1930. In this new drama by the author of Saturday's Children, we see Elizabeth, Queen of England, and Essex, royal favorite and popular general, in love with each other. This is an extraordinary situation, for Essex is barely thirty and Elizabeth an aging woman. Yet even more extraordinary is the character of their love. Each is passionately devoted, yet passionately opposed, to the other. The root of the trouble is power. Elizabeth delights in Essex, the courtier and lover, but is jealous of Essex, the military leader and hero. Her constant effort is to keep him quietly at Court under her own control. On the other hand, Essex, the last of a proud family, longs for action, glory and power. He despises Elizabeth's crafty, cautious statesmanship. He is for strength and decision, with himself as the hero. Finally, through the plotting of Cecil and Raleigh, Essex is sent to Ireland, juggled out of favor, and, insultingly summoned home, arrives with an army, determined to get his way by force. This situation is resolved by Mr. Anderson with an ending of extraordinary poignancy and power. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

The Great Historical Drama of Elizabeth and Essex 6. Februar 2010
Von Gary F. Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
During his lifetime Maxwell Anderson (1888-1959) was among the world's most lauded playwrights, receiving the Pulitizer Prize in 1933 for BOTH YOUR HOUSES and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for the 1935 WINTERSET and 1936 HIGH TOR. Many of his plays received successful film adaptations. Today he is perhaps known for a series of plays concerning English royalty: ELIZABETH THE QUEEN (1930), MARY OF SCOTLAND (1934), and ANNE OF THE THOUSAND DAYS (1948.) All three received major Broadway debuts, were notably filmed, and continue to receive significant revivals to present day.

Like many of Anderson's plays, ELIZABETH THE QUEEN is written in blank verse--something extremely unusual for an American play of the 20th Century--and is performed in three acts notable scene changes and a cast of more than thirty players. The original 1930 company was led by no less than Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne, a duo considered the single finest acting partnership on the American stage. Although specifically named for Elizabeth I, the play itself is evenly divided between Elizabeth and Lord Essex, and would perhaps be better named in the 1939 film version THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ELIZABETH AND ESSEX, which starred Bette Davis and Errol Flynn in a surprisingly faithful adaptation.

The play presents the aging but determinedly unwed Queen Elizabeth of England in a passionate love affair with the younger Essex, but while both clearly love each other, the relationship is complicated by their own political ambitions and the ambitions of those around them. Elizabeth is determined to hold her throne and nation and is no fan of war, which sees a drain of both manpower and treasury to no particular end; Essex, however seeks military glory and is outraged when Elizabeth refuses to give him free hand. When pride traps him into an ill-advised foray to Ireland, he soon finds himself facing off against Elizabeth herself for dominion over England, a circumstance that Elizabeth, no matter how great her love, can not and will not tolerate.

Although it is very much of its era, ELIZABETH THE QUEEN is nonetheless a great work of art; if this is old fashioned craftsmanship, it is a pity the stage is so modern. Given the technical of such a large production, you will look hard and long for a live showing, so you may have to make do with the script alone--but given Anderson's gifts, that's not a disappointment. Strongly recommended.
