Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1974 THE LETHDRIDQE HERALD 37 Lady Antonia writes history with style By PAMELA MARSH Cbriitian Science Monitor England I walked round one of those quiet squares that give London a small-town feeling and rang the bell of No 52 The door was opened by a poised young man who irtvited me in with all the aplomb and courtesy that one might expect from someone three times his age Actually I suppose he was around 10 years old Wires had gotten crossed over the time of my and his Lady Antonu wasn't expecting me I wasn't expecting her or rather I wasn't expecting a historian to be blonde with strikingly good looks Or to be going barefoot and wearing a caftan But then her historical biographies Queen of and don't conform to their label either they are properly plumb and but its outside hasn't prevented from becoming a best and will almost certainly follow suit They re both books to delight readers who want many-threaded characters that grow and change under stress action that springs out of the characters characters Based on deep research and written with considerable they can't be called popular m the but they are lively and eminently readable Cromwell ought to make at least one statesman happy Whenever Chou En-lai talks to distinguished he peppers his conversation with the rhetorical ques- tion What would Cromwell have done in the Now he can guess more accurately Lady Antonia has sent him a copy of her book Lady Antonia is a member of the Longford one of the most remarkable in England Her Francis Pakenham seventh Earl oi Longford is among other a former Cabinet a a campaigner against pornography and an author Her Lady Longford twice stood for tht Elizabeth Longford who those other bebt selling biographies Wellington and Queen In fact there was one year when four members of the immediate Longford family all hdd books published That suggests Lady Antonia A little gnl bui rounded by A frantically scribbling family instilling her with the urge to wnte But it wasn 1 like that In rny childhood the family werp all politicians mother didn t start writing until shf wa.s 30 The political atmosphere persibk hei husband is hir Hugh Conservative MP foi Staflord likes to have her children around her when she does her own writing t ikf up lots of time but then so they should Writing is a Military business and it mco have to bieak off The clnlcliwi remind thai life goes on They 10 like that 'Stop writing 'Of it agonizing if you are getting started But parents aren t the only people who have that kind of interruption though they talk as if they were Why had she chosen Cromwell' I wondered So that she could tackle 'an absolute opposite to Queen of Scots He is a man who made his own she a woman born a Queen who rather wrecked herself Of course no nonhistorwn can talk about the Protector without getting around to the anecdote in which he tells his portrait paintei not to leave out his warts me not at Cromwell said It seemed to me that historians have given us the and nothing but the warts until Lady Antonia restored the balance She didn t discount the in his chaiacter but felt he had been much maligned He was naturally a very tolerant man with enormous integrity and grandeur He was full of virtue that old- fashioned word Public she is in shoit supply today Ted Heath has it I have been studying him and he tends to think of what is right than what is expedient Some people may argue that this is not good politics She told me that Prime Minister Heath and Cromwell have something else in common a love of music 'Cromwell used to give organ recitals at Hampton Court and puzzle his foreign ambassadors much as Heath must do now But in this country there s nothing comparable to the enormous power that the Protector had But it was something like the position of the American presidency To re-create Cromwell the way she has done must have taken almost a novelist's creativity Does it come naturally'' Or is it inspiration' I rn wary of talking about inspiration Nothing is done without enormous hard work but I find inspiration does come suddenly when I m moving about or in a theater a or going for a walk It is clear that this is the solution to that problem I like seeing people in the evening i often get these flashes while we are talking it hard to let Cromwell go after had spent so long with him'' No Theif he is standing between hard covers and I vc what I have to h-jy Very few read then book again And I never write artidfs based on rny books They art' always less good and have If ss passion Rehashes Besides I'm riot leillj interested in whit I have pubhshf-d onK in what I'm going to do next What is that' 'I VP written a play called The Heiomes
