With The Greek Girl s Story, Alan Singerman presents the first reliable, stand-alone translation and critical edition of Abbe Prevost s 1740 literary masterpiece Histoire d une Grecque moderne. The text of this new English translation is based on Singerman s 1990 French edition, which Jonathan Walsh called arguably the most valuable critical edition of Prevost s novel to date. This new edition also includes a complete critical apparatus comprising a substantial introduction, notes, appendixes, and bibliography, all significantly updated from the 1990 French edition, taking into account recent scholarship on this work and providing some additional reflection on the question of Orientalism.Prevost s roman a clef is based on a true story involving the French ambassador to the Ottoman Porte from 1699 to 1711.

It is the story of the tormented relationship between the diplomat and a beautiful young Greek concubine, Theophe, whom he frees from a pasha s harem. While her benefactor becomes increasingly infatuated with her and bent on becoming her lover, the Greek girl becomes obsessed with the idea of becoming a virtuous and respected woman.
