His Marmoreal Calm

"The formal perfection and clarity of her prose recall the work of one of her heroes, Edward Gibbon. Yet she contemplated and described in rapid, vivid detail scenes of past and present horror that would have robbed even the unflappable historian of the Roman Empire of
his marmoreal calm."
Anthony Grafton, introduction to The Thirty Years War by C. V. Wedgwood
