Description de "Henry VIII: King and Court. Alison Weir"

'This magnificent new book is Alison Weir's greatest achievement: a detailed biography of Henry VIII, set against the cultural, social and political background of his court - the most magnificent court ever seen in England - and the splendour of his many sumptuous palaces. Seen from this new perspective, Henry VIII emerges as a fully-rounded and realistic personality, not the two-dimensional caricature of popular misconception. This book is not just an entertaining narrative packed with colourful description and a wealth of anecdotal evidence, but a comprehensive analytical study of the development of both monarch and court during a crucial period in English history. As well as challenging some recent theories, it offers controversial new conclusions based on contemporary evidence that has until now been overlooked. This is a triumph of historical writing which will appeal equally to the general reader and the serious historian.'A glittering evocation of the Tudor Court, its splendour as well as its vulgarity-a responsive, rounded portrait.' Daily Telegraph'Weir has used colourful, fresh material (much of it from unpublished archives and letters), to recreate early sixteenth-century European life and thought, within which she sets the larger-than-life figure of the king-a compelling, readable account of the life and times of the king who put England firmly on the map of power politics.' Lisa Jardine, Literary Review

Si Aliénor d'Aquitaine fut l'une des personnalités les plus importantes du Moyen Âge, elle fut aussi l'une des plus controversées. À une époque où le rôle social et politique des femmes restait insignifiant, Aliénor, ambitieuse et déterminée, imposait ses décisions, gagnant le plus souve...

The Lady Elizabeth: A Novel. Alison Weir

Rosalyn Landor distinguishes the female characters nicely, handles the British and Welsh accents well and has a charming narrator's voice. She's less successful voicing the children, who sound like squeaky toys, and her Henry VIII makes one think of Papa Bear. While the book is often tediously detai...
