Princess Dashkoff : Life and Writings

Mary Berry on the Life and writings (including memoirs) of the Princess Dashkoff, published 1840: 'The whole work -- of which I saw only the first part, which comes down to 1783, when she returned to Russia after her tour through Italy -- is the picture, not only of a human mind and character placed in most extraordinary circumstances, and acting a most extraordinary part, but endowed by nature with those extraordinary powers, and that energy, which I have ever thought [...] always accompanied by [...] warm, pure, and ardent affections of the heart.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Mary Berry      Print: Book
