9780671417468: The First Elizabeth

In this remarkable biography, Carolly Erickson brings Elizabeth I to life and allows us to see her as a living, breathing, elegant, flirtatious, diplomatic, violent, arrogant, and outrageous woman who commands our attention, fascination, and awe.

With the special skill for which she is acclaimed, Carolly Erickson electrifies the senses as she evokes with total fidelity the brilliant colors of Elizabethan clothing and jewelry, the texture of tapestries, and even the close, perfumed air of castle rooms. Erickson demonstrates her extraordinary ability to discern and bring to life psychological and physical reality.

Review:

"Even more readable and absorbing than the justly praised works of Tuchman and Fraser." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"A masterpiece of narrative, a story so absorbing it is as hard to put down as a fine novel." --Edward M. White, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Carolly Erickson is a great interpreter of history. She writes political history, but imbeds it into social, and even more, humane history. She's likely to be the Barbara Tuchman of her generation." --David Herlihy, Charles Lea Professor of History, Harvard University

."A vivid and eminently readable portrait of history's favorite Tudor, [Queen Elizabeth I]." --The New York Times Book Review
