Provincial Life Has Lost Its Charms

(p.151) 16 1791
Marriage and Revolution

Siân Reynolds

Oxford University Press

Mme Roland returns to the Beaujolais with new friend, Sophie Grandchamp. Against expectation, Roland on his return is not elected to the Legislative Assembly by the Lyonnais. The inspectorate is abolished, so he loses his job. After hesitation, the couple return to Paris for the winter, with their daughter, to request a pension, and explore publishing ventures so as to eke out their income. Lanthenas despairing of the rural commune has invested in the important Cercle Social printing-house; and they may follow suit. Their future, although likely to be centred on the capital, now seems destined to be outside politics.

Keywords:   Beaujolais, Sophie Grandchamp, Legislative Assembly, pension, Cercle social, publishing, Paris
