I haven't read that one, but I will :D


I think you will enjoy it.
I would love her much more if she could tone down the essentialist feminism. Feminism is all well and good, but she keeps talking about Woman as a fixed thing. It annoys me, and also surprises me in such an otherwise good historian.


I think it particularly irked me in the Marie Antoinette book. It wasn't nearly as evident in the one about seventeenth-century English women, Empty Vessels, which is surprising.


Maybe it is just something she does when she writes about Queens?
