On Reflection: does literature shape or reflect History?
Friday, 28 March 14.00-15.0
Understanding history is important to us: it not only tells us where we've come from, but also, more importantly, where we are going. But how much of history is what the authors of the time present themselves as? Do we have to view historical literature as a prism of the society in which it is set? Festival Chairman Anthony Riches, historian Clare Mulley and novelist Mark Oldfield address the 2019 Festival Theme History: On Reflection in this opening panel of the 2019 Festival.
