Locating Eugenie de Guerin in her social, religious and intellectual setting, this text analyses the main themes which emerge throughout her writings, and discusses her originality as the first woman diarist published in France. It also gives the critical reception of her Journal and "Journal et Lettres". It traces through her writings Everin's reactions to the people and the events in her life, including well-known persons such as Sainte-Beuve, Xavier de Maiestre Lacordaire and Barbey d'Aurevilly. Her appeal crossed both political and religious boundaries.
