Calugarita by Denis Diderot (2 star ratings)

She was punished until a priest transferred her to another convent. It’s fair more explicit in the nasty parts, and it sure has a good amount of farts, many repulsive things, easy sense of humor I wonder if Trollope had this in mind in the obviously comical passage in “The Warden”, when he describes a fictitious parliamentary proposal to allow nuns to be strip-searched by elderly Anglican clergymen looking for “Jesuitical symbols” – an enjoyable mockery of how moral panic so often combines with prurient titillation.

I can also see how the lesbian tendencies could come about, although I think the male author gets a bit carried away with his imaginings at times: She has commited all sort of sacrileges through the whole book, but oh, that doesn’t seem to matter really. To ask other readers questions about Calugaritaplease sign up.

It at times comes off like Suzanne is actually in love with the Mother Superior the same can be said of Therese who acts like the desperate ex-girlfriend who keeps trying to get her former lover back.


Diderot was writing inwhen asking such questions would get you imprisoned. In calugzrita opinion, the aim of progressing through technology was doomed to fail.

I have envied, and asked God for, the blissful stupidity of my companions, but I have not obtained it and he will not grant it me.

The plot is not funny. And even worse, Diderot tries to make the main text a novel, but he clearly wasn’t a skilled novelist. Amy Li rated it did not like it Jul 08, Imagine something even worse than Jane Eyre’s situation, since I loved the book. Her womanhood has been denied,her femininity abused. Yet the jokes and humour never occlude the resounding pathos of Suzanne’s desperate situation: Denis Diderot was a French philosopher, art critic, and writer. I believe, anyway, that if I were asked to revise this novel through a postmodern lens, I would be persuaded to ignore the offensive aspects, religiously speaking, and probably complain at the rape culture promoting, the lesbophobia and misogyny that is present in the treatment of women as jealous, narcissistic, competitive hungry women.

The introduction admonished the author for making out that the mother superior was “mad all along” but I have a different reading from the text – it’s the classic “unrequited love drives people mad” trope.

The book more likely than not made genuine destruction for managing homosexuality back in eighteenth century that coordinated against dideeot catholic church. He rejected the Idea of Progress.


As well the nature of Suzanne’s harassment was somewhat sadistic. Suzanne’s ultimate tragedy is in having nothing to live for. Of the very base, chav chasing, track suit wearing, Vicky Pollard yeah but no but yeah dideroot where I settle my newly acquired Christmas overhang on the settee, spread out the fries and Baconnaise washed down with a spot of bitter shandy and munch my way through this diedrot saga of nuns being very, very naughty.


Subjective novel about rennassaince term during 18th century bu diderot. The story of a girl stripped of her freedom, forced to join the convent against cakugarita will, imprisoned and mistreated in that wretched place of seclusion and worship, and who finally falls into the deep abyss of libidinous vices with a perverted Mother Denis Diderot.

Likely it was the time he was writing in and the fact that it was set within the Catholic Church as well, that muddles it.

Good friends and calugxrita like The Nun do make me happy. As well, her parents and step-sisters are concerned about family finances as the sisters are in need of dowries. Didreot the jokes and humour ne La Religieuse was initially conceived by Denis Diderot as an elaborate practical joke: Noor Aldulaimy rated it did not like it Nov 06, Denis Diderot was a French philosopher, art critic, and writer.

There are segments of dialogue as there are intervals of narration, balanced on the whole; there are moments of omniscience in what is otherwise a monologue, with some free indirect discourse, to boot; there are epistolary appeals to the reader.
