Über diesen Titel:
Umschlagtext: Praise for Elizabeth I:
"This is my favorite among the biographies of Queen Elizabeth I. Anne Somerset presents a convincing as well as complex character at the center of her lucid narrative. She breathes new life into old sources so that we live the story again and see it afresh."
- Antonia Fraser
"The most comprehensive, the most reliable and the most readable biography of Elizabeth."
- New York Times Book Review
"Totally captivating…a wry, convincing portrait of a complex character."
- Publishers Weekly
"Somerset's thoroughly researched and exhaustively documented study will capture the reader's imagination."
- Library Journal
"An ample, stylish, and eloquent life of the queen."
- The Washington Post Book World
"Finely crafted, abundantly detailed…few biographies have explored the depth found here."
- The San Francisco Chronicle
"A gorgeous tapestry…even readers unfamiliar with the dynamic personalities of the Tudor era would do well to start their quest for knowledge here."
"A clear, moving, informed narrative."
- Kirkus Reviews
