Reviews

  • "With The Elizabethans, AN Wilson returns to his winning formula."

    Evening Standard
  • "The England Wilson describes is one of perennial fascination to readers of both history and fiction ... for those who are content to revisit some well-known scenes, and encounter some surprises, there is much to treasure."

    Financial Times
  • "There is no doubt about the overall power of the pictures he draws. Particularly when he is considering the great literary figures - Sidney, Spencer, Marlowe, Shakespeare - there is genuine excitement and empathy."

    Literary Review
  • "Hot on the heels of The Victorians ... His witty conversational style and eye for period detail bring the brilliance and spectacle of the Elizabethan age vividly to life."

    Sunday Express
