Summary The Virgins Lover: 3 Review ✓ The Virgins Lover: 3 102 Review ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Philippa Gregory But the country is divided the restoration of the Protestant faith ignites opposition from the church and beyond and court remains a treacherous placeMany believe that Elizabeth must marry if she is to survive For Robert Dudley Elizabeth s ascension is a glorious new dawn and he uickly positions himself. I really enjoyed TVL While it s not as good as some of Gregory s other novels and certainly no historically accurate it s a very interesting portrait of the early days of Elizabeth s reign and of the monumental problems faced by the country I appreciated seeing the situation from the point of view of the common people not just the courtiers and it was a wonderful analysis of a woefully mismatched marriage I like that Amy Robsart isn t a martyr without any faults she s a childish overly dependent sometimes really annoying person who is willfully blind to her husband s true character and ambitions and she and Robert Dudley are completely and utterly unsuited for each other however much they may love one anotherButThis isn t a criticism of TVL so much as all of Gregory s books what IS Gregory s beef with ueen Elizabeth I Okay so the real ueen wasn t the saint popular media both then and now make her out to be she was devious grasping petulant bad tempered and she also committed some atrocities that get swept under the rug It s good that Gregory shows her faults in this fictional portrait But and here s the thing a lot of Gregory s other characters behave just as badly and they are not judged nearly as harshly for itTake Elizabeth s relationship with Dudley for instance When Elizabeth has an affair with him and becomes so dependent she feels like she can t function without him two circumstances that I find highly unlikely by the way Gregory portrays her as a slutty little ditz who s being ruled by men But when ueen Mary Tudor becomes so dependent on her husband who cares nothing for her that she s willing to finance his monumentally stupid war and has a complete breakdown when he leaves her causing her to utterly neglect her royal duties while her country is sliding into chaos then she s a martyr to love and a traumatic past who deserves all our sympathy Similarly when Elizabeth screws around with other women s husbands she s a promiscuous unscrupulous seductress who openly rejoices over other women s pain But when say the White Princess screws around with someone else s husband incidentally her own biological UNCLE while the wife is DYING then she s a blossoming young innocent caught up in the nasty machinations of others When Elizabeth is dismissive of other women she s a vile traitor to her gender when Elizabeth Woodville does the same thing she s just being her glamorous self Even in the latest novel SPOILER when Elizabeth lies through her teeth about how great the royal portrait is she s corrupted beyond hope even as the heroine Kateryn Parr is also lying Even Margaret Beaufort s murder of the Princes in the Tower is somehow not as bad as Elizabeth flirting with her courtiers and taking advice from Cecil a man who actually has her interests at heartGregory writes about many interesting powerful women none of them are saints But somehow ueen Elizabeth I is the only sinner
