The Earl of Essex was the last great favorite of Elizabeth I and the leading cultural patron of the final years of her reign. Dazzled by the "romantic" relationship with the queen, modern writers have branded Essex a dandy, a military incompetent, and a political dabbler, and have blamed him for the bitter factionalism that plagued English politics in the 1590s. Using an unparalleled range of manuscript and printed sources, this book presents a very different image of Essex and of the outbreak of factionalism in Elizabethan politics.

Review:

"...Hammer's book is compulsive reading - a real page-turner - and will ist well on the shelf of scholar and general reader alike...highly recommended reading." Sixteenth Century Journal

"...richly detailed...This book will be invaluable for specialists studying court politics of the later Elizabethan period..." American Historical Review

"Written with the clarity and good judgment that comes from thorough familiarity with these co,plex material, it at once establishes its author as the leading scholar of late Elizabethan studies. Let us hope that the second volume will emerge as soon as possible, to complete an outstanding feat of historical research and writing." Jrnl of Early Modern history

"All those wanting to know about the earl's career, the character of English court society and politics, or the state of international relations at the end of the sixteenth century will find important new information and insight in it. Readers of this present volume will eagerly await a sequel." Journal of Modern History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. The final decades of the reign of Elizabeth I were marked by the meteoric career of her last great favourite, Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex (1565-1601), and the outbreak of bitter political divisions at Court and across the realm. This revisionist 1999 study challenges the traditional 'romantic' image of Essex as a military incompetent and political dabbler. Studying his career between his arrival at court in 1585 and his appointment as earl marshal at the end of 1597, the book casts Essex in a new light and re-examines his role in the outbreak of factionalism in Elizabethan politics. Using an unparalleled range of manuscript and printed sources it explores the forces which drove Essex's career, why true political success remained frustratingly beyond his grasp, and how his efforts to achieve this success helped to fuel the polarisation of Elizabethan politics.
