Benjamin Constant


This edition of Adolphe has been published in French.

Extract: Si quelques-uns échappent à cette destinée générale, ils renferment en eux-mêmes leur dissentiment secret ; ils aperçoivent dans la plupart des ridicules le germe des vices : ils n’en plaisantent plus, parce que le mépris remplace la moquerie, et que le mépris est silencieux.


Odéon Livre brings French-language literature to an American audience. While many of our featured works have been translated into English, we focus exclusively on texts’ native versions. Plots and characters can indeed be translated, but even the most faithful interpretation will lack the power and beauty of French.
