Overview

History of England From the Fall of Wolsey to the Death of Elizabeth, Volume 5 (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by James Anthony Froude

Viewing history as a grand drama, Froude emphasized great personalities and disdained the scientific approach in his historical writing. This epic, twelve-volume narrative presents a vivid portrait of a tumultuous era. The fifth volume covers the years 1547 through 1553, the brief reign of Edward VI under the protectorate of his uncle, Edward Seymour.

About the Author

James Anthony Froude (1818-1894) was an English historian, biographer, and novelist.  His histories, modeled on those of his friend Thomas Carlyle, were fiercely polemical, as was his own The Nemesis of Faith, which questioned the Anglican church.  His biography of Carlyle, Life of Carlyle (1882-84), proved intensely controversial in focusing on the great man's flaws as well as his virtues.
