Writing the Revolution

Lindsay A. H. Parker

Oxford University Press

Chapter 6 exposes cracks in the veneer of Rosalie’s Jacobinism. Although she maintained a strong sense of patriotism and pride in her son, she also regretted the violence. When the National Convention arrested Robespierre on 9 Thermidor, Rosalie’s family was in danger. Jules was imprisoned. Rosalie spent fourteen months trying to secure Jules’s release, which she did. The accumulation of anxiety that she felt during the Terror, sadness over her Jacobin friends’ executions, and fear that her son would also be killed led her to feel tremendous disappointment in the Revolution.

Keywords:   Reign of Terror, Thermidor, Emotional Regimes, Marc-Antoine Jullien
