The Adventures of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

75 editions published between 1758 and 2009 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A romance based upon Telemachus's voyage in the Odyssey, with the intent to teach the skills and morals of an enlightened ruler. The Adventures of Telemachus is Bishop Fenelon's 1699 "mirror for princes," written especially for Duc de Burgogne, heir presumptive to Louis XIV. Both in its original French and its many translations, The Adventures of Telemachus was one of the most popular and revered works of the eighteenth century. During that time, more than ten English prose and poetry versions appeared

Telemachus, son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

33 editions published between 1800 and 1902 in English and French and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fénelon's Telemachus (1699) is, alongside Bossuet's Politics, the most important work of political theory of the grand siècle in France. It was also the most widely read work of the time, influencing Montesquieu and Rousseau in its attempt to combine monarchism with republican virtues. Fénelon tells of the moral and political education of Telemachus, young son of Ulysses, by his tutor Mentor (the goddess Minerva in disguise). Telemachus visits every corner of the Mediterranean world and learns patience, courage, modesty and simplicity, the qualities he will need when he succeeds Ulysses as King of Ithaca. It is the story of the transformation of an egoistic young man into a model ruler, and is meant (among other things) as a commentary on the bellicosity and luxuriousness of Louis XIV. The present English edition follows closely that of Tobias Smollett published in 1776
