Louise De La VallièreBook - 2009
Louise de la Vallière is the middle section of The Vicomte de Bragelonne, or, Ten Years After. Against a tender love story, Dumas continues the suspense which began with The Vicomte de Bragelonne and will end with The Man in the Iron Mask. Set during the reign of Louis XIV and filled with behind-the-scenes intrigue, the novel brings the aging Musketeers and d'Artagnan out of retirement to face an impending crisis within the royal court of France. This new edition of the classic English translation is richly annotated and places Dumas's invigorating tale in its historical and cultural context.

Not I, for i must return to Blois. All this gilded elegance of the court, all the intrigues, disgust me. i am no longer a young man who can make his terms with the meanness of the present day. i have read in the great Book of God many things too beautiful and too comprehensive to take any interest in the little trifling phrases which these men whisper among themselves when they wish to deceive others.
