🎧 Oliver Cromwell's Women
🎧 Not Just the Tudors • 40m
How can women be reinstated into the narrative of history when their presence is only faintly attested to in the remaining sources? How can fiction help us in imagining their lives? Is it legitimate to write fictionalised versions of people who really lived?
In this edition of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb addresses these and other questions with Dr. Miranda Malins, a novelist and historian who specialises in the life and career of Oliver Cromwell, his family, and the politics of the era. Her new novel, The Rebel Daughter is a gripping evocation of the Civil War, and the hidden stories of women at the heart of power.
