Julie ou La Nouvelle Héloïse

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

«J'ai vu les murs de mon temps, et j'ai publié ces lettres» : c est par ces mots que l «éditeur» Rousseau ouvre La Nouvelle Héloïse, correspondance amoureuse entre Julie d Étange et son précepteur Saint-Preux.
Sur les rives du lac Léman, ces «belles âmes» forment une petite société idéale, où priment les passions douces et la sincérité du sentiment, à l écart des maux de la civilisation. Dans la lignée des Lettres persanes de Montesquieu, Rousseau conçoit son oeuvre comme un laboratoire d'idées nouvelles, qui concentre les questionnements de son époque sur l homme et ses passions.
Roman d'amour, chant élégiaque, mais aussi fiction expérimentale au croisement de l'anthropologie et de la politique : La Nouvelle Héloïse, plus grand succès de librairie de son temps, consacre avec éclat les noces du roman et de la philosophie au XVIIIe siècle.

A clean unmarked copy, with introduction, notes and an afterword.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
