    She tells him she is to be taken to America. However, there was an expression in his countenance too amiable not to be easily recognised, and which immediately brought his features to my recollection. But we never see the other characters interact with them, no evidence of resistance or collaboration. G M's interest about me was the result of his esteem and friendship for my family; that it was in this sense he had explained the matter to him; that what I had now told him should assuredly produce a change in my treatment, and that he had no doubt but the accurate detail which he should immediately transmit to the lieutenant-general of police would bring about my liberation.

    Here, then, is his story, which in its progress I shall not encumber with a single observation that was not his own. G M, who went off in such a rage, and who had sufficient influence to make himself formidable. Lescaut fell, without the least sign of life. She cried for joy, and I could feel her tears trickling down my cheeks. Lazare that I learned my destination.

    Manon is in the last stages of weakness, and Des Grieux is beside himself with despair. Lescaut of my difficulties, and did not conceal from him that I had received a thousand francs from a friend. I saw that by betraying too strong an impatience for my liberty, I should probably be upsetting all my projects. I know the excellent qualities of both your heart and head. I felt little desire, on this occasion, to change his opinion of the fair sex. I left the inn, with the intention, as I told Manon and the landlord, of going in a hired carriage, but this was a mere flourish; necessity obliged me to travel on foot: I walked very fast as far as Cours-la-Reine, where I intended to rest.

Manon Lescaut book

He called me his brother, and, under the semblance of fraternal freedom, he put himself on such a footing as to introduce all his friends without ceremony into our house at Chaillot, and there entertain them at our expense.

This was just as little to my taste, for it would necessarily have rendered me unfaithful to Manon. I must reconcile myself to my destiny in all its rigour. Length: 5 hrs and 57 mins Unabridged 4 out of 5 stars 23 Performance 4 out of 5 stars 17 Story 4 out of 5 stars 17 Manon is just about to enter a convent when she meets the young Chevalier des Grieux, a philosophy student.

We found one to our taste the next morning. The two lovers finally end up in New Orleans, to which Manon has been deported as a prostitute, where they pretend to be married and live in idyllic peace for a while.

I met him with an air more grave and certainly less silly than I had exhibited at his house with Manon. The postilions and innkeepers stared at us with wonder, and I remarked that they appeared surprised at such uncontrollable love in children of our age. Lescaut returns but lectures her in the proper ways a young lady such as her should behave.

At length it was time to retire. He at length induced us to follow his advice. This was my proposition. I took their jokes in good part, glad enough at being permitted to revolve in my mind the plans I had meditated; but some words which fell from my father made me listen with earnest attention.

He tells her that he can give her protection and great wealth, and promises of a better future.

Manon Lescaut (en Espanol Contemporaneo)

My only hope of escape now, was in hypocrisy; I scrutinised the countenance, and carefully marked every observation that fell from the governor, in order to ascertain what he really thought of me; and looking on him as the sole arbiter of my future fate, I made it my study to win, if possible, his favour.

She was abducted from her young lover. The sight of so lovely a girl as Manon, my ill-disguised impatience to conduct her to the inn, and the anxiety I betrayed to get rid of him, had excited in his mind some suspicions of my passion.

At length an archer of the civic guard, wearing his bandolier, and carrying a carbine on his shoulder, appeared at the gate; so, beckoning him towards me, I begged to know the cause of the uproar. I remembered, too, the little purchases she had lately made, which seemed beyond our present means.

She feigns relationships with wealthy men in order to rob them, which the Chevalier interprets as her being truly unfaithful. But persons of a finer cast can be affected in a thousand different ways; it would almost seem that they had more than five senses, and that they are accessible to ideas and sensations which far exceed the ordinary faculties of human nature; and, conscious that they possess a capacity which raises them above the common herd, there is nothing of which they are more jealous.
