    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyaklánca And so I arrived at a genre for which at the time I had no name I have called it a 'real history' because it eschews every kind of novelistic embellishment and amplification and because it treats a well known episode from the time of Louis XVI This is a gloriously eccentric and idiosyncratic book that retells the curious story of the most expensive diamond necklace in the world that was the object of a complicated fraud involving Marie Antoinette and a handful of oddball characters If it weren't true it would be jaw droppingly unbelievable and Szerb has immense fun and satisfaction in telling it In between the story itself he indulges in descriptions of 50 course dinners at the court of Louis XVI in frivolous fashions in the caree

    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyakláncaAntal Szerb published this in 1942 at a time when his previously irrelevant Jewish background suddenly became not only became suddenly central to his life but was to see his untimely death in 1945 His comment that ‘the great libraries of Paris – now closed to me for the indeterminate future’ is tragic to read However having been denied such access could not have stopped such a talented writer and so what we have is an extremely personal account into the history of ‘the ueen’s necklace’ with lots of digressions and historical parallelsSzerb delights in introducing the characters involved and the way in which their linked relat

    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyakláncaIt’s fitting how I’ve been putting off writing this review of The ueen’s Necklace Antal Szerb’s last book; for Szerb likewise seemed to have been putting off finishing it A lifelong Hungarian Catholic whose Jewish ancestry doomed him to underemployment and murder under Nazi occupation Szerb passed up several opportunities to escape preferring to share his people’s fate With the final fatal crisis approaching in 1943 Szerb sought refuge in the history of eighteenth century France dwelling on its most minute details digressing and diverting along myriad tangents as though contriving like Scheherazade never to reach the end The ueen’s Necklace is Szerb’s valediction how he wanted to go not in bitterness but in erudite frivolity Pausing one last time just before the close Szerb makes the subtlest of allusio

    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyakláncaAn entertaining witty and as far as I can tell not being an expert in the subject accurate story about the infamous necklace affair that had a big influence in Marie Antoinette's life The book is a kind of a mixture of a novel and a history book; a historical story told in an entertaining storyteller way with both funny little anecdotes and factual background information Szerb sometimes writes what a person may have been thinking in this or that situation and highlights their personality and motives but he also tells his sources and doesn't seem to invent things or romanticide He maintains his fairly objective academic style and tells about people's positive sides and faults but he also treats his characters with a bit of sarcasm and a subtle sense of humour so the story doesn't get boring or dry eitherI've never been very interested in the French revolution but I love Szerb's novels and also wanted to know about the era to understand better Michael Kunze's ne

    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyakláncaI usually don't read non fiction; it bores me to death regardless of the subject matter There are only a very very few exceptions for me and one of them for sure is Antal Szerb That said you can easily argue that his non fiction writing completely reads like fiction and that is so true This book is about the famous necklace scandal that directly preceded the French Revolution and was one of the first worldwide 'celeb' stories ever Szerb actually writes much about the circumstances the social and political environment of the fatal jewelry of Marie Antoinette than the actual case I said 'of' Marie Antoinette but in fact she never had anything to do with its scandal The fact that we associate her name with the necklace is part of the tragicomic essence of this event We read Szerb as if we were reading a highly intellectual gossip

    A királyné nyaklánca free read ´ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB A királyné nyakláncaNot all novelists are great historians and very few historians venture into to the realm of the novel So it takes someone like the Hungarian master novelist Antal Szerb or the acclaimed German storyteller and novelist Stefan Zweig to do both Both writers Francophiles at heart were drawn to the figure of Marie Antoinette and French revolutionary history and both gave us definitive biographies of this often misunderstood figure All the episodes of her short and tragic life unfold before our eyes in this short and splendidly written book that reads like a novel Marie Antoinette’s cloistered and privileged youth in Vienna where she was brought up
