Bruce BoucherCaroline Murphy has recreated Felice della Rovere's life with agility and tact. She successfully fleshes out the customs and historical background of her Machiavellian princess, even though there is not enough foreground to evoke a strong sense of the woman herself. Felice's words rarely convey the drama of her life: she wrote no poetry; all her letters dealt with business; and she did not commission any major work of art. Still, Felice's achievements were remarkable, given her birth and sex. But to understand her personality one must read between the lines.
