Stephanie Russo and Laura Saxton - Anne Boleyn in Historical Fiction

About this event

The November seminar will feature a panel presentation with Stephanie Russo (Macquarie University) and Laura Saxton (ACU Melbourne) on Anne Boleyn in Historical Fiction. Dr Saxton will analyse the intersection of characterisation, authority, and subjectivity in Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall series, arguing that her representation of Cromwell as an observer is crucial to that of Henry’s queens. Following on, Dr Russo will examine the Gothic elements (imprisonment, a violent death and, of course, sex) surrounding the story of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second and most infamous wife, suggesting that the Gothic mash-up, then, heightens and makes visible the ideological underpinnings of any Anne Boleyn fiction.
