TURN off the TV and allow your imagination to costume these intrigues.
and Robert Deveraux,the second Earl of Essex. Lytton Strachey has written
this as a grand ,sweeping novel,mixing in lots of true life facts with his own way
of telling their' story. it makes a great read. It has a sort-of insider/tabloid/talk
show-type feel to it-and THIS really happened-to these people! It is a fascinating book.
As I read it,I couldn't help but feel futility because, I knew Robert would crash and burn
at the end. I wish he had tried to save himself,but,alas..this is tragedy on a grand scale.
Do not miss this one!
