    Delphine is the first novel by Anne Louise Germaine de Staël, published in 1802. The book is written in epistolary form and examines the limits of women's freedom in an aristocratic society. Although Madame de Staël denied political intent the book was controversial enough for Napoleon to exile the author. A new English translation was released by Avriel H. Goldberger in 1995. The word "delphine" is defined as "to look or act like a dolphin".
