Blood sisters : the French Revolution in women's memory by Marilyn Yalom( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and Turkish and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The promises of "liberty, equality, and fraternity" did not extend to women, but with the publication of Blood Sisters, the voices of the women who witnessed the French Revolution are finally restored to history. They left us an invaluable legacy - some eighty accounts of what they saw and experienced. These chronicles range from the sixteen-page testimonial of the Widow Bault, wife of the concierge in Marie-Antoinette's prison, to the ten-volume memoirs of the prolific writer Mme de Genlis; from the dictated life story of an illiterate peasant to acknowledged classics by Mme Roland and Mme de Stael. No other literature in the Western world offers such an early treasury of women recording their personal histories within the context of a great political cataclysm. Their stories describe how they participated, individually and collectively, in the revolutionary saga and how they sometimes succeeded in manipulating a political system designed to exclude them. Whatever their political loyalties, the women saw themselves as victims, and their accounts document the connection between gender and victimization. Yet they did not accept their victimization passively. The memoirists of Blood Sisters portray themselves as active participants cheering the Revolution on its course or, more frequently, resisting it. Marilyn Yalom singles out those who authored the most unforgettable chronicles: the governess of the royal children; the servant attending Marie-Antoinette in her last days; Robespierre's sister, Charlotte; the peasant woman from the Vendee who fought as a soldier; and, of course, Mme Roland, whose autobiography has enchanted readers for centuries. Aristocrats and bourgeois women, royalists and republicans, even the few peasant and working-class women who left accounts of their experiences - all were bound together by a common nightmare. These compelling human dramas - moving accounts of survival on the cusp of catastrophe - add suffering faces to the canvas of lofty thinkers and fiery orators who dominate the historiography of the Revolution. They tell us what it was like to suffer a miscarriage as the result of a street demonstration, to choose between nursing a baby and following a husband to war, to resist jailers' demands for sexual favors. A tragic note prevails: the sense of having survived when so many others perished often produced what we might now call "survivor's guilt." Their testimonies, Yalom argues, spring from an inner urgency to bear witness for those who were sacrificed on the revolutionary altar. Their writings eloquently attest to the human costs of radical social change

How the French invented love : nine hundred years of passion and romance by Marilyn Yalom( )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Love occupies an honored place in the French sense of identity, on a par with fashion, food, wine, and the rights of man. A Frenchman or woman without amorous desire is considered defective, like someone missing the sense of smell or taste. For hundreds of years, the French have championed themselves as guides to the art of love through their literature, paintings, songs, and cinema, yet no English book has seriously addressed the subject of French ideas about love. No one has followed the roadmap of French literary landmarks, which explore every nuance of love as it evolved over the centuries- until now

The amorous heart : an unconventional history of love by Marilyn Yalom( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The symmetrical, scalloped, exuberant heart is everywhere: it gives shape to candy and candy boxes, cookies and cakes, earrings and pendants, floral arrangements, jewelry containers, vases, soaps, padlocks, and frothy milk on top of a cup of coffee. We see it used as a verb on t-shirts ("I [heart] New York") and in text messages (the incredible variety of heart emojis). In all of its forms, and across borders, continents, and languages, the heart symbol conveys one thing, and one thing only: love. How can we explain the ubiquity and power of what might be the most recognizable symbol in the world? In The Amorous Heart, Marilyn Yalom embarks on an investigation into the heart's mysteries, tracking the heart metaphor and heart iconography across three thousand years and shedding light on how human beings have found, expressed, and experienced love itself"--
