The Private Letters of Countess Erzsebet Bathory
Magis Tan's review
Apr 20, 2011
I really loved this book. I am always looking for new information on Elizabeth Bathory, and this book had dozens of new letters I've never seen. They paint a fascinating picture of the trials and tribulations this woman went through. Her homes and castles were stolen, her people killed, farms burned, land invaded, all the while dealing with the treacherous politics of king, emperor, Turks, revolutionaries and even relatives. The translations are done well and really capture the feel of the period and the voice of this noblewoman. I really felt like I was back in the 1600s. Really interesting look in time, with lots of new information on what life was like then.
