I am in the minority in this view and would never suggest that others with an interest in Cromwell not read this book Just I feel that ater books see Gods Fury do a New York Is English, Chattanooga Is Creek. (Richard Jackson Books (Atheneum Hardcover)) lot better England is not just theand of kings and ueens for a brief period it was a Commonwealth under a Lord Protector Even fascinating than that semi republican interlude is the culture that gave rise to it a ferment of social religious and scientific upheaval that killed off what remained of the Middle Ages and gave rise to modernity Under Cromwell ability gained precedence over nobility He sought out men for places not places for men Christopher Hill s picture of Cromwell warts and all but #mainly sympathetic and his time is at once foreign and familiar the # sympathetic and his time is at once foreign and familiar the fervour that motivated English politics in the 17th century is now best observed elsewhere Some uotes ring true through the ages though If there be any one that makes many poor to make a few rich that suits not a Commonwealth Cromwell in a Guiding Readers and Writers, Grades 3-6: Teaching Comprehension, Genre, and Content Literacy letter to the Speaker of Parliament beforeeaving for Ireland I beseech you in the bowels of Christ think it possible that you may be mistaken Cromwell to the Scottish Kirk It was your pride that begat this expression clergy and The Stray Bullet laity Ed and it is for filthyucre s sake that you keep it up that by making the people believe they are not so holy as yourselves they might for their penny purchase some sanctity from you and that you might bridle saddle and ride them at your pleasure Cromwell to the Irish clergyEdmund Calamy offering advice to Cromwell about to dissolve the Rump Parliament Tis against the will of the nation there will be nine in ten against you Cromwell in reply But what if I should disarm the nine and put a sword in the tenth man s hand Would not that do the business The tyranny of princes could never be grievous but by the tameness and stupidity of the people London merchant George Cony to his friend Cromwell When shall we have men of a universal spirit Every one desires to have iberty but none will give it Cromwell A man never rises so high as when he does not know where he is going Cromwell to the French Ambassador in 1647 These very persons would shout as much if you and I were going to persons would shout as much if you and I were going to hanged Cromwell to John Lambert when cheered by the inhabitants of Northampton in 1650The Commonwealth did not ong survive Oliver Cromwell after his death the monarchy was restored His corpse was dug up and hanged at Tyburn But much of what he achieved survived him As did his reputation As Christopher Hill writes The symbol of English patriotism in the eighteenth century was to be the unattractive figure of John Bull Oliver Cromwell minus ideology A bit donnish and heavy going in places if don t enjoy easy familiarity with the field But Worth The Effort worth the effort It puts Cromwell in his historical and international context and corrects a few common misconceptions According to Hill the idea that Cromwell ed a Puritan revolution is something of a distortion wine still flowed during the Commonwealth and opera was performed Cromwell also apparently wasn t too keen in capital punishment and political gains against the Dutch outweighed Protestant solidarity and Cromwell refused to assist Venice against Turkey to protect English capital There is also a section on the decline of magic and the psychological aspects of PuritanismInteresting side note Cromwell apparently seriously considered emigrating to New England and he had inks with the Puritans there in particular John Cotton New England returnees also served in his regiments The Bloody Crystal late Christopher Hill was possibly England s greatest historian of the Civil War and of Oliver Cromwell in particular For those who wish toearn about this period I thoroughly recommend this well written ucid history of a period which saw the birth of many political ideas which we value today It will also help to explain the political background not often appreciated of Cromwell s chief propagandist John Milton the poet and his comments on the various Parliaments of this period in his great post war epic Paradise Lost. Erable knowledge of the period to bear on the relationships God's Englishman had with God and England Such a detailed understanding of the workings of providence is vital to understanding Cromwe. .
Ether this picture is from an overall Bear Humbug lack of evidence It is a well written biography and generally is a good introduction to Cromwell You get a feel to the man he is and the conditions of the country he was raised in It serves well in this respect and indeed in drawing the picture of Cromwell However in parts the events are aittle unclear in their significance and I would say that to maximise your reading you would need to have background knowledge of the English Civil War and the significant events to understand the references clearly that are made throughout However apart from that it s good Cromwell is undeniably a difficult figure in history He is Afterlife loved by someoathed by others "AND HIS BRIEF REIGN IS IGNORED "his brief reign is ignored or treated as a brief intermission between the end of the Civil War and the return of the Stuart dynastyThe book does well to intermix the pertinent political and religious ideas and identities of the time the diplomatic and economic situation puritan beliefs national identity and general disenfranchisement Upon this foundation is overlaid the Blue Is for Nightmares life and career of Cromwell from an obscure East Anglian suire to Head of State over Britain and IrelandThe difficult truth is Cromwell was neither good nor bad he was both and has created a paradoxicalegacy is Cromwell was neither good nor bad he was both and has created a paradoxical egacy fought heroically in England against tyranny on the battlefields but committed near genocide in the towns of Ireland He was a bible bashing Puritan who banned Christmas and maypoles but also enjoyed music and worked on Sundays He amassed a huge personal fortune but was noted for wearing shabby clothes He made a case for religious tolerance and welcomed Jewish people back to England but detested Catholics and continued to persecute non conformists He campaigned for a fairer nation but executed Levellers who argued for euality He subdued the Dutch threat and presided over an economic boom whilst simultaneously shipping his own citizens in chains to toil in Jamaican plantations He refused the crown but made himself an uncrowned king We shouldn t celebrate Cromwell but commemorate his atrocities and note his positive actions with caution What I did enjoy about the book is the overview of the Commonwealth and the review of how far the constitutional settlement changed after Parliament won the Civil War England underwent a staggering transformation from a king ordained by God directing the nation by his whim to one administered by common men through a parliament and in accordance with consideration and agreement The English Republic has been airbrushed as the Interregnum which makes it sound ike an awkward blip to royal L'Ingénu lineage rather than a state of being The usual narrative is that our freedoms andiberties were tenderly handed to us by the King via the Magna Carta nonsense Our freedoms and The Strathmore Club liberties were fought and won by the commoners in Marston Moor and Naseby I d say the first andast codified English constitution the Instrument of Government is what we need to Pampa Pampa look back to as it shaped further constitutional reform Never again from that point could a monarch enjoy absolute power In relation to England and Cromwell one man does not make a revolution and the French Revolution is not wholly framed by Robespierre and his slaughters Despite this France is proud with what it achieved constitutionally England achieved all of this over 100 years before France and should celebrate its own revolution in similar way This spirit of reform was carried forward as Hill points out through Whiggism and Chartism Sadly England s revolution doesn t get the acknowledgement it deserves as it makes the Windsor family nervous which is a shame Trust God and keep your powder dry Interesting but not to my taste Christopher Hill no doubt forgot in hisife time about Cromwell than I would have read but the class struggles of recent times for me were not the same as those of the Civil wars of Great Britain and Ireland For mine the struggle was religious Class had ess impact I also found that this book read as several essays pieced together as opposed to a narrative. Of the Commonwealth; and finally Lord Protector Hill eads the reader unsentimentally through Cromwell's ife from his beginnings in Huntingdonshire to his brutal end Hill brings all his consid. ,
I found this a rather heavy donnish book to read though it may well be a defining biography and celebrated book about Oliver Cromwell It takes a chronological approach from his pre revolutionary days as a Fens gentleman farmer though the regocide and civil war to his untimely death in 1660 Many uotes from contemporary historians writers and poets including an avid supporter in Milton slightly complicate rather than elucidate because of the anguage of the time However as a whole it gives a fuller and sympathetic view of Cromwell whose views were not so black and white as some think Religiously tolerant supporting arts and theatre ultimately politically conservative and not intrinsically anti monarchist it may surprise some He was clearly driven by his religious beliefs that he was acting as the instrument of God as one of the chosen though it is hard to reconcile this with the bloodshed he introduced to Ireland and Scotland Things changed for ever Monarchy may have returned but parliament was supreme Also his foreign policy and world wide trading was a precursor of the British Empire and of the forthcoming industrial revolution Unfortunately I can t give this the review it deserves as I don t have it with me to refer to this will prove a test of how memorable the contents it with me to refer to this will prove a test of how memorable the contents In any event I d only read one other book about Cromwell and found this one fascinating It was published in 1970 or 1971 and has remained very readable with only a couple of slightly dated references It covers the ife of Oliver Cromwell chronologically before devoting two chapters to his religious beliefs and influence upon historians Give my scant prior knowledge I was especially struck by Cromwell s influence on foreign policy which amounted to aunching the British empire God s Englishman also conveys how Cromwell operated effectively as a negotiator and mediator conciliating and making vague promises before turning against groups when convenient He appears to have been very much a pragmatist believing that god favoured those who got on with the job in hand The book also draws some fascinating contrasts between the English and French revolutions and the roles of the peasantryworking class therein The chapter on how Oliver Cromwell has been interpreted by history was a definite highlight A conversation between HG Wells and Stalin on the subject of Cromwell is uoted as follows I cheated by googling this for exact wordingSTALIN Recall the history of England in the seventeenth century Did not many say that the old social system had decayed But did it not nevertheless reuire a Cromwell to crush it by forceHG WELLS Cromwell operated on the basis of the constitution and in the name of constitutional orderSTALIN In the name of the constitution he resorted to violence beheaded the king dispersed Parliament arrested some and beheaded others Touch Stalin touch I only ost the thread of this book slightly at one point in the discussion of religious doctrine otherwise it was highly enjoyable and thought provoking This book was the start of our friendship between Aziza and me I first met her as my Australian great reader and book collector in a bookshop when she saw this book on the floor and said Oh I read this book I was a bit surprised so after a brief introduction we became friends and one day she kindly took me to the city Brisbane to visit some good second hand bookshops because I told her I rarely found few of them there in 1999 Perhaps this has not stood test of time since it was written Not fluently nor engaging written and I think it presumes a fair bit of existing knowledge Perhaps it earns its reputation by providing a counterpoint to other books about CromwellIt is interesting but that comes from the events it describes rather than the style of writing It s uite short so a reasonable place to find some basic factsCromwell seems hard to pin down He doesn t seem to have had a grand plan nor was he adhering to some overarching ideology It s almost as if he stumbles into various situations This is the impression given yet I can t tell wh. A nuanced biography of Oliver Cromwell breaking down Cromwell's ife into different parts fenland farmer and humble backbencher; stalwart of the good old cause and the New Model Army; key figure.
