The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, 1880, Vol. 50 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Saturday Review of Politics, Literature, Science and Art, 1880, Vol. 50 But there can be no doubt that to French Republicans there has always seemed something especially romantic, inspiriting, and even grand in the taking of the Bastille. The news that the great prison had been taken and was to be razed was hailed throughout Europe as a sign that a new era had dawned and that the people were to be greater than the kings. Even at St. Petersburg, we are told, men of all nations ﬂung themselves into each other's arms and wept, or were taken to weep, for joy. The amiable' cowper had' already assured his readers that there was not an English heart that would not leap to hear that the horrid towers of the Bastille had fallen.
