Format: Paperback
Well, this is a fascinating book. It is a series of sketches of eleven men who made the French Revolution, writers, lawyers, military men all brought together in an attempt to remake the French nation. Thompson has delved into the historical record and tells us more than most books will about the private lives and beliefs of these men. My favourite chapter is devoted to Marat; it shows him to be at the same time idealistic, corrupt and crazy. "Marat's strength--both for good and bad--lay in his refusal to believe or do anything at second-hand--to be anything but his own inconsistent self." Marvellous.
