If you also teach Renaissance literature, please visit my new site on teaching Marguerite de Navarre:

Teaching Marguerite de Navarre

Marina Vlady présente le film, La Princesse de Clèves, en octobre 2015:

Les nouveautés:

*I recently presented this website at the AATF conference in Saguenay, Quebec.

If you learned about this site at the conference, I would be delighted to hear any ideas, feedback, or suggestions on improving the site.  Thank you!

*I recently presented this website at the Society for Interdisciplinary French Seventeenth-Century Studies conference in London, Ontario.


If you learned about this site at the conference, I would be delighted to hear any ideas, feedback, or suggestions on improving the site.  Thank you!

*This summer I added a page on teaching La Princesse de Clèves with Marguerite de Navarre’s Heptaméron. I will continue to add to this particular page as new resources become available…please check back often.

*Anatomie d’une fascination: This March I attended an incredible conference in Paris dedicated uniquely to La Princesse de Clèves.  The conference brought together renowned scholars as well as musicians, actors, and writers.  Please click below for the link to the program and keep an eye out for the proceedings which will be published sometime next year.  I have no doubt that this will be a valuable contribution to the scholarship.


*La Bibliothèque de la Pléiade édition of Madame de Lafayette’s complete works is finally out…I highly recommend it!

http://www.franceinter.fr/emission-la-marche-de-l-histoire-la-princesse-de-cleves (I strongly recommend this France Inter program with a discussion by Camille Esmein-Sarrazin about the new edition and other aspects of La Princesse de Clèves)

I also recommend the article in Le Parisien about the new Pléiade edition as well as the new 2014/15 section on the Sarkozy & La Princesse page of this blog.  I have links to recent articles that involve Sarkozy and this new edition of Lafayette’s work.


*If you enjoy this website and you also teach other early modern women writers like Marguerite de Navarre, please visit my websites on teaching the Heptaméron and Marguerite de Roberval:
