Catherine the Great

Серия: "-"

By delving into the life of Catherine the Great, this acclaimed biographer reveals the rich tapestry of Russia's past, giving insight into the paradoxical character of its people and their stunning evolution from feudalism to communism to their present-day struggle for a free-market democracy. This is history as it is rarely written today - elegant, witty, dramatic, and with an intimate knowledge of its characters. And what better subject for a biography than one of history's most powerful women, the German-born Russian empress whose adopted language and culture were French, and whose most loyal correspondents were Voltaire and Diderot? Troyat details the various lives of Catherine II: the ambitious child, the acquiescent yet firm grand duchess, the forceful politician and patron of the arts, the belligerent war maker, and the doting grandparent.

▪ 2008
Lev Aslanovich Tarasov 
      Russian-born French writer

born Nov. 1, 1911 , Moscow, Russia

died March 4, 2007, Paris, France
was admired by legions of enthralled readers for his clear, lucid style and rich historical detail in his more than 100 literary works, including novels, short-story collections, biographies, and plays. His first novel, Faux jour (1934), won the Prix du Roman Populiste, and his fifth, L'Araigne (1938; The Web, 1984), was awarded the Prix Goncourt. Troyat's family settled in Paris after having fled from Russia during the Revolution, and although he wrote exclusively in French, many of his epic novel cycles, shorter novels, and biographies dealt with Russian history and with the emigrant experience. In 1959 Troyat was inducted into the French Academy.
