La Princesse de Clèves
Okay guys. I love 17th-century French literature (you’re looking at a guy who owns the complete works of Corneille) but I hated every single character in this book except Madame de Clèves. They were universally assholes. That said, reading this from a feminist perspective was really interesting and not 100% infuriating (especially when adjusted for inflation).
I do wish there had been more jousting, though.
