Benedetta Craveri, Teresa Waugh:
Madame Du Deffand and World - hardcover

ISBN: 1567920012

[SR: 140507], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781567920017], David R. Godine Publisher, David R. Godine Publisher, Book, [PU: David R. Godine Publisher], David R. Godine Publisher, This biography of Madame du Deffand describes the life of this highly intelligent libertine and the role she played in the social and cultural life of 18th-century France. Quoting extensively from her subject's correspondence, Craveri attempts to relive the world of the "philosophes" of the Enlightment, centred around Voltaire and d'Alembert, and unravels a complex world of extreme intelligence, taste and sensibility, revealing a new view of reality, full of foreboding for the future. Gifted with destructive insight, and dominated by obsessive boredom, Madame du Deffand tended towards cynicism and wariness in her opinion of men, ever-fearful of being disappointed by others. When she became old and blind, she developed a passion for the young English writer Horace Walpole, son of the Prime Minister.

Translated from the Italian and French by Teresa Waugh. Marie Anne de Vichy-Chamrond, marquise du Deffand (1697-1780) was a famous hostess and patron of the arts. Her salon members were drawn from aristocratic society more than from literary circles, but did include Voltaire, Montesquieu, Fontenelle, Madame de Staal-Delaunay, and D'Alembert. After her return to Paris, at the insistence of friends, she engaged Mademoiselle de Lespinasse to help her in entertaining, but Lespinasse was later dismissed as she had become more popular than her patron with some guests. She corresponded with Horace Walpole for fifteen years, and who visited her in Paris several times. **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.94 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST **** .
