De quoi s'agit-il?
______________________

Thérèse Desqueyroux is an extremely interesting novel written by François Mauriac in 1928 nearly 20 years before woman gained the vote. In an age when we were are used to increasing (although incomplete) equality between the sexes, this novel comes as something of a shock to the system with women losing their identity and having less clout than the family servant.

Set in, as the author puts it, the back of beyond, in the Landes in South West France, the novel traces an episode in the life of the eponymous heroine.

At the start of the novel Thérèse has had her case for attempted murder of her husband by poisoning quashed. Two thirds of the novel involve her going through the events in her life that lead up to the realisation by doctors that something criminal has been going on.

The events include much detail around the role of women in a society that had probably changed little in hundreds of years with giving birth being considered the primary function of a woman, preserving the family name and if one was rich helping to keep wealth in the family.

The novel is a potent mix of plot, background, point of view and intrigue and thoroughly to be recommended for A level study.
