The award-winning Music & Silence is one of Rose Tremain’s most popular works. Set in the court of Christian IV of Denmark during the seventeenth century, it is a beautiful and enduring tale of love, intrigue, and betrayal. Part history, part imagination, Music & Silence lyrically evokes the rich tapestry of court life. The obsessions and secret woes of a host of memorable characters are brilliantly realized by Tremain, who deftly weaves together the numerous subplots. We encounter a king, tormented by his quest for perfection; the raucous and spoiled Kirsten, raging against the constraints of her queenly situation; and the silently grieving Emilia.
