9780415114813: Mary Queen of Scots: Romance and Nation

As an historical figure Mary Queen of Scots has been perpetually represented on canvas, page and stage, and has captured the British imagination since the time of her death in 1587. The 'real' Mary Stuart however has remained an enigma.
Mary Queen of Scots: Romance and Nation sheds light on Mary's life by exploring four main themes:
* the history of Mary's representation in Britain from the late Tudor period focusing on key periods in the formation of the British identity and closely analysing several texts against a background of the visual, musical and literary works of each period
* the reasons why those representing Mary have been so conscious that her image was largely a debatable fiction
* the identification of symbolic styles, using Mary to reveal the habits of representation in each historical period
* The link between the image of Mary Stuart and Britain's long struggle to define itself as a single nation, focusing on the roles of gender and religion in this development.

About the Author:

Jayne Lewis is Associate Professor of English at UCLA.

Review:

"A very good book...struck out on a new and very original line. Historians and literary scholars will certainly find it important."
-Dr. Jenny Wormald, St. Hilda's College, Oxford
"Interesting and impressive...at the cutting edge of works on Mary Queen of Scots."
-Robin S. Oggins, SUNY, Binghamton
"Jayne Lewis brilliantly constructs Mary Stuart's 'dream-life' from the moment of her beheading to the birth of the modern era. This is post-modernism at its best: reflexive, thoughtful and poetic."
-Stella Tillyard, European University Institute, Florence
