Urbain Grandier

by Alexandre Dumas, père

Ahh...A timely reminder of a colourful, yet brutal episode in history, told with consumate flair by one of the masters of prose and panache... A worthy portrail of Grandier`s life, I feel, has yet to reveal itself, however, Dumas, in the spirit of that other great frenchman Cyrano De Bergerac, brings it all together with a lovely tapestry of colour and by the numbers storytelling, but with that extra bit of flourish thrown in for good measure, as always...A brief journey into the past for all to enjoy...Please do so..DM.
