The age of conversation by Benedetta Craveri( Book )
32 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 758 libraries worldwide
In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, between the reign of Louis XIII and the Revolution, the French nobility of the ancien regime turned their energies to developing the art of sociability, a refined code of manners, and an ideal of gallant, spirited conversation that became a model for social and intellectual life. Benedetta Craveri's history of this leisured, worldly society begins in the 1620s with the celebrated Blue Room of the Marquise de Rambouillet, one of the first in a long series of women who resided over conversations among nobles, writers, prelates, and diplomats. The women Craveri profiles played a significant part in the development of new literary forms such as the novel and the maxim, the codification of language, taste, and behavior, and debates over religion, philosophy, and science. Some, like Madame de Lafayette and Madame de Stael, were gifted writers themselves. Some were involved in the major events of their time, like the Grande Mademoiselle and the Duchesse de Longueville during the Fronde rebellion. Later, the Marquise de Lambert, Madame de Tencin, and Julie de Lespinasse opened their salons to intellectuals such as Fontenelle, Montesquieu, d'Alembert, and Diderot, thus helping to spread the ideas of the Enlightenment. In demonstrating the diversity of these women's accomplishments, Benedetta Craveri brings to life this brilliant, vanished culture that perfected the pleasure of living. In her pages, the world of La Rochefoucauld, Louis XIV, and Votaire, of Jansenism, preciosity, Mlle de Scudery's literary portraits, and Mme de Sevigne's letters, appears in all its fascinating complexity
Madame Du Deffand and her world by Benedetta Craveri( Book )
48 editions published between 1982 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 730 libraries worldwide
Madame du Deffand (1696-1780) was a minor French aristocrat who, bored by her marriage, threw herself into scandalous relationships with leading noblemen, including the French Regent. She later re-invented herself as a highly successful salonniere, her salon being frequented by leading thinkers of the day. She also maintained very witty, perceptive correspondences with Voltaire (whose letters back are full expositions of his philosophy) and later with Horace Walpole with whom she fell deeply in love, much to his shock. -- from http://www.amazon.com (Jan. 23, 2014)
Königinnen und Mätressen : die Macht der Frauen - von Katharina de' Medici bis Marie Antoinette by Benedetta Craveri( Book )
34 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 169 libraries worldwide
Benedetta Craveri nos cuenta la historia de mujeres como Gabrielle d;Estrées o Madame du Barry, Ana de Austria o María Antonieta, amantes y reinas que convirtieron su supuesta debilidad en un instrumento de dominio.Durante siglos se ha predicado que confiar a una mujer cualquier responsabilidad de gobierno sería algo que repugnaría a la naturaleza [...], un trastocamiento del recto orden y de todo principio de justicia . Sin embargo, especialmente en la Francia del Antiguo Régimen, las mujeres se han arrogado ese poder, haciendo vanas en la práctica las leyes y las costumbres que se lo negaban. La más destacada de todas fue Catalina de Médicis, que durante treinta años logró mantener intacta la autoridad real. Pero junto a las reinas ;y a menudo al mismo tiempo y en antagonismo con ellas; otras mujeres ejercieron, en los siglos anteriores a la Revolución, una enorme influencia sobre los equilibrios políticos internos y externos de la monarquía francesa: las poderosísimas amantes reales, quienes tuvieron que aprender a utilizar la astucia, a corromper, a castigar... y a salir de escena en el momento justo

"Ourika, una niña senegalesa condenada a la esclavitud y la barberie, es salvada por un piadoso aristócrata que la traslada a Francia donde recibe una refinada educación al cuidado de Madame de B. La conciencia de su color de piel supone un conflicto insalvable para la mentalidad y los modales propios de una sociedad que jamás le perdonará semejante pecado original. Ourika queda así atrapada entre un mundo que la rechaza y otro al que ya nunca podrá regresar. El trasfondo histórico de su tragedia se desarrolla en los convulsos años previos a la Revolución Francesa que, pese a sus promesas de libertad, igualdad y fraternidad, no consigue de facto abolir los prejuicios y diferencias que condenan a Ourika a un exilio emocional involuntario"--Back cover flap
