Read full description of the books:



Esta es la historia de una modesta princesa alemana que a los 14 años de edad fue enviada a Rusia con el único fin de que se casase y diese un heredero al imperio, y que acabó reinando durante 34 años. De ella se nos han conservado tres versiones distintas: la de una ilustrada que mantenía correspondencia con Diderot y con Voltaire; la de una mujer corrompida que cambiaba constantemente de amantes (la “Mesalina del norte”), y la de una gobernante despótica, decidida a modernizar Rusia, que mereció por ello que se la recordase como “la Grande”. Robert K. Massie se ha enfrentado a este laberinto de imágenes contradictorias para buscar la verdad humana del personaje y ofrecernos, en contrapartida, el ”retrato de una mujer”. Autor de obras de tanto éxito como Nicolás y Alejandra y Pedro el Grande, por las que obtuvo el Premio Pulitzer, Massie, que es uno de los maestros de la biografía literaria, ha conseguido de nuevo un libro memorable, del que los críticos han dicho que nos ofrece “una gran historia contada por un maestro de la narración”.

Read information about the author

Ebook Catalina la Grande: Retrato de una mujer read Online! Robert Kinloch Massie (born 1929) is an American historian, writer, winner of a Pulitzer Prize, and a Rhodes Scholar.

Born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1929, Massie spent much of his youth in Nashville, Tennessee and currently resides in Westchester County, New York in the village of Irvington. He studied American history at Yale University and modern European history at Oxford University on his Rhodes Scholarship. Massie went to work as a journalist for Newsweek from 1959 to 1964 and then took a position at the Saturday Evening Post.

After he and his family left America for France, Massie wrote and published his breakthrough book, Nicholas and Alexandra, a biography of the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, his wife, Alexandra of Hesse, and their family and cultural/political milieu. Massie's interest in the Tsar's family was triggered by the birth of his son, the Rev. Robert Kinloch Massie, who suffers from hemophilia, a hereditary disease that also afflicted the last Tsar's son, Alexei. In 1971, the book was the basis of an Academy Award winning film of the same title. In 1995, in his book The Romanovs: The Final Chapter, Massie updated Nicholas and Alexandra with much newly-discovered information.

In 1975, Robert Massie and his then-wife Suzanne chronicled their experiences as the parents of a hemophiliac child and the significant differences between the American and French health-care systems in their jointly-written book, Journey.

Massie won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Biography for Peter the Great: His Life and World. This book inspired a 1986 NBC mini-series that won three Emmy Awards, (Peter the Great (TV Series)) and starred Maximilian Schell, Laurence Olivier and Vanessa Redgrave.
