Краткое описание

Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire.

(Winner of the 1998 Whitbread Award for Biography) In her brilliant debut biography—the inspiration for the Oscar-winning film The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes—Amanda Foreman gives us a vital, irresistible portrait of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire (1757–1806). A warm and loving personality, she cannily used her charm and beauty to play an influential role in British politics. She was beloved by nearly everyone but her husband, who took her best friend Lady Elizabeth Foster for his mistress; as Foreman relates, the three lived together for more than 20 years, during which time both women bore the Duke's children. Writing in the Literary Review, Antonia Fraser called the book "a mesmerizing read.... The charm of Amanda Foreman's Georgiana is that it gives you all the fascinating detail you want ... and is at the same time a serious, scholarly work, based on exhaustive archival research.""I put this book down entranced by the woman. This is an outstanding début by a young biographer fully in control of her sources, and with an easy, elegant writing style. She tells a tale that calls not only for our admiration but for our compassion."—Sunday Times (London)
