"We cannot get enough of Queen Elizabeth I. For four centuries her image---a blend of courage, vanity, power, and fathomless cunning---has exercised an almost unique fascination. Clark Hulse's lively and learned catalogue places the emphasis exactly where it belongs: on Elizabeth's lifelong fashioning of her own legend. Her rule, and, as she well understood, her survival depended upon her ability to control her representations. Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legend provides a generous sampling of these representations and allows us to gaze upon her with wonder." --- Stephen Greenblatt, Cogan University Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University
