Letters Written in France
Helen Maria Williams was a poet, novelist, and radical thinker deeply immersed in the political struggles of the 1790s. Her Letters Written in France is the first and most important of eight volumes chronicling the French Revolution to an England fearful of another civil war. Her twenty-six letters recounting old regime tyranny and revolutionary events provide both an apology for the Revolution and a representation of it as sublime spectacle.

Charming and informative first person account of the French Revolution, if not particularly subtle in thought or style. The large chunk relating the sentimental tale of a disinherited nobleman is a rollicking good time, though. Read full review
