Lord Geoffrey's Fancy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lord Geoffrey's Fancy free pdf Lord Geoffrey's Fancy is a beautifully detailed study of the world of the thirteenth century -- a world of knights and crusaders, of courtly love and chilvalry. Closely following historical fact, Duggan portrays the fate and fortunes of one Sir Geoffrey de Bruyere, 'the best knight in all Romanie'. He traces his story through hunts and brightly coloured jousting tournaments to gallant battles, fighting for God and for justice against the Infidel Turk. 'One of the best historical novelists of this century' Times Literary Supplement 'What gives this novel its subtly satisfying flavour is the grasp of medieval philosophy it displays' Daily Telegraph

About Alfred Duggan

Historian, archaeologist and novelist Alfred Duggan wrote historical fiction and non-fiction about a wide range of subjects, in places and times as diverse as Julius Caesar's Rome and the Medieval Europe of Thomas Becket. Although he was born in Argentina, Duggan grew up in England, and was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. After Oxford, he travelled extensively through Greece and Turkey, visiting almost all the sites later mentioned in his books. In 1935 helped excavate Constantine's palace in Istanbul. Duggan came to writing fiction quite late in his life: his first novel about the First Crusade, Knight in Armour, was published in 1950, after which he published at least a book every year until his death in 1964. His fictional works were bestselling page-turners, but thoroughly grounded in meticulous research informed by Duggan's experience as an archaeologist and historian. Duggan has been favourably compared to Bernard Cornwell as well as being praised in his own right as 'an extremely gifted writer who can move into an unknown period and give it life and immediacy.' (New York Times).
