Críticas

Maria Antonieta é uma figura mítica. Julgada severamente por seus contemporâneos e pela história, vista por todos como uma rainha celerada, e depois um bode expiatório, ela sempre foi unanimemente admirada por sua inabalável coragem perante os grandes cataclismos de seu tempo. Coroada rainha da França em plena saída da adolescência, ela foi incumbida por sua mãe, a poderosa imperatriz Maria Teresa, da tarefa de proteger os interesses de seu país natal, a Áustria. Por toda a vida, exerceu um papel político ambíguo, atraindo a desconfiança e o ódio do povo francês. Neste livro, Antonia Fraser retraça a jornada inicial da rainha. Ela examina detalhadamente a personalidade e os percursos de Maria Antonieta - a infância, as influências dos laços familiares, as relações conjugais marcadas por um casamento não-consumado por um longo tempo, a vinda tão esperada dos filhos, o idílio com o conde Hans Alex von Fersen, seus contatos com as grandes figuras da Revolução, e, enfim, seus esforços heróicos para salvar a família e a monarquia da violência revolucionária.… (mais)
