Clisson and Eugenie: a Love Story

We rated this book:


Everyone has heard of Napoleon Bonaparte and his countless military feats, but fewer people know him as a brilliant author. Napoleon, an inexhaustible reader, wrote a creative novel in the autumn 1795: Clisson and Eugénie. Though he wrote two creative pieces, Clisson and Eugénie is his most successful and important work of fiction.

The novel, published several times in France, is now a part of the Gallic Books edition with the assistance of Emilie Barthet, a graduate in French literature and an editor-in-chief of Napoleon Bonaparte’s correspondence, and Peter Hicks, an author and psychiatrist. Let’s considerClisson and Eugénie by Napoleon Bonaparte.

Clisson and Eugénieis an influential love story. Clisson, from birth, always loved war. He becomes despondent and has nothing to live for until he notices two young women – Amelie and Eugénie – taking a stroll. His heart locks with Eugénie’s, and thus, this love story ignites until war summons Clisson.

The question is, does love or war cause Clisson to commit suicide?

In Clisson and Eugénie Napoleon Bonaparte delivers a romantic work of genius that moves a cynic to want to experience his fictional love. As for the analysis ofClisson and Eugénie, readers, please welcome this opportunity.
