The age of conversation by Benedetta Craveri( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, between the reign of Louis XIII and the Revolution, the French nobility of the ancien regime turned their energies to developing the art of sociability, a refined code of manners, and an ideal of gallant, spirited conversation that became a model for social and intellectual life. Benedetta Craveri's history of this leisured, worldly society begins in the 1620s with the celebrated Blue Room of the Marquise de Rambouillet, one of the first in a long series of women who resided over conversations among nobles, writers, prelates, and diplomats. The women Craveri profiles played a significant part in the development of new literary forms such as the novel and the maxim, the codification of language, taste, and behavior, and debates over religion, philosophy, and science. Some, like Madame de Lafayette and Madame de Stael, were gifted writers themselves. Some were involved in the major events of their time, like the Grande Mademoiselle and the Duchesse de Longueville during the Fronde rebellion. Later, the Marquise de Lambert, Madame de Tencin, and Julie de Lespinasse opened their salons to intellectuals such as Fontenelle, Montesquieu, d'Alembert, and Diderot, thus helping to spread the ideas of the Enlightenment. In demonstrating the diversity of these women's accomplishments, Benedetta Craveri brings to life this brilliant, vanished culture that perfected the pleasure of living. In her pages, the world of La Rochefoucauld, Louis XIV, and Votaire, of Jansenism, preciosity, Mlle de Scudery's literary portraits, and Mme de Sevigne's letters, appears in all its fascinating complexity

Madame Du Deffand and her world by Benedetta Craveri( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Madame du Deffand (1696-1780) was a minor French aristocrat who, bored by her marriage, threw herself into scandalous relationships with leading noblemen, including the French Regent. She later re-invented herself as a highly successful salonniere, her salon being frequented by leading thinkers of the day. She also maintained very witty, perceptive correspondences with Voltaire (whose letters back are full expositions of his philosophy) and later with Horace Walpole with whom she fell deeply in love, much to his shock. -- from http://www.amazon.com (Jan. 23, 2014)
The house : a novel by Teresa Waugh( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1945. The war is over, veteran Sydney Otterton is penniless and all that is left is Cranfield, the dilapidated family pile. His terrifying mother has taken everything else and don't think for a minute she will stop at that ... Sydney moves in with his beautiful wife, three children and the faithful observant housekeeper, Annie. Mr Johnson, an ex-army sergeant, joins them at the house as does a series of unorthodox governesses, and a rather dubious butler. Once the elderly romantic Mr Rakowski, an eccentric historian delving into the family archives, unearths some dark secrets and a body is found in the lake, the stage is set for a classic comic melodrama:a brilliant post-war period piece with all the conventions of a murder mystery. The House is an inventive, intriguing and humorous novel which evolves through the eyes of four characters who narrate the events in a variety of formats - from letters and diaries to academic notes. With touches reminiscent of Wilkie Collins and Oscar Wilde this is a classic novel with a contemporary twist
