‾ Read Hardcover ↿ Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart  ⁚ E-Pub Author John Guy ₃ ‾ Read Hardcover ↿ Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart ⁚ E-Pub Author John Guy ₃ The story of Mary Stuart has been told in many contexts most recently in Elizabeth and Mary , but nowhere has she been defended rigorously than in this new study Guy, a fellow at Cambridge University and BBC consultant, describes Mary s formative years in France, but the heart of the book is her short reign in Scotland Negotiations with Elizabeth Tudor over the succession in England and the shadow of Mary s final fate dominate the narrative, but while Guy effectively establishes that Elizabeth s chief minister William Cecil was Mary s true English enemy, what is most shocking is how suppliant he shows Mary to have been to Elizabeth The most dramatic moments, however, are supplied by the Scottish nobles, who shifted alliances around her and colluded in kidnappings and assassinations Though not the first to challenge Mary s femme fatale image, Guy does not even deign to discuss the accusation that she was romantically involved with her Italian secretary Rizzio and convincingly absolves her of involvement in the death of her second husband He re examines her actions and choices and offers a lively textual analysis of letters usually used as evidence against her Yet he does not conclusively argue that she ruled from the head, and, in the end, the question of whether Mary Stuart ruled from her head or her heart appears beside the point Guy s detailed account of the familial, political and religious machinations of the forces swirling around the queen suggests that it was not flaws in Mary s character but the entire constellation of circumstances that doomed her rule in Scotland and led to her execution 16 pages of bw photos Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Few royal figures from the pages of European history continue to fascinate historian and lay reader alike as much as Mary Stuart, the ill fated queen of Scots, who has come down to us dressed in the raiment of legend British historian Guy delves deeply into previously little mined archival evidence, and, aided by a felicitous style no drifting into dry lecturing , he arrives not at a whitewash but at a restoration of Queen Mary with respect to the truth about the quality of her character and her performance as monarch The easiest and quickest way to judge Mary Stuart has always been to compare her to her cousin and fellow queen sovereign Elizabeth Tudor Guy, on the other hand, takes Mary on her own terms, seeing as stereotype the long perpetuated concept that Mary ruled from her heart while Elizabeth ruled from the head Mary s is a complicated story, as were Scottish politics at the time, but Guy explicates the complications including Mary s marriages, her struggle with the Scottish lords, the murder of her second husband, and her long incarceration and eventual execution in England with both authority and clear illumination A major biography Brad Hooper Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Mary, Queen of Scots
