A Book such as "Facets Of A Princess" runs the risk in these times of being politically correct revisionism. In this case an author due to the times could step forward and point out a few obvious things, that no one would want to be the first to say, without losing his career and personal reputation. In the meantime, I'd advise readers to drop any rounds of, "Hey has anybody else read La Princess de La Cleves?" First read "Facets Of A Princess" and know that you're bringing up the topic of masturbation.
I sincerely wish Michael G. Paulson felt called upon to scrutinze "The Novellino or One Hundred Ancient Tales" edited and translated by Joseph P. Consoli. A very real expert on the deliberately done sexual symbols in antiquity is needed in my opinion. These are the tales the Holy Knights of the Crusades read, loved, and retold while on the crusades, which includes the obscene "giving the finger" used during that time etc. It's the not so obvious that must be sitting there unnoticed or unmentioned, a Pandora's Box, and like a time capsule for someone to open. It's that THEY knew the One Hundred Ancient Tales! Oh, but to have a window open wide on those men, those people out there in that horror, that is accurate, not revisionism, or an attack on Christians! I'm voting that Michael G. Paulson is that potential expert.
"Facets Of A Princess" sort of makes a person want to pull out books like Aucassin and Nicolette, The Novellino, or Old French Romances for a reread as if a person
is now up to par enough to notice a few things for him or herself. It's because the rose tinted colored glasses are gone. The reader grasps, "These authors were people who wrote for people...and are not some twisted combination of cave man/Victorian Era make believe people those in the year of 2005 have them up to be." The Novellino readers and Canterbury Tale readers will do fantastic with "Facets Of A Princess" because they've already caught on that the people of the past were real people as we know people to be.
What a fine book! What can I say? How about, "It's semi large print, easy to read,
there are some paragraphs in French but it won't matter since you'll next be found at Alibris searching frantically for all the books Madame de La Fayette read thus creating her mind. "Facets of a Princess: Multiple Readings of Madame de la Fayette's "La Princesse de Cleves" Overview
