Synopsis:

'The Sage of Monticello' brilliantly recounts the accomplishments, friendships, and family difficulties of Jefferson's last seventeen years--including his retirement from Washington and the presidency, his correspondence with John Adams and James Madison, his mounting personal tribulations, and his role in the founding of the Library of Congress and the University of Virginia, where he proved himself to be an extraordinary educator and architect as well as a statesman. This is a fitting final chapter in the life of one of America's greatest men.


Review:

"No biographer could hope to explain the labyrinth of contradictions that was Thomas Jefferson: aristocrat as democrat, cosmopolitan as provincial, philosopher as politician, revolutionary as conservative, egalitarian as believer in racial inequality, anti-slavery advocate as slaveholder. Mr. Malone neither avoids nor attempts to justify such contradictions and flaws....No reader familiar with earlier volumes of Mr. Malone's biography...can take very seriously the charge that the biographer is blind to his subject's faults. Mr. Malone's Jefferson is no man of marble."

C. Vann Woodward, New York Times Book Review, 7/5/81
