"Vous aviez tort de dire qu'il n'y avait point de serpent caché sous ces fleurs, car j'en ai trouvé un, qui est tout à fait joli, et pourtant tout à fait redoutable", dit Plotine en découvrant un fil d'or dissimulé dans une innocente couronne de fleurs. De même que le galant Brutus, figure lui-même de l'esprit et de la valeur héroïque cachés sous l'apparente stupidité, invite le lecteur à la découverte du sens caché des bagatelles, l'enjouée Plotine livre dans cette seconde partie de la Clélie un code d'écriture et de lecture de la littérature mondaine, qui complète la conversation sur les clefs et éclaire le fonctionnement de l'allégorie précieuse. Dans cette perspective, et en vertu du principe de l'analogie des grandes et des petites choses, tout discours galant peut apparaître comme un discours crypté qui, sous couvert du badinage et de la convention langagière, laisse au lecteur et surtout à la lectrice la liberté de "détourner les choses", c'est-à-dire admet la lecture innocente de l'amour tendre et de l'amitié aussi bien que celle de la sincérité ou même de la violence."--Page 4 of cover

Historiae by Quintus Curtius Rufus( Book )

6 editions published between 1653 and 1774 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Q. Curtius Rufus (1st century CE) is one of the most important historians of Alexander the Great. However, existing editions in use today are philologically unsatisfactory for a number of reasons, and the aim of this work is to present a sounder text. This edition is the first to pay adequate attention to the second family of manuscripts, as well as placing the conjectures of the respective philologists in their correct context."--Publisher's website
