Sir Walter Raleigh is in many respects the foremost example of an English renaissance man. An accomplished explorer and soldier, he was also a writer of great skill, a courtier, and a sometimes ruthless administrator. For the Victorians he represented the gentlemanly ideal of disinterested loyalty to the crown; a mixture of medieval chivalry and a very modern will to knowledge. More recent studies have focussed on his proto-imperialist attitudes and sought to reveal the tensions between Raleighand Elizabeth. In both readings Raleigh's singularity can be lost. Neither a public school educated civil servant, nor a fascist in doublet and hose, Trevelyan's Raleigh is a brilliantly realised portrait of the man and his age.
Raleigh Trevelyan is a distinguished writer whose previous works include Rome '44: The Battle for the Eternal City, The Golden Oriole, The Shadow of Vesuvius, and A Hermit Disclosed.

Descrizione libro Paperback. Condizione: Very Good. You have lived like a star at which the world has gazed, said the judge at Sir Walter Raleigh's trial. He was fortune's tennis ball, said another contemporary, to many others he was an arrogant liar. Regarded by the Spanish as the most hated of pirates, Raleigh had a thirst for wealth and power that was coupled with extraordinary creative energy. Soldier, explorer, parliamentarian, chemist, reputed atheist, patron of poets and himself a fine poet, Raleigh is the epitome of the English Renaissance man. A glittering courtier in the shark pool of Elizabethan politics, he could also be a ruthless administrator. For the generation of Republicans after his death on the scaffold, Raleigh was a hero; for the Victorians he represented the gentlemanly ideal of disinterested loyalty to the crown, while more recent studies have focused on his imperialist attitude and the tensions between himself and Elizabeth I. However he is seen, Raleigh cuts as controversial and tragic figure now as he did in his own times. This is the first major biography of Sir Walter Raleigh for many years. A brilliantly realized portrait of the man and his age, it benefits from the author's several, sometimes arduous, visits to places connected with Raleigh, including sites of the fabled El Dorado, and from extensive research in Spanish archives. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Codice articolo GOR002774213
