I, Elizabeth by Rosalind Miles

Image

Miles takes a new look at Elizabeth I’s life by telling of her impressive 45-year reign in her own words. I loved the tone of this book. The Virgin Queen sounds haughty, witty, vain, analytical, intelligent, and very self-aware. I disliked how the book focuses disproportionately on her love affairs over politics. However, I assume that where those two intersect is where there’s more information around this famous, long-ago queen.
