The president will not survive this breakup. There are no happy endings here, except maybe for me. Think 84, Charing Cross Road or Clarissa.
She presents a front of kindness and virtue as she distills a stronger venom than any man, who’s social position would never be endangered by their libertine daliances. Sex and power, twisted love and betrayal: You have my blessing!!
So they play dangerous games for entertainment, imposing challenges to each other, seducing young virgins, making adulteress out of prude virtuous women, taking revenge of formers lovers ruining their reputation View all 5 comments.

Peliyrosas protagonist “Marquise de Merteuil” can’t be any more wretched and brilliant at the same time. If you play in the highest league of society, every secret you share is a potential liability, and that is just as true now as it was in the 18th century.

View all 10 comments. Monsieur de Laclos masters the style, creating two hero-villain characters whom, although monsters without scruples, one can’t help to admire. It has inspired a large number of critical and analytic commentaries, plays, and films.
I was tempted to abandon it, but I persisted and am glad, for–although this epistolary novel of the last days of the ancien regime initially appears to be stylish but superficial–it soon grows in both subtlety and power. B The cunning and despicable characters are so dubious and evil that I was full of hatred while reading. I would love …more By the end of the story, anistades of the letters are meaningless.
Definitely one of my top favourite books of all time! The letters of the wicked are elegant, the letters of the good are instructive, but the letters of the naive and innocent are by necessity simple and ingenuous, and their lack of awareness both taxes the patience and dissipates the interest of the reader, all the more so because they aggravate his sympathies and frustrate his moral impulses at the same time.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. I bought this Folio Society edition—crushed carmine silk over boards— some years ago to commemorate past readings and carry me through future ones.

Both she and Valmont are self-centred and often heartless, uninterested in anything but their pleasure and the amusement of their games and outwitting everyone for entertainment, regardless of who they may hurt.
In my opinion, it’s incredible that a novel written more than years pelitrosas, might still stir deep emotions in those who can invest a moment of their time to think about the possible reasons that led a man like M. Intrigue, sex, betrayal – it is a gripping story told in the margins between the written word and the gaps between the letters.

She makes precisely this point. I have to admit that I thought of dropping this book when we were halfway but she said that she would peligeosas on and so I just continued. Without a doubt, external, societal judgment is still evident. What is this I hear! It is then for Valmont to carry out his conquest of the president, which he likes.
