Well, now. Who’d’ve thought that research done over 20 years ago would come back to me right now?
Historical Fiction writers are unashamed plagiarist’s. They (or maybe just me!!) love to use personal accounts of the time like letters, memoires, diaries and travelogues.
I’d used Coryat’s travel impressions several times. Along with his patterns of speech and vocabulary.
For some unknown reason he is embedded in this new line of research. Not only via his timeline, his journeys, his patron… but also his closest friends.
The Game’s Afoot as Henry V said long before Sherlock Holmes :o)
