Fiscal Status at Death[edit]

The article currently asserts (sans citation) that Lamartine died in poverty. However, page 258 of Wilfrid Thorley's "A Bouquet from France" states that "two years before his death... the empire granted him a capital sum which relieved further anxiety." I'll soon be updating the article accordingly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.219.79.141 (talk) 01:00, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

What is the revelence of his opinions about mohammad? or what makes his opinions about the russian tzar less important? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.214.102.99 (talk) 10:26, 24 August 2009 (UTC)


A year and a half later, I agree. In all of Lamartine's career, his opinion of Muhammad must be among the least important. The mam wrote the first great romantic poem, and there's not a word of it quoted in this article. I'm taking the quote on Muhammad out.
