9780192840905: The Children of Henry VIII
Review:

John Guy is that rare cross: a scholar who also writes for the popular market. It shows here, as he sketches with verve and fluency the education and the beliefs, as well as, briefly, the reigns of these last Tudors. But where he excels is in illuminating the relationships between the squabbling siblings. They say if you've got lemons, make lemonade, and in Guy's hands the story of The Children of Henry VIII is fresh, sparkling and sharp. ( Literary Review)

[A] smart, lively little book enriched by the reliable pleasure of Guy's prose, his pen dancing as deftly about his compact historical portraits as Horenbout's brush once did over his stunning miniatures. ( The Sunday Times)

Guy, whose prose is commendably readable, has a real gift for bringing Tudor history to life for 21st-century readers. ( The Independent on Sunday)

This may be a well known story, but Guy presents it with typical narrative flair and attention to detail, producing a book with obvious appeal. ( BBC History Magazine)

With the panache for which Guy's work has become known, The Children of Henry VIII portrays the childhood nightmares of Britain's most celebrated dysfunctional family... [It] is a portrait miniature of a book, skilfully portraying the character of an age, yet managing to do so with enough detail and care to bring its subjects to life. ( Times Literary Supplement)

The stunning psychodrama that was the Tudor court is brilliantly evoked in John Guy's little book ( The Lady)

Well-written, well-researched and a lot of fun. ( The Glasgow Herald)

Descripción Oxford. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Estado de conservación: New. The author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and Whitbread Award winner "My Heart is My Own": The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, John Guy here lifts the historical veil to reveal the family dynamics at the heart of the Tudor dynasty in the court of Henry VIII. Henry fathered four living children—Mary, Elizabeth, and Edward, and the bastard Henry Fitzroy—each by a different mother. Possessed of quick wits and strong wills, their characters were defined partly by the educations they received, and partly by events over which they had no control. And though they idolized their father, they differed radically over how to perpetuate Henry's legacy. Guy shows how the various circumstances of their childhoods shaped their lives and England itself."This is a short, furtive work, written in a plaintive, accessible style, which functions as a sort of primer on the story of Henry VIII's three children who followed him on the throne. Indeed, this work has wide-ranging appeal for all manner of readers, whether casual or scholarly."—Sixteenth-Century Journal 258. Nº de ref. de la librería 50930
