"Some novels use history as a backdrop for imaginary characters; others fictionalize the lives of actual figures, inserting invented episodes among real events; still others distort, add, and omit. As in science fiction, some fictional pasts are paradigms of the present, other exotically different; both invent pasts for readers' delectation. Yet historical novelists also declare intentions similar to historians', striving for verisimilitude to help readers feel and know the past."
David Lowenthal, The Past is a Foreign Country (Cambridge: CUP 1985)
