Creina Mansfield & Michael Tunnicliffe
‘Man is wolf to man’ in the Tudor Court as personal desires intersect with politics and religion. The king needs a male heir and so wants to annul his twenty year marriage in order to marry Anne Boleyn. The lowly-born Thomas Cromwell is given the task of making this possible, despite opposition from the papacy and the political establishment. How he sets about doing this re-shapes England. We shall study: Wolf Hall (2009), which charts Cromwell’s rise to greatness; Bring Up the Bodies (2012), which covers the machinations that led to Boleyn’s beheading; and The Mirror and the Light (2020), which is a more difficult read for all those who find Mantel’s Thomas Cromwell a sympathetic character.
