Madame Roland naît en 1754, fait des études brillantes, épouse un financier du roi : ces prémices aboutissent en général à un salon bourgeois. Elle eut un salon. Elle y rencontra l'Histoire, et l'Histoire ne la lâcha plus.

Cet ouvrage contient la collation de plusieurs mémoires rédigés par Madame Roland, une parisienne de la fin du XVIIIè siècle, mariée un ministre de l'intérieur lors de la fin de la royauté, et personnage actif de la Révolution Française. La plupart ont été écrit alors que le pays est en guerre tant à l'extérieur qu'à l'intérieur, et que les factions politiques républicaines se déchirent. Madame Roland fut en effet emprisonnée et finalement exécutée sous la Terreur.

Les sujets abordés sont très va

"La libertad... ¡No está hecha para esta nación corrompida que tan sólo ha abandonado el lecho del desenfreno o el fango de la miseria para embrutecerse en el vicio y rugir mientras se revuelca en la sangre que mana de los patíbulos!"
Por pura coincidencia leí este libro al azar que justamente descubro luego de haber leído "María Antonieta". Por lo tanto ambos me han ilustrado más sobre la revolución francesa, pero mientras el primero es una biografía de la reina que cayó en desgracia durante la

Kitabın ingilizcesi çok zorladı bu sebeple yarım bırakmak zorunda kaldım yoksa 1 ayda zor
bitireceğim ve o kadar sabırlı bir insan değilim ne yazık ki.

fakat dış ülkelere karşı vatansever bir politikayı savunuyorlar. Krala kendi üyelerinden
oluşan bir bakanlar kurulu kurdurtmayı bile başarıyorlar. Devrimden sonra Cumhuriyet

Roland paints herself as an exemplary human being who, along with her husband, fell prey to the horrible Jacobins. Whether or not this is true (and the introduction does not question her virtue or her moral strength in anyway), her conviction in being in the right, her fortitude in the face of insult and her courage against the strength of her foes makes for remarkable reading and well-warrants for her the epithet "heroine of the Revolution". As an aside, while she makes a point of painting Dant ...more

This is a very hard book to read, when one is aware at all times that it was written by a living, breathing woman who knew she was going to be guillotined . . . and for what? For proving that a woman was as competent at the governmental level as a man. She and Olympe de Gouges terrified the revolutionaries, which in turn helped bring on Napoleon. I always cry when I get to the part where she addresses her little daughter.

While it doesn't have the intellectual rigor of Boethius (who also wrote f
