Bonjour Margaret,

If you wish to learn a bit more about views at the time of the Revolution, here are two links to two famous writers (Edmund Burke and Thomas Paine) who witnessed (from afar or close) the French Revolution. They both expressed opposite and strong views on the Revolution.

Bonne lecture ! ;-)

Hi Margaret,

Not clear about what you are querying but I would expect "C'est possible que" should be followed by a verb in the subjunctive mood. That is not the case in your headline text.

Hope this helps.

Jim

C'etait une guerre entre les pauvres et quel qui avaient beaucoup d'argent.

Bonjour Margaret,

Yes, in parts. It is all about the people's fight against an absolute monarchy where the people are taxed unfairly whilst the French aristocracy and clergy keep their privileges. It's not just about the haves and the have-nots. It's about fighting for a fairer system where everyone is rewarding fairly and can express their views freely (abolishing absolute power).

Merci pour votre contribution et bonne journée ! ;-)
