This is an extremely readable biography that provides general information on the life of Madame de Stael in addition to a good overview of information regarding the the French Revolution. This biography does not delve into specifics but gives an overall portrait of the Madame De Stael's life; it retells her actions and explores some of her motivations. It is told in a style that is very enjoyable to read.
