There are a lot of problems with this - how Laure is defined by her great romances, or in other words, by the men around her. I don't mean to discredit the importance that love and the relationships we have as not being central to our lives, but I feel like she is defined by those around her. This is problematic for her writings are about defining or separating herself from the world around her.

Regardless, it has been a while since I've had a dead French woman to obsess over.
