Speaker: Stella Tillyard (author and historian)
Stella Tillyard has the unenviable job of bringing the lectures from the conference to a close and she does so by going full circle. On Monday we provided the podcast from Hilary Mantel’s talk where she stressed what makes a good historical novel is its historical authenticity. Tillyard argues the opposite – what makes a historical novel good is a a good novelist not its claims to authenticity.
