ABSTRACT
The article presents a critical analysis on the book "Heptaméron," the literary work of Marguerite de Navarre in the city of Florence, Italy. Based on the analysis conducted by several critics, Heptamé possessed an ultimate value of privileging truth rather than fiction. Its main subject is to teach the value of truth to the readers, and the true nature of love especially to women. On the other hand, the text on this literary work is ambiguous and paradoxical.
