Frances Harris. New York: Oxford University Press. ISBN Frances Harris successfully revises our understanding of the relationship, conducted largely at court, between the young court beauty Margaret Blagge and John Evelyn, the thinker and civil servant, who was married and thirty years her senior. Their friendship began in and ripened until her death six years later. In the s, W. Hiscock argued that Evelyn, in his role as her spiritual adviser, used his power over her to seduce her and keep her from marrying. In this view Evelyn is exposed as a religious hypocrite and Blagge a pious neurotic.

But Harris combs the Evelyn Papers at the British Library, where she is a curator of manuscripts, to paint a fuller, very different picture. May be very minimal identifying marks on the inside cover. Very minimal wear and tear. See all condition definitions - opens in a new window or tab.

Her approach is delicate and generous andthere is hardly a page in the book that does not offer insight into the life ofthe seventeenth century, or a vista to be explored further'Claire Tomalin, The Guardian, 'With a delicate but sure hand Harris has accomplished the highest andmost difficult task of the historian: she has allowed us to understand the paston its own terms.

Her piercing, quietly stylish work is without question one ofthe best histories of the year'Atlantic Monthly, 'Review from previous edition This exquisite new book unravels the truthof a platonic but passionate love affair at the court of Charles II, between amaid of honour and a middle-aged married scholar. Transformations of Love is a triumph of research and imagination, superbly researched and beautifully written.

In its compelling recreation of one friendship, it offers a new way for historians to understand how early modern men and women related, and their dreams of a world beyond hierarchy, contract and obligation. She sets it against the wider Restoration landscape, evinced with immaculate scholarship and the lightest of touches.

Her book is a masterfulachievement She throws light not only on the inner lives of her subjects but also on the religion, court culture, philosophy, concepts of femininity, sexual mores, and--not least--horticulture of seventeenth-century England. With a delicate but sure hand Harris has accomplished the highest and most difficult task of the historian: she has allowed us to understand the past on its own terms. Her piercing, quietly stylish work is without question one of the best histories of the year.

This work of impeccable scholarship excavates the sensibility of the times with such discretion and delicacy that we are able to understand and enter into the relationship without scepticism Transformations of Love is also a fantastically good read.
