He is the orphaned boy, the unscrubbed child who never grew up, nor had any mind to. David Teems brings you James I of England like no one else has. He brings him right to the surface with all his delightful foibles, in all his magnificence and in all his glorious lack of shine. David Teems has a colorful grasp of the late-Elizabethan, early-Jacobean era so these pages sizzle with life. It was the age of Shakespeare, of Walter Raleigh, and John Donne. MAJESTIE reads like a novel, without the burden of academy-speak. For the general reader.
