Clarissa, mon miroir - Yves Cazaux Summary

Un homme de quarante-sept ans écrit dans la hâte et la fièvre le récit d’un amour de six semaines. Un amour dont la brièveté tragique l’a initié à bien des choses. En voulant faire revivre la femme qu’il a perdue, c’est lui-même en réalité qu’il découvre : un être que sans cela il n’aurait jamais connu ! Cet amour très charnel apparaîtra d’autant plus passionné, sous la plume du récitant, qu’il ne peut plus jamais se couvrir de cendres. Si celui qui l’a vécu le place au rang des mythes, il n’a pas à s’en excuser. Il va mourir... Ce qu’il cherchait sans en avoir conscience lui a peut-être été révélé : la connaissance, l’unité de l’univers, la permanence de l’homme sous la multitude de ses mutations ; mais aussi l’origine de l’angoisse tapie dans le tissu de nos contradictions. Ce roman, le premier du grand historien qu’est Yves Cazaux, est un livre actuel, un très beau roman d’amour, mais aussi un hymne superbe à la nature – la montagne, les mélèzes, la pluie, la brume et la nuit — aux confins du Tyrol et de la Haute Bavière.

Clarissa et les femmes sans importance - Alicia Cameron Summary

En Angleterre, sous la Régence, l’Académie pour jeunes filles de madame Thorne doit fermer ses portes en raison de la mort de la mère de Clarissa, madame Thorne, survenue un an plus tôt. Voilà qui laisse cette jeune femme de dix-huit ans et ses trois amies, toutes enseignantes à l’Académie, sans autre choix que de retourner auprès de leur famille comme ces parentes pauvres, ces femmes sans importance qui doivent se résoudre à obéir au doigt et à l’œil à tous ceux qui les entourent, sans espoir d’une vie meilleure. Toutefois, Clarissa vient tout juste d’hériter d’Ashcroft, un grand domaine malheureusement fort négligé, et elle offre à ses compagnes une autre solution : s’enfuir avec elle vers une vie d’indépendance et d’aventure. Elles devront remettre le domaine en état avec somme toute peu d’argent et aucune expérience. La raisonnable mademoiselle Micklethwaite, l’infatigable romantique mademoiselle Appleby et la sublime Oriana Petersham peuvent-elles tromper leur destin ? Pour veiller au bien-être de cette énergique, mais impulsive Clarissa, elles devront au moins tenter leur chance. Il va sans dire que leurs parents ont d’autres plans pour elles... Une rencontre avec le comte de Grandiston et son compagnon, un soupirant de la divine Oriana, sur la route lancera une série d’événements hilarants. Peut-être que l’amour se mêlera également à l’aventure pour ces dames...

Clarissa - An Abridged Edition - Samuel Richardson Summary

This classic novel tells the story, in letters, of the beautiful and virtuous Clarissa Harlowe’s pursuit by the brilliant, unscrupulous rake Robert Lovelace. The epistolary structure allows Richardson to create layered and fully realized characters, as well as an intriguing uncertainty about the reliability of the various “narrators.” Clarissa emerges as a heroine at once rational and passionate, self-sacrificing and defiant, and her story has gripped readers since the novel’s first publication in 1747–48. This new abridgment is designed to retain the novel’s rich characterizations and relationships, and reproduces individual letters in their entirety whenever possible. This Broadview Edition provides a uniquely accessible entry point for readers, while retaining much of the powerful reading experience of the complete novel.

Clarissa Harlowe V2 - Samuel Richardson Summary

Clarissa Harlowe, the tragic heroine of Clarissa, is a beautiful and virtuous young lady whose family has become wealthy only recently and now desires to become part of the aristocracy. Their original plan was to concentrate the wealth and lands of the Harlowes into the possession of Clarissa's brother James Harlowe, whose wealth and political power will lead to his being granted a title. Clarissa's grandfather leaves her a substantial piece of property upon his death, and a new route to the nobility opens through Clarissa marrying Robert Lovelace, heir to an earldom. James's response is to provoke a duel with Lovelace, who is seen thereafter as the family's enemy. James also proposes that Clarissa marry Roger Solmes, who is willing to trade properties with James to concentrate James's holdings and speed his becoming Lord Harlowe. The family agrees and attempts to force Clarissa to marry Solmes, whom she finds physically disgusting as well as boorish. Desperate to remain free, she begins a correspondence with Lovelace. When her family's campaign to force her marriage reaches its height, Lovelace tricks her into eloping with him. Joseph Leman, the Harlowes' servant, shouts and makes noise so it may seem like the family has awoken and discovered that Clarissa and Lovelace are about to run away. Frightened of the possible aftermath, Clarissa leaves with Lovelace but becomes his prisoner for many months. She is kept at many lodgings and even a brothel, where the women are disguised as high-class ladies by Lovelace himself. She refuses to marry him on many occasions, longing to live by herself in peace. She eventually runs away but Lovelace finds her and tricks her into returning to the brothel. Lovelace intends to marry Clarissa to avenge her family's treatment of him and wants to possess her body as well as her mind. He believes if she loses her virtue, she will be forced to marry him on any terms. As he is more and more impressed by Clarissa, he finds it difficult to believe that virtuous women do not exist. The pressure he finds himself under, combined with his growing passion for Clarissa, drives him to extremes and eventually he rapes her by drugging her. Through this action, Clarissa must accept and marry Lovelace. It is suspected that Mrs. Sinclair (the brothel manager) and the other prostitutes assist Lovelace during the rape. Lovelace's action backfires and Clarissa is ever more adamantly opposed to marrying a vile and corrupt individual like Lovelace. Eventually, Clarissa manages to escape from the brothel but Lovelace finds her and by deception manages to get her back to the brothel. She escapes a second time, is jailed for a few days following a charge by the brothel owner for unpaid bills, is released and finds sanctuary with a shopkeeper and his wife. She lives in constant fear of again being accosted by Lovelace who, through one of his close associates and also a libertine – John Belford – as well as through his own family members, continues to offer her marriage, to which she is determined not to accede. She becomes dangerously ill due to the mental duress. As her illness progresses, she and John Belford become friends and she appoints him the executor of her will. She is dying and is determined to accept it and proceeds to get all her affairs in order. Belford is amazed at the way Clarissa handles her approaching death and laments what Lovelace has done. In one of the many letters sent to Lovelace he writes "if the divine Clarissa asks me to slit thy throat, Lovelace, I shall do it in an instance." Eventually, surrounded by strangers and her cousin Col. Morden, Clarissa dies in the full consciousness of her virtue and trusting in a better life after death. Belford manages Clarissa's will and ensures that all her articles and money go into the hands of the individuals she desires should receive them. Lovelace departs for Europe and his correspondence with his friend Belford continues. During their correspondence Lovelace learns that Col. Morden has suggested he might seek out Lovelace and demand satisfaction on behalf of his cousin. He responds that he is not able to accept threats against himself and arranges an encounter with Col. Morden. They meet in Munich and arrange a duel. The duel takes place, both are injured, Morden slightly, but Lovelace dies of his injuries the following day. Before dying he says "let this expiate!" Clarissa's relatives finally realise the misery they have caused but discover that they are too late and Clarissa has already died. The story ends with an account of the fate of the other characters.

Clarissa - Samuel Richardson Summary

This is Volume 2 of Samuel Richardson's classic novel; Clarissa. Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace and places herself under his protection. Lovelace, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome and increasingly brutal sexual advances. And yet, Clarissa finds his charm alluring, her scrupulous sense of virtue tinged with unconfessed desire. Told through a complex series of interweaving letters, Clarissa is a richly ambiguous study of a fatally attracted couple and a work of astonishing power and immediacy. A huge success when it first appeared in 1747, it remains one of the greatest of all novels.
