Overview

One of the most popular works of the eighteenth century, Lettres d'une P ruvienne appeared in more than 130 editions, reprints, and translations during the hundred years following its publi cation in 1747.

Graffigny's brilliant novel offered a bold critique of French society, delivered one of the most vehement feminist protests in eighteenth-century literature, and announced—fourteen years before Rousseau's Julie, or the New Eloise—the Romantic tradition in French literature.
