Graven With Diamonds : The Many Lives of Thomas Wyatt: Poet, Lover, Statesman, and Spy in the Court of Henry VIII
"A fluid, poised, quick-witted dance through the poetic and political career of one of the most elusive, glittering figures of Tudor England." -- Hilary Mantel, author of Wolf Hall " Masterly… the best work of history this year" -- AN Wilson, Evening Standard "A brilliant example of literary rehabilitation... A thrilling book that manages to be both scholarly and wonderfully readable" -- Kathryn Hughes, Mail on Sunday "Beautifully intelligent and lucid" -- John Lanchester, New Statesman "Glitteringly brilliant... Everyone who cares anything for poetry should read this vivid, dynamic and exhilarating account of how and why words matter." -- Times Literary Supplement "Both sparkling and scholarly. Nothing I've ever read about the court of Henry VIII has made it so vivid… A gem." -- Cressida Connolly, Spectator " Sharp, dangerous and exhilarating" -- Geordie Greig, Evening Standard "Poised, lucid, often arresting and frequently witty" -- John Guy, Sunday Times "Really exciting: a literary thriller... I'm already dreading finishing it." -- Rachel Cooke, Independent
