Marriage and Revolution

The Rolands’ only child, Eudora, is born in Amiens in 1781. Mme Roland's devotion to breast-feeding is well attested, but this chapter goes in detail into Eudora's upbringing, in which both parents are deeply concerned. During his wife's long visit to Paris in 1784 Jean-Marie cares for the child as his many unpublished letters relate. The couple try to handle childcare and their daughter's education while both are busy in writing and research, a dilemma faced by academic couples in later ages.
