This is the first edition ever of the Queen's correspondence in Italian. These letters cast a new light on her talents as a linguist and provide interesting details as to her political agenda, and on the cultural milieu of her court. This book provides a fresh analysis of the surviving evidence concerning Elizabeth's learning and use of Italian, and of the activity of the members of her 'Foreign Office.'

Rezensionen
"This edition of Elizabeth I's Italian letters collects 30 carefully edited and translated texts written by, or issued in the name of, the queen, sent to domestic and international recipients. ... Elizabeth I's Italian letters is a fitting addition to Palgrave's Queenship and Power series and signifies an important contribution to early modern and Elizabethan scholarship." (Mel Evans, The Review of English Studies, June, 2018) 

"Bajetta has produced a volume that must surely become the gold standard when compiling scholarly editions of letters-whether in translation, or in their original language. Not only is the book a stunning example of how foreign correspondence should be presented in English, but the book is also an invaluable contribution to the scholarship on the foreign relations of Elizabeth I, and Elizabethan England generally." (Aidan Norrie, Royal Studies Journal, Vol. 5 (1), 2018)
