The book draws a magical picture of rural France around the turn of the 20th century. As to the domain--it must be my middle age showing, but I wanted a clearer moral position from the author. Augustin and Frantz both unhesitatingly sacrifice the happiness, health, and money of most of the other characters in quest of their romantic ideals. Not excluding the narrator; but especially they sacrifice the women they profess to love. I find it hard to accept this as any kind of ideal.
Don't buy this edition! The print is so tiny you'll need a microscope to read it!
