    Aims and Scope

    The volume contains 422 letters. Constant marries Charlotte von Hardenberg, which leads to an estrangement from Germaine de Staël, his fellow-writer and mistress of long standing. In the letters from this period, political life takes a back seat, and after the appearance of Wallstein his literary creativity enters a dormant phase. The reader is confronted above all with Constant’s turbulent private life.

    Ce volume contient 422 lettres. Benjamin Constant épouse Charlotte de Hardenberg et doit faire accepter l'évènement par Germaine de Staël. La vie politique passe donc pour lui au second plan tandis que ses travaux littéraires, après la publication de Wallstein, connaissent une pause. Le lecteur plonge, lui, dans l'intimité de personnages qui sont hors du commun.
