Elizabeth I: Collected Works.

elizabeth i collected works

I will never be by violence constrained to do anything. Bookseller: , California, United States Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2000. Shakespeare, being a well-informed and fairly well-connected playwright, wrote passages in the afore mentioned plays that clearly reflect the political turmoil of the times. This long-awaited and masterfully edited volume contains nearly all of the writings of Queen Elizabeth I: the clumsy letters of childhood, the early speeches of a fledgling queen, and the prayers and poetry of the monarch's later years. As new in as new dust jacket. This Elizabethan Religious Settlement later evolved into today's Church of England. By contrast, in addition to marrying and securing the succession, Mary and Elizabeth Tudor were expected to rule as monarchs.

Collected Works by Elizabeth I

elizabeth i collected works

Her books include Puzzling Shakespeare: Local Reading and Its Discontents and Unediting the Renaissance: Shakespeare, Marlowe, Milton. When they compare these recorded versions with later manuscript or printed versions of the same speech, they sometimes find the earlier texts more vivid and vigorous, while the later ones moderate their observations with a wider audience in mind. This long-awaited and masterfully edited volume contains nearly all of the writings of Queen Elizabeth I: the clumsy letters of childhood, the early speeches of a fledgling queen, and the prayers and poetry of the monarch's later years. We are likely never to get a closer or clearer look at her. The letter to Robert Dudley on page 273 must be one of the most chilling rebukes from a boss ever! I would welcome the application of similarly progressive editorial thinking to the texts of other early modern women writers, who also deserve the degree of careful editing that Elizabeth I receives here. In the Tudor century both queens consort and queens regnant presided at court.

They include her renderings of epistles of Cicero and Seneca, religious writings of John Calvin and Marguerite de Navarre, and Horace√ʬĬôs Ars poetica, as well as Elizabeth√ʬĬôs Latin Sententiae drawn from diverse sources, on the responsibilities of sovereign rule and her own perspectives on the monarchy. Unlike most female members of royal families, she continuously presented herself through diverse channels to the English people after she ascended the throne in 1588. The anthology reveals a leading intellect of the English Renaissance and an intimate portrait of the brilliant Virgin Queen. Marcus and her coeditors have collected the Virgin Queen's letters, speeches, poems and prayers. Elizabeth's reign is known as the Elizabethan era, famous above all for the flourishing of English drama, led by playwrights such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and for the seafaring prowess of English adventurers such as Sir Francis Drake. May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting.

Elizabeth I: Collected Works, Marcus, Mueller, Rose

elizabeth i collected works

Its appealing simplicity belies an extensive exercise of editorial authority. An invaluable work of reference. Because of the volume of writings contained herein and the extensive, helpful annotations the editors have added, we are likely never to get a closer or clearer look at her. The writings of the first period, from 1533 to 1558, contain no speeches because Elizabeth was then only a princess, daughter of the executed Anne Boleyn, and her principal job was, literally, to keep her head on her shoulders; the less she said, the safer she was. I thank God I am indeed endowed with such qualities that if I were turned out of the realm in my petticoat I were able to live in any place in Christendom. A fine edition which will be indispensable to all those interested in Elizabeth I and her reign.

Elizabeth I: Collected Works (9780226504650): Leah S. Marcus, Janel Mueller, Mary Beth Rose and Elizabeth I

elizabeth i collected works

Elizabeth's solution to the perceived liability of her gender was to recreate herself through divine imagery that appropriated God's authority as her own. Although others have objected to their exclusion, that decision seems to me appropriate given the aims and audience of this book. It is well and good to read snippets of her writings in other books, but this collection is a must-have for any Tudor or Elizabeth I fan. Within this volume the reader can find heartfelt entreaties to God as well as orders to torture suspected traitors. Their annotations identify obscure meanings, biblical and classical references, and Elizabeth√ʬĬôs actual or apparent deviations from her sources. This anthology will excite scholars of Elizabethan history, but there is something here for all of us who revel in the English language. It will enable much further work on the queen.

Elizabeth I (Author of Collected Works)

His will was set aside, Mary became queen, and Lady Jane Grey was executed. Of course, producing an edition of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century documents that will please everyone is an almost impossible task, and there are some fairly obvious criticisms that could be made of this volume. Presenting original and modernized spellings in a facing-page format, these two volumes will answer the call to make all of Elizabeth√ʬĬôs writings available. The first collection of its kind, Elizabeth I reveals brilliance on two counts: that of the Queen, a dazzling writer and a leading intellect of the English Renaissance, and that of the editors, whose copious annotations make the book not only essential to scholars but accessible to general readers as well. About this Item: The University of Chicago Press, United States, 2002. A veritable feast of material in different genres. The first collection of its kind, Elizabeth I reveals brilliance on two counts; that of the Queen a dazzling writer and a leading intellect of the English Renaissance, and that of the editors, whose copious annotations make the book not only essential to scholars but accessible to general readers as well.

There is nothing better than reading Elizabeth I's writings. Most are based upon detailed and exhaustive research of primary sources. Ships same day or next business day! A veritable feast of material in different genres. An invaluable work of reference. It might be argued, for example, that there is too little on science, architecture and political thought.

Collected Works by Elizabeth I

The translations collected here trace Elizabeth√ʬĬôs steady progression from youthful evangelical piety to more mature reflections on morality, royal responsibility, public and private forms of grief, and the right way to rule. Elizabeth set out to rule by good counsel, and she depended heavily on a group of trusted advisers led by William Cecil, Baron Burghley. This long-awaited and masterfully edited volume contains nearly all of the writings of Queen Elizabeth I: the clumsy letters of childhood, the early speeches of a fledgling queen, and the prayers and poetry of the monarch's later years. This anthology will excite scholars of Elizabethan history, but there is something here for all of us who revel in the English language. She never did, however, despite numerous courtships.

The Poems of Queen Elizabeth I, ed. The first collection of its kind, Elizabeth I reveals brilliance on two counts: that of the Queen, a dazzling writer and a leading intellect of the English Renaissance, and that of the editors, whose copious annotations make the book not only essential to scholars but accessible to general readers as well. About the Author Janel Mueller is a professor of English, the William Rainey Harper Professor in the College, and dean of the Division of the Humanities at the University of Chicago. The speeches of this archetypal Renaissance figure she wrote in several languages, including ancient Greek sometimes read more like memos and her prayers occasionally seem like propaganda--but overall she was proficient enough to write in an elegant, clear voice. By establishing her position as second to God, Elizabeth relegated all men to a status beneath hers. We are likely never to get a closer or clearer look at her.

Bookseller: , California, United States University Of Chicago Press, 2000. An intriguing and intense portrait of a woman who figures so importantly in the birth of our modern world. This long-awaited and masterfully edited volume contains nearly all of the writings of Queen Elizabeth I: the clumsy letters of childhood, the early speeches of a fledgling queen, and the prayers and poetry of the monarch's later years. Elizabeth is acknowledged as a charismatic performer and a dogged survivor, in an age when government was ramshackle and limited and when monarchs in neighbouring countries faced internal problems that jeopardised their thrones. As a result of this extraordinary edition even the professors, who only may have read more than she, can now read more, much more, of her. The collection has been organised into four periods of Elizabeth's life, and then by genre within each period. That is a questionable choice, since even the most diligent editors are fully fallible.
