Ourika : the original French text by Claire de Durfort Duras( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in French and English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A best-seller in the 1820s, Ourika captured the attention of Duras's peers, including Stendhal, and became the subject of four contemporary plays. The work represents a number of firsts: the first novel set in Europe to have a black heroine, the first French literary work narrated by a black female protagonist, and, as John Fowles points out in the foreword to his translation, "the first serious attempt by a white novelist to enter a black mind." An inspiration for Fowles's acclaimed novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, Ourika will astonish and haunt modern readers

L'amante et l'amie : lettres inédites : 1804-1828 by François-René Chateaubriand( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chateaubriand has always known how to exploit his feminine attachments, which is confirmed by the unpublished correspondence of this volume adjacent to the Correspondance générale. With Delphine de Custine, Madame de Stael's friend, Chateaubriand lives a stormy and passionate affair; the letters of the lover exalt desire and sensuality. With Claire de Duras, an aristocratic friendship is formed. Woman of the world, as wife of the Duke of Duras, first gentleman of Louis XVIII, she is also a woman of letters, author of three novels-news ( Ourika , Edouard and Olivier). Madame de Duras holds a salon under the Restoration and will never stop supporting the literary and political ambitions of Chateaubriand, for whom she is a sister to sublimated incest.--Gallimard
