    PDF Eleanor of Auitaine ePUB Ú Eleanor of Epub / ´ posthd.pro eleanor download, auitaine book, Eleanor of book, Eleanor of Auitaine MOBIDespite the title and the author's stated ambition to write a balanced account of Eleanor neither on the side lines nor a romantic heroine this book is best read as a friendly accessible history of the early Plantagenets Something to read if you've enjoyed The Lion in Winter and fancy knowing a bit about that uarrelsome competitive family Sadly Eleanor remains definitely on the sidelines Weir doesn't discuss the source material so as a reader you can't know if this was her choice or just inevitable given the material she had to work with Weir could have spent time discussing in general terms what the life of a great Duchess and ueen would have been like but she prefers to concentrate on the political or family view spoiler the two are interchangeable in this case hide spoiler

    PDF Eleanor of Auitaine ePUB Ú Eleanor of Epub / ´ posthd.pro eleanor download, auitaine book, Eleanor of book, Eleanor of Auitaine MOBIAlison Weir spends a lot of time in this book discusses common legends and misconceptions surrounding Eleanor which was interesting for me because I hadn't heard any of them before I really wasn't that familiar with Eleanor of Auitaine before reading this mostly I just knew that she went on crusade once was Richard the Lionheart's mother and was played by Katherine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter From these three bits of information we can at least deduce that she was kind of a badassHaving finished this account of her life I have to admit that I now know a lot about everyone else in Eleanor's life than I do about Eleanor herself Weir does her best but the fact is there just isn't that much concrete information about Eleanor aside from a few letters which were recorded by her clerk who may have actually composed the le

    PDF Eleanor of Auitaine ePUB Ú Eleanor of Epub / ´ posthd.pro eleanor download, auitaine book, Eleanor of book, Eleanor of Auitaine MOBII've had a life long and abiding interest in Eleanor of Auitaine ever since I read a biography of her when I was 10 years old I never realized though how little I actually knew about the Plantagenetsor how wrong what little I knew wasuntil I read Weir's bookMy only complaint about this book has less to do with Weir's impeccable scholarship and gift for narrative than it does with the scant record left behind by women even notable women like Eleanor As an aside it seems like a vast understatement to call her notable; I feel I need a much stronger word but it is late and I can't think of a good word now There are times in the book when I grew impatient reading about the antics of John and Richard and wanted to know WHERE'S ELEANOR? But as I said that is a result of the scant evidence left behind in the historical record when it comes to

    PDF Eleanor of Auitaine ePUB Ú Eleanor of Epub / ´ posthd.pro eleanor download, auitaine book, Eleanor of book, Eleanor of Auitaine MOBIAlison Weir's biography of Eleanor of Auitaine is thorough and well researched from birth to death There's a lot of dates and names and Weir's style doesn't really make that kind of detail absorbing but there's plenty to interest a patient reader My chief criticism is that Weir presents this as a complete portrait of Eleanor commenting that previous accounts of her life rely too heavily on the actions of her husbands and sons but Weir herself falls into that same pitfall Whole chapters go by in which Henry or Richard or John are the focusStill worth the time I invested I think Eleanor was a fascinating woman and a great ueen amd Weir definitely shows the reader that

    PDF Eleanor of Auitaine ePUB Ú Eleanor of Epub / ´ posthd.pro eleanor download, auitaine book, Eleanor of book, Eleanor of Auitaine MOBII do think it is a good book and good history But it is not a biography of Eleanor There have been numerous comments that the problems with the book revolve around there just not being enough direct material available to do a biography and they're entirely justified Large sections of the book go by with notes of 'Eleanor does not appear in any of the chronicles of this period'Worse from a biography point of view there are few real conclusions or statements of what Eleanor was like I think the book would have benefited from being a bit opinionated and the book stays too distant from the subjectAll that said even when Eleanor is not present she haunts the pa
