F407 Fall 2018 Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall: A Fresh Angle on the Tudor Matter
Wednesdays, 9:40–11:05, September 19–Nov. 7
Instructor: Ellen Moody

We'll read Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and discuss Bring Up the Bodies. Our context will be nonfictionalized biographies of Tudor/Stuart queens and the immensely popular film adaptations of the Henry VIII Tudor matter, especially Wolf Hall and The Other Boleyn Girl. Our goal is to explore historical fiction, romance, and film, and to ask why this particular era appeals so strongly.
