[Milton Waldman] -- Interpretation and analysis of the thirty-year relationship between Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and Elizabeth, Queen of England.

      Elizabeth and Leicester is a portrait - at times a startlingly intimate one - of the tie between two of the people who forced their age; of a relationship where, unusually, a woman held all the power; of an edgy yet enduring love that still speaks to us today. There is much going on in this book, since Gristwood covers Elizabeth’s life from her childhood to her death, more or less the extent of her relationship to Leicester. It is meticulously researched yet still completely accessible, adding fresh insight to the wealth of Elizabethan scholarship and illuminating all the reasons why Elizabeth is.

        As a school-boy, in the 's, history was dull and lifeless, dreary and date-infested. Gray books, grey pictures and grey lectures/lecturers. Pick up "Elizabeth and Leicester" and the late 16th century comes vividly to life thanks to the research, literary and /5(28).
