Podcast: Falling in Love with Dickon
Hello, Plantagenet and Tudor enthusiasts.
We’re excited to bring you this literary podcast. We call it Falling In Love with Dickon: A Literary Look at Richard III. Today, e-Royalty will take you into the realm of historical fiction.
For many of us, fiction provides an easy and enjoyable entry into the world of the Plantagenets and Tudors. And we have a wonderful time, meeting the men and women of this distant past! We feel that we know them. We know their emotional ups and downs, even their nicknames.
Good historical fiction, though, does more than entertain. It arouses our curiosity. It inspires us to immerse ourselves in this very special corner of the past.
We invite you now to tune in as e-Royalty.com’s Chronicler, Peg Baker, and our literary critic and reviewer, Lisa Sampson, discuss two different interpretations of Richard III, or “Dickon” as we come to know and love him, as found in the novels of Sharon Kay Penman and Reay Tannahill.
And, if you’d like to know more, be sure and visit us at www.e-Royalty.com where we bring the Middle Ages to life.
