La Monaca by Denis Diderot (1 star ratings)
So, the story is set in two parts, both equally horrendous. Honestly don’t care about this book enough to write a proper review. I found this story extremely boring despite being less than pages long.
Paperbackpages. But this dialogue between Suzanne and her new confessor about the matter just reveals Diderot’s hatred for convents, once again he expresses through the character of the priest, the idea that they should not exist. French Lit class I still have some nerves left. One of the good things about this experience is that it conditioned me to a suspension of disbelief when it comes to improbable tales of misbehaviour by nuns – but this tale is a bit much, even for me.

The main character, Sainte Suzanne is a young girl who is forced into the convent by her parents. There were no chapters, which really bothered me for some reason.
In fact, her way of manipulating the discourse is pretty phenomenal and perhaps one of the few redeemable things about this book. Most notably, all men are portrayed in a better light than women, except for Suzanne’s adoptive and biological father, respectively.
Warwick rated it it was ok Feb 17, And she passively accepts all of the degeneracy, because that’s how life is. As if this sounded one bit Catholic in the least. Now, I don’t know how things worked in the tumultuous pre-revolutionary France enough to judge the accuracy of this, knowing it’s satire and the prejudice against the Church held by the author When the Mother Superior contracts tuberculosis, the vile Theresa takes command of the monastery temporarily and misuses her power to make Susanna’s life a living hell.
The plot hurries away through the despairing to wretchedness. Films directed by Joe D’Amato.
Timothy rated it did not like it Feb 06, Perhaps the only character to whom she should’ve trusted her story. Every nun and priest says “Well, The whole novel is of epistolar nature, since Suzanne writes this to a Marquis. A new punishment monacs as a dixerot, and it’s even worse than the preceeding one, since all the other nuns are cruel to her because she’s believed to be an apostate.
She has commited all sort of sacrileges through the whole book, but oh, that doesn’t seem to matter really.

Suzanne’s supplication to god in the wake of being discovered conflicting with her hallowed promises was in the list Her spiritual director, Father Lemoine is the mnaca good character that aims to save her from mortal sin. Maybe not as low as two stars, but definitely not as high as three.
Louma rated it did not like it Jan 03, Mary Ronan Drew rated it monava not like it Sep 19, Its short, thrives on shocking the reader so just gets more and more gruesome and graphic. At times it seemed as if Diderot was almost enjoying describing her torture at the hands of other nuns.
Do yourself a favor and spend your time reading Rabelais.
Daniela Dll rated it did not like it Jan 21, I rated this 2. Wrong, it was just wrong She’s denied things on monacx, treated inhumanely as a priest aims to verify whether she’s really possessed, and the other nuns do things against her.
In one sense it’s similar to Sade, corruption of an innocent person and gruesome background. The first convent is sadistic in its treatment of her.
Now, I don’t deny that it is an nonaca never justified opinion of someone who’s entered there against their will, but these aren’t prisons. This article about an erotic film is a stub.
Ubaidillah Anwar rated it did not like it Dec 14, This article related to an Italian film of the s is a stub. She has incorporated some manners proper of nuns but not the religiosity, not even one bit.
