A delightfully illustrated literary anthology that explores the fantasies, seductions, and intrigues of the eighteenth-century French lover This sumptuous volume presents more than eighty selections from eighteenth-century French literature, each concerning some facet of the game of love as practiced by the libertine, or the freethinking aristocratic hedonist, a type that flourished--not least in literature--in the declining years of the Ancien Regime. These pieces, which include fiction, drama, verse, essays, and letters, are the work of some sixty writers, both familiar--such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and, of course, the Marquis de Sade--and lesser-known. Each selection is illustrated by well-chosen period artworks, many rarely seen, by Watteau, Boucher, Fragonard, and numerous others. Racy, thought-provoking, and a treat for the eyes, The Libertine is the perfect gift for litterateurs, art lovers, roues, and coquettes.
