Synopsis

Rien n'a plu davantage, dans les Lettres persanes, que d'y trouver, sans y penser, une espece de roman. On en voit le commencement, le progres, la fin : les divers personnages sont places dans une chaine qui les lie. A mesure qu'ils font un plus long sejour en Europe, les moeurs de cette partie du monde prennent dans leur tete un air moins merveilleux et moins bizarre, et ils sont plus ou moins frappes de ce bizarre et de ce merveilleux, suivant la difference de leurs caracteres.
