Description
The winner of the Whitbread Award, Somerset Maugham Award, and James Tait Black Prize for his biographies of T.S. Eliot, Oscar Wilde, and Thomas More, as well as the biographer of the city of London, Peter Ackroyd here gives us the foundation of British history, the first in an extraordinary six-volume chronicle. He guides us from the building of Stonehenge to the founding of common law and the great cathedrals. Ackroyd gives us a story of warring kings, of civil strife and foreign wars, and also a vivid sense of how England's early people lived: the homes they built, the clothes they wore, the food they ate, even the jokes they told. "His best work is in his marvelous cultural visions," wrote Harold Bloom in the New York Times Book Review, "because they convey a comprehensive and frequently dark sense of the English character and its vagaries."
