Bonaparte

Author: Patrice Gueniffey
Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag
ISBN: 9783518752081
Release Date: 2017-10-09
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

An Biographien über Napoléon herrscht kein Mangel. Die neue umfangreiche Schilderung seines Lebens von Patrice Gueniffey unterscheidet sich fundamental von den bisherigen Darstellungen. Sie rückt Bonaparte in den Zusammenhang der Moderne. Für Gueniffey ist diese historische Gestalt beispielhaft für die Neuzeit: Er repräsentiert jenen Typus, der seiner Meinung nach selbst die widrigsten Umstände bezwingen kann, vorausgesetzt, er hat die entsprechende Begabung, Energie und Tatkraft. Diese Vorstellung des modernen Menschen ist, wie diese Biographie für Bonaparte belegt, mit den historischen Gegebenheiten nicht vereinbar: Sie deckt hinter den Intention von Bonaparte die Selbstlogik unabhängiger Prozesse wie die Initiierung solcher angeblich historischen Abläufe die Spuren subjektiven Handelns auf. Bonaparte zeigte sich in relativ kurzer Zeit in vielen, voneinander abweichenden, Rollen: er war unter anderem korsischer Patriot, (während der Französischen Revolution) Verfechter des Jakobinismus, Thermidorianer, ein „Feldherr“, er war Diplomat, Schöpfer eines neuen Rechts, republikanischer Diktator, Begründer einer Erbmonarchie: Die vorliegende Biographie widmet sich in aller Ausführlichkeit und Genauigkeit diesen Positionen: von der des jungen Napoléon bis zur Selbstermächtigung als Konsul auf Lebenszeit im Jahre 1802. Damit macht Patrice Gueniffey, verständlich, unterhaltsam, anhand neuer Forschungsergebnisse und überraschender Einblicke und Synthesen, nachvollziehbar, warum Bonaparte zu Napoléon wurde.
