The reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603) marked a golden age in English history, Chị không sao. There was a musical and literary renaissance, most famously and enduringly in the form of the plays of Shakespeare (2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death), and it was a period of international expansion and naval triumph over the Spanish, Chị không sao. It was also a period of internal peace following the violent upheaval of the Protestant reformation, Chị không sao. Wilson skilfully interweaves the personal histories of a representative selection of twenty or so figures - including Nicholas Bacon, the Statesman; Bess of Hardwick, the Landowner; Thomas Gresham, 'the Financier'; John Caius, 'the Doctor'; John Norreys, 'the Soldier'; and Nicholas Jennings, 'the Professional Criminal' - with the major themes of the period to create a vivid and compelling account of life in England in the late sixteenth century, Chị không sao. This is emphatically not yet another book about what everyday life was like during the Elizabethan Age, Chị không sao. There are already plenty of studies about what the Elizabethans wore, what they ate, what houses they lived in, and so on, Chị không sao. This is a book about Elizabethan society - people, rather than things, Chị không sao. How did the subjects of Queen Elizabeth I cope with the world in which they had been placed? What did they believe? What did they think? What did they feel? How did they react towards one another? What, indeed, did they understand by the word 'society'? What did they expect from it? What were they prepared to contribute towards it? Some were intent on preserving it as it was; others were eager to change it.For the majority, life was a daily struggle for survival against poverty, hunger, disease and injustice, Chị không sao. Patronage was the glue that held a strictly hierarchical society together, Chị không sao. Parliament represented only the interests of the landed class and the urban rich, which was why the government's greatest fear was a popular rebellion, Chị không sao. Laws were harsh, largely to deter people getting together to discuss their grievances, Chị không sao. Laws kept people in one place, and enforced attendance in parish churches.In getting to grips with this strange world - simultaneously drab and colourful, static and expansive, traditionalist and 'modern' - Wilson explores the lives of individual men and women from all levels of sixteenth-century life to give us a vivid feel for what Elizabethan society really was.Praise for the author:Masterly, Chị không sao.
