When is a Salon Not a Salon? Parisian Circles

(p.134) 14 1791
Marriage and Revolution

Siân Reynolds

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the time when Roland is sent to Paris to grapple with Lyon's crippling municipal debt, incurred through exactions under the ancien regime. He lobbies the Constituent Assembly for a bail-out. Lodging on the Left Bank, the Rolands meet Brissot, and through him several leading radical politicans including Robespierre, Buzot and Pétion. This ‘petit comité’ starts meeting in their hotel rooms to coordinate policy in the Assembly. The identification of this group as ‘Mme Roland's first salon’ is discussed and questioned.

Keywords:   Paris, Constituent Assembly, Brissot, Robespierre, Buzot, Pétion, salon, petit comité
