These two works, describe a vain, long-suffering Frenchman's first 20 years and their culmination in a tortured love affair with a possessive older woman. The author attempted to conceal the fact that these works were autobiographical, but his friends realized that Adolphe was in fact Benjamin.


In these two remarkable works, a brilliant, vain, long-suffering Frenchman describes the first twenty years of his life and their culmination in a tortured love affair with a possessive older woman. Constant attempted to conceal the fact that these two books were autobiographical. To his friends and acquaintances, however, it was clear that Adolphe was really Benjamin himself. Constant was an able parliamentarian, a champion of liberalism and the author of The History of Religion. Posterity, however, remembers him as the man who bared the anatomy of a destructive passion in the story of Adolphe.
