Book Review
La Princesse de Clèves (1678)
 by Anonymous

   There are a slew of books from before the 1800's left in the 1001 Books project because I didn't read ANY of them, I just thought it would be too much like school.  That was back in 2008, and now, in 2018, that decision has come home to roost, and I found myself slogging through an Ebook of La Pcincesse de Cleves, generally regarded as the first French novel and first psychological novel.  Tell the truth, I got little to nothing out of it.  It's all very hard to follow, I would advise taking notes if you go here.
