    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This volume contains 305 letters covering three years of Constant’s life in which he finally experienced a happy marriage. However, these years were overshadowed by Germaine de Staël’s misfortune, by his enormous gambling losses and also by a dispute with his father which was to last until his father’s death. Constant left France and traveled to Switzerland and Germany, but he could not find the happiness he had hoped for‑ not even in the seclusion of German libraries.

    Ce volume contient 305 lettres qui couvrent trois années d'une vie de Benjamin Constant qui devrait connaître enfin le bonheur conjugal, mais est marquée par les malheurs de Germaine de Staël, d'énormes pertes au jeu et une querelle avec son père qui ne cessera qu'à la mort de celui-ci. Quittant la France pour la Suisse et l'Allemagne, Constant ne retrouvera pas dans le calme des bibliothèques allemandes le bonheur auquel il aspire.
