"Poised between the fading world of chivalric romance and a new psychological realism, Madame de Lafayette's 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 fierce controversy among critics and readers, in particular for the extraordinary confession which forms the climax of the story. Having long been considered a classic, it is now regarded as a landmark in the history of women's writing." "In this new translation, The Princesse de Cleves is accompanied by two shorter works also attributed to Madame de Lafayette, The Princesse de Montpensier and The Comtesse de Tende.
