5.0 out of 5 stars Art and pregnancy, 15 Nov. 2010
Luc REYNAERT (Beernem, Belgium) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ehrengard (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
This short story is a miniature of "Dangerous Liaisons' and `The Bath of Diana' spiced with a disguised Casanova.
A noble family has to find a solution for the `premature' pregnancy of the wife of their sole heir.

The short story shines through its falsely idyllic simplicity, its amoral confidences, its ephemeral atmosphere of an old tale (for adults) and its miraculous symbolism (art and pregnancy) with its totally unexpected end.
It is a perfect introduction to the works of the author of `Out of Africa' and `Babette's Feast' (in `Anecdotes of Destiny').

Highly recommended to all lovers of world literature.
