Books by Denis Diderot. Characters are clearly unhealthy in their evilness but with guidance the framework could survive. Diderot is also known as the author of the dialogue, Le Neveu de Rameau Rameau’s Nephewupon which many articles and sermons about consumer desire have been based.

The Nun is yet another an example of French anti-clerical writing.

Also sentences and paragraphs were overly long, which made it a real pain to read. To make her didderot less severe she’d study the rules she’d have accepted, so that her experience in the second convent wouldn’t be so painful when the benevolent Mother Superior left. Do yourself a favor and spend your time reading Rabelais. I see a well-written book which I am unable to like due to its content.

One of the good things about this experience is that it conditioned me to a suspension of disbelief when it comes to improbable tales of misbehaviour by nuns – but this tale is a bit much, even for me.

Imagine a mother who, having had a girl out of wedlock, condemns all her faults and frustration on her daughter. A new punishment follows as a result, and it’s even worse than the preceeding one, since all the other nuns are cruel to her because she’s believed to be an apostate.

If it isn’t her mother than it’s her convent. She’s denied things on purpose, treated inhumanely as a priest aims to verify whether she’s really possessed, and the other nuns do things against her.

This was a strange story which I have reason to believe may be somewhat based in fact. The first convent is sadistic in its treatment of her. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

And what’s worse is diderott, like some of the worst best-sellers of today, the protagonist is completely oblivious to the irregular nature of such acts. It seems as if Sr.

Oriana rated it it was ok Mar 12, The cruelty is sadomasochistic and with help she transfers to another convent where the mother superior is none other than a very amorous lesbian. Obviously she’s terrified of what might come next and can’t sleep. With a dose of polyamory. Maybe not as low as two stars, but definitely not as high as three. And of course she will always blame herself for all sorts of sexual advances she receives.


As a philosopher Diderot speculated on free will and held a completely materialistic view of the universe; he suggested all direrot behavior is determined by heredity. He therefore warned his fellow philosophers against an overemphasis on mathematics and against the blind optimism that sees in the growth of physical knowledge an automatic social and human progress.

Sex scenes I’d rather skip commenting on for my own good. Lists with This Book. At times the occasions and her torment appeared to be perverted as well There he discreetly but firmly refuted d’Alembert’s technical errors and personal positions on probability.
