The Expansion of Elizabethan England by A L Rowse
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The narrative continues in Rowse’s inimitable style of love for his subject and at times his derogatory humour. He dwells in depth on the lives of such people as Lord Burghley, Leicester, Essex, Drake, Sidney and many many more. Myths are exploded and new insights gleefully stated throwing in anecdotes of among others Shakespeare and Marlowe. Totally engrossing.
