Les lettres persanes - Montesquieu

Product Description

As the empire slowly expanded and travel became wider, exotic far-flung lands were of great interest to French society and their constant moral debates. Les lettres persanes brought forward a whole new genre of travel literature and became a highly influential and hugely successful work of the French enlightenment. The story tells of two Persian nobles who travel through Europe, ending their journey in Paris. The novel consists of 150 letters as the friends write home to their friends and comment on and satirise various aspects of Western society: religion, politics and social conventions. This audio book allows you to rediscover 18th century society from the heart of Parisian life, the centre of change and progression, through a team of seven comedians, actor and film-maker Jacques Perrin, and Aurélien Recoing.
