Abstract:

Empress Catherine II brought Europe to Russia, and Russia to Europe, during her long and eventful reign (1762-1796). She fostered the Enlightenment and greatly expanded the empire created by Tsar Ivan the Terrible, shifting the balance of power in Europe eastward. Famous for her will to power and for her dozen lovers, Catherine was also a prolific and gifted writer. She published political theory, journalism, comedies, operas, and history, while writing thousands of letters as she corresponded with Voltaire and other public figures. Her memoirs provide an unparalleled window into eighteenth-century Russia and the mind of an absolute ruler. This new translation from the French is scrupulously faithful to her words and is the first for which translators have consulted original manuscripts written in Catherine's own hand.--From publisher description.
