Description - Golden Lads by Daphne Du Maurier

This marvellously readable biography combines du Maurier's very special narrative powers with a remarkable picture of the period and of Anthony Bacon himself. A mysterious historical figure, Bacon was a contemporary of the brilliant band of gallants who clustered round the court of Elizabeth I, the 'golden lads' of the title. For some time an agent in France for Walsingham, Anthony was also closely connected with the Earl of Essex, who succeeded the Earl of Leicester as the Queen's favourite. Du Maurier did much to throw light on matters which had long puzzled historians, and as well as a consummate exercise in research, this biography is also a strange and fascinating tale.
