📒The Taming Of The Queen ✍ Philippa Gregory
✏The Taming of the Queen Book Summary : By the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a novel of passion and power at the court of a medieval killer, a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII’s sixth wife Kateryn Parr. Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives—King Henry VIII—commands her to marry him. Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn’s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent. But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry’s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy—the punishment is death by fire and the king’s name is on the warrant... From the bestselling author who has illuminated all of Henry’s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer.

✏Summary of the Taming of the Queen Book Summary : Warning This is an independent addition to The Taming of the Queen, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTRO Brief Summary The Taming of the Queen tells the story of Kateryn Parr from just before she wed Henry VIII, until just after his death. The work is semi-historical, weaving facts with fiction to tell the story of one of the only two of Henry's six wives to survive him. Over the course of the story, Kateryn will grow into a very educated woman, becoming the first English queen to publish in her own name. In order to survive in the turmoil of Henry's court, she must learn to understand and participate in the constant intrigue. She must do this while trying to hold onto her own values as an enlightened woman and religious reformer. With enemies at court, a secret lover, and the constant threat of the deadly loss of Henry's favor hanging over her head; this isn't be easy. SETTING This work is set in various royal palaces throughout the English kingdom during the 1540's. All is told from Kateryn's perspective, with the location changing primarily with the seasons. This period in English history is marked by shifts in religious practices. Henry VIII broke with the Catholic Church primarily over his wish for a divorce, and would continue to institute changes over the course of his rule. The kingdom is divided between those who wish the reforms to continue, and those who wish a return to Catholicism. On the international stage, tensions are high. England still longs for the recapture of their lands lost to France. There is animosity between Spain and France. The Lutheran beliefs in Germany cause tension between them and the Catholic nations.

📒The Other Queen ✍ Philippa Gregory
✏The Other Queen Book Summary : From #1 New York Times bestselling author and “queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) Philippa Gregory—a dazzling new novel about the intriguing, romantic, and maddening Mary, Queen of Scots. Fleeing violent rebellions in Scotland, Mary looks to Queen Elizabeth of England for sanctuary. Though promised protection, Mary, perceived as a serious threat to the English crown, is soon imprisoned by her former friend as a “guest” in the house of George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury, and his indomitable wife, Bess of Hardwick. The newly married couple welcomes the condemned queen into their home, certain that serving as her hosts and jailers will bring them an advantage in the cutthroat world of the Elizabethan court. To their horror, they grow to realize that the task will bankrupt their estate and lose them what little favor they’ve managed to gain as their home becomes the epicenter of intrigue and rebellion against Queen Elizabeth. And Mary is not as hopeless as she appears, manipulating the earl and spinning her own web of treachery and deceit, as she sharpens her weapons to reclaim her Scottish throne—and to take over Queen Elizabeth’s of England.

📒The Taming Of The Shrew Annotated With Biography And Critical Essay ✍ William Shakespeare
✏The Taming of the Shrew Annotated with Biography and Critical Essay Book Summary : The Taming of the Shrew, a comedy, was first published in the Folio in 1623. It is considered to be a rewriting of an earlier play – possibly called Love’s Labour Won. The play was written to entertain - it is full of bawdy jokes, puns, and double entendres. By today’s standards it could be considered sexist, but its value must be examined within the time that it was written. The Taming of the Shrew is set in Padua, in Renaissance Italy and Shakespeare uses the device of a play within a play. During the Induction (or set-up for the plot) the character Christopher Sly, a drunken tinker, watches a play in which two stories are interwoven. The first, and main strand, involves Katharina, the daughter of Baptista, a rich gentleman of Padua, and Petruchio. The second strand is about Katharina’s sister Bianca and Lucentio. The story revolves around the courtship and marrying off the two young women. Tradition of the time and place held that the second daughter (Bianca) could not marry until her older sister, Katharina (also called Kate), was married. The dilemma for Baptista is that Bianca, attractive, sweet and gentle, had plenty of suitors while her older sister is considered something of a “shrew” – bad tempered and hard to handle – most men were not interested in wooing her. The ultimate “taming” of Katharina by Petruchio is the main plot. This annotated edition includes a biography and critical essay.
