L'ascension du mont Ventoux

L'ascension du mont Ventoux by Unknown

L'ascension du mont Ventoux is a captivating and inspiring story that follows the journey of a young man as he embarks on a challenging expedition to conquer the famed mountain. The author's descriptive writing style beautifully captures the beauty of the natural landscapes and the physical and emotional hurdles faced by the protagonist along the way.

I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and found myself rooting for the main character as he pushed himself to his limits in pursuit of his goal. The themes of determination, perseverance, and self-discovery are woven throughout the narrative, making it a thought-provoking read.

Overall, L'ascension du mont Ventoux is a well-written and engaging novel that will appeal to readers who enjoy adventure stories with a message. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a compelling tale of personal growth and triumph over adversity.

Book Description:

Au printemps 1336, François Pétrarque entreprend avec son frère l’ascension du mont Ventoux, qui, de ses 1912 mètres, domine le Comtat Venaissin et la Provence.

C’est cette ascension et son pendant mystique que François Pétrarque relate, le jour même, dans une lettre datée du 26 avril, à son ami et confesseur Dionigi di Borgo San Sepolcro, lettre qui fut ensuite publiée sous le titre L’ascension du mont Ventoux.

Le texte original est en latin. Il a été traduit en français en 1880 par Victor Develay.
