Citizens Chronicle of the French Revolution

READ Citizens Chronicle of the French Revolution Simon Schama Ê 1 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ Citizens Chronicle of the French Revolution Instead of a dying Old Regime Schama presents an ebullient country. I wanted to read about the French Revolution So I searched on for the biggest cheapest book that I could find to give me an overview Now the French Revolution is complicated It makes the start of World War I seem simple and inevitable This book will not help clear that up Which is not to say that this is a bad book Rather it s not a starter book You should probably know a little bit about what s going on before you crack the covers I am ashamed to say I had to use Wikipedia to get the chronology straight This isn t a retelling of the French Revolution from start to finish Indeed historians still argue about when it started and when it finished Rather this is of an impression of the Revolution as told through participants through literature and through art Schama does not take the normal historian s route of moving from one Historical Event to the next Historical Event Instead he works to give the impression of how these things must have felt rather than focusing on a step by step retelling of what happened As I said this makes it hard for a newbie to the FR that s what the kids are calling the French Revolution these days The chapters are broken up chronologically but Schama has a tendency to jump around a bit so it s hard to keep things in order He also will mention something such as the Diamond Necklace Affair but won t explain what that is until fifty pages down the road Of course this wouldn t be a problem if I knew anything about the FR beforehand but still Schama is a popular historian not an academic so it s not totally okay with me that he expects such a high level of pre knowledge on the subject The best parts of the book are his mini biographies on some of the leading characters such as Necker Robespierre Malesherbes Lafayette Voltaire Delacroix David Marat etc For whatever reason he skimps on Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette In fact he barely mentions how Marie came to France even though her Austrian relations proved important to events in the Revolution Schama does spend inordinate amounts of time on the libelous pornography devoted to portraying poor Marie as a whore a lesbian and an eager participant in orgies Some of this is interesting especially in the way that these contemporary portrayals still hurt her reputation she NEVER said Let them eat cake but I would ve liked a bit on her character rather than its assassination All in all my troubles with the book mostly stemmed from my own unfamiliarity with the subject I got especially bored with Schama taking potshots at other FR scholars His analysis and conclusions that violence was the fulcrum of the Revolution rather than an aspect of it might not be readily accepted especially since his account is so anecdotal though I will reserve judgment until I read something else on the subject While the anecdotal nature of the book may detract from its scholarship it certainly brings the period to life Even if you don t know for sure why the Bastille is being stormed you ll be caught up in the account of its fall I especially enjoyed the story of Talleyrand the infamous diplomat with nine or lives Apparently while Talleyrand was making his escape to America he arrived at a foreign port where he had a conversation with none other than Benedict Arnold America s most famous traitor who was on his way to England The two of them had a conversation then parted ways One alleged traitor talking to another Now that is a great historical moment The stuff you can t make up history has already provided Morte no condomínio searched on for the biggest cheapest book that I
