It is also among the earliest manuscripts to employ the expanding palette and painterly modelling of draperies first observed in Parisian manuscripts in the s. Despite being damaged in a flood in the midth century, this manuscript played an important role in the renewed appreciation for medieval art during the Gothic Revival. He used it for teaching and gave away some of its leaves in order to educate and inspire others about Gothic art.

Four main artists painted the miniatures and historiated initials, each working on a separate part of the manuscript. At least four assistants provided the ornamentation throughout. The two manuscripts were made in tandem. They share size, page layout, style and heraldic ornament as well as texts and images for the Calendar and the Psalms.
None of the illuminators involved in them have been identified in other volumes. The manuscript was made for a female member of the French royal family and was still in the royal collection during the reign of Charles V By the 19th century it belonged to the London dealer John Boykett Jarman and suffered water damage when his collection was flooded in It was purchased from him for the Fitzwilliam Museum with subscriptions from members of Cambridge University in From the beginning I was uncertain but prevailingly seduced by the sometimes turbulently translated and sometimes soul caressing prose.
I seemed to slip into her abstract but hypnotic rhythm around half way and then lost myself in the miasma of sensual whispers that guide the narrative in. This is the most poetic text I have read of late and the i "Encountering you, I found sense in my abyss". This is the most poetic text I have read of late and the intensity of the relationship was captivating. I lost a sense of distinction between both girls characters but I think that added to the trance-like nature of their entangled lives.
I just adored this. I am saddened to think such a craftily constructed literary experience was ever a 'banned book' because of erotic homosexual content. Totally boring. It is a short book pages for my French Kindle edition but it was so long to finish it. I am really disappointed because this wasn't what I expected.
It is well written but it's always the same thing, I swear! I am just relieved to be done with this book. This is an excerpt of a longer work that was excised out of fear of a scandal. Pages and pages of two schoolgirls having sex. Pretty much everywhere. At some points the language is powerful, but at others, head-scratching, and the dialogue drove me insane. Shall we get dressed? Not a bun. There was someone there.

May 28, Sarah Crawford rated it it was amazing. The first version is paperback, 96 pages, This edition has 8 pages of photos from the movies.
The text is divided into chapters. The newer version is also paperback. It's pages long. There are no photos.

They fall in love and manage to find a way to have a sexual relationship despite all the other The first version is paperback, 96 pages, They fall in love and manage to find a way to have a sexual relationship despite all the other people in the school. The books devote a lot of their time to the sexual relationship. They do have problems but their relationship, both love and sexual, does seem to survive but something happens suddenly that ends everything.
A movie was made from the book and the movie was quite good. There's a lot in the section on censorship of the book and how it was originally to be part of another book but was removed by the publisher. The story is highly sexual but it's also very focused on the feelings of the two girls. The language in the edition is a little flowerly for me. The edition is translated by someone else and the language is much more realistic.

Nous cessions, nous recommencions. Violette Leduc has a very poetic pen and happens to make us live through her lines passionate love that devours two teenage girls.. Jun 01, Sara rated it really liked it. Her work was censored for years and she struggled throughout her life to build a readership despite receiving support from de Beauvoir and other prominent writers of her day. This alone means her work deserves your attention. Unfortunately I could only get this edition. It is just a part of what should have been published in as part of "Ravages". Censorship forced Leduc to cut some pages!!
I find the translation a little wanting. Interested readers should forgo this partial publication and get the full text, which was published in Very sensual, and highly metaphoric, almost unpenetrably so. And I would guess that's a good thing. Jun 27, Nmdrew rated it liked it.
Beautiful extended metaphor concerning young love and sexual awakening between two young girls. May be difficult for some readers; not typical type of language familiar to modern readers. Definitely worth a look despite this fact. Nov 26, Kat rated it it was amazing.
Definitely a book to make you blush. When lust masquerades as love, a self-aware, cynical adolescent romance, the kind of book perhaps best read aloud at night to a lover in bed and not around your family at thanksgiving, which was my mistake. Apr 07, Brook rated it really liked it. This book is a teenage fever dream of romance, lust, and passion. It's adorable at time, intense and unfathomable at others. This kind of book washes over you and leaves you saying, "what was that? Poetic and fascinating, although definitely lacking in plot. It's hard to imagine this novella being written although not published at the same time as lesbian pulp like the Beebo Brinker novels or The Price of Salt.
The writing and imagery are gorgeous and indulgent, in a good way. Sep 17, Sarah rated it it was amazing. Beautiful, visceral, deeply erotic, haunting, tragic. Feb 26, Liz rated it it was ok Shelves: emilybooks , fiction. Hot lesbian French schoolgirl sex anyone? Not really my cup of tea.
This book is basically sex scene I probably just found another wonderful french woman that knows perfectly how to write about sex and sexuality, make you dream while reading. A beautiful rough gem :D. Ugh, so wildly decadent. I wish this had fallen into my hands as a teen. It would've been the perfect fodder. Sep 15, Anchea Anchea rated it really liked it.
