The Elizabethan Renaissance by A. L Rowse( Book )

66 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and held by 2,888 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."--Jacket
The expansion of Elizabethan England by A. L Rowse( Book )

68 editions published between 1955 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,966 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
