Mary Stuart
Mary Stuart | Stefan Zweig
2 posts | 5 read | 1 to read
Mary Stuart Queen of Scots, Queen of France and a claimant to the throne of England, was condemned for treason and executed at the age of forty-four. A potential threat to the stability of the English Crown, she was held captive for twenty years by her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England. From the moment of her birth until her execution, her life was spent embroiled in the power struggles that shook the foundations of Renaissance Europe. It has taken the free spirit and the immense talent of Stefan Zweig to justly reconstruct events in the life of a woman who was so cruelly united with destiny. With all the rigor of a scientist and the passion of an artist, Zweig has skillfully reconstituted the character of Mary Stuart and the turmoil that was her fate.

Quite a read it was! I do like the novel itself, though Mary Stuart as a character and historical figure is all contradictory. She evokes the whole range of emotions - one moment you are angry and annoyed by her follies, the next you are already full of compassion to her miserable luck 💔 This is a breathtaking story with conspiracies, betrayals and a bit too much of 'excessive passion'.

Slajaunie Her story is an interesting one if frustrating. 4mo

When I saw this, I did a happy dance! I adore Stefan Zweig and Maria Stuart is at the top of my to read list. This is a beautiful bound copy from 1958.
