Product Description

Review

This correspondence offers a unique "entr[5]ee" into "mondain" culture in the post-Fronde transition to Louis XIV s personal rule. Better, perhaps, than any other single document of the period, it engages modern readers in the femninist literature of mid-century and makes them take seriously a discourse on women, s choices and women s dreams that is too easily dismissed as "pr[5]ecieuse" posturing. --Carolyn Lougee Chappell "H-France Book Reviews ""
