Kenilworth: A Romance
A woman of great beauty and integrity, Amy is married to the Earl of Leicester, one of the Queen’s favourites, who must keep Amy confined to Cumnor-Place and the marriage a secret, or incur royal displeasure. Rich in character, melodrama and romance, 'Kenilworth' (1821) is rivalled only by the great Elizabethan dramas.
