Не про жезлы: книга Зимняя мантия

Аннотация книги Элизабет Чедвик “Зимняя мантия” внушала ужас: знатный англо-сакс намеревается присунуть гордой норманнке, да еще племяннице короля, век 11-й, где-то на фоне телепается норманнское завоевание. В общем, аннотация сулила ужас из серии “нефритовые жезлы ныряют в пещерки страсти”. Но Элизабет Чедвик такое не пишет, а пишет отличные исторические романы. Так оно и вышло.

Вильгельм Завоеватель завоевал. И занят выпизживанием недовольных и подавлением мятежей. Горе побежденным и все дела. Уолтеф Хантингдонский – знатый англо-сакс, чьему отцу принадлежала вся Нортумбрия, не принимал участие в битве при Гастингсе, так что Вильгельм к нему снисходителен. Но тут Уолтефа угораздило втрескаться в его племянницу.

Все перснажи абсолютно реальны, и автор даже ни в чем не наврала, просто нам известны сухие факты, а она расцветила их человеческими эмоциями. Могло быть так, а могло быть и по-другому. Читается, как обычно у Чедвик, очень увлекательно. Персонажи у нее вышли очень живыми и выпуклыми, так что я громко орала от возмущения. Есть еще вторая книга, про следующее поколение, но она пока не переведена. Очень интересно с познавательной точки зрения. Вот Вильгельм завоевал Англию, а дальше что? Как он ее удержал, что там происходило? Про все это есть, причем совсем не скучно. Удивительно, что все исторические романы, написанные тетками, относят к жанру любовного романа, хотя им во многих случаях и не пахнет.

I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they createwrite post headlines to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your postsblog a little livelier.
