I noticed today that Danton is a member of the 27 club. 1767-1794...Don't mind me, I have a mild obsession with people who died at that age, thought it a neat fact for any others who share a similar fascination.
Also, does anybody know where I can find translations of Napoleon's early political writings, or the play that he wrote? (not sure if he ever finished it, but I still wanna check it out)
So far I'm not really a fan of War and Peace; it seems a little overrated to me. Then again, I'm not that far into it. Even if the story doesn't get better, I am determined to trudge my way through all 1000+ pages!
I don't think French Revolution posts are too off topic. Our guy is often referred to as the son of the Revolution ya know ;)
