Book Description

Part biography, part cultural history, The Creation of Anne Boleyn is a reconstruction of Boleyn’s life and an illuminating look at her very active afterlife in the popular imagination. With recent novels, movies, and television shows, Anne has been having a twenty-first-century moment, but Bordo shows how many generations of polemicists, biographers, novelists, and filmmakers have imagined and reimagined her: whore, martyr, cautionary tale, proto-“mean girl,” feminist icon, and everything in between. Drawing on scholarship and razor-sharp analysis, Bordo probes the complexities of one of history’s most intriguing women, teasing out what we actually know about Anne Boleyn and what we think we know about her.

    Fab looking book

  25. It’s really interesting to compare all these diffrent sides of Anne Boleyn, especially now that we have so many book, TV series and films potrayal of her. My personally favourite is Natalie Dormer in The Tudors. She did amazing job is Season 2 and potrayed Anne as a powerful human, player, mother, religious person and a Queen. It is fun to compare this potrayal and its actions and dialogues to the actual actions and dialogues of hers.
