'The sweetness of her glance - or rather, my evil star already in its ascendant and drawing me to my ruin - did not allow me to hesitate for a moment'So begins the story of Manon Lescaut, a tale of passion and betrayal, of delinquency and misalliance, which moves from early eighteenth-century Paris - with its theatres, assemblies, and gaming-houses - via prison and deportation to a tragic denouement in the treeless wastes of Louisiana. It is oneof the great love stories, and also one of the most enigmatic: how reliable a witness is Des Grieux, Manon's lover, whose tale he narrates? Is Manon a thief and a whore, the image of love itself, or a thoroughly modern woman? Prevost is careful to leave the ambiguities unresolved, and to lay barethe disorders of passion.This new translation includes the vignette and eight illustrations that were approved by Prevost and first published in the edition of 1753.… (més)

An obsession

The story of an upper class young man, Chevalier Des Grieux, who falls in love with a lower class young man, Manon Lescaut. They run away without getting married, and Des Grieux discovers that Manon's love of luxury is greater than her desire to remain faithful. Manon has an affair with a wealthy lover, which bothers and irritates Des Grieux, although this causes him and Manon to deceive her lover and take some money which allows them to live in luxury before they are ruined. This plot is repeated three times, with each precipitation greater and with more lasting consequences than the previous one. The novel ends tragically and without much hope.

Everything we see is reported to us by Des Grieux, from his perspective. And he is a fool and constantly unable to break free of his feelings for Manon.

A bold story about what people are willing to do for love. Des Grieux's shift from an innocent and virtuous young man to a manipulator who cheats, exaggerates and works out to get what he wants, and does tricks to get money for himself and Manon while maintaining a view of himself as virtuous, makes him a complex character. Although he acknowledges his faults and occasionally admits to feeling guilty, he justifies this by stating that he does everything out of love or that this is his pitiful fate.

This novel takes us from Paris to Louisiana, following the ups and downs of the characters' troubled relationship with a hint of sordid realism. ( )

This is a book I would never have picked up if not for the fact that it is on the reading list of an online course I’ve just started. It is the story of the Chevalier Des Grieux, the second son of a wealthy, upper-class French family in the early 18th century. By purest chance he happens to meet the beautiful Manon Lescaut. She comes from a lower class and is on her way to join a convent. Des Grieux himself is destined for the priesthood, but the moment he spots Manon that idea goes out the window.

Unfortunately for him Manon isn’t exactly the most steadfast of lovers. Her fear of poverty is more than enough to send her seeking richer partners. Or so Des Grieux tells us. He, of course, never gives up but follows after her again and again attempting to win her to him forever.

I really disliked Des Grieux. He was such an idiot, and he never ever seemed to learn from his previous errors and missteps. It was the same story over and over again. As for Manon herself, well, the story was told from Des Grieux’s point of view so we never got to see what she thought or felt about anything. Or indeed her reasoning for her actions. All we have to go on is what the Chavalier tells us, and he is an admitted thief, pimp, and cheat. He might not describe himself in those words, not recognise that description as fitting him, but that is what he is.

In the context of the course I am doing it’ll be interesting to see the interpretation we are given for this. The course is entitled The Fiction of Relationship and there is plenty of fiction in the relationship between Des Grieux and Manon Lescaut. A perfect example in many ways.

1731 ist dieser Roman bereits erscheinen, also fast 300 Jahre alt. Das erscheint fast unglaublich, wenn man ihn liest. Natürlich sind die Umstände nicht mehr zeitgemäß, heute wäre es vermutlich keine große Sache, wenn sich zwei junge Leute verlieben. Aber die Geschichte selbst, die "amour fou", ist ja zeitlos: Eine schöne Frau mit allen Reizen und ein junger, dem Kloster versprochenener Adeliger verlieben sich bereits in sehr jungen Jahren und brennen zusammen durch. Das Geld geht aus, Manon ist nicht zuletzt aus finanziellen Gründen untreu. Der Roman leitet die Epoche der Empfindsamkeit ein, denn Chevalier des Grieux folgt nur seinem Herzen, was im Roman auch ausführlich geschildert wird. Gefühle stehen im Mittelpunkt. Das war damals neu und die Radikalität und Leidenschaft führten zum Verbot des Buches in Frankreich. Doch genau das liest sich immer noch aktuell, denn die Empfindsamkeit ist der Urgrund des heute noch vorherrschenden Gedankens, dass man seinem Herzen und seiner Liebe folgen soll, nicht der Vernunft. Insofern ist es folgerichtig, dass das Buch ein "Buch der 1000 Bücher" ist, es ist Ausdruck einer neuen Zeit. Erst 60 Jahre später kommt ja tatsächlich der Aufschwung des Bürgertums mit der französischen Revolution.
Auch heute noch lässt sich das Buch gut lesen. Es ist kurzweilig geschrieben und durchaus spannend. ( )

While well written both main characters are slightly annoying and spoiled ( )

If it is true that the assistance of Heaven is at every moment equal in strength to the force of the passions, then explain to me by what fateful influence we find ourselves suddenly swept far away from our duty, without being capable of the slightest resistance, and without feeling the slightest remorse.
It was one of those unique situations to which one can find nothing in one's experience that is even slightly similar. Such feelings cannot be explained to other people, because other people have no idea of them; and it is difficult enough to clarify them to oneself, since, being unique, they are unconnected to anything else in one's memory, and cannot even be compared with anything similar.
However, at the same time, as I claimed to hold the good things in life in such low esteem, I felt that I could have done with at least a small portion of them, so as to despise in even more sovereign a fashion the rest. Love is stronger that abundance, stronger than treasure and riches, but it does need help from them; and nothing is a greater cause of despair for a lover with any delicacy of feeling than seeing himself dragged down by this necessity to the level of the coarsest and basest souls.
