I’m very pleased to see that my article on Gore Vidal’s novel Burr has now been published by the Literary Encyclopedia. I enjoyed reading this classic as it’s far from your typical historical fiction. Though meticulous in its detail about the once Vice President Aaron Burr, placing the reader into the end of the 18th century through to Burr’s death in the 1850s, the fictional elements are also prominent. I do wonder if Hilary Mantel was inspired by Vidal.
