Francoise de Graffigny

Francoise de Graffigny. One of the most popular novels of the eighteenth century, the Letters of a Peruvian Woman recounts the story of Zilia, an Inca Virgin of the Sun, who is captured by the Spanish conquistadores and brutally separated from her lover, Aza. She is rescued and taken to France by Deterville, a nobleman, who is soon captivated by her. The novel portrays Zilia's feelings on her separation from both her lover and her culture, and her experience of a new and alien society.

Françoise de Graffigny Jonathan Mallinson. Oxford World's Classics . Graffigny did much more in her book than merely fulfil the conventional expectations of readers of the genre in which she was writing. Letters of a Peruvian Woman was one of the best-selling novels of the eighteenth century, but it also provoked controversy because of the heroine's unwillingness to settle for a conventional "happy ending".

It has taken me a long time, my dearest Aza, to fathom the cause of that contempt in which women are held in this country. Zilia, an Inca Virgin of the Sun, is captured by the Spanish conquistadores and brutally separated from her lover, Aza.

Letters of a Peruvian Woman book. Paperback, Oxford World’s Classics, 155 pages . Published March 1st 2009 by Oxford University Press (first published 1747) . A man of the highest rank owes consideration to a woman of the basest possible standing. He would bring shame and what is called ridicule upon himself were he to make her any personal insult.

One of the most popular novels of the eighteenth century, the Letters of a Peruvian Woman recounts the story of Zilia, an Inca Virgin of the Sun, who is captured by the Spanish conquistadores and brutally separated from her lover, Aza. She is rescued and taken to France by Déterville, a nobleman, who is soon captivated by her. The novel portrays Zilia's feelings on her separation from both her lover and her culture, and her experience of a new and alien society. By fusing sentimental fiction and social commentary, Françoise de Graffigny created a new kind of heroine, defined by her intellect as much as her feelings and challenging traditional assumptions about the role of women both in fiction and society. This first fully annotated English translation of the novel includes a comprehensive introduction, appendices containing extracts from Graffigny's principal source, Garcilosa's Royal Commentaries of Peru, as well as contemporary French and English continuations/adaptations of the novel.About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe.
