About this book

The death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603 was greeted by an outpouring of official proclamations, gossip-filled letters, tense diary entries, diplomatic dispatches, and somber sermons. English poets wrote hundreds of elegies to Elizabeth, and playwrights began bringing her onto the stage. This book uses these historical and literary sources, including a maid of honor's eyewitness account of the explosion of the Queen's corpse, to provide a detailed history of Elizabeth's final illness and death, and to show Elizabeth's subjects - peers and poets, bishops and beggars, women and men - responding to their loss by remembering and reconstructing their Queen.

Reviews

'Loomis's central point that Elizabeth's death caused a rupture in the traditional fabric of politics and culture cannot be ignored. The prose is accessible without being showy and the research is formidable.' Journal of British Studies

"Catherine Loomis's The Death of Elizabeth I: Remembering and Reconstructing the Virgin Queen is a valuable addition to the Palgrave series Queenship and Power, as well as to the growing body of scholarship on the afterlife of Elizabeth. Loomis's is a must-read book for all students of queenship, gender, and the politics of memory in the early modern period." - Huntington Library Quarterly

"This book provides a thorough and fascinating exploration of the posthumous representation of Elizabeth I in literary and material culture. Loomis is a thoughtful, interesting, meticulous scholar and this carefully constructed and highly readable book demonstrates a fine blending of literary and historical work." - Jo Carney, Chair, Department of English, The College of New Jersey
