Moral issues in historical fiction

Speaker:

Why do novelists use historical subjects – beyond just mining a wealth of good stories? What other agendas are there? How far might these include the righting of long-gone colonial wrongs and long-forgotten social injustices? Writer Jonathan Falla (Blue Poppies, Glenfarron) looks at the wide range of moral issues addressed by historical fiction, and considers the purpose and pitfalls of such works.
