The Princesse de Cleves (Oxford Worlds Classics) by Madame de Lafayette

Poised between the fading world of chivalric romance and a new psychological realism, Madame de Lafayettes novel of passion and self-deception marks a turning point in the history of the novel. When it first appeared anonymously in 1678--in the heyday of French classicism--it aroused fiercecontroversy among critics and readers, particularly for the extraordinary confession which forms the climax of the story. It is now regarded as a landmark in the history of womens writing. In this entirely new translation, The Princesse de Cleves is accompanied by two shorter works alsoattributed to Mme de Lafayette, The Princesse de Montpensier and The Comtesse de Tende.
