John Calder, 1955, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Good
Translated by Paul Bernard Thomas with the collaboration of Bayard Quincy Morgan. Inspired by the suicides of two real-life sweethearts, this impassioned novel evokes the overwhelming beauty of young love and nature but is ultimately pessimistic about the possibility of such beauty surviving in the real world. Although it attracted controversy when it was first published in 1856, this timeless story is a fine example of 19th-century poetic realism. 96 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Dust jacket has rubbing and small tears to edges and corners and associated wear. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
