Comments

The final work on France by Helen Maria Williams, first English woman to write about the upheavals of the French Revolution when she traveled there in 1790. She later became repulsed by Robespierre and the reign of terror, but following the Revolution returned to France to live and become a French citizen. Her narratives of events in France between 1790 and 1815 are some of the most valuable first-hand accounts of those turbulent decades.
