In 1712, two Persians, Usbek and Rica, left their country and went to settle in Paris. Their stay in the French capital lasts eight years. Through the letters they write to their Persian friends or that they send to each other when they are not together, they speak with humor or seriousness about French customs. This epistolary novel allows Montesquieu to make a severe criticism of his country and of his time.
