characters The Lady in the Tower The Fall of Anne Boleyn The Lady in the Tower The Fall of Anne Boleyn Free read à 104 Alison Weir ê 4 Free read On 2 May 1536 in an act unprecedented in English history Anne Boleyn Henry VIII's second wife was imprisoned in the Tower of London On 15 May she was tried and found guilty of high treason and executed just four days later Mystery surrounds the circumstances leading up to her. It seems to me that a century has passed since the last book i reviewed here on GR after weeks of nightmare where I could no longer pick up anything to read it seems a paradox being in lockdown here in Milano and not being able to pass the time reading I am happy now to review this excellent bookI was surprised to appreciate the second volume of the ueens of Henry VIII so moving and wonderful was the figure of Catherine of Aragon I never thought I d get to the end of this second volume and feel pity and compassion for this particular woman Anne BoleynI am amazed here how Alison Weir has always managed to remain firmly attached to the historical truth all the events the historical characters the places but above all the epistolary exchanges here often reported are not the result of a structure romanticized and invented but historical and truthful canvas of what happened in 1530Anne Boleyn is a woman devoured by the thirst for power she will accept the courtship of Henry not for an answer of love and affection to him but for the idea of being her ueen sharing the power over everything Her daily progress was thus paved with conjectures intrigues and calculations of interest but unfortunately always accompanied by envy anxiety and real states of neurosisThe sweetest part is surely the youth of Anne Boleyn when she was sent to the court of Margaret of Habsurg and then to the ueen Claudia of France spouse of Frances I Her first steps as an innocent and simple girl inside a court of ladies at the service of their majesty to see her being able to study and learn the humanistic and new disciplines absolutely banished to the English court to see her standing against the Amor cortese costume at court In short her childhood and early youth looked like a little Saint and would never leave any intuition of what she would becomeIt really leaves you sad and amazed to scroll through the pages in all those chapters where the only feeling ever present in the heart of Boleyn is the visceral hatred turned into pure evil towards Catherine of Aragonthe vulgar and hateful terms reported in some letters saved in the Vatican nowadays they leave no room except for this feeling of vengeance and wickedness that she felt for the ueen who did not want to bow to her husband s will in considering the marriage invalidA woman Anne drawn excessive in ways evil and calculating this comes out when she will finally succeed in crowning the union so much wanted also by his lover and spouse Henry VIII But at what price A ueen hated by all first of all by the people who considered her a true harlot by most of the court because she was held responsible for the sin of adultery during the marriage between Henry and Catherine Hated because it fully supported the persecution of religious orders and the possible confiscation of Church property urging at all costs Henry to choices dictated solely by resentment and fierce hatred to those who stood before her with different opinions But the thing that scares me is that she always wanted to persecute Mary the first daughter of Henry to make Catherine suffers and devastates What kind of heart can such a woman have Why did I write at the beginning of the review that this book is ultimately moving and heartbreaking Because it would seem that at the time of her death Anne Boleyn asked for mercy and forgiveness for the evil committed she also did so for Maria but she could not take the next small step in understanding that the greater pain and laceration was commited by her towards Catherine never understood that becoming a second spouse would have led to an institute of marriage so labile and meaningless that it would have been wiped out her and her power at the first of Henry s boredom and it happened just soIn fact what is testified by history the dismantling the Sacrament of Marriage by Henry has opened up to consider the sacramental union always serving enslaved and crushed by the mood and interests of the moment labile and modifiable for every new infatuation and the six women had in Marriage testify only thisMi sembra essere passato un secolo dall ultimo libro recensito ui su GR dopo settimane da incubo dove non sono piu riuscita a prendere in mano nulla da leggere si sembra un paradosso essere in lockdown e non riuscire a far passare il tempo con la lettura mi butto completamente a recensire uesto ottimo libroMi sono ritrovata sorpresa nell apprezzare il secondo volume delle Regine di Enrico VIII cos commovente e meravigliosa era stata la figura di Caterina d Aragona mai avrei pensato di arrivare alla fine di uesto secondo volume e provare piet e compassione per uesta donna cos particolare Anna BolenaSono stupita anche ui come Alison Weir sia sempre riuscita a rimanere fermamente attaccata alla verit storica tutti gli avvenimenti i personaggi storici i luoghi ma soprattutto gli scambi epistolari ui spesso riportati non sono frutto di una struttura romanzata e inventata ma canovaccio storico e veritiero di ci che avvenne nel 1530Anna Bolena una donna divorata dalla sete di potere accetter il corteggiamento di Enrico non per una risposta di affetto da parte sua ma per l idea di essere la sua Regina condividendo il potere su tutto Il suo procedere del uotidiano era uindi lastricato di congetture intrighi e calcoli d interesse ma purtroppo sempre accompagnati da invidia ansia e stati veri e propri di nevrosiLa parte piu tenera sicuramente la giovinezza di Anna Bolena uando venne mandata in Olanda e in francia alla corte di Margherita d Asburgo e poi dalla Regina Claudia di Francia consorte di francesco I I suoi primi passi da ragazzina innocente e semplice con una corte di dame al servizio delle loro maest vederla poter studiare e apprendere l Umanistica e nuove discipline assolutamente bandite alla corte Inglese vederla ferma contro il costume dell Amor cortese a corteInsomma la sua infanzia e prima giovinezza sembrava uello di una piccola Santa e mai avrebbe lasciato ogni intuizione di ci che sarebbe poi diventataLascia veramente affranti e basiti scorrere le pagine in tutti uei capitoli dove l unico sentimento sempre presente nel cuore della Bolena l odio viscerale trasformatosi in malvagit pura nei confronti di Caterina d Aragonai termini volgari e odiosi riportati in alcune lettere custodite in Vaticano non lasciano spazio se non a uesto sentimento di vendetta e cattiveria che provava per la Regina che non voleva piegarsi alla volont del marito nel ritenere non valido il matrimonioUna donna sguaiata eccessiva nei modi malvagia e calcolatrice uesto ne viene fuori uando riuscir alla fine a coronare l unione tanto voluta anche dal suo amante e consorte Enrico VIII ma a che prezzo una Regina odiata da tutti in primis dal popolo che la riteneva una vera meretrice da maggior parte della corte perch ritenuta responsabile del peccato di adulterio durante il matrimonio tra Enrico e Caterina Odiata perch sostenne sino in fondo la persecuzione nei confronti degli ordini religiosi e la possibile confisca dei beni della Chiesa spingendo a tutti i costi Enrico a scelte dettate unicamente dal risentimento e dall odio feroce a chi si ponesse di fronte a lei con opinioni differenti Ma la cosa che lascia sgomenti l aver voluto sempre perseguitare Maria per far soffrire e devastare Caterina Che cuore pu mai avere una donna del genere Perch all inizio della recensione ho scritto che uesto libro alla fin fine commovente e straziante Perch parrebbe che nell ora della sua morte Anna Bolena chiese piet e perdono per il male commesso lo fece anche nei confronti di Maria ma non riusc a fare il mini passettino successivo nel capire che il dolore e lacerazione piu grande lo commise nei confronti di Caterina non cap mai che diventare una seconda consorte avrebbe portato ad un istituto del matrimonio cos labile e privo di significato che sarebbe stato spazzato via lei e il suo potere alla prima noia di Enrico ed avvenne proprio cosiInfatti ci che ci testimonia la storia l aver smontato il sacramento del Matrimonio da parte di Enrico ha aperto nel considerare l unione sacramentale sempre serva schiava e schiacciata dall u e interessi del momento labile e modificabile per ogni nuovo infatuamento e le sei donne avute in Matrimonio testimoniano solo uesto
