Chapter Summary

In the summer of 1853, in the new atmosphere of war-mongering and heighthened anti-Russian feeling, and braving the diktats of imperial censorship against the French opposition's work, the republican Le Siècle serialised Michelet's &t;Madame Rosetti. Michelet's portrait of her was more than a circumstantial deference to the Romanians' need for and construction of their own symbolic, Marianne-like figure. On 17 August 1853, Jules Michelet wrote to Armand Lévy, congratulating him on the publication of his own pro-Romanian pamphlet, La Russie sur le Danube, which included a protest by the Romanians against the latest Russian occupation and an earlier exchange of letters between Dumitru Brătianu and Lord Dudley Stuart. Michelet's correspondence with the Romanian exiles continued in the last months.
