Description
Information
'He satisfied the peculiar cravings of a virgin of sixty-three', writes Lytton Strachey of Essex.But what was sincere and what was acting in the behaviour of Elizabeth I, the despotic and calculating woman who suddenly appeared bewitched? And Essex's passion, was it the flattery of a careerist or a deeply rooted infatuation? From intimacy to bitter quattels, under the eyes of Burleigh, Bacon, raleigh and other members of the dazzling Court, their story unfolds to its last catasrophe - in which Essex lost his head, and Elizabeth her heart.
