Untitled[edit]

Not written in neutral way....ie.," About his paper, the incarnation of himself, the first thing to be said is that the man always meant what he said; no poverty, no misery or persecution, could keep him quiet; he was perpetually crying, Nous sommes trahis." "This saint like view of him only lasted a year or two before the people realized what bloodthirsty views he held and the numbers of heads he caused to fall from the guillotine." —Preceding unsigned comment added by Harris0 (talkcontribs) on January 9, 2006

??? This Article is Misnamed...[edit]

The article contains only a handful of material devoted to L'ami, and the rest is about Marat exclusively with no reference to L'Ami. There is already a Marat article. I suggest reworking the article to eliminate the extraneous stuff.

Major Re-write[edit]

I removed the unreferenced/non-neutral bio of Marat and replaced it with more relevant, referenced info on the L'Ami.

Section headings still need improvement--too many short sections! Trilliary (talk) 03:10, 17 December 2009 (UTC)Trilliary

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:L'Ami du peuple/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

There is a lot of information that is not about L'Ami du peuple, but its author. Although some details are important, there is already a Marat article that probably has much of this information.

There are some conclusions and errors that bother me, but most of those would be removed if the information about Marat's life was. Probably the biggest error is the use of present tense in "agree" on the last sentence of the second to last paragraph, which changes Marat to a present day struggle, it just needs a d. If someone wants to take the time, there is some information from the Marat article and what other information someone can find that could be put here, and there might be a bit that the Marat article can take.

I would like to present a more focused viewpoint on the actual writings and how they were influential during the French Revolution. Marat as the author can be discussed; however, I feel that the content of the writings is more important here. I plan to find at least one of Marat's papers translated to determine the intention, tone, and ultimately his techniques which had such a great impact on the people of France.
