Gladstone has called it. In these pages, science, art, literature, social questions, love, are treated with all the cynicism of a Machiavelli and the naivete of an ardent and enthusiastic girl. On a background solemn and somber as the steppes of her native land are traced pictures that reflect the vivid hues, the luminous atmosphere, the life, the movement, the variety, of France, Spain, I taly. With a nature that was profoundly religious, and a spirit that was essentially skeptical, with ambition to conquer the universe, and a heart that yearned with a passionate longing for affection, demanding all things for herself, yet capable of the most utter self-abnegation. hoping all things, and fearing all things alternately, clinging to life with an eagerness that is pathetic in its intensity, wishing for death with an eagerness no less pathetic, regarding herself by turns as the superior of kings, and as less than the least of created beings, Marie Bashkirtseff has left us as her contribution to the literature of humanity these confessions, which no one who has a mind to think or a heart to feel can read unmoved. Certain portions of the Journal, which in its entirety might seem diffuse to American readers, have been omitted in the translation. M. J. S.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Marie Bashkirtseff: The Journal of a Young Artist 1860-1884 A generation has passed since this self-revelation of a unique individuality, recorded with absolute fidelity to truth, was first given to the world. A revelation which, in the words of a reviewer of the Journal, at the time of its first appearance in an English translation in America, gives one the impres sion of a soul accustomed to other and higher spheres, which, caught and imprisoned in a human body, is filled with curiosity to investigate its new surroundings, possessed of an explorer s interest in the bound of being and a philosopher s desire to subject to analysis all the tense passions and emotions of which it finds itself possessed. A genuine human document. The sincerest reveal ment ever made to the world of the most intimate experiences of a human soul, of the most secret thoughts of a human heart. And pervading all the spirit of eternal Youth, the undying hope of Youth, the daunt less courage of Youth. A great book indeed. An immortal book, which has within itself the assurance of its immortality, the immortality which only Genius can confer. A book without a parallel, indeed, as the great English statesman and scholar, Gladstone, has called it. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
