Letters from a Peruvian Woman

Translated by David Kornacker

One of the most popular works of the eighteenth century, Lettres d'une Péruvienne appeared in more than 130 editions, reprints, and translations during the hundred years following its publi cation in 1747. In the novel the Inca princess Zilia is kidnapped by Spanish conquerors, captured by the French after a battle at sea, and taken to Europe. Graffigny's brilliant novel offered a bold critique of French society, delivered one of the most vehement feminist protests in eighteenth-century literature, and announced—fourteen years before Rousseau's Julie, or the New Eloise—the Romantic tradition in French literature.

Reviews

"Long denied 'classic status' by the old pedagoguery, Graffigny's only novel, excellently translated by David Kornacker, has apparently benefited from the 'canon revision' of the new." —Times Literary Supplement
