Read Peter McPhee's essay on writing a "human" biography of Robespierre on the Yale Press Log. For some historians and biographers, Maximilien Robespierre (–94) was a great revolutionary martyr who succeeded in leading the French Republic to safety in the face of overwhelming military odds.

Maximilien Robespierre is one of the best-known and most influential figures of the French Revolution. He was instrumental in the period of the Revolution commonly known as the Reign of Terror, which ended with his arrest and execution in Brand: Verso Books.

Despite the ceaseless rise and fall of parties and programmes which invariably brought the radical trend to the fore, the class content of the French revolution never ceased to be bourgeois in character. Robespierre's faction was merely the most consistently revolutionary of the petit-bourgeois trends that dominated the Convention.

Robespierre's opponents attempted a conciliation with the Incorruptible, even winning Saint-Just to their side. Robespierre apparently agreed on 4th Thermidor (July 22), but on 8th Thermidor (July 26) denounced his opponents before the Convention to thunderous applause.

Robespierre and his three younger siblings were brought up by diverse relatives after their father dramatically lost his way in life after the death of his wife in childbirth in "Robespierre's Will," The True Briton (28 August ) Coleridge, "Sonnet: To Pitt" (23 December ) John Thelwall, "A Parallel between the Character of PITT and ROBESPIERRE," The Tribune () Lines by Coleridge from Southey's Joan of.

Considering the limited amount of information available on the subject, I found this book to be rather informative and not just another recycled version of an older book.
