Drama and history combine in this 17th century story of witchcraft and lust in a convent. "Fascinating, erudite and instilled with intellectual vitality." The Times Literary Supplement
Posted February 5, 2001
This book is more about human nature than the life of Urbain Grandier, but the setting of Mr. Grandier's life provides no better fodder for such a discourse. Huxley enlightens us on the subject of man through the best medium possible: sarcasm. And the sarcasm's subtleties make it all the more humorous. The Devils of Loudun is no easy read, but for the interested, it is an outstanding compilation. I would strongly recommend it for any student (professional or otherwise) of philosophy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
