Reviews of Ruled Britannia (2002)
Review by Cannibalizer (2003-03-29)
This is definitively one of the best books I've ever read. Its historically accurate (me being an Archaeolgy and History major surrounded by English majors) to a tee, including two of the most famous writers ever to live - William Shakespeare and Lope De Vega, the latter trigerring what I consider a life long affair with his work, in addition to dozens of historic persona.
I would heavy recommend it to anyone and everyone, especially high school students (because you know how hard it is to get them to read the classics) as this is a low rent, undemanding starting point to an obsession with wonderful literature. An absolute pleasure and privilege.
