Abstract

Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles are among the defining works of twentieth-century historical fiction. This paper discusses Dunnett's creation of a renaissance man by examining her hero against the meticulously-researched background of his sixteenth-century context - in particular, the formative effect of his reading.
