Purple prose. Endless passages telling rather than showing Marcus's achievements. "Emma's head came up proudly. So long as democracy lived, her husband would not be forgotten." I would like to read this story written by a good writer.

a very interesting story, told melodramatically and undoubtedly romanticized. undoubtedly a hagiography but quite an interesting figure
