Sinopsis: The Lisle Letters consist of the personal, official, and business correspondence of the household of Arthur Plantagenet, Viscount Lisle, the illegitimate but acknowledged son of Edward IV, during the years 1533 to 1540 when he was Lord Deputy of Calais. These seven critical years in English history were marked by the rise, ascendency, and fall of Thomas Cromwell and the letters reflect the mixture of passion, terror, and politics that was the court of Henry VIII. They also present the everyday concerns of the Lisle household. No other source provides such an abundance of detail about daily life - marriage, child rearing, education, clothing, food, and furnishing. The Lisle Letters are the Tudor world in microcosm.
About the Author: Muriel St. Clare Byrne (1895-1983) worked for decades to create the six-volume edition of the sixteenth-century letters of Arthur Plantagenet, Lord Lisle. She was a lecturer at Oxford University, the University of London, and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She was the author or editor of several other books about sixteenth-century England, and also co-authored, with her friend Dorothy L Sayers, the play Busman’s Honeymoon.
