Reader's note

This brilliant green Penguin will add a touch of colour to your favourite bookshelf. This book presents to many unknowns. Translator L. W. Tancock states in the preface - Was Manon Lescaut a literal account of some adventure of Prévost? Was there a real Manon? If so, did she cross Prévost's path in 1720 or between 1728 and 1730? Had Prévost some loyal man friend who became Tiberge? Even if answers to these and many other questions could be given the would have very little consequence, for great art does not depend upon faithful portrayal of individual experience but upon presentation of that experience in terms of universal human truth. - a powerful sentiment. This just shows the reader that they will have an unforgettable experience with this one!
