Jane Caro’s Just Flesh & Blood
Great Conversations features interviews with authors and writers, exploring books, writing and literary culture from Australia and the world.
Today’s episode features Jane Caro discussing the third in series on the life of Elizabeth I, Just Flesh & Blood.
Just Flesh & Blood sees England’s Queen Elizabeth the first at the end of her life; still the virgin queen, but surrounded by attendants who no longer quail at her authority. Elizabeth ruled between 1558 and 1603 and we pass back and forth through her reign and come to know the woman who understands that beneath the inviolability of her crown she has always been Just Flesh & Blood.
