Talleyrand is a name that seems to inspire different evaluations and reactions from different pens. In this case, it was to be the biography by Alfred Duff Cooper that I would be looking into. The cover of the book gives an idea, whether rightly or wrongly on how Talleyrand has been depicted through history/5(57).

Talleyrand is Duff Coopers much-admired look at the life of the legendary French diplomat Charles-Maurice, Prince de Talleyrand-Perigord. Coopers book is not an academic biography; it is best described as an extended biographical sketch which makes the most of Coopers broad knowledge of French history and mastery of stylish English prose/5.

Talleyrand is a tough brief in that regard-- the man writes so elegantly and sharply that mediocre writers just end up stringing together the bon mots-- not Cooper, whose own cleverness is on display, particularly in the descriptions of the Congress of is an older book, and does not make use of the last 70 years of research, so its 5/5(5).

"With time and patience," said Talleyrand, "the mulberry leaf is turned into satin."
