Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe book that established Thomas Carlyle's reputation when first published in 1837, this spectacular historical masterpiece has since been accepted as the standard work on the subject. It combines a shrewd insight into character, a vivid realization of the picturesque, and a singular ability to bring the past to blazing life, making it a reading experience as thrilling as any novel. As John D. Rosenberg observes in his Introduction, "The French Revolution" is "one of the grand poems of (Carlyle's) century, yet its poetry consists in being everywhere scrupulously rooted in historical fact."
