This innovative study of one of the most visible and powerful women in European history offers an unusual focus: Queen Elizabeth I's difficulty in constructing her power in a patriarchal society. Through the examination of three crises of allegorical representation in her reign, the study traces by literary and historical means the queen's struggle to retain control over the iconography of both her physical self and her political domain.show more
