This wide-ranging guide offers an accessible introduction to both the genre and the critical debates around it.

&quote;
In a way you want him to put the flesh back on the skeleton that is history’ &quote;
Highlighted by 7 Kindle users
&quote;
This articulation highlights the artificiality of the novel, introduces a fundamental metafictional element to the form, and demonstrates that as a genre the historical novel provokes a certain anxiety and disquiet on the part of the writer. &quote;
Highlighted by 7 Kindle users
&quote;
The form is obsessed with pointing out its own partiality, with introducing other voices and undermining its authority. &quote;
