Danse Macabre: Memoir Of A Polish Girl At The Time Of The Russian Revolution (1914-1924) By Irene Rochas
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Memoir of a Polish Girl at the Time of the Russian Revolution (1914-1924). Irene Rochas was born Aniela Tarnowicz in Warsaw in 1906, the youngest child in a large upper middle-class Polish family.... More > With the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Irene and her family were stranded in Moscow, and with the further outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution, they were able to return to their homeland only after a delay of four years. Irene's rediscovered narrative -- written when she was fifty years old and set in the form of a novel -- is a remembrance of those eventful years of her childhood in Moscow and Warsaw. In this sense, it is truly a "memoir". Yes, "danse macabre" is the dance of death, the last waltz to which we are all invited. But Irene's "Danse Macabre" -- with its inquisitive and empathetic tone... and its often searing imagery -- is less a rumination on the inevitability of death and more a testament to the vibrancy of life itself.
