Marie Antoinette: The Portrait of an Average Woman (Grove Great Lives) by Stefan Zweig

Life at the court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette has long captivated readers, drawn by accounts of the intrigues and pageantry that came to such a sudden and unexpected end. Stefan ZweigsMarie Antoinette: The Portrait of an Average Womanis a dramatic account of the guillotines most famous victim, from the time when as a fourteen-year-old she took Versailles by storm, to her frustrations with her aloof husband, her passionate love affair with the Swedish Count von Fersen, and ultimately to the chaos of the French Revolution and the savagery of the Terror. An impassioned narrative, Zweigs biography focuses on the human emotions of the participants and victims of the French Revolution, making it both an engrossingly compelling read and a sweeping and informative history. Certainly no one can arise unmoved from the reading of this powerful work. --The New Republic Excellent biography. --The New York Times
