Marie Antoinette: De Biografie by Antonia Fraser

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Marie Antoinette: De Biografie Uitmuntende biografie van een vrouw op zoek naar vrijheid en identiteit .

Op oktober maakte de guillotine een einde aan het tragische leven van Marie Antoinette Ze is gekenschetst als een losbandig monster Ze zou hebben aangezet tot de Franse Revolutie Maar wie was Marie Antoinette de ongelukkigste koningin van Frankrijk cht Antonia Fraser echtgenote van Harold Pinter schreef een levendig en uitstekend gedocumenteerd portret van een koningin tegen wil en dank eenzaam levend aan het extravagante Franse hof Fraser beschrijft de levensreis van een veertienjarig meisje dat door haar moeder Marie Theresia aan de vijftienjarige koning in spe Lodewijk XVI wordt uitgehuwelijkt Ze blijkt onvoldoende toegerust voor het leven op Versailles Ver weg van Wenen moet ze zonder steun van familie haar leven vorm zien te geven .

Antonia Fraser laat zien dat zij niet de decadente en gevoelloze heerseres was waarvoor sommige biografen haar hebben gehouden De auteur schroomt niet ook haar tekortkomingen te laten zien zoals haar slecht ontwikkelde gevoel voor politiek en ruime hand van geld uitgeven Frasers visie op Marie Antoinette is dieper veelzijdiger en interessanter dan wat er tot nu toe over haar is geschreven Marie Antoinette de biografie is een hartveroverende biografie van een jonge vrouw op zoek naar vrijheid en identiteit Het is Antonia Fraser gelukt het leven aan het Franse hof tot leven te wekken en een van de belangwekkendste periodes uit de West Europese geschiedenis in een ander licht te plaatsen

A unique testimony to modern literature s most celebrated and enduring marriage, Brilliantly written a work of impeccable scholarship An utterly riveting and intensely moving book by one of our finest biographers br br Never before has the life of Marie Antoinette been told so intimately and with such authority as in Antonia Fraser s newest work Marie Antoinette The Journey Famously known as the eighteenth century French queen whose excesses have become legend Marie Antoinette was blamed for instigating the French Revolution But the story of her journey begun as a fourteen year old sent from Vienna to marry the future Louis XVI to her courageous defense before she was sent to the guillotine reveals a woman of greater complexity and character than we have previously understood We stand beside Marie Antoinette and witness the drama of her life as she becomes a scapegoat of the Ancien Regime when her faults were minor in comparison to the punishments inflicted on her br br The youngest daughter fifteenth out of sixteen children of Austrian empress Maria Teresa and Francis I Marie Antoinette was sent on a literal journey by her mother from Vienna to Versailles with the expectation that she would further Austrian interests at all times Yet Marie Antoinette was by nature far from interested in state affairs and much more inclined to exert a gracious philanthropic role patronizing the arts especially music as royalty would come to behave in the nineteenth century Despite this the French accused her of political interference and wrote scandalous tracts against her mocking her lack of sophistication Meanwhile longing for a family and the birth of an heir who would have cemented the Franco Austro alliance the French queen had to endure more than eight years of public humiliation for her barren marriage before the delivery of her first of four children br br As these problems unfold Antonia Fraser also weaves a richly detailed account of Marie Antoinette s other more poignant journey from the ill educated and unprepared girl who sought refuge in pleasure as a consolation into a magnificent courageous woman who defied her enemies at her trial with consummate intelligence arousing the admiration of even the most hostile revolutionaries br br Brilliantly written Marie Antoinette is a work of impeccable scholarship Drawing on a wealth of family letters and other archival materials Antonia Fraser successfully avoids the hagiography of some the French queen s admirers and the misogyny of many of her critics The result is an utterly riveting and intensely moving book by one of our finest biographers, Antonia Fraser s Warrior Queens are those women who have both ruled and led in war They include Catherine the Great Elizabeth I Isabella of Spain the Rani of Jhansi and the formidable Queen Jinga of Angola With Boadicea as the definitive example her female champions from other ages and civilisations make a fascinating and awesome assembly Yet if Boadicea s apocryphal chariot has ensured her place in history what are the myths that surround the others And how different are the democratically elected if less regal warrior queens of recent times Indira Gandhi and Golda Meir This remarkable book is much more than a biographical selection It examines how Antonia Fraser s heroines have held and wrested the reins of power from their consistently male adversaries, In Cromwell award winning biographer Antonia Fraser tells of one of England s most celebrated and controversial figures often misunderstood and demonized as a puritanical zealot Oliver Cromwell rose from humble beginnings to spearhead the rebellion against King Charles I who was beheaded in and led his soldiers into the last battle against the Royalists and King Charles II at Worcester ending the civil war in Fraser shows how England s prestige and prosperity grew under Cromwell reversing the decline it had suffered since Queen Elizabeth I s death
