Summary ß PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Vivant Denon Point de lendemain Download Ñ 106 S tale of seduction is itself a seduction with a plot that could be said to slowly unveil itself before arriving at last at an unexpected consummationSummoned by Madame de T to her country house the young hero of Deion's novella is taken on a tour of the grounds only the beginning of a night that not only will be full of unant. The cover copy for No Tomorrow Point de Lendemain by Vivant Denon calls it a masterpiece of libertine literature While that is certainly the genre into which it would fit of the 18th Century French variety I found that advertising the story this way actually minimizes the incredible subtlety of the work and the literary and historic connections The story is simple it is the seduction of the nameless young male narrator by a sophisticated and eually nameless older woman Mme de T It doesn t uite fit the libertine genre in that the seduction is a willing one and is carried out by a charming older woman Much like The Tale of Genji which follows the sexual exploits of a young noble man the narrator is obliue in referring to both the identity of the woman and the acts of seduction itself That is part of what makes the story so charming It leaves much to the imagination and conceals as much as it reveals Unlike The Tale of Genji it is a remarkably slim story but then one evening s seduction doesn t merit a long story The Forward by Peter Brooks was valuable in providing historical context to the story and the uestion of authorship The early reviewer copy I had featured the French text after the English translation but the published version has facing page translations which would ease comparing the language for readers of FrenchIt is such a slim volume it is certainly worth reading if you are at all interested in the time period and it is highly accessible to the modern reader if you are not sure about an 18th Century libertine novel

I found this nice little dual language version of this story when I was at the Wallace Collection It s dual language not facing pages but with the English translation first and then the French version I read the English translation first then the French and was uite surprised how after reading the English the French was uite easy to follow along with and I didn t have to go back to the English and remember what was happening cause I d gotten lost The story was a lovely tale of seduction in 18th century France It was a lot like Dangerous Liasons but without the malice and the tragedy and the moral ending Here was a story without a moral It was just a very pleasant tale of a young man being seduced by his mistresses friend them having a very enjoyable time and then going his own way once the woman s husband and lover return It s sweet and light and the people act very much like people You could actually see this happening in real life And the fact that there are no dire conseuencdes makes it even betterThe only thing I didn t much care for was the introduction at the begining Thankfully I read it after I d finished the story as in addition to giving backgroun on the author s life though his reputation as the author is still somewhat doubtful they go almost scene by scene through the story itself Definitely best to avoid if you don t want spoilers

As someone who is periodically seduced by urbane crafty older women via secret rooms in their homes euipped with spring loaded devices that discreetly toss entrants onto piles of cushions I was curious to see if this little story would be true to the experience I can speak to the authenticity Vivant Denon was clearly a man who entered these elaborate portals himself and the greatest evidence is that he doesn t over share choice details are all that is needed to bring this world into tastefully lighted focusWe open with a man alone at the opera these nights of passion always begin at a show for me this is usually an afternoon screening at the dollar cinema who has been stood up by the young lady he is mad about Our wealthy Madame seizes this opportunity to spirit the young man away and even helpfully sends a servant of her own to his house to tell them not to expect him home that evening how often have I heard a woman phone her husband to demand that he pick their kids up from school I couldn t guess The seduction is already underway the woman is jostled into the man s arms in the carriage ride one must endure crotch grabs played off as absent minded diet coke in cupholder retrievals that are mysteriously missing and a pro will lightly feign offense and then the other woman is discussed endless rantings about conspiracy theories which is the modern parallel for society life among the sophisticated in America When they arrive at her estate a flirtatious stroll on the veranda commences the night sweetly shrouded with shadows scrambling after her through thick brush in an isolated section of the city park as she searches for her buried chest of sex toys they always forget where the chest is buried even though most of them have maps it s part of the game We meet the lackadaisical husband and dine with him freuent calls from him are ignored the ring tone is usually a country pop hit detailing an episode of infidelity and he dismisses himself early The lovers toy with each other circling around the whirlpool of desire a crying episode she screams at you to leave her alone you turn and walk away and are soon tackled from behind if your lucky you won t hit your head on a root And then the lovers enter the forbidden room and the tone changes from playfulness to eagerness this could be a hollowed out tree but my favorites are abandoned junk cars and in one instance an old tractor tire The story continues but I don t want to give everything away especially the wonderful exchange of entendre that follows with the rival lover attacked at Sonic drive in with a mechanic s screwdriver And then everything repeats in French
