Book Description HarperCollins, Great Britain, 2003. Softcover. Condition: Very Good. A study in vanity and ambition, madness and resignation Sir Walter Ralegh (he pronounced it 'Raw-lie') was the greatest courtier of his day, Elizabeth's favourite, dashing, brilliant, wily and powerful. Many books have been written about him, but none has taken as its subject his extraordinary last months, during the summer of 1618 when, his last voyage a failure and under great suspicion from James I, he was escorted back to London by Sir Lewis Stucley; the tragi-comic story of this journey, from Plymouth to the scaffold, of Ralegh's grotesque behaviour along the way, of the web of deceit and counter-treachery woven between him and his reviled and much misunderstood betrayer 'Judas' Stucley, and of their travelling companion the French physician and double agent Dr Manourie, has not been told. Around this last journey will be linked the other players in the drama: Bess, Ralegh's handsome, resourceful and distracted wife; Carew, their thirteen-year-old son; and Samuel King, privateering captain and link with past glories. On countless occasions Ralegh has the opportunity to escape, and refuses it; then, when he at last opts for freedom (in a false beard), he finds himself betrayed again. A fabulous book bringing the most glamorous of English past back to life. 242 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; Biography & Autobiography; Biography.
