A trip to the country by Henriette Julie de Castelnau Murat ( )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Popular with the worldly aristocracy, late seventeenth-century experimental novels like the Countess de Murat's Voyage de campagne (A Trip to the Country) were published in small format, widely circulated, and reprinted more frequently than any other type of fiction both in France and abroad. Murat's hybrid work, built around a humorous frame narrative, details a trip to a pristine country estate taken by seven Parisian aristocrats and contains interpolated examples of the period's most popular literary forms--including seven ghost stories, seven autobiographical anecdotes, one literary fairy tale, one rondeau, two gallant poems, two love letters, and eleven proverb comedies. In this translation of A Trip to the Country, editors Perry Gethner and Allison Stedman present the entire work in the English language for the first time. The editors follow the original 1699 edition as closely as possible to preserve the syntax, word choice, and other lively, readable qualities that were appreciated by the novel's first readers. Modern readers will value the editors' extensive footnotes to the text that offer additional definitions, historical referents, and notes on form and structure. An extensive introduction by Allison Stedman also draws connections between the late seventeenth-century experimental novel and the rise of the literary fairy-tale genre in France to provide a valuable context for students and scholars of the field. Gethner and Stedman offer an accessible and informative translation of A Trip to the Country that will appeal to students and teachers of fairy-tale studies and those interested in the history of French literature."--Publisher's website

8 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Madame de Murat fait partie de ces conteuses eclipsees par l'immense succes de leur contemporain, Charles Perrault. Or la pratique litteraire de ces femmes, a la fin du XVIIe siecle en France, constitue un veritable phenomene social, federant le public mondain des salons autour du conte de fees. Mais la comtesse de Murat avertit ses amies ecrivains : elles doivent etre des "fees mo dernes", ne s'occupant que de "grandes choses" et habitant des "palais enchantes". Elle-meme ecrit une quinzaine de contes, au moment ou la mode du genre bat son plein, dans les annees 1698 1699. N'hesitant pas a varier ses sources d'inspiration afin de renouveler le merveilleux, la conteuse puise dans les grandes epopees et les romans a succes de son epoque. Et s'il lui arrive d'e voquer des themes folkloriques, c'est pour mieux s'en éloigner. Les contes de Madame de Murat offrent en effet une certaine vision du "Grand Siecle", en lien avec l'actualite et la feerie de Versailles. Ils sont egalement l'occasion pour la comtesse, qui fut stigmatisee en raison des "desordres" de sa vie, de distiller ici ou la, en guise de morale, ses reflexions sur l'amour. C'es t a la lecture de ces histoires, qui constituent un veritable traite des passions, qu'invite le present ouvrage qui reunit pourla premiere fois l'ensemble des contes de Madame de Murat
