About this item

The author examines the character of Francis Crawford of Lymond, created by Dorothy Dunnett (1923-2001) for a six-novel historical fiction series known as the Lymond Chronicles, set in 1547-1558 in Europe. She analyzes the nature of this hero and the world of distrust, betrayal, and indirection in which he lives, as well as the playfulness in the narrative. She explores his relationships with friends, enemies, and family members; how the series is espionage fiction that defines the nature of the hero; and the role of games in the world of the novels and the activity of the narrator.
