The Queen's Bastard

The Queen's BastardDear authors everywhere, Entire chapters in italics are annoying and unnecessary Italics are to emphasize important points If you believe your readers are too stupid to realize when a different character s voice is being used, you 1 are a poor character writer, 2 don t respect your readers and 3 could simply use the device of using the character s name as the chapter title.For the record, I do not read chapters printed entirely in italicized type Therefore, I read only about half of this book The parts I did read were not too bad.

Un excelente libro para los amantes de la historia el cual narra la vida del hijo bastardo de la reina Isabel I, el cual esta excelentemente bien documentado gracias a la ardua investigaci n de la autora y que une todos esos puntos de una manera magistral relat ndonos la vida de este personaje llamado Arthur, he de confesar que me tarde ley ndolo mas de lo que esperaba pero es que hay ciertas partes en las cuales la narrativa se hace un poco pesada y un tanto aburrida pero fuera de eso nos llena de puntos interesante que tal vez desconoc amos de la vida de la reina y que en parte son verdad mezclado con ficci n pero que nos deja con la duda y probablemente la certeza de que pudo ser verdad, al conocer el trabajo de esta autora me han dado ganas de leer mas de ella por lo bien documentado que esta su trabajo Todos los a os, sin propon rmelo, termino leyendo alg n libro ambientado en la poca isabelina El a o pasado fueron Isabel y Essex Lytton Strachey y Mar a Estuardo Stefan Zweig Sabiendo a grandes rasgos su historia, nunca me aburre.Con esta novela, me han dado ganas de montar a caballo Uno de mis animales preferidos Tienen gran protagonismo.Encontrar is varias desviaciones hist ricas el hecho del que parte ya es bastante cuestionable pero no deja de ser entretenida, y un poco telenovela venezolana pero eso no me ha importado Los gui os a personajes de esa poca y episodios que narra la vida de Arthur y su participaci n en algunos sucesos hist ricos lo compensan todo Muy bien cerrada. Mio affezionato popolo, cominci Elisabetta con voce vigorosa e ferma i miei consiglieri,temendo per la mia vita, non volevano che io venissi qui fra di voi Ma come potete vedere non ho prestato loro ascolto, perch io credo nella lealt dei miei sudditi che sono la mia forza e non la mia debolezza E cos sono venuta qui, al culmine della battaglia, per vivere o morire con voi Posso avere il corpo debole e fragile di una donna, prosegu Elisabetta, la voce elevata fin quasi a un grido ma ho il cuore e le viscere di un re, e di un re d Inghilterra per giunta If you ever found yourself sitting around after watching the yearly Queen Elizabeth movie and thinking, Man, will the whole Elizabeth story thing EVER get old then this book shouts, YES IT S OLD Had to force myself to finish it Several times, after a few chapters, I felt I d watched some Wal Mart produced, Hallmark channel morality play that a crazed producer decided to set in Elizabethan England instead of the Cracker Barrel esque Smokey Mountains The most redeeming part of the book is that it s nearly ten years old so, hopefully, the movie window for it has closed. I wish the book focused on Arthur Dudley and less on the Queen and Robert Dudley I understand the need for historical context, however the switching in perspective was distracting and in my opinion unnecessary. Historically the book was good Learned quite a bit about William of Orange and Phillip of Spain that I did not know though I have read many Elizabeth books The character of Arthur however, while apparently historical, was not believable His interactions with Elizabeth and Robin were too contrived, and his survival in battles, etc., unbelievable Would have been nice, but just read too much like a simple fairy tale and not a book to have any merit Disappointing. In this book in which Robin Maxwell draws upon some historic clues to posit that Queen Elizabeth and Robin Dudley had a baby early in their relationship The pregnancy was hidden through cleverness of dressing and also the Queen s summer Progress in which she travels throughout the realm to show her support for the people and gain theirs for herself I am reading this historical fiction just after reading a history of Catherine de Medici, Queen and Queen Regent of France during the Valois reigns Catherine and Elizabeth both were dealing with religious factions and wars within their own kingdoms and had some direct dealings with each other In Robin Maxwell s historical fiction, she makes the idea of this young man, Arthur Dudley Southern, appear as a possible heir to the throne of England but she does not make that a goal for Arthur himself He, like his birth father, is a lover and trainer of horses and his assigned father supports his love of horses and makes sure that he has an appropriate horse for his age Maxwell allows the preteenage Arthur to have some time with Robin Dudley in which Dudley encourages him in his studies as well as his horsemanship She also allowed him to have a shorter amount of time with Elizabeth This occurred when Dudley later, the Earl of Leicester and Elizabeth visited the small estate on which Arthur and his assigned family live His time with Dudley is intimate and personal but his time with Elizabeth is during a hunt in which she finds him a fine fellow hunter As he grows up and then begins to serve as an cavalryman and then a spy within the English army, we as readers are allowed to follow his motivations and the events of his life His adult life fits with the real history of the age and Maxwell outlines how she chose to treat Arthur Dudley as the real son of Robin and Elizabeth I was quite satisfied with this as a piece of historical fiction with a good embedding in actual history.I will stop now rather than give spoilers but the ending of the book was quite satisfactory to me.

Robin Maxwell began writing novels about the historical figures she had been obsessing about since graduating from Tufts University with a degree in Occupational Therapy Her first novel, The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn, now in its 24th printing, won two YA awards and has been translated into fourteen languages The Wild Irish an epic tale of Ireland s rebel queen, Grace O Malley closed ou
