Introduction

Question 1-How far do you agree with Lady Anne's biographer that she was "A remarkable person, almost a queen in her domains, who made a tremendous on her people" from a study of sites and other evidence. On the 30th January 1590, Lady Anne Clifford was born into a world, where Queen Elizabeth I was still on the throne at the age of 42, and the country was as stable as could be expected in the 16th century. It is very easy to give a favourable account of Lady Anne Clifford as her biographer has done. In this essay I will discuss whether the same applies following my own personal investigations and my study of Anne's reign and land. We must consider whether Lady Anne was "A remarkable person". We have to bear in mind that Lady Anne was an extremely successful person in her time .She restored all of her castles and was very successful woman in a mans world. ...read more.

Most of all she demanded the up most respect from her people and if they dared defy her she would do everything in her power to condemn them. But unlike a queen she was in touch with her people and did come into physical contact with them, an example of this was when parliament was overthrown and Charles II was restored in 1660, it was said that she joined in the celebrations with the people of Appleby. Also Lady Anne owned a lot of Castles, and really, at that time most royals owned great estates or were building stately homes, not touring old damp Castles, as there was no real need for them as England was no longer under attack from any invading for In the last part of the quote we must look at whether Lady Anne did make a "Tremendous impact on her people." Many say she did. Lady Anne created almshouses for widows, and provided money for the poor. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think that perhaps Bouch was brought up in the area where Anne was famous, and grew up, listening to stories of her, so obviously he thought of her as a great person who had helped his region in the past. He also could have been commissioned or helped by a member of her family, so naturally he would be swayed by them, so he could gain their approval and get paid. He may even be related in some way or have connections to the Clifford domains. He could also be biased by no fault of his own, due to the lack of information when this quote was written in the 19th century. In conclusion, Lady Anne Clifford was a remarkable woman, but really in comparison to other men from history, she really wasn't as successful as them. I feel she was only picked out because of her sex, but this doesn't stop her from being a brilliant role model, or from taking away any of her amazing achievements. .

  1. Macbeth-Character Study

    This again shows us how Macbeth is easily manipulated, even though there is a slight possibility that he may be following his own ambitions, but I would say that he would not have committed her murder if the witches or lady Macbeth didn't influence him.

  2. Lady Macbeth:character study.

    She seems like a woman who after finding out about something that she might be able to have, tries as hard as she can to get that thing even though it is almost impossible to get. We next see her in act 1 scene 2; this is the scene after the one where Macbeth kills the King.
