Dangerous Liaisons, Scandalous LettersBy
Well known for its exploration of seduction and revenge, the Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos caused a scandal from its first publication in 1782. Despite – or because of the scandal – the book was a top-seller. Since then, it stood the test of time. Combining eras, continents and people, the novel is adapted around the world. Marvelous tool for reflection on the female condition, social satire announcing the Revolution, remarkable work on the conflicting nature of love but also of the gender war, consecration of the power of the words, a libertine manual… Dangerous Liaisons is all of these at once.
