Now, There Was a Monarch!

July 7, 2014 With Carol Levin and Robert Bucholltz

Elizabeth the First had a much more demanding assignment (job description) than the current Queen of England. The arts of ambiguity (combined, where necessary, with ruthlessness) seem to have been the basis of her effective and creative rule. All of this is under delightfully detailed examination in this 2003 conversation with two specialists in “Elizabethan” history.
