About this title


An imaginative reconstruction of the mind of the young girl who was to become Queen Elizabeth I of England, that effulgent, daunting, and perplexing figure, one of the most influential women in history. Scores of theories have been attached to the personality behind the indomitable Virgin Queen. Her love life, especially, has been the subject of intense speculation. But what made Elizabeth the person she was, a scholar and diplomat, courageous, capricious, and awe-inspiring? Sitwell helps solve the mystery; she focuses on the Queen's early experiences and traces their dramatic repercussions on her life.

About the Author:

Edith Sitwell (1887-1964) was born into an aristocratic family and, along with her brothers, Osbert and Sacheverell, had a significant impact on the artistic life of the 20s. She encountered the work of the French symbolists, Rimbaud in particular, early in her writing life and became a champion of the modernist movement, editing six editions of the controversial magazine Wheels. She remained a crusading force against philistinism and conservatism throughout her life and her legacy lies as much in her unstinting support of other artists as it does in her own poetry.
