The England of Elizabeth; the structure of society by A. L Rowse ( Book )
113 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Elizabethan Age is arguably that greatest in English history. Furthermore it is not something dead and apart from us: it is alive and all around us. England contains the visible memorials of Elizabethan society: the houses they built; the objects they cherished; the patterns they imposed upon the very landscape. Rowse's classic study is a detailed account of that society and tradition from the lowest social class to the men and women who governed the realm. This reissue of Rowse's famously vivid portrayal of the Elizabethan world is complemented by a major introduction from Christopher Haigh which offers both a reflection on Rowse's masterpiece and an assessment of the Elizabethan Age
The Elizabethan Renaissance by A. L Rowse ( Book )
70 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and held by 3,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In The Cultural Achievement, Mr. Rowse chronicles the astonishingly rich cultural flowering that marked the reign of Elizabeth I. He brings vividly to life the age's poetry, painting, sculpture, minor arts, and, above all, the tightly knit world of the theatre, in which a community of playwrights and actors worked with and sometimes against each other. He devotes individual chapters to the masters of Elizabethan music: Byrd, Dowland, Weelkes, Gibbons, and their followers, and to the science of the English Renaissance, with discussions of Gilbert's great work on magnetism and Harvey's discovery of the circulation of the blood."--BOOK JACKET
The expansion of Elizabethan England by A. L Rowse ( Book )
66 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This classic study of Elizabethan society, first published by Macmillan in 1955, is now available in a new edition. In this masterpiece, Rowse follows the first steps of Elizabethan England - with its legendary adventurers and merchants - to Imperial Greatness. He skilfully examines the expansion of society both by state and individual enterprise, starting at home then travelling across the seas to Ireland, the riches of the East and the New World of the Americas. For this reissue on the 400th anniversary of Elizabeth's death, bestselling historian Alison Weir has written a new forword, setting Rowse's work in context for a new 21st-century readership
