particular set of circumstances. This way, it allows the readers to re-experience the human and
social motives that led people to think, feel, and act as they did in the historical reality. So, by

impact on contemporary times. Historical fiction also offers the readers a thorough insight into
the minds of people of past generations. Therefore, these books induce empathy and develop a
live connection between past and present. So, if you like reading historical fiction, then you can

Reading historical fiction is a great way to learn more about history. Good authors always
research the time when the story took place and then they weave some interesting details into
the story. The result is that we enjoy the fiction, but learn a lot of things from the history. On
the other hand, fantasy is a different challenge altogether, unlike in historical fiction; nothing depends on the fact, except that here the writers have to keep the characters believable and
The blurring and intersection of fact and fiction assist the writers to define the historical novels.
The same is true when you read travel books like Chester to Chepstow Wales travel books. But
the only difference is that the historian writers add some element of interpretation. Besides,
reading history also allows people to understand past events. So, by reading historical fiction,
people can be affected by what happened in earlier times. The historical writers expose the
readers to the inner lives of people of another place and time. This way, they illuminate the
untold stories of history allowing the readers to experience more complex truth.
The historical fictions unlike the history books recount only the factual highpoints of the earlier
times. And these also describe stories through the characters. These describe what the
characters feel and think in the realm of fiction. It also defines the human and social motives
and emotions of the past characters inside actual historical reality.
While writing these fiction, the historical novelist needs to understand first what is imagined
and what is real. And then they need to create authentic realities for the readers. To do this
successfully, the writer has to understand the concrete world where the characters of the
fiction live and interact to create true-to-life dialogues and scenes. For example, the writer
needs to describe the context, what the place looked like, what clothing were worn, what
books they used to read, the music they listened to, the foods they ate at that time, etc.
Although what the characters feel, think, do, or say can be imagined, everyday items like
farming tools, electronic equipment, food, means of transport, money, beverages etc. must be
contextually correct and as close as can be to the actual setting of that time and place.
