Shamelessly romantic! 'Graziella' is set on a small island by Naples and tells of the love story between a young Frenchman eager to discover the world and a beautiful, pure, simple Italian girl. Their relationship is reminiscent of 'Paul et Virginie', with all the simple beauties of nature and life celebrated and the evils of the modern world decried. Lamartine's style, full of images and poetry, is wonderful, and the age-old plot would draw tears from a stone. This novella is also an intense tribute to the charms of Italy - I've been wanting to live there ever since I read the book. ( )
