Scholars and Poets Talk About Queens is a lively and erudite collection, unusual in an especially appealing way. This collection of essays shows how queens were represented in the Middle Ages and Renaissance through primary accounts, chronicles, and literary representations. The book also contains modern poetry and short plays about these same queens, allowing readers to understand and appreciate them both intellectually and emotionally. Contributors study a wide range of queens including such famous and fascinating women as Queen Elizabeth I, Cleopatra, Hecuba, the Empress Matilda, Mary Stuart, Margaret of Anjou, Catherine of Aragon, and the pirate queen Grace O'Malley. By pairing scholarly essays with contemporary poems about them, the collection demonstrates the continued relevance and immediacy of these powerful and fascinating women.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 272 pages. Scholars and Poets Talk About Queens is a lively and erudite collection, unusual in an especially appealing way: not only are there essays about a range of queens and how they were represented in the Middle Ages and Renaissance through primary accounts, chronicles, and literary representations, but the book also contains modern poetry and short plays about these same queens, allowing readers to understand and appreciate them both intellectually and emotionally. Queens include such famous and fascinating women as Hecuba, Cleopatra, the Empress Matilda, Margaret of Anjou, Catherine of Aragon, Mary Stuart, and Queen Elizabeth I, and Grace OMalley, a pirate queen. One can find, for example, an essay on Mary Stuarts responses to her widowhoods paired with Marys lamentation from the afterlife. After reading the analysis of the Empress Matildas efforts to gain the throne of England, one can also see the character of the much older Matilda playing chess with her daughter-in-law Eleanor of Aquitaine. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137534897
