Denis Diderot, Russell Goulbourne. Who would have thought that this simple book with its bare title about a fully clothed nun is truly an expressive story. If not Voltaire, who could have written a more satirical episode on clerical life. Diderot is just as striking! This man of letters is stylish in his writing and a faithful epitome of French Enlightenment. In the old days convent is an ideal haven for ecclesiastical women and a suitable refuge for old maids.

Diderot's The Nun (La Religieuse) is the seemingly true story of a young girl forced by her parents to enter a convent and take holy orders. A novel mingling mysticism, madness, sadistic cruelty and nascent sexuality, it gives a scathing insight into the effects of forced vocations and the unnatural life of the convent. A succès de scandale at the end of the eighteenth century, it has attracted and unsettled readers ever since. For Diderot's novel is not simply a story of a young girl with a bad habit; it is also a powerfully emblematic fable about oppression and intolerance.This new translation includes Diderot's all-important prefatory material, which he placed, disconcertingly, at the end of the novel, and which turns what otherwise seems like an exercise in realism into what is now regarded as a masterpiece of proto-modernist fiction.About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Insightful book

This is a sad story and is actually difficult to figure out at the end. Quite frankly it is rather appalling and if this is based in fact, then it is beyond horrible. Not an uplifting story and a terrifying commentary on how a closed system can become monstrous for those who do not follow.

I got through the book, but it took some time. Just didn't grab my interest like I thought it would.

As the offspring of her mother's affair, Suzanne is ever aware that she is treated less favorably than her legitimate siblings. As soon as possible, her parents arrange for her to take the veil, (this being a cheap way to dispose of her), while her sisters receive dowries and can marry.
This novel follows Suzanne through her years as a nun- her attempts to refuse to take her vows; the pressure on her to conform and then the different personalities she encounters within the convent walls. From the deeply loving to the incredibly cruel; the melancholy, the jealousy, the madness and the lesbianism.
As Suzanne notes, she is unlike most nuns who are driven from the religious life by some unruly passion. 'I want to be free because my freedom was sacrificed against my will'.
Short (180 p) but gripping read.
