Description
This illuminating history examines the life and many legends of the 16th century Queen who was executed by her husband, King Henry VIII.

Part biography, part cultural history, The Creation of Anne Boleyn is a fascinating reconstruction of Anne's life and a revealing look at her afterlife in the popular imagination. Why is her story so compelling? Why has she inspired such extreme reactions? Was she the flaxen-haired martyr of Romantic paintings or the raven-haired seductress of twenty-first-century portrayals? (Answer: neither.) But the most provocative question of all concerns Anne's death: How could Henry order the execution of a once beloved wife?

Drawing on scholarship and critical analysis, Bordo probes the complexities of one of history's most infamous relationships. She then demonstrates how generations of polemicists, biographers, novelists, and filmmakers have imagined and re-imagined Anne: whore, martyr, cautionary tale, proto "mean girl," feminist icon, and everything in between. In The Creation of Anne Boleyn, Bordo steps off the well-trodden paths of Tudoriana to tease out the human being behind the competing mythologies, paintings, and on-screen portrayals.
