Historical novels tell interesting stories about a time and its people, requiring authors to do extensive research so their writing accurately reflects the history. Using Hamnet, by Maggie O'Farrell, as the launching point, this class will offer a one-hour look at the history of England in the time of Shakespeare. We will continue with a one-hour discussion of the novel as contemporary literature. Readers and history buffs are welcome! Participants should read Hamnet before class begins.
