Summary expansion
The name "Faeneste" in Greek means "superficial appearance" while "Enay" refers to "essential being." The baron expresses himself in a mixed French of Gascon dialect, while Enay uses noble and well-chosen words. The baron returns from the war and meets Enay, humbly dressed. The pretentious soldier praises the soldier's life, but Enay presents his own theories, using solid arguments, and great finesse, on the misfortune of an existence lived day by day with the sole aim of immediate gratification. From dialogue to dialogue, the author recounts the adventures of Faeneste: his arrival at the Court, his loves and his duels, his surprising exploits that go nowhere. Finally, the sufferings inflicted on the people by the man-at-arms are condemned, as well as the ambition to dominate by force, even at the expense of justice. Satire against Catholicism during the Baron's stay in Italy, and particularly in Rome, is an important part of the work. The discussions on baptism, on priests, on miracles and on Limbo, reveal the polemic intentions of the author, a well-known Huguenot, and an "apostate" where politics are concerned. The work ends with an ironic eulogy of impiety; all description taken from website of bookdealer Camille Sourget www.camillesourget.com
