    Abstract ‘If the Provincial Letters were serious, nobody would read them any more’, Gide has written. 1 The Letters are in fact profoundly — even, at times, desperately — serious, but Pascal does not become pompously solemn or tediously earnest: he is never boring. Yet to many, if not most, people the subjects he is basically canvassing could rapidly induce boredom!Author: Donald Adamson. About the book (from Wikipedia): The Lettres provinciales (Provincial letters) are a series of eighteen letters written by French philosopher and theologian Blaise Pascal under the pseudonym Louis de Montalte. Written in the midst of the formulary controversy between the Jansenists and the Jesuits, they are a defense of the Jansenist Antoine.

    These Letters, written in defense of his Jansenist friends, exposes and ridicules the doctrines of the Jesuits. Pascal does a wonderful job of being humorous while still making a valid point. Please Note: This book is easy to read in true text, not scanned images that can sometimes be difficult to decipher.
