KIRKUS REVIEW

The Duc de Saint-Simon's highly political period, in the second volume of Lucy Norton's admirable translation (1968, p. 746). Here too the flow of Saint-Simon's masterful narrative is preserved, including character sketches and gossip, as well as reports of the death of the Dauphin, the quarrel of the dukes with Parliament, and the hour by hour report-of the terminal illness of Louis XIV.
