About the book:
Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, “Paul et Virginie”, 1788.
On the then French-ruled island of Mauritius, young Paul and Virginie are childhood friends who fall in love. Soon, their innocence will shatter before the cold reality of France’s pre-Revolution class system…
Considered one of the finest novels of the Enlightenment period, Paul et Virginie is a melancholic, delicate tale of paradise lost. The book was met with critical acclaim upon its initial release and remains a tremendously popular story throughout the world today.The book is available at Albertine.
