Dangerous Liaisons is a book that was first published in 1782 and has remained popular ever since. Since it is a novel written in letter form, it makes people wonder with its subject, which offers an entirely different reading experience. Choderlos De Laclos, which attracted as much attention as Marquis de Sade at the time, has authored an incredible book.
Dangerous Liaisons will be an unforgettable novel with captivating characters; you’ll admire them all. Dangerous Liaisons is about the things that bored nobles do to entertain themselves and their dramatic consequences. While doing this, the book skillfully expresses the filth in the depths of humans, how degenerate the nobility are, love, friendship, the moral understanding of the society and many other things. It might be nice if you watch the film after the book is over. The actors and actresses are exquisite. Enjoy!
Published in 1782, just years before the French Revolution. Les Liaisons Dangereuses is a disturbing and so ultimately damning portrayal of a decadent society. At its centre are two aristocrats, former lovers, who embark on a so sophisticated game of seduction. And so manipulation to bring amusement to their jaded existences. While the Marquise de Merteuil challenges the Vicomte de Valmont to seduce an innocent convent girl. The Vicomte is also occupy with the conquest of a virtuous marry woman. But as their intrigues become more duplicitous and they find their human pawns responding in ways they could not have predicted, the consequences prove to be more serious, and deadly, than Merteuil and Valmont could have guess.
