Sir Walter Raleigh : in life and legend by Mark Nicholls( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Walter Raleigh is a figure writ large in popular imagination. Yet how can we understand this man who was soldier, voyager, visionary, courtier, politician, poet, historian, patriot and 'traitor'? Recent research has illuminated the context of his career at the Court of Elizabeth I, while much is still to be learned about Raleigh the man. Drawing on new texts of his poems, letters and travel narratives, Nicholls and Williams use Raleigh's own writings to explore his ideas, personality, feelings and values. No biography of Raleigh can be complete without an assessment of his posthumous reputation. Myths that accumulated around him tell us something about the man himself, but far more about the perceptions of his own and subsequent generations. Raleigh's talents as a writer ensured his positive legacy, but the appropriation of his legend for so many differing political uses has left us with a complex picture. Exploring how the many re-workings of Raleigh all touch on truth, Nicholls and Williams provide a new account of the life of this ever compelling figure. - Publisher
Investigating Gunpowder plot by Mark Nicholls( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes a fresh look at the most famous treason case in English history, a complex tale of treachery, suspicion, rebellion and retribution. [The author] shows how, starting with the most slender of leads, the Jacobean government built up a full picture of the conspiracy and tracked down the guilty men and brought them to justice. The story does not end with the bloody executions of Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators in 1606. For the first time in a book on the Gunpowder treason, [the author] investigates in depth the role in the plot played by the ninth earl of Northumberland, seen by many as the plotters' logical choice for a protector of the realm after blast, who was imprisoned in the Tower for sixteen years on suspicion of complicity. By examining the earl's political career in the years around 1605, the author shows how the government investigations, though shedding much light on the plot, never revealed the whole truth. [The author] cuts through the distortions of centuries of political and religious propaganda to explain the real motives of the Gunpowder plotters. [The author] disposes of the 'conspiracy theory, ' which holds that the king's chief minister, Robert Cecil, Earl of Salisbury, framed the conspirators for his own political purposes, and ... sheds considerable light on the workings of early Jacobean government, particularly the privy council. [This book] should appeal to anyone interested in English history, as well as historians and students of seventeenth-century England"--
