JAMESON, Fredric. O romance histórico ainda é possível?. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2007, n.77, pp.185-203. ISSN 1980-5403. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002007000100009.
The historical novel is organized into an opposition between a public or historical level (whether customs, events, crises or leaders) and a existential or individual level expressed by that narrative category we call characters. The art of historical novel consists on the skill with which that intersection is modeled and conveyed, in an unique invention which must be produced unexpectedly in every case.
