Monsieur Vénus

Roman matérialiste

When the rich and well-connected Raoule de Vénérande becomes enamored of Jacques Silvert, a poor young man who makes artificial flowers for a living, she turns him into her mistress and eventually into her wife. Raoule's suitor, a cigar-smoking former hussar officer, becomes an accomplice in the complications that ensue.

Reviews

"The novel may still outrage some readers, but it has become a key text for students of fin de siècle literature, women writers, and gender studies." —English Showalter
