Críticas

I tend not to re-read books. But this is one I read multiple times in HS and college. Sadly, I don't have a copy to re-read today. Yarbro does a masterful job juxtaposing the real-world life of the poet Ariosto against the imaginary, alt-history world of his imagination, the subject of his epic poems.

A little slower than her usual entries but still very enjoyable. Count Ragoczy is on a mission from Czar Nicholas to try to slow down the arms race before WWI by acting as an emissary to King George and the Kaiser. It brings him the enmity of con Wolgast, an unscrupulous arms manufacturer. A nice look at the upper crust of this time.
