Mark Twain, Sansculotte

Mark Twain at first calumnified the French Revolution, but over the course of his life he changed his views:

"When I finished Carlyle’s French Revolution in 1871, I was a Girondin; every time I have read it since, I have read it differently – being influenced and changed, little by little, by life and environment ... and now I lay the book down once more, and recognize that I am a Sansculotte! – And not a pale, characterless Sansculotte, but a Marat."
