Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: First-ever collection of all of Anne Boleyn s letters and the contemporary writings about her. A very useful compilation of source material on Anne Boleyn a well-produced book ALISON WEIR Huge interest in the wives of Henry VIII, and in Anne Boleyn in particular. Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII, caused comment wherever she went. Through the chronicles, letters and dispatches written by both Anne and her contemporaries, it is possible to see her life and thoughts as she struggled to become queen of England, ultimately ending her life on the scaffold. Only through the original sources is it truly possible to evaluate the real Anne.George Wyatt s Life of Queen Anne provided the first detailed account of the queen, based on the testimony of those that knew her. The poems of Anne s supposed lover, Thomas Wyatt, as well as accounts such as Cavendish s Life of Wolsey also give details of her life, as do the hostile dispatches of the Imperial Ambassador, Eustace Chapuys and the later works of the slanderous Nicholas Slander and Nicholas Harpsfield. Henry VIII s love letters and many of Anne s own letters survive, providing an insight into the love affair that changed England forever. The reports on Anne s conduct in the Tower of London show the queen s shock and despair when she realized that she was to die. Collected together for the first time, these and other sources make it possible to view the real Anne Boleyn through her own words and those of her contemporaries.REVIEWS I've read several books on Anne Boleyn. This is the first book I've read that in its entirety is an account of her life through letters, memoirs, poems. Most of the documents are written by historical contemporaries" of her period, those who knew her personally and many who hated her with vengeance. Reading what eyewitnesses stated about her, even if some of them were a bit slanted to one side; reading what Anne wrote in letters to Henry or a friend; I feel this book breathed a life into Anne that I'd not felt before in other accounts of her life. I feel at ease with a book that shows me the "real" Anne, not a fictional account, but her very presence." Impressions In Ink 'A valuable resource for historians and general readers alike. (an) enlightening collection.BBC History Magazine '". Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_1445612887
