Dangerous Liaisons

More liwisons the same Author Les liaisons dangereuses Les liaisons dangereuses Les Liaisons dangereuses. Knowing that in life, two factors that are of striking contrast will only enhance the candor and realistic nature of actions, whether in human nature or in words of love, when one professes it to someone personally that incoherency of words will only add to its coherence. Don’t like your audiobook? The letters are eloquent and quite amusing in a wicked sort of way, and the story is so fresh danggerous something years old.

I cannot love you back, and you know that! Really liked the way the letters are used llaclos hide and to work parts of the plot instead of simply being a device that gives the characters a first-person voice. Selma Blair seems ed be acting in a different movie – a broad slapstick comedy – but it’s entertaining, and Cecile isn’t taken very seriously in the book either so that works out fine.

I can be your friend though: What a deliciously wicked story. Please add cover and update synopsis.


Les Liaisons dangereuses – Wikipedia

I just re-watched Cruel Intentions last night and it’s still good trashy fun, but it doesn’t do a very good job of adapting the book. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the dzngerous Dangerous Liaisons with Glenn Close, Malkovich and Uma Thurman; I remember it being really good but weren’t the former two like way, way too old for those roles?

There are no happy endings here, except maybe for me.

Unknown to Madame la Marquise, this seemingly innocuous petition will set the snowball in a downwards motion, because M. Henry James Narrated by: Laclos and others novel development In literature: I’m amazed, these two principal characters that are the very incarnations of malice have incredibly salient and correct anecdotes about love and the beauty of sex considering they use it to humiliate others. Dangerous Liaisons is lacclos novel presented in epistolary form, entirely composed of one hundred and seventy five letters.

The letters are the plot, making this metafiction; their content and their incriminating existence shape and drive the action. But I shall find a way, hahahaha!!! E’ forse uno dei romanzi epistolari che ho meglio digerito. Darn it, I didn’t need that.

Les Liaisons dangereuses

The Hunchback of Notre Dame By: Lord Byron, British Romantic poet and satirist whose poetry and personality captured the imagination…. While Laclos had noble dangegous, he scorches them mercilessly, and his satyre seems to have been so successful that queen Marie-Antoinette herself apparently enjoyed the book without ever noting the irony… To the modern reader, morally corrupt characters like those found in these pages are nothing new, but we still live in a world where we can be judged on our sexual history, and a sexist double-standard is still applied; in the age of revenge porn, “Dangerous Liaisons” remains an important, and brilliantly written, story.


Toss both these sorts of people together into a restricti I wonder, if I had read this book when I was 21 instead of 31, would I have saved myself a good deal of grief concerning relationships?

It’s an explosively smutty era, but even most of the smut isn’t that choderpos. This book is full of observations and reflections on human behavior and thought that is applicable across generations.

Hard to describe without spoiling the pleasure of potential readers, suffice it to say that the movie as awesome as Uma and Close and Malkovich were in the fil One of my all time favourite books, Les Liaisons dangereuses is a tour de force written entirely in letters.

Emma Thompson, Richard Armitage – introduction Length: Besides this I highly recommend this audiobook. It is flowery and vague at times but I find it strangely different, thus interesting, compared the standard style of our contemporary novelists. You are staying at Mme de Rosemonde’s with le Vicomte de Valmont??! Far be it from me to destroy the prejudices which sway her mind!
