Wolf Hall

Posted on Updated on

Unless you’ve been living in a bunker, you will have heard that Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize winning novel has been televised.  This fictional adaption of the political and personal lives of key figures of the Tudor period has had critics swooning: “masterful” says the Telegraph, “sumptuous, intelligent and serious” raves The Guardian. “The REAL Game of Thrones” adds The Daily Express, insightfully.

Whether you want full immersion in the detail of the period or a brief overview, the Wodehouse Library can help.  Here is a selection of our resources, which can be found on display this week.
