Most widely held works by H Ashton
The Princess of Cleves by La Fayette( Book )

11 editions published between 1900 and 1970 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking novel made a splash when it was initially published in 1678, changing the course of literary fiction forever. Rather than following in the same vein as the one-dimensional romances that preceded it, The Princess of Cleves tackles its characters' inner dilemmas with unprecedented sophistication and nuance
La princesse de Clèves by La Fayette( Book )

23 editions published between 1925 and 2009 in French and English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poised between the fading world of chivalric romance and a new psychological realism, Madame de Lafayette's novel of passion and self-deception marks a turning-point in the history of the novel. When it first appeared--anonymously--in 1678 in the heyday of French classicism, it aroused fierce controversy among critics and readers, in particular for the extraordinary confession which forms the climax of the story. Having long been considered a classic, it is now regarded as a landmark in the history of women's writing." "In this new translation, The Princesse de Cleves is accompanied by two shorter works also attributed to Madame de Lafayette, The Princesse de Montpensier and The Comtesse de Tende. Book jacket."--Jacket

"Poet and soldier, brawler and charmer, Cyrano de Bergerac is desperately in love with Roxane, the most beautiful girl in Paris. But there is one very large problem - he has a nose of stupendous size and believes she will never see past it to return his feelings. So when he discovers that the handsome but tongue-tied and dim-witted Christian is also pining for Roxane, generous Cyrano offers to help by writing exquisite declarations of love for the young man to woo her with. Will she ever recognize who she is really falling in love with? Set during the reign of Louis XIII, Edmond Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1897) was one of the great theatrical successes of its time and remains as popular today for its dramatic power and, above all, for its good-natured, passionate and swashbuckling hero."--Jacket
