What is Kobo Super Points?
In inimitable style, Hilary Mantel presents a picture of a half-made society on the cusp of change, where individuals fight or embrace their fate with passion and courage. With a vast array of characters, overflowing with incident, the novel re-creates an era when the personal and political are separated by a hairbreadth, where success brings unlimited power but a single failure means death.
This is a novel too in which nothing is wasted, and nothing completely disappears.
With breathtaking subtlety--one quite ceases to notice the way in which she takes on the most intimate male habits of thought and speech--Mantel gives us a Henry who is sexually pathetic, and who needs a very down-to-earth counselor. The means by which Mantel grounds and anchors her action so convincingly in the time she describes, while drawing so easily upon the past and hinting so indirectly at the future, put her in the very first rank of historical novelists.
Wolf Hall is a magnificent service to the language and literature whose early emancipation it depicts and also, in its demystifying of one of history's wickedest men, a service to the justice that Josephine Tey first demanded in The Daughter of Time.
Stylistically, her fly-on-the-wall approach is achieved through the present tense, of which she is a master. Her prose is muscular, avoiding cod Tudor dialogue and going for direct modern English.
The result is Ms Mantel's best novel yet. It's no wonder that her masterful book just won this year's Booker Prize.
That means anguish, exultation, deals, spies, decapitations, and fabulous clothes. She always goes for color, richness, music.
She has read Shakespeare closely. One also hears the accents of the young James Joyce. Thomas Cromwell remains a controversial and mysterious figure.
Mantel has filled in the blanks plausibly, brilliantly. Wolf Hall has epic scale but lyric texture. Its plus pages turn quickly, winged and falconlike.
She burrows down through the historical record to uncover the tiniest, most telling details, evoking the minutiae of history as vividly as its grand sweep.
The dialogue is so convincing that she seems to have been, in another life, a stenographer taking notes in the taverns and palaces of England.
Instead of bringing the past to us, her writing, brilliant and black, launches us disconcertingly into the past. We are space-time travelers landed in an alien world. And their sharp-clawed machinations are presented with nonstop verve in a book that can compress a wealth of incisiveness into a very few well-chosen words.
Follow the Author
Deft and diabolical as they are, Ms. Mantel's slyly malicious turns of phrase.
This style implies enormous respect for her readers, as if she believes that we are as intelligent and empathetic as she is, and one of the acute pleasures of reading her books is that we sometimes find ourselves living up to those expectations. If you are anything like me, you will finish Wolf Hall wishing it were twice as long as its pages. Torn away from this sixteenth-century world, in which you have come to know the engaging, pragmatic Cromwell as if he were your own brother--as if he were yourself--you will turn to the Internet to find out more about him.
