Sample text

Lastly, it will perhaps be pretty generally said that everything is good in its own place; and that, although, as a rule, the too polished style of the authors detracts from the charm of the letters of society, the carelessness of the present ones becomes a real fault and makes them insufferable when sent to the printer’s.

Louis reduces the power of the French nobility (represented here by Valmont and Merteuil), which had been a serious threat to the king and central authority. This conflict was settled by 1653, with Louis’s triumph in the Fronde, the civil wars that embroiled him and the nobility between 1648 and 1653. Louis built (1661-1670) his palace at Versailles and maintained a financially ruinous court to keep his nobles in check.

Twenty others can succeed and these as well as I (p. 19). Merteuil must use every possible argument—Valmont’s getting even with Gercourt, Valmont’s reputation as a Don Juan, even a renewal of her sexual liaison with Valmont—to convince her hesitant ally.
