The two lovers finally end up in New Orleans, to which Manon has been deported as a prostitute, where they pretend to be married and live in idyllic peace for a while. But when Des Grieux reveals their unmarried state to the Governor and asks to be wed with Manon, the Governor's nephew sets his sights on winning Manon's hand.
In despair, Des Grieux challenges the Governor's nephew to a duel and knocks him unconscious.
Thinking he had killed the man and fearing retribution, the couple flee New Orleans and venture into the wilderness of Louisiana, hoping to reach an English settlement. Manon dies of exposure and exhaustion the following morning and, after burying his beloved, Des Grieux is eventually taken back to France by Tiberge. Later references in art and literature[ edit ] In the novel The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas fils , Manon Lescaut is an all-important model and point of comparison for Marguerite's life, loves, and death.
In the opening pages, the narrator encounters a copy of Manon Lescaut in the auction of Marguerite Gautier's estate, and buys it. He reflects that Marguerite died alone in a "sumptuous bed" and Manon in the desert in her lover's arms, concluding that the former is worse, for Marguerite died "in that desert of the heart, a more barren, a vaster, a more pitiless desert than that in which Manon had found her last resting-place".
The narrator learns this copy of Manon Lescaut was a gift from Armand to Marguerite, Armand telling him that she read the story "over and over again", making notes in the margins and "declar[ing] that when a woman loves, she can not do as Manon did". But of course she does because she must: hence the tragedy.
Michael Fane, the hero of Compton Mackenzie's novel Sinister Street , reads Manon Lescaut just before plunging into his own hopeless pursuit of a "fallen woman". In the first letter of Ivan Turgenev 's short tale "Faust", the epistle writer mentions a portrait which had been seen as a portrait of Manon Lescaut.
In Leopold von Sacher-Masoch 's Venus in Furs , the masochistic hero Severin refers approvingly to the Chevalier's love for Manon even after she has left him for another man.
In a short story written by French author Guy de Maupassant entitled "Doubtful Happiness", Manon Lescaut is referenced by a character in the story as the counterpart or model for his estranged girlfriend in Paris, named Jeanne de Limours. She is weak and weary, hungry perhaps for food, certainly for sexual fulfilment.
The poet addresses her in a rough, hoarse voice, informing her that this is no longer her timid abbe speaking to her. Paris: Heme, Google Scholar Lacombe.
