuis Claudine à l'école, de Willy et Colette (1900), jusqu'au film Jeunes filles en uniforme (Mädchen in Uniform) (1931) /// Très bel exemplaire bien frais.
