The Queen's Mercy : Gender and Judgment in Representations of Elizabeth I, Hardback Book

The Queen's Mercy : Gender and Judgment in Representations of Elizabeth I Hardback

Part of the Queenship and Power series

Description

During the Elizabethan era, writers such as Shakespeare, Spenser, Sidney, Daniel, and others frequently expounded on mercy, exploring the sources and outcomes of clemency.

This fresh reading of such depictions shows that the concept of mercy was a contested one, directly shaped by tensions over the exercise of judgment by a woman on the throne.
