Description
Sir Francis Drake was a pirate, explorer, and Protestant zealot, princely in his bearing and heroic if sometimes foolhardy in his enterprise. He is the archetypal Elizabethan sea-dog, and in this book Stephen Coote—also the biographer of Charles II, W.B. Yeats, John Keats, and Samuel Pepys—focuses on the episodes that made Drake's reputation. Through raids on Spanish Caribbean ports during Drake's privateering days, the extraordinary feat of the circumnavigation aboard the Golden Hind, and Drake's role in the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, Coote explores the nature of that reputation, and how it also, for better or worse, came to epitomize England's sense of nationhood.
