Sure, there are lots of classics, books that I've learned about, if not read, during my school years. I can always pick up a Jane Austen. Or Charles Dickens. Or Shakespeare. I can re-read Jane Eyre, or try Beowulf. But then I came upon this at Miami's library book sale. The story interests me, a Senegalese girl raised in France during the French Revolution. Even better is its length, or rather, its shortness, a mere 47 pages...
It's an interesting story, though mostly it''s a narration of the Senegalese girl's emotional anguish, as she realizes her difference from those she once considered her family, and her doomed love to Charles. It did mention the revolution, but only in passing. Nonetheless it makes for an interesting and thought provoking read. What could Ourika have done to keep her life happy? I do believe she could have make something out of her life, instead of the path she chose. It would be interesting too if someone can expand this into a full fiction.
A bestseller in the 1820's...uau, That's something . Thank you so much!
