5.0 étoiles sur 5 Translation of a French classic. 19 mars 2013

Talk about tragic love stories. This is one of the all-time greats. I originally read this in French which was a challenge to say the least. Oddly enough, it's pretty hard to read in English. I don't know why--maybe the style of writing. The translation is very good though, so I don't blame that. Nevertheless, once the action picks up the story kind of carries you along and the words don't get in the way. Basic story is guy meets girl, falls hard and then they are separated and reunited several times throughout the tale. He falls harder each time. Think "Body Heat" or "Casablanca" where the guy is just caught up with love and beauty. This story is so great it has become a classic opera as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Was the book as good as the movie (or opera in this case)? 14 mai 2012

If you've ever watched Massenet's "Manon" or Puccini's "Manon Lescault" (or any of the other operas based on this book), it's a special pleasure to learn where the story originated. For a novel from a very early time period for literature (early 18th century), it has a well-constructed plot, fully-developed characters and a smooth translation. So the answer to the title of this review's question is a resounding "Yes"!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Tragic 1700's French Love Story 20 juin 2013
Par L. M. Keefer - Publié sur
I read this book in French class some years ago and was just grateful that it was fairly simple enough to translate and follow the plot. This was written before novels had reached a kind of status, a professor at Brown University told us in a Coursera lecture.

It seems the author was raising the question can that kind of pure, intense first love you encounter survive in the corrupt Old World of Europe or in the more supposedly innocent New World of America in the area of New Orleans where the lovers ultimately end up?

The author seems to suggest that no, love needs society's support and sanction to survive. If you don't have money, and can't support yourselves, love is not going to flourish. In this novel, the female love interest has to resort to prostitution to survive. But she tells her smitten young lover, what matters is if the heart is faithful even if she doesn't have the luxury of having her body be faithful to him.

The professor told us this wasn't a story of a family feud keeping lovers apart as in ROMEO AND JULIET, but their class system keeping them apart. He was of a more gentleman class, she was of the lower class. At the tender age of 18, he didn't have the means yet to support them and was destined for the ministry as the second son.

You do wonder what the author was trying to say in this novel - that love needs more than love to flourish? I think I enjoyed this story more in French than in English. But for one of the early forms of novels, it is surprisingly modern. However, it's more action and emotion, and not as nuanced as modern novels. You can see how it would be an excellent plot for an opera.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic love story that inspired operas, plays and movies 20 mars 2013
Par F. Orion Pozo - Publié sur

Manon Lescaut is a story of a young man, the Chevalier des Grieux, and his lover, Manon Lescaut. Set in the year 1721 and first published in 1731, this story of uninhibited love and its dire consequences was both quickly banned and widely read. The novel begins when a narrator, spending the night in a small town, who sees the townspeople gathered around two large wagons loaded with women criminals who are being banished to the colony of New Orleans. Amongst this "frail sisterhood" sits Manon "whose whole air and figure seemed so ill-suited to her present condition, that under other circumstances I should not have hesitated to pronounce her a person of high birth. Her excessive grief, and even the wretchedness of her attire, detracted so little from her surpassing beauty... " Asking one of the guards about this rare beauty, the guard points to a man who has followed them from Paris, crying all the way and says that he knows her. Asked about Manon, the despondent stranger replies that he is completely in love with her and having failed at all attempts to free her, he plans to follow her to the ends of the Earth. Seeing that the stranger has no money and is in desperate need, the narrator gives him 4 gold louis-d'ors and 2 more to the lead guard, and goes on his way.

Two years later he again sees the young man, poorly dressed and walking the street of Calais, having just returned from America. Greeting him and learning he is still destitute, the narrator offers him a room for the night at the inn where he is staying. That night the stranger, who is the Chevalier des Grieux, tells the story of his tragic three year love affair with the beautiful and charming Manon Lescaut.

Manon is poor but beautiful and the 17 year old Chevalier's love for her is instantaneous and intense. He must have her, and runs off with her to Paris in spite of the disapproval of his father and brother. Losing his savings through various circumstances, he relies on the generosity of friends and his skill at gambling to support their existence. Manon, while she professes love for the Chevalier, uses her beauty and charm to attract the generosity of other men. Instead of her loose virtue turning him away, their mutual love keeps him faithful to her. Eventually they run into trouble with the law and he follows her into exile.

Told completely from his point of view, Manon's life and motives are at best poorly understood. We see her through the filter of 300 years, a translation into another language, and the eyes of a deeply infatuated young man. It is believed that the story is in part based upon an early love affair of the author Prevost.

Manon's story and the Chevalier's love for her has inspired several operas, and, 100 years later, the novel and play Camille by Alexandre Dumas. Both Manon and Camille have been made into movies again and again. I am glad that I have read the original version of this classic love story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Lamentable main character but a good read 16 février 2013

I had never heard of this book and was looking at possibly taking a course on Coursera where it was listed as one of the books for a literature course exploring relationships.

(Spoiler alert) I really didn't like the main character in the novel, a young man who was absolutely obsessed with Manon, his lover. She repeatedly cheats on him and treats him terribly and he just keeps coming back for more. That being said, I actually did find this behavior believable and an interesting portrayal of someone who just couldn't break his addiction to a beloved woman despite all evidence it would be better for him and that she didn't deserve his faithfulness and devotion.

The character development on his part was limited as he never really seemed to learn his lesson. Interestingly she changed at the end although it's unclear whether it was circumstances forcing that change or finally some development of virtue.

As always with a translated book you lose something in the translation but overall I felt this was a good effort and seemed generally free of errors or noticeable issues.
