I ve been reading this
Book For A Long Time for a long time was a pretty fast read until t hit the middle and then I lost my place Bloody Seoul in the book and then this week I started reading from I place I vaguely remember Not to say this was bad or anything just that the subject was not one of my favorites Elizabeth s reigns not one I m specially Migritude interested so I don t really read much about this time period or her but this book gave me a good general view of what was happeningn England s politics I mostly picked The Color Purple it up because I was curious about Elizabeth and Robert Dudley s relationship howt was knowing she was a ueen and wouldn t marry just anyone but allowing this man to be that close maybe for love or companionship Sarah Gristeood Truth and Nothing But is a good writer very sympathetic This book gave a deeper looknto the lives of the ueen and her favorite the Earl of Leicester The politics of the time were just as complicated as they are today perhaps much so because of the lack of modern day technology It was an educational look Negotiate the best deal into Robert Dudley snfluences on his ueen Very dense but what wonderful detail and nsight Great research that shines a bit of a different light on E and L First I would like to say that I found everything n this book very fascinatingEven though most of the nfo was political n nature and not so much personalI still was captivated from page oneI found MsGristwood s theories ntriguing and the writing and research seemed very well doneBut I was hoping for a ntimate portrayal of their relationship and I just didn t feel this was the book I was looking forVery enjoyable read otherwise and One from None if you happen to like reading about ueen Elizabeth s reignthe politics of the times or those closest to her this ones for you I don t have much Im Afraid of Men interestn any of the Royals love affairs to begin with but I thought I could get some background on the politics of the time while waiting for the newest Shardlake to come out To her credit the author does spend considerable time and effort Reforesting Faith in explaining how Elizabeth played her marriageabilityn the game of power politics which Peggy Deans Guide to Nature Drawing and Watercolor is fairlynteresting But about 23 through I just got tired of Foursome it Besides the author follows the convention of sometimes referring to Nobles by their given name sometimes by their family name sometimes by their honorific I get tired of keeping who s who s straight Besides I think a apt subtitle would be Speculations about the Virgin ueen since she speculates a good dealn a chatty conversationalist style I do not much enjoy Not a bad book just not Corduroys Garden interesting enough to me Elizabeth and Leicester the Virgin ueen and her sweet Robin are one of the great romances of historymmortalised
history books Hollywood movies alike Most people have some awareness of their relationship the great ueen and the man she loved but could never marry the age old uestion of whether the Virgin ueen truly was a virgin and whether she and Leic. A gripping account of one of history’s most fascinating of alliances–the love affair between ueen Elizabeth I and her political advisor and confidant Robert Dudley Earl of LeicesterNo one knows uite when and where their relationship began though Leicester once said he’d known Elizabeth since she was eight years old They shared an What Is the Story of Scooby-Doo? important commonality of experience both with a parent dead on the headsm. Ss welcome addition to my burgeoning bookshelf on the Tudors I always love books "About The Tudor Monarchy I "the Tudor monarchy I enjoyed this book A lot of books on thisin history books
SUBJECT TEND TO GET REPETITIVE ITtend to get repetitive My Father Left Me Ireland it exciting to find a book from a different perspective This book examinesn detail the relationship between the Virgin ueen and her long term confidante Robert Dudley The subject of Elizabeth and Robert Antisemitism is one that creates a lot of discussion and very divided opinions Most historians have differentdeas about who controlled the relationship Was the ueen Stumbling Giants in complete control and Dudley her pawn Or was Robert the power behind the throne who had the most powerful womann the country under his power Then there are the most famous uestions Who killed Robert Dudley s first wife Amy Was Sabrina Corina it an accident suicide or murder Ift was murder who did Anabella Giggles All Night! (Annabella it and what was the reason Wast for love or for political reasons The big uestion has always been did they or didn t they Was Elizabeth a true Virgin ueen or was Robert her secret lover Anyone who has read about Elizabeth s monarchy knows the uestions and probably has their own opinions I know I do Unfortunately Patient Safety Ethics its really difficult to get the facts without an author s opinion clouding the Fat in the Fifties isssue Some writers only give the facts as they want to see them or even excludedeas documentation and contemperary accounts that don t agree with their preconcieved Kent Island ideas All of that to say Sarah Gristwood doesn t force her opinion on the readersnstead she gives every side to each controversial ssue She provides detailed sources and provides some documentation that I had never seen before
I Liked How Sheliked how she show some deas as unlikely but she never says anything Born to Run is completelympossible She simply examines all sides of an After the Flood issue I would reccomend this book to anyone who loves Tudor or European history It would probably be hard for someone who doesn t know a little about the period to understand parts of this book becauset assumes a basic knowledge of Tudor history It could also possibly be difficult for anyone who New Worlds for All isn tnterested The Three Coffins (Dr. Gideon Fell, in the period I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did Happy Reading 35 stars If you re unfamiliar with the life of ueen Elizabeth I and the people who surrounded her you might find this book a little overwhelming Butf you ve read a fair share of biographies about the ueen you ll find this one to be Generic illuminating certainly an accomplishment given all that has been published This author may do to Leicester what Antonia Fraser did for the revision of Marie Antoinetten history By the books end and after a very thorough analysis of the relationship and a respectful debate about the various perceptions of Leicester you really have to revise your opinion of the man and of the virgin ueen I had recently seen the brilliant new film with the goddess Cate Blanchett and found the book an excellent companion piece to the film or vice versa.
