I also find inspiration through immersing myself in the culture of the period through its arts, literature and politics. One of the most important literary inspirations for Bloodie Bones was John Clare’s beautiful poem The Mores, which brings home the impact of enclosures on the working people affected by them. And I also see connections between what’s happening today and what happened in the past – the enclosures movement, for example, shaped our landscape, it helped alter people’s working patterns, and encouraged the development of industrial towns.

In all the commemorations around the one hundredth anniversary of votes for (some) women, it’s easy to forget that there were many women who didn’t want the vote. In 1908 a National Women’s Anti-Suffrage League was formed. It later combined with the Men’s League to form the National League for Opposing Women’s Suffrage. One of the leaders of the anti suffrage movement was best-selling novelist... Read more of this blog post »
