Riassunto: This is a biography of the Earl of Clarendon, a prominent figure of the 17th century, whose achievements as a politician and as a historian remain disputed. Ollard discusses his political career which helped shape the British constitution, which has lasted in essence to the present day, his legacy of the Clarendon Building and collection of paintings plus his historical and autobiographical works, "History of the Revolution", his "Life" and "Continuation of a Life". The work follows his life from his early years to the outbreak of Civil War and the Restoration to his life as Lord Chancellor and his death in 1666. Richard Ollard is also author of "Samuel Pepys".
From Publishers Weekly:
Political architect of the Restoration, chief minister and loyal servant to Charles II, Sir Edward Hyde, Earl of Clarendon, weathered long years of exile and swung between extremes of wealth and dire poverty. In this verbose but richly textured biography, English historian Ollard (Pepys) argues that Clarendon, who actively supported plots to assassinate Oliver Cromwell, was motivated by an insistence that the rule of law must undergird the Royalist cause. The author makes us feel sympathy for this extremely vain, overbearing, witty and ambitious politician. Clarendon's friends included Ben Jonson and Thomas Hobbes, whose Leviathan he despised. A prolific historian, he much preferred domestic comfort to the intrigues of court. Ollard's compelling portrayal of this self-professed Christian sinner unintentionally shows the danger of a morality rooted in the assumption that God will work out His purposes in the political arena.
