Enjoying this- a bit of a brief overview of his early life, and a bit too pseudo psychology at parts. Trying to cover most of American Political History for my second year at uni; which has a course solely on that

Picked up more library books on Friday, but I've barely cracked 'em. Spent all weekend writing, though. Drew up a second "proposal" of sorts, but it's rooted mainly in readings as opposed to "data" (what there is). This thesis is gonna be a feat. (Long story short: I'm supposed to do an "honors thesis" started, oh, last semester which is to be "original research". Someone in my areas of interest probably doesn't have a lot of wiggle room there without, say, y'know, travel or surveys, or something like that, so I'm working with extant statistics that have probably used on subject matter that's already been touched. No idea if I'll get through this and I don't have the most attentive guidance)

I finished Northanger Abbey. I [Inks]ing love Isabella, I don't give a [Inks]. Life's too short to hate such a brazen manipulative asshole. She's so bad but she does it so well.

Tell me how it is when you're done? This seems right up my alley.

Just finished Stefan Zweig's "Fouche" and "Marie Antoinette", and I'll probably be moving onto Napoleonic-related works. I need to read more historical works of Zweig (I had read his Magellan years ago as well), but he could easily be among my favourite authors very soon.

I'm not yet sure why, but I find his psychological insight into the people he writes about utterly fascinating (and hilarious at times).

Read Marie Antoinette, but haven't read Fouche.

Have you read Maria Stuart by him? Very fascinating.

Fouche is probably one of the best works I've ever read, partly because of how well he gets in the mind of such an enigmatic character, and also because he paints a different picture of Fouche's actual relevance (I think he's way underestimated in comparison to Talleyrand). Maria Stuart I haven't, but it will probably go into my reading list soon...
