V. Marguerite : La Gar?onne

'29th March, Tuesday. ?La Gar?onne? V. Marguerite. 30th March, Wednesday. These last few days I have been reading Marguerite?s ?La Gar?onne?. I am disappointed. Instead of an exciting chronicle of debauchery, full of hints on sex-relationship, I find it simply a rather vigorous, but incurably sentimental treatise on Malthusianism. One or two of its scenes are realistic in the strictest sense, but for the rest, his heroine is a most romantic young lad who finishes up by falling in love properly and setting up in matrimony. But then I have always found the French sentimental.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Gerald Moore      Print: Book
