Boudica: Historical Commentaries, Poetry, and Plays
Aleks Matza, author
What began as a military invasion of Britain by Julius Caesar in 55 BC reached its tragic apex in AD 61 when Queen Boudica of the Iceni led a formidable army against the might of Rome. Although defeated in her quest and all but forgotten by history, Boudica was rediscovered during the Renaissance and elevated to a legendary status that continues unabated to this day. Boudica: Historical Commentaries, Poetry, and Plays is the first anthology devoted exclusively to the story of her rebellion as seen through the eyes of thirty-two authors spanning eighteen centuries and provides an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in the story of the remarkable and terrifying woman who dared to bring the Roman Empire to its knees.
