Alistair Horne ´ 4 Download

Free read Seven Ages of Paris review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Alistair Horne Alistair Horne ´ 4 Download S splendidly to life With a keen eye for the telling anecdote and pivotal moment he portrays an array of vivid incidents to show us how Paris endures through each age is altered but always emerges brilliant and beautiful than ever The Seven Ages of Paris is a great historian’s tribute to a city he loves and has spent a lifetime learning to know. This book is thoroughly readable and yet ultimately disappointing I opened it expecting an account of how Paris came to take on its current form Horne does discuss this of course But his main focus is military and political history a series of rulers great and petty who march across the stage of history usually bringing war in their wake Horne s prose is engaging and smooth and he vividly captures the drama of rebellions affairs sieges and plots but as a result the descriptions of Paris itself were superficial and vagueEven so I did learn a good deal about the city s history especially the nineteenth century But I think the book could have been far better if less exciting had Horne focused on the city itself rather than the belligerent leaders for whom it served as a backdrop The final impression left by Horne s book is of a city whose streets run red with blood since he focuses so insistently on the admittedly many instances of the French slaughtering one another As if the tourist did not have enough to worry about already
