THE RULES OF THE WRITING GAME: HISTORY AND FICTION FROM VERGIL THROUGH GEOFFREY OF MONMOUTH AND THE ARTHURIAN VULGATE CYCLE, TO GIBBON AND CARLYLE
Moderator: Nancy Partner, McGill University
We take this as our premise for this session: "Both historiography and fiction are genres of writing, not bundles of fact or nonfact in verbal shape. In either case, then, it all boils down to the rules of the writing game."
