a gentleman of france being the memoirs of gaston de bonne sieur de marsac

Book cover
The tenth novel by Stanley John Weyman, an English novelist sometimes referred to as the "Prince of Romance". It was published in 1893 and had the title of “À gentleman of France being the memoirs of Gaston de Bonne sieur de-Marsac.” The story is narrated in a form of notes of the participant of the described events. Weyman portrayed very clearly the conditions of life at the time of Henry III, the court, morals and manners of the sixteenth century. The main personalities – Henry III and IV, Duke of Sully and even Crillon are developed extremely vividly and truthfully. “A Gentleman of France” covers a period of about a year: from the late 1588 to 1589. Following the tradition of Walter Schott, the author avoids superfluous trivial details and numerous characters, presenting a carefully studied historical account inside of the thread of the narration.
