Marriage and Revolution

Siân Reynolds

Oxford University Press

This chapter, based on copious correspondence, reconstructs the Rolands’ private life in Amiens (1781–1784) and the Beaujolais, from 1784: everyday routines, diet, illnesses and remedies, occupations, and gradual responsibility for the farm at Le Clos la Platière, combining rural life with Roland's inspection duties. Paris seems a long way off and, like Candide, the couple seems likely to settle for cultivating their garden.

Keywords:   Amiens, Beaujolais, Le Clos, medecine, countryside, private life, occupations, Candide
