About This Title

In Diana, Charles, & the Queen, William Heyen captures the successes and shortcomings of the royals and allows us to see, through his poetic vision, the humanity of each character: the young Elizabeth contemplating love while crying into a cloth woven by Gandhi, a gallant Charles courts a wide-eyed Diana with anecdotes of his travels, and gradually, we see the marriage of Diana and Charles crumbling in its later years. Completed before Diana's death, this book is a multi-leveled literary work, stunning in its depth, and far removed from what has previously been offered the reading public on the subject of the royal family.


Childhood

At Windsor, this artifact: the bullet
from Lord Nelson's heart; & this: the shirt
worn by Charles I when executed—
still stained black with his blood;

& these: the prayer book of Sir Thomas More;
from Joan of Arc, one charred molar;
the Green Knight's sword & breastplate;
Grendel's evil eye solidified to agate. . .
