Eugene Onegin is a bored Saint Petersburg dandy inherits a landed estate from his uncle. A quiet, precocious romantic and the exact opposite of Olga, Tatyana becomes intensely drawn to Onegin. Soon after, she bares her soul to Onegin in a letter professing her love. When they meet in person, he rejects her advances politely but dismissively and condescendingly. Eugène Onéguine est un jeune dandy pétersbourgeois, fils d'un père qui se ruine pour maintenir un train de vie dispendieux. Oisif, blasé, il a le sentiment d'avoir fait le tour des choses, et éprouve un profond spleen. La sœur aînée d'Olga, Tatiana, tombe amoureuse d'Onéguine au premier regard. Mais Eugène l'éconduit au motif qu'il ne serait pas capable de la rendre heureuse. Quelques années plus tard, Eugène, de retour de voyage, se rend à une réception. Il y retrouve Tatiana, qui a épousé un vieux général, et se rend compte qu'il a commis une énorme erreur en la repoussant. Il tombe malade d'amour, envoyant lettre sur lettre à sa bien-aimée, sans jamais recevoir de réponse.

King Henry III of France has not suffered well at the hands of posterity. Generally depicted as at best a self-indulgent, ineffectual ruler, and at worst a debauched tyrant responsible for a series of catastrophic political blunders, his reputation has long been a poor one. Yet recent scholarship has begun to question the validity of this judgment and look for a more rounded assessment of the man and his reign. For, as this new biography of Henry demonstrates, there is far more to this fascinating monarch than the pantomime villain depicted by previous generations of historians and novelists. Based upon a rich and diverse range of primary sources, this book traces Henry’s life from his birth in 1551, the sixth child of Henri II and Catherine de’ Medici. It following his upbringing as the Wars of Religion began to tear France apart, his election as king of Poland in 1573, and his assumption of the French crown a year later following the death of his brother Charles IX. The first English-language biography of Henry for over 150 years, this study thoroughly and dispassionately reassesses his life in light of recent scholarship and in the context of broader European diplomatic, political and religious history. In so doing the book not only provides a more nuanced portrait of the monarch himself, but also helps us better understand the history of France during this traumatic time.
