Margaret George has cemented her reputation as a grand dame of historical fiction creating epic novels about history's most legendary characters from Henry VIII to Mary of Scotland to Helen of Troy In her latest novel ELIZABETH I she tackles perhaps the most legendary and elusive figure of all the Virgin ueen herselfElizabeth Tudor is famous as much for what she said and did as for what she did not She remains so fascinating precisely because we know so little about her personally even as her reign is replete with some of English history’s most well publicized events She was a study in contrasts and Ms George uses these contradictions to full advantage in her meticulously researched portrayal of an aging Elizabeth and her world Beginning with the first Armada there were several as the novel points out and spanning the last fifteen years of Elizabeth's eventful life the ueen comes across as a steely and astute observer of her own strengths and foibles as well as those around her even as she's drawn in the wake of her beloved Leicester's death into the magnetic ultimately tragic thrall of handsome unstable Essex Threaded throughout the narrative in which of course the ueen dominates are those who knew her such as Leicester's widow and the mother of Essex the irrepressible Lettice Knollys Lettice has battled against Elizabeth and lost; despite physical commonalties there doesn’t seem to be anything remotely alike in these two disparate women Yet as both become pawns of Essex’s erratic behavior parallels begin to emerge and it is the weaving of these which bring a touching end to the book For while Elizabeth is the ballast of the story her keen common sense majestic prerogative and deep personal sacrifices permeating the very fabric of her being Lettice is the sail that draws their shared story onto its shoals— fraught with emotion captive of her flagrant past Lettice does not recognize what looms before her until it is too late Other memorable characters such as Elizabeth’s trusted Lord Burghley and his canny son Robert; her intimate ladies; and a surprising appearance by the Bard himself as well as myriad of courtiers who made Elizabeth's palaces glitter round out this heady look at Gloriana and the flesh and blood woman underneath her immortal façade

As much as I enjoyed the descriptive writing boy can Margaret George make me experience the reality of living as an Elizabethan and the deft handling of a middle aged woman's viewpoint I struggled to finish this novel I even struggled as I read it to identify what exactly my issues were with it Was I just not in the mood for a novel that stretched than 600 pages Have I gotten so used to reading my guilty pleasure reads that I can no longer tolerate the slower pace and richer language of less formulaic fiction In all honesty I made it halfway through Elizabeth I before whatever magic glue pulls a reader through a book ran out Given that I know how it ends I had little motivation to keep reading Perhaps for the less knowledgeable reader not knowing how Elizabeth's relationship with the Earl of Essex develops is enough to maintain suspense But from a purely dramatic standpoint it is a tepid suspense even so In the end I'm perplexed about what George could have done differently to keep my attention from wandering After all the broad strokes of her narrative were already defined for her and likely well known Even her use of Elizabeth's cousin and Essex's mother Lettice added little drama and seemed designed to mitigate the limitations of a first person narrator Elizabeth Yet Lettice is really only a commentator on the action rather than an actor Elizabeth herself although a ueen who must have had a very busy life ruling her kingdom comes across as having little to do or think about save Essex and occasionally and as an afterthought the vile Spanish There is very little about the continued religious fragmentation of English society beyond Elizabeth's mention that she has done her best to hold her beloved country together George opens the novel dramatically with the Pope's blessing of papal bulls condemning her the Spanish Armada setting sail and Elizabeth anxiously awaiting the fate of England and herself After that the action dwindles and almost all of it is off stage because neither Elizabeth or Lettice are able to see or experience most of Essex's adventures and plans Essex is a cipher known only through the biased prism of each woman's eyes Both women come across as highly intelligent and mostly reasonable if biased toward one another but I was left frustrated with my inability to decide for myself about Essex's character and motivations As with most historical novels that I read I've developed a strong desire to learn the actual details of Elizabeth's life and reign Even the small amount that I've uncovered makes me yearn to read a novel of her early years the ones after her infamous mother Jane Boleyn is beheaded and she is shuffled away from court where she is a sad reminder of Henry's desperate and divisive attempt to beget a male heir I want to read about her romance with Robert Dudley her terror at being sent to the Tower her mother's last home by her eldest half sister Bloody Mary who had every reason to dislike and distrust her and her choices about her advisers the men who empowered her to rule I want to read all the drama and conflict inherent in the tumultuous early decades of her reign including her clever handling of all her suitors and her house arrest of her cousin and rival Mary ueen of Scots I think that that story would provide a nice counterbalance to George's reflective almost elegiac story

Let me preface this review by saying I'm a huge fan of Margaret George It was reading her book about Mary ueen of Scots that first kindled my interest in history Ms George is a towering literary talent and I re read The Autobiography of Henry VIII every year So why then did I fell an overwhelming sense of release when I finished 'Elizabeth I' This book was a slog to read with little or no of the Ms George magic It struck me she has lost her way as a writer and become totally absorbed by the research and historical accuracy that she has forgotten the craft of writing an enthralling story Her earlier books are outstanding in their novel approach to a great historical characters but Elizabeth is little than a literary documentary on the life of an elderly ueen I'm guessing the 'hook' if you can call it that is that we have two viewpoints one from ueen Elizabeth and one from Lettice Dudley the wife of the man linked romantically with Elizabeth but frankly this was not enough to hold my interest If I'm truthful this book only rates a 2 but I cant bring myself to give a book by Ms George that because I owe the author for the multiple hours of pleasure her other books have given me
