Therese

Written by Francois Mauriac

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

Therese Synopsis

From the moment she walks from court having been charged with attempting to poison her husband, to her banishment, escape to Paris, and final years of solitude and waiting, the life of Therese Desqueyroux is passionate and tortured. The victim of a hostile fate, Therese, as Mauriac said of her `belongs to that class of human beings ... for whom night can end only when life itself ends. All that is asked of them is that they should not resign themselves to night's darkness.' Therese's moving and powerful story affirms the vitality of the human spirit, making her an unforgettable heroine.
