About this title:

Synopsis: I wrote this novel last, but, in fact it is the first volume of what had now become "The Enlightenment Quartet" I look upon Memoirs as an introductory novel to the series. It covers an extended period, from the late 17th to the early-mid 18th century. What happens in this novel chronologically precedes the three others, and it also fills in a lacuna. In a sense, it 'wraps itself around' the second volume. The four novels are in different formats: "Memoirs" are, well, memoirs. "Hotel Transylvania" the next volume is a straightforward narrative. "Child of Europe" is largely in letters. The last, "An Outsider among the Thespians" is a narrative again. The Quartet deals with wars, exile, European outreach, art, and music. The protagonists are diplomats, generals, refugees, aristocrats, missionaries, artists, men and women. My overall aim was to evoke my favorite century from various viewing angles. Of course, the Quartet presents only a small portion of the times in which it is set. The Enlightenment reached its apex in the 18th century. Then, two revolutions, one political and one industrial, irrevocably changed Europe. And, as they say, progress cannot be reversed. P. S. A volume entitled 'Memoirs of Prince Eugene' appeared in London in 1811. It turned out to be a well-meaning forgery by the Prince de Ligne - I would like to repeat, once again that this novel is fiction.

Book Description Xlibris, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a novel about an extraordinary man, whose life straddled the late 17th and early-mid 18th century. Prince Eugene of Savoy was born in Paris in 1663 of Italian and French aristocratic families. His great uncle, Cardinal Mazarin was France's all powerful Chief minister. His youngest nephew, Eugene was slated to become a priest. Eugene had different plans for himself. At age 20 he personally asked for an Army Commission from Louis XIV. The King rejected the request out of hand. In decades to come, Louis had ample reason to regret that decision. Prince Eugene immediately left France for Austria and entered Emperor Leopold's Army. France's loss was Austria's gain. Eugene's rise in the Habsburg Army was spectacular. Under his leadership Austria rose to the peak of her power, and repeatedly vanquished both the French and Ottoman Turkish armies. In his later years, Prince Eugene became Austria's leading statesman, while continuing to be its Generalissimo. In his private life, Eugene aspired to become a grand collector, established a great library and a fine art collection. He had built some of the Habsburg Empire's finest castles, among them the Belvedere in Vienna and the Schlosshof in the country. His long friendship with the Countess Eleonora de Batthyany was the subject of endless gossip in Europe, but the Prince and the countess jealously guarded their privacy. Prince Eugene was a true cosmopolitan European in the Age of Enlightenment. These brief, private memoirs are a reflection of his views, opinions, likes and dislikes. They open a window on his times and world. Seller Inventory # AAV9781499055351
