Dominique by Eugène Fromentin( Book )

19 editions published between 1961 and 1966 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Fromentin's masterpiece which first appeared in 1862. The freshness of its landscapes alone is enchanting, but it is most remarkable as a sober analysis of delirious passion. While still at school Dominique de Bray falls in love with Madeleine d'Orsel, who is a few years older than him. She discovers that he loves her only after her marriage, and elects to cure him. Their moral distress rises to a climax when she falls in love herself. The book offers a vision of chastity and pain which hints at the dark side of life, suggesting that there are other ends to existence besides mere happiness

Chez Eugène Fromentin, la primauté de l'Orient se fait sentir dans tout son ¶uvre peint et dans ses écrits de voyage. Né à La Rochelle, il avait, dès son enfance, formé un attachement aux grandes lignes fuyantes de l'horizon atlantique, perspective qui devait le préparer à affronter cette autre immensité qui lui semblait comme la mer, moins la couleur, c'est-à-dire le désert. Fromentin contemple le monde islamique avec une discrétion absolue, rassemblant d'amples renseignements anthropologiques et linguistiques, sans forcément s'en servir dans son ¶uvre. Sa manière de voir se rattache aux lieux, aux ambiances, aux atmosphères, plutôt qu'aux événements dramatiques

"Written in French in the late forties before Waiting for Godot, Eleutheria is about a young man at odds with his middle-class family, living alone in a bedsit and refusing to take part in 'normal' life while accepting handouts from his mother. Often richly comic, it contains elements of high farce and draws on the traditions of French boulevard comedy and melodrama."--Jacket

4 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
