Sir Walter Ralegh and the Quest for El Dorado
By Marc Aronson
In this biography, Aronson draws on the events, intrigues and literature of Elizabethan times to create a richly layered account of "the first modern man." Ralegh's search for El Dorado drives the elegantly structured plot and serves as a unifying allegory.
