"Family romance" was coined by Freud to describe the fantasy of being freed from one's family and belonging to one of higher social standing. In Freud's view, the family romance was a way for individuals to fantasize about their place in the social order. Hunt uses the term more broadly, to describe the images of the familial order underlying revolutionary politics. She investigates the narratives of family relations that structured the collective political unconscious. Most Europeans in the eighteenth century thought of their rulers as fathers and of their nations as families writ large. The French Revolution violently disrupted that patriarchal model of authority and raised troubling questions about what was to replace it. The king and queen were executed after dramatic separate trials. Prosecutors in the trial of the queen accused her of exerting undue influence on the king and his ministers, engaging in sexual debauchery, and even committing incest with her eight-year-old son. Hunt focuses on the meaning of killing the king-father and the queen-mother and what these ritual sacrifices meant to the establishment of a new model of politics. In a wide-ranging account that uses novels, engravings, paintings, speeches, newspaper editorials, pornographic writing, and revolutionary legislation about the family, Hunt shows that politics were experienced through the grid of the family romance+-+752735570517574ocn050192120book20030.31Tackett, TimothyWhen the king took flightHistoryBiography"On a June night in 1791, King Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette fled Paris in disguise, hoping to escape the mounting turmoil of the French Revolution. They were arrested by a small group of citizens a few miles from the frontier and forced to return to Paris. Two years later, they would both die at the guillotine. Through this extraordinary story, and the events leading up to and away from it, Timothy Tackett recounts in gripping novelistic style the dynamics and trajectory of the French Revolution." "The king's flight opens a window to the whole of French society. Each chapter spotlights the drama as it was experienced by a different segment of the population: from the great orators of the National Assembly to the Revolutionary officials and national guardsmen of small-town France; from Louis and Marie-Antoinette - and Marie's Swedish lover - to the ordinary men and women of Paris passionately committed to transforming their world. Tackett shows how Louis's flight reshaped popular attitudes toward kingship, intensified fears of invasion and conspiracy, and helped pave the way for the Reign of Terror."--BOOK JACKET+-+K905659215171811ocn058975928book20050.15Erickson, CarollyThe hidden diary of Marie AntoinetteHistoryFictionBiographical fictionDiary fictionAwaiting her execution, Marie Antoinette writes the story of her life from her prison cell, in a diary that describes her privileged childhood as an Austrian archduchess, years as the glamorous mistress of Versailles, love affair with a handsome Swedish diplomat, flight from France, and imprisonment during the French Revolution+-+1352887685152313ocn001192281book19740.25Cronin, VincentLouis and AntoinetteHistoryBiography+-+175619513613457ocn005367782book19790.39Jordan, David PThe king's trial : the French Revolution vs. Louis XVIHistoryBiographyTrials, litigation, etc"On August 10, 1792, Louis XVI of France abandoned his Paris chateau, walked across the Tuileries gardens, and surrendered his crown. In the tumultuous months that followed, he was tried, found guilty, and sent to the guillotine. When originally published, David Jordan's riveting account of that turbulent time identified key issues, focused attention on a matter once considered only an episode of French history, and reframed the academic debate on the meaning of the most significant trial in French history.

Yet there have been no scholarly studies of Louis in any language, a result of the destruction or dispersal of the king's personal papers and documents. John Hardman, who has spent many years tracking down the primary sources, now fills the gap with this engrossing and perceptive account of Louis's reign. Hardman divides his story into three periods. His account of the first twelve years of Louis's reign, from 1774 to 1786, penetrates the secret workings of absolute monarchy in the last stage of its development. During this period, Hardman shows, the King was capable, especially in the fields of foreign affairs and public finance, but also austere, enigmatic and at times callous. The second part of the book, from 1787-9, opens with Louis's great personal reform initiative, presented to the Assembly of Notables and one of the pivotal events of the reign. Here Hardman discusses the disintegration of the regime, the loss of Louis' personal composure, and the corresponding rise in the influence of Marie-Antoinette. The King's often misunderstood attitude to the Estates-General in 1789, he argues, determined the whole character and course of the French Revolution. The main political theme of the final section, from 1789-93, is the King's attitude towards the Revolution as embodied in the Constitution of 1791. But here the political drama is replaced in part by a human one: as Louis's political role declined, his character, tempered by suffering, appears increasingly sympathetic. In the end, Louis emerges as a ruler with clear ideas and a genuine concern for the French people, and the flight to Varennes and the King's imprisonment and execution take on a new poignancy+-+2225155585100311ocn001370942book19390.39Padover, Saul KussielThe life and death of Louis XVITypescript, with ms. corrections and printer's marks, of a biography published by Appleton-Century (New York, 1939)9294ocn017199730book19870.21Haslip, JoanMarie AntoinetteHistoryBiographyPresents the story of the Austrian child-bride who, in the "safety" of a royal marriage, was swept up in the political furies of her time and paid with her life for the luxurious excesses associated with her court9256ocn001096921book19740.56Walzer, MichaelRegicide and revolution; speeches at the trial of Louis XVIHistory+-+94073568753248434ocn303067364book20100.07Meyer, CarolynThe bad queen : rules and instructions for Marie-AntoinetteHistoryJuvenile worksFictionIn eighteenth-century France, Marie-Antoinette rails against the rules of etiquette that govern her life even as she tries to fulfill her greatest obligation, giving birth to the next king, but she finds diversion in spending money on clothing, parties, and gambling despite her family's warnings and the whispers of courtiers+-+01281570658425ocn000271740book19670.35Faÿ, BernardLouis XVI : or the end of a worldHistory8212ocn043418236book20000.47Hardman, JohnLouis XVI, the silent kingHistoryBiography+-+K4915259858033ocn051390881book20030.27Price, MunroThe road from Versailles : Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, and the fall of the French monarchyHistoryBiographyMunro Price confronts one of the enduring mysteries of the French Revolution---what were the true actions and feelings of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette as they watched their sovereignty collapse? Dragged back from Versailles to Paris by the crowd in October 1789, the king and queen became prisoners in the capital. They were compelled for their own safety to approve the Revolution and its agenda. Yet, in deep secrecy, they soon began to develop a very different, and dangerous, strategy. The precautions they took against discovery, and the bloody overthrow of the monarchy three years later, dispersed or obliterated most of the clues to their real policy. Much of this evidence has until now remained unknown. The road from Versailles reconstructs in detail, for the first time, the king and queen's clandestine diplomacy from 1789 until their executions. To do so, it focuses on a vital but previously ignored figure, the royal couple's confidant, the baron de Breteuil. Exiled from France by the Revolution, Breteuil became their secret prime minister, and confidential emissary to the courts of Europe. Along with the queen's probable lover, the comte de Fersen, it was Breteuil who organized the royal family's dramatic dash for freedom, the flight to Varennes. Breteuil's role is crucial to an understanding of what Louis and Marie Antoinette secretly felt and thought during the Revolution. To unlock these secrets, The road from Versailles draws on highly important unpublished and previously unknown material+-+84231776856132ocn049805473book20020.21Cadbury, DeborahThe lost king of France : a true story of revolution, revenge, and DNAHistoryTraces the story of the missing dauphin and heir of the executed Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, examining historic events from multiple angles and presenting DNA evidence to reveal new conclusions+-+676837768558943ocn083339561com17890.79CléryJournal de ce qui s'est passé a la tour du temple pendant la captivité de Louis XVI, roi de France.

Ordinary people expressed violent opinions on the street corners, journalists published wild rumours one day and denounced scaremongering the next, political clubs grew like mushrooms and advocated the most radical solutions to political deadlock and crisis. In such an atmosphere, what did it mean to be 'one of the people'? Where were boundaries to be drawn around the national community? How could one identify threatening outsiders? What should be done about them?" "This book explores how Parisians of all classes sought to answer such questions, and why it was that the answers they found drove 'patriots' to confront each other on the Champ de Mars."--BOOK JACKET+-+96189903053244692ocn044969359book20010.06Plain, NancyLouis XVI, Marie-Antoinette, and the French RevolutionHistoryJuvenile worksExamines the reign of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, including information about their personal lives and accomplishments and everyday life in Revolutionary France+-+047569612542013ocn065332772com17930.81Paine, ThomasReasons for wishing to preserve the life of Louis Capet as delivered to the National ConventionTrials, litigation, etc4153ocn029361349book19940.70Dunn, SusanThe deaths of Louis XVI : regicide and the French political imaginationHistoryTrials, litigation, etcThe public beheading of Louis XVI was a unique and troubling event that scarred French collective memory for two centuries. To Jacobins, the king's decapitation was the people's coronation. To royalists, it was deicide. Nineteenth-century historians considered it an alarming miscalculation, a symbol of the Terror and the moral bankruptcy of the Revolution. By the twentieth century, Camus judged that the killing stood at the "crux of our contemporary history." In this book, Susan Dunn investigates the regicide's pivotal role in French intellectual history and political mythology. She examines how thinkers on the right and left repudiated regicide and terror, while articulating a compassionate, humanitarian vision, which became the moral basis for the modern French nation. Their credo of fraternity and unity, however, strangely depoliticized this supremely political act of regicide. Using theoretical insights from Tocqueville, Arendt, Rawls, Walzer, and others, Dunn explores the transformation of violent regicidal politics into an apolitical cult of ethical purity and an antidemocratic nationalist religion. Her book focuses on the fluidity of political myths. The figure of Louis XVI was transmuted into a Joan of Arc and a deified nation, and the notion of his sacrifice contributed to the disquieting myth of a mystical community of self-sacrificing citizens+-+K479856415+-+1352887685Fri Mar 21 15:49:05 EDT 2014batch293249
