    This book not only illuminates Sir Walter Raleigh s life, but also illuminates his times in a way that brings real benefit to the reader The author, Raleigh Trevelyan who died in 2014 , does an excellent job of making Raleigh s story compelling, maintaining focus on his protagonist while bringing in enough of the historical and political background to put Walter Raleigh in the context of his times Although if you don t like poetry, you may not like frequent quotations of Raleigh s poetry but those also illuminate the points at hand, and so are well worth paying attention to Raleigh is today mostly remembered for the story of placing his cloak in a muddy puddle so Queen Elizabeth could walk across without getting her clothes dirty But like so many in those days when merit, constant deadly risk and hard, constant work created a path to rise in the world, he was a polymath poet, diplomat, warrior, sailor, courtier, and family man Trevelyan brings all those characteristics of Raleigh, and , to life Almost all of what we see of Elizabethan times is through the lens of Elizabeth herself, or through the lens of viewing Shakespeare Both Elizabeth and Shakespeare appear here Shakespeare only a few times and on the edges , but they are not the main focus Instead, the main focus is on people less grand, and that focus makes Raleigh s story even interesting All sorts of characters are here Raleigh s half brother Humphrey G...

    La vita come un gioco di passioni Un sonetto pu sintetizzare la vita di Sir Walter Raleigh, cortigiano, navigatore e scrittore inglese Hayes, Devon, 1552 circa Londra 1618 Dopo aver combattuto in Francia per la causa ugonotta 1569 1576 , si dedic alla carriera marinaresca nel 1578, con il fratellastro sir Humphrey Gilbert, compiendo un primo viaggio a Terranova Nel 1580 si mise al servizio di Robert Dudley, conte di Leicester, e combatt in Irlanda.WHAT is our life The play of passion Our mirth The music of division Our mothers wombs the tiring houses be, Where we are dressed for life s short comedy The earth the stage Heaven the spectator is, Who sits and views whosoe er doth act amiss The graves which hide us from the scorching sun Are like drawn curtains when the play is done Thus playing post we to our latest rest, And then we die in earnest, not in jest Che cos la nostra vita Un gioco di passioni,La nostra gioia la musica della divisione.Il grembo materno sono le nostre noiose caseDove ci vestiamo per questa breve commedia.Il cielo ci giudice spietato e spettatore,Che siede e giudica chi sbaglia.Le nostre tombe che ci nascondono al sole che tramontaSono come un sipario tirato...

    Exhaustive biography of the name sake of Raleigh, North Carolina properly pronounced Rawley , although Raleigh himself spelled it many different ways , a most interesting and modern man in a violent and backward time.
