This book traces some of the cross-currents in Elizabethan culture, investigating ambiguities within literature which apparently praises the Queen, and the diverse meanings of descriptions of Elizabeth as a saint or goddess. It also considers both the Virgin Queen and the Virgin Mary in terms of the history of representations of gender, sexuality and power.
