Historical novels have become increasingly popular, notably Hilary
Mantel’s Man Booker prize-winning Wolf Hall and Pat Barker’s
Regeneration trilogy set during the First World War. This day school will consider the process of recreating history using primary and secondary sources, and will explore how to create credible settings which convey the spirit, manners and social conditions of the past faithfully, whilst simultaneously exciting and entertaining the reader. We will look at passages from popular historical novels and examine the way historical research is seamlessly woven into a story, discussing the way fiction can bring the past to life and inform our way of interpreting history.
The session will involve practical writing exercises using primary sources so bring your laptops, paper and pens.
