The book was first thought to be comprised of genuine letters—passionate love letters—later ascribed to a historical 17th-century Franciscan nun named Marianna Alcoforado. Twentieth-century scholarship revealed that the novel was actually authored by Gabriel-Joseph de la Vergne, Comte de Guilleragues, well after the publication of this particular edition, which still presumes authorship by the love-lorn Marianna.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Unlock the more straightforward side of Letters of a Portuguese Nun with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of Letters of a Portuguese Nun by Gabriel de Guilleragues, which was originally published in 1669 in the guise of a collection of five genuine letters which had been written in Portuguese and then translated into French. Although completely anonymous, the letters are purportedly written by a young Portuguese nun and addressed to the object of her affections, a French soldier who seduced her and then abandoned her, but whom she still loves passionately. The letters were sensationally popular, but in the following centuries expert opinion gradually came to the consensus that they were in fact a work of fiction, and that Gabriel de Guilleragues, a diplomat who also served as the French ambassador to the Ottoman court, was probably the author.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: These letters were first published anonymously in 1669. Ostensibly they were translations into French of five love letters written by a nun, cloistered in a provincial Portuguese convent, to a French officer who had loved her and left her. More than a hundred years later the nun was identified as Mariana Alfocorado, a gentlewoman who had lived in the Franciscan convent of Beja. The officer was thought to be No l Bouton de Chamilly who went to Portugal in 1663 to support the Portuguese in their war against the Spanish. Recently scholars have identified the author as the Vicomte de Guilleragues, a nobleman at Louis XIV's court, who wrote them as a literary exercise. The letters display a remarkable psychological insight into the mind of a woman in love, attesting to a slow but crucial development of self-awareness and a beautifully controlled treatment of passion on the edge of hysteria.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: In the mid 1600s, a 26-year-old nun and a French officer fell in love - an affair that would destroy them if it were discovered. It was as brief as it was intense, but the French man was pressured to abandon her. The nun, Mariana, never knew of his sacrifice and wrote him letters so raw in their pain and eloquent in their passion that they became an instant success across Europe when they were published in 1669. The debate over the provenance of these letters has waged for hundreds of years, but their beauty and intensity remain.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: "This study describes and analyzes cultural and literary mythology surrounding the figure of the seventeenth-century nun Mariana Alcoforado as the presumed author of the celebrated collection of love letters that originally appeared in 1669 in French under the title of Lettres portugaises (known in their many English editions as Portuguese Letters or Letters of a Portuguese Nun). Ostensibly written by a nun cloistered in a provincial Portuguese convent to her departed lover, an officer in the French army, they are nowadays generally reputed to have been a literary fake authored by a seventeenth-century French writer." "The Portuguese Nun describes the foundation and development of the myth of Soror Mariana and illuminates its continuing investment in the fabrication, by the country's cultural elite, of a shared national imagination. It examines the process of national reappropriation of the text from the Romantic period until its latest, postmodern manifestations exemplified most remarkably by the feminist manifesto Novas Cartas Portuguesas [New Portuguese Letters]. From its first "retranslations" into Portuguese in the early nineteenth century, this slim collection of five love letters has retained its status of a somewhat improbable textual support for one of Portugal's most persistently cultivated cultural fictions."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Excerpt from Letters From a Portuguese Nun to an Officer in the French Army: Being a Reproduction of the Edition of 1817 Served as captain of horse under the Marshal de Schomberg. During the leisure which his military avocations permitted, he became enamoured of Marianne, a young Portuguese nun or canoness, in whom he excited a passion still more violent than what he felt himself. He was not however an Adonis, such as the gallant court of Louis XIV. Sent into the different countries of Europe to enslave the fair, and swell the number and spe cies of its conquests. He possessed not the talents or accomplishments of Grammont, nor the graces and wit of Hamilton. He resembled rather a Hercules in strength and corpulence, if we may trust the portrait which St. Simon has left us of him He was.
