Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall trilogy is deservedly famous for its capacity to bring Tudor England to life. Remarkably, although we feel we know our way around Austin Friars, and can imagine the King arriving at Wolf Hall, Mantel gives us comparatively little description of rooms, or furniture. Yet even before we saw them in the BBC series we had a sense of the interiors in which so much of the action of the novels is set. This talk asks how that’s so, and what it means about us as readers, especially as readers of Hilary Mantel.
