Overview

First published in 1927, this legendary French novel intensely recounts a story of both love and heartbreak between the heroine and her beloved. A famous poet whose presence in her life she had intuited since childhood, and with God, who had long seemed to her the substitute—or the antecedent—for this future romantic love.

Reviews

 "Agnès, published under a pseudonym in 1927, if a brief story destined to become a classic of French literature." — Jacinta Cremades, El mundo

Author Biography

Catherine Pozzi was born into a well-to-do Parisian family, the intellectual contemporary of figures such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Paul Valéry. The autobiographical Agnès quickly became a cult classic upon its publication in 1927.
