Around Retif de La Bretonne region (Yonne)


Rétif de la Bretonne was a French writer born October 23, 1734 in Sacy, Burgundy, and died February 3, 1806 in Paris. He is the author of a prolix and varied work, including novels, autobiographical stories, philosophical essays and political pamphlets. Rétif is a complex and contradictory writer. He is both a lucid observer of the society of his time and a visionary who proposes daring social utopias. He is also a passionate writer, who explores themes of love, sex and religion with great freedom. Rétif's work is often considered to be on the fringes of classical literature. However, she had an important influence on many writers, including Balzac, Flaubert and Zola.
