About the Author

Felix Pryor is a writer, art historian, and manuscripts expert. He has written on Shakespeare and is editor of The Faber Book of Letters (1988).


"This collection of letters from Elizabeth to her father, King Henry Vlll, and Mary, Queen of Scots, among others, forms a chronicle of her teenage years, into and throughout her reign. While the language is often flowery by our standards -- "me thinks I am more beholdinge to the hindar part of my hed" -- the letters reveal an introspective side to the woman who was forced to become what she dreaded: Queen. Particularly striking is the comparison of her signatures, growing in physical size as she strides further and further into monarchy."--"Toronto Globe & Mail
