Γραμμένο λίγο πριν το 1740, το μυθιστόρημα αυτό περιγράφει τις πρώτες περιπέτειες ενός νεαρού και όμορφου χωρικού που αν και φτωχός και κοινωνικά αδαής φτάνει στο Παρίσι αποφασισμένος να ανέλθει κοινωνικά. Οι προσπάθειές του για κοινωνική άνοδο στηρίζονται στις γνωριμίες του κατά κύριο λόγο με μεσόκοπες ευκατάστατες και ευσεβείς κυρίες οι οποίες δεν μένουν ασυγκίνητες από την ομορφιά του. Οι γνωριμίες αυτές (που περιγράφονται αρκετά αθώες, μην ξεχνάμε ότι μιλάμε για ένα έργο γραμμένο πριν από 28 ...more

A masterpiece of subtlety and intelligence. It's a shame it remained unfinished.

A novel important for the early 18th century French society (its critique foremost). I wasn't so into the story that I could not put the book down, but you definitely do get frustrated and unnerved by the main character-always a good sign when you feel something! Not bad, but I don ...more
