Modeste Mignon Summary
The first part of Modeste Mignon is based on a traditional species of folktale known as La fille mal gardée (“The Ill-Watched Girl”), in which a young woman takes a lover despite the close attention of her guardians, who are determined to preserve her chastity for a more suitable match. Modeste Mignon, a young provincial woman of romantic temperament, imagines herself to be in love with the famous Parisian poet Melchior de Canalis, whose works have filled her with passion. She corresponds with him, but he is unmoved by her attention. Canalis invites his secretary Ernest de la Brière to deal with the matter. Ernest replies to Modeste in Canalis’ name; a dangerous intrigue ensues, which sees Ernest appear in Modeste’s hometown of Ingouville (near Le Havre) disguised as Canalis.
