Bring Up the Bodies Free read ¼ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free În anul 1535 Thomas Cromwell fiul unui fierar a ajuns departe de originile lui modeste Principalul sfetnic al lui Henric al VIII lea el s a înălţat în rang odată cu Anne Boleyn a doua soţie a lui Henric de dragul căreia el a rupt o cu Roma şi şi a creat propria i biserică Însă faptele săvârşite. Mantel is such an excellent writer her prose is elouent and artistic beautiful even Few writers have such skill She uses every grammatical tool at her disposal to give her novel a strong individual sense of stylistic flair And that s just the surface level of her sentences she also uses metaphor and constant allusions to take it to another level entirely For example my favourite passage in the book He looks around at his guests All are prepared A Latin grace English would be his choice but he will suit his company Who cross themselves ostentatiously in papist style Who look at him expectant He shouts for the waiters The doors burst open Sweating men heave the platters to the table It seems the meat is fresh in fact not slaughtered yet It is just a minor breach of etiuette The company must sit and salivate The Boleyns are laid at his hand to be carved This is so much stronger that its predecessor Wolf Hall There is a stronger narrative drive and Cromwell has momentum and enthusiasm for achieving his ambitions He is also getting used to his power and his influence testing them to see how far they can reach A risky game but we all know what came of it in the end He is a very intelligent man able to root out evidence for the king when there is none to be found The Boleyn family though politically smart were vastly out matched by the cunning of Cromwell When the king wanted them out Cromwell didn t have to work too hard to achieve it Mantel has improved on her style so much here Wolf Hall was exceptionally good but it did have many flaws It was a hard book to read My main problem with it was trying to discern who the he in uestion within the writing For example Cromwell was referred to he whist talking to another he about a pair of he s they were feared were scheming against them Uncomfortable stuff though she seems to have listened to the criticism her first book received and the result is a much stronger piece of writing So what s it all aboutBoredom Boredom and anger Henry VIII s new wife Ann Boleyn has failed to give him a son such a terrible thing The entire situation is ridiculously ironic considering the one child she did give him the future Elizabeth I would become a much better monarch than he could ever be The fat fool didn t need a son But his silly little masculine ego demanded one Sure you could talk about the politics involved in having a male offspring but again just look at what Elizabeth did by herself She had no direct heir When she died she gave the throne to the King of Scotland Enough said Cromwell has a large task on his hands but he was than capable of carving up the Boleyns The only real complication was he had to do it within the limitations of the law The king can t be above his own mandates and he has to be able to justify his brutal actions even if the entire world new he was full of rubbish and would bend the system to his own ends and act all innocent about it Then blame his councillors years later for his own decisions Cromwell naturally goes to work But his day of reckoning draws very near I can t wait to read the final book in this series It s obvious how it will all end the chopping block It will be interesting to see how Mantel handles the fall of Cromwell I also wonder if she will win the man booker prize again I think she s great but I don t think she deserves it again The prize is for innovating high uality writing But her writing is no longer innovative It s a regurgitation of what she has already done not a bad thing but I don t think she should win the prize multiple times for doing the same things Still I m excited for the third bookYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

Bring Up the Bodies Free read ¼ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ată că în joc este nu doar plăcerea regelui ci şi siguranţa poporului Înţelept şi versatil se va vedea nevoit să găsească o strategie pentru a dezlega deopotrivă firele încurcate ale vieţii amoroase de la curte dar şi pentru a şi conserva propriul statut şi a se menţine în graţiile regelui. I loved this second book about Thomas Cromwell and King Henry VIII even than the first oneI started reading Bring Up the Bodies as soon as I finished Wolf Hall and I ve enjoyed this series so much I m excited for Mantel s third volume whenever it s published While Wolf Hall focused on the rise of Anne Boleyn and how she became ueen of England Bring Up the Bodies is about how the King decides to leave Anne when she can t give him a son and her subseuent downfall and execution The story of her trial and beheading has been told many times but I loved how Mantel chose to show us the scenes from Cromwell s perspective and how he helped manipulate the proceedings Cromwell even maneuvered to help the King find his next wife Jane SeymourThis second book had good pacing and flowed freely than the first one perhaps because the first one had numerous flashbacks to Cromwell s childhood and the back and forth with Cardinal Wolsey Taken together they are a masterpiece of historical fiction and I highly recommend this series Favorite uotesYou can be merry with the king you can share a joke with him But as Thomas More used to say it s like sporting with a tamed lion You tousle its mane and pull its ears but all the time you re thinking those claws those claws those clawsWhat is the nature of the border between truth and lies It is permeable and blurred because it is planted thick with rumour confabulation misunderstandings and twisted tales Truth can break the gates down truth can howl in the street unless truth is pleasing personable and easy to like she is condemned to stay whimpering at the back doorHe needs guilty men So he has found men who are guilty Though perhaps not guilty as charged Sometimes peace looks like war you cannot tell them apartErasmus says that you should praise a ruler even for ualities he does not have For the flattery gives him to think And the ualities he presently lacks he might go to work on them How many men can say as I must I am a man whose only friend is the King of England I have everything you would think And yet take Henry away and I have nothing We are not priests We don t want their sort of confession We are lawyers We want the truth little by little and only those parts of it we can useYou have always regarded women as disposable my lord and you cannot complain if in the end they think the same of you Who can understand the lives of women

Most people in the English speaking world know the history of Henry VIII from their earliest school days or from the many books films and TV series that the episode has inspired Some of us cringe when we hear of yet another fictional version yet another glittery effort to sensationalise the intrigue of the Tudor court and create even farfetched scenarios around the details of the wooing and discarding of Henry s wives How then can Hilary Mantel s series be of any interest I would argue that her treatment of history does not belong in the historical fiction genre but rather in the field of historical analysis Already with her account of the French Revolution A Place of Greater Safety 2006 she proved that she had found a new and uniue way to analyse historical events She combs all the available documentary evidence and from this wealth of detail she builds a living picture of the time and its chief players so that we feel smell touch even inhabit their world But she creates dialogue you will point out and imagines the players thoughts This is true but any historian who reads all the documents all of the letters relating to historical personages can t avoid interpreting their motivations Mantel takes that interpretation a step further through dialogue thereby making the reading of this familiar history which otherwise holds little surprise or suspense much rewarding and entertaining She succeeds because of her fine writing skills and her ability to choose the most suitable angle from which to view the events in this case Thomas Cromwell the kings secretary it is as if the reader is perched on his shoulder seeing everything he sees and privy to about half of his thoughts And we suspect that the other half of his thoughts are so secret that even he Thomas Cromwell has little access to them Mantel reveals him as neither hero nor villain but simply a man who is good at his job Being Henry s secretary is like playing chess the task is to destroy the opponent and the notion of the opposition of good and evil has no place on this board Survival is the only rule Let me give an example on the first page of Bring Up the Bodies Cromwell watches a hunting scene involving a pair of hawks Weightless they glide on the upper currents of air They pity no one They answer to no one Their lives are simple When they look down they see nothing but their prey and the borrowed plumes of the hunters they see a flittering flinching universe a universe filled with their dinner All summer has been like this a riot of dismemberment fur and feather flyingWhen we reach the last page of the book we remember the pair of hawks and we are amazed Thomas Cromwell has learned from those hawks He too is silent when he takes his prey
