The flap copy calls this a Romantic novel in every sense of the word, which it is it s a romance, a love story, and also a story set in the Romantic era, with protagonists who are part of the French Romantic literary musical dramatic scene It s the story of Marceline Desbordes Val, first an actress, then a poet, and it s the story of her loves her ill fated affairs, her marriage, and her great love for the writer Henri de Latouche It moves back and forth in time, starting in 1821 and moving ahead but also looking back, in alternating chapters, at Marceline s youth and early adulthood, and it has its poetic moments, but it s mostly straight first person narration, which I found less compelling than I thought it d be.
Not that I Not impressed.
