Madame de Lafayette

Baroque period author of The Princess of Clèves

One of the most convincing stories of devotion and enduring love in any language.

The New Yorker

Few works are so well calculated as The Princess of Clèves to give us a correct impression of the delicacy, polish, and refinement which marked the court of Louis XIV.

—Julia Kavanagh

Nancy Mitford, a delicately devastating observer of the aristocracy herself, is an ideal selection as the translator.
