Liaisons Dangereuses /

'I resolved to write a book which would create some stir in the world and continue to do after I had gone from it.' - Choderlos de LaclosA great sensation at the time of first publication, Les Liaisons Dangereuses reads as much the most 'modern' of eighteenth-century novels. Viewed by some critics as a morality tale and others as a subtle inquiry into libertinism, it brilliantly depicts the foibles of the French aristocracy on the eve of the French Revolution. Renowned for its exploration of lust, revenge and human malice, and still carrying a tremendous pow

  • "Dramatization of Laclos's 1782 novel. Portrayal of decadence and cynicism of French aristocracy in last years of ancien regime. 2 acts, 18 scenes, 5 men, 4 women, extras, 1 setting."@en
  • "Présentée et annotée par Robert Abirached sur le texte de 1787 (l'édition originale étant de 1782), ce chef-d'oeuvre libertin du 18e siècle est pourvu d'une chronologie et d'une bibliographie. Edition de bibliothèque. [SDM]."
  • "The complex moral ambiguities of seduction and revenge make Les Liaisons dangereuses (1782) one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. The subject of major film and stage adaptations, the novel's prime movers, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game - a game which they must win."

  • "The book is told through a series of one hundred and seventy five letters. The Vicomte de Valmont and Madam de Merteuil, wealthy and bored, plot for pleasure and power. They practice the art of seduction, manipulating the affections and sexual desires of others. Eventually, however, their scheme turns against them, and there are no winners in this story."@en
  • "It is the story of the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, two rivals (and ex-lovers) who use sex as a weapon to humiliate and degrade others, all the while enjoying their cruel games. It has been claimed to depict the decadence of the French aristocracy shortly before the French Revolution. However, it has also been described as a vague, amoral story. The book wasn't viewed as scandalous at the time of its publications, though the real intentions of the author remain unknown. It has been suggested that Laclos's intention was the same as that of his fictional author in the novel: to write a morality tale about the corrupt, squalid nobility."
  • "The Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, accomplished rivals in the art of seduction, take the stage again in Ernest Dowson's beautifully polished translation of the scandalous French classic Les Liaisons Dangereuses. The machinations begin with the Marquise inducing Valmont to seduce the young fiancee of her former lover Gercourt, in a simple act of revenge. Complications soon arise, however, as the intricate story, full of sub-intrigues and convoluted schemes, spirals toward a tragic end for these unscrupulous charmers. Though Laclos's deliciously wicked tale of wit, revenge, hypocrisy, seduction, and betrayal is told with the utmost refinement, to this day it retains an extraordinary power to discomfit or even shock. In this special Collector's Edition, the elegance of the prose is stylishly complemented by the sophisticated, coolly erotic etchings of Sylvain Sauvage, originally created for a rare edition published in Paris in 1930."@en

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Love . . . sex . . . seduction. Of the three, only the last matters. Love is a meaningless word, and sex an ephemeral pleasure, but seduction is an amusing game in which victory means power and the ability to humiliate one's enemies and revel with one's friends. So it is for the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, two supremely bored aristocrats during the final years before the French Revolution. Together they concoct a wildly wicked wager: If Valmont can successfully seduce the virtuous wife of a government official, Madame de Tourvel, then Madame Merteuil will sleep with him again. But Madame Merteuil also wants Valmont to conquer the young and innocent former convent schoolgirl, C&#233;cile Volanges. Can he do both? When Les Liaisons Dangereuses was first published in 1782, it both scandalized and titillated the aristocracy it was aimed against, who publicly denounced it and privately devoured it. Today we still recognize its relevance, for what could be more contemporary than its appalling image of everyday evil &#151; small, selfish, manipulative, and mean. Alfred Mac Adam, Professor at Barnard College&#150;Columbia University, teaches Latin American and comparative literature. He is a translator of Latin American fiction and writes extensively on art."

  • "The complex moral ambiguities of seduction and revenge make Les Liaisons dangereuses (1782) one of the most scandalous and controversial novels in European literature. Its prime movers, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, gifted, wealthy, and bored, form an unholy alliance and turn seduction into a game - a game which they must win. And they play with such wit and style that it is impossible not to admire them - until they discover that the game has mysterious rules that they cannot understand. In the ensuing vicious battle there can be no victors, and the innocent will suffer with the guilty. This new translation gives Laclos a modern voice, and readers will be able to judge whether the novel is as 'diabolical' and 'infamous' as its critics have claimed, or whether it has much to tell us about the kind of world we ourselves live in."
