Book Description Harper, 2008. Book Condition: New. 'Driven by a hunger for the past and a fear of the future' in the words of Adam Nicolson, society in 16th and 17th century England cherished the ideal of Arcadia. From the birth of the English Renaissance in the 1520s to civil war in the 1640s, Nicolson's study explores that 'dream of perfection' through three generations of one family - the Earls of Pembroke - and their estate at Wilton, with its great house, manors, villages, parks and hunting grounds on the Wiltshire downs. Please note that this is the UK edition of 76273 Quarrel with the King. Bookseller Inventory # 267169

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: N/A. Brand New Book. A fascinating portrait from award-winning author, Adam Nicolson, of a family, a portrait, and a quarrel with a king that would tear that family apart. Et in Arcadia Ego--I too am in Arcadia Was our country once a better place? Has modernisation destroyed as much as it has improved? And can we see in an earlier Britain a way of living, an Arcadia, which now seems both ideal and remote? In the Arcadian vision, tomorrow would always be the same as yesterday. This dream became ever more alluring as the changes of an approaching modernity-the growing power of the state; the disruption of the traditional bonds of society; the breaking of communities; the marginalisation of the great families who had once balanced the power of the crown--accelerated through 16th--and 17th--century England. It was the clash of a new mercantile, individualist world with the increasingly defended, communal and chivalric ideals of the old. To tell this story from the 1520s to the 1640s, Adam Nicolson takes a single great family, the Earls of Pembroke, their wives, children, estates, tenants and allies, and follows their high and glamorous trajectory across three generations of change, nostalgia, ambition, resistance and war. It is a rich and detailed evocation of England on the hinge of medieval and modern: its rivalries and ambitions, duties and rights, longings and compulsions. The Pembrokes straddled their world, politicking at court, while on their vast estates in Wiltshire maintaining the customs of the manor and setting up the hunting parks, great houses and sophisticated gardens which constituted their vision of perfection. In this wide-ranging book Adam Nicolson explores a world in transition, moving from the intrigues, alliances and vendettas of the court to the intricate, everyday business of rural communities managing their affairs in times of stress. It was an England caught up in its first taste of modernity, yet divided over how to react to it, split between the old and the new, the moment at which the world we have lost turned into the world it has now become.
