Overview

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 fourth volume begins with a discussion of Scotland and Ireland and their rivalries with one another and with England. It closes with an analysis of the life and reign of Henry the Eighth.

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.
