The Elizabethan Renaissance: The Cultural Achievement
What more can I say about this guy who surprised me so much. I am not qualified to review the content of the book and I wouldn’t presume to do so. He is far out of my lowly league as far as knowledge of the age is concerned. However, it is his uncluttered method of writing. He calls a spade a spade and doesn’t care if he offends. His is a vast fund of knowledge which shows how much I don’t know. In this book he speaks of language and literature of the nobility and the peasant, science, architecture, medicine, painting, music and the mind. And, of course, his love of All Souls, Oxford and his veneration of Elizabeth.
