Julie; ou, la Nouvelle Heloise

Reading experience
Identifer:

Evidence

"In my own day all mothers strictly forbade their daughters to read Rousseau"s ""Nouvelle Heloise"", and all daughters, of course, longed to read nothing so much. I knew one young lady who owned to me that she stole a reading of it standing on the top steps of her father"s library-ladder; and another, who procured it and carried it into the country with her on her wedding day, as the first fruits of being her own mistress. Yet within these few years I happened to hear a girl of very warm feeling, enthusiastic, romantic, just the person whose head it would have turned of old, declare she had tried to read it, but been so disgusted that she threw it away before she got through half the first volume".
