From Shakespeare's plays and contemporary verse to modern novels, this annotated bibliography covers fiction written about the Wars of the Roses since 1440. Providing a valuable resource for students and teachers of English history, the volume acquaints the reader with fiction that shaped both contemporary views and later perceptions. The partisan ballads of the period show the sentiments of all classes and factions. The dramas of Shakespeare shaped the opinions of succeeding generations, with many of the novels written prior to the 20th century showing Shakespeare's influence. The volume opens with an introductory essay overviewing the conflict and discussing some of the works. It then provides fully-annotated entries on over 550 novels, short stories, verse, and plays. Most annotations are descriptive, but some point to weaknesses in historical accuracy or literary style.
