Abstract:
This thesis investigates some possible difficulties that historical novelists may face when writing about near-mythic personas such as the royals, or in this specific case, the American 'royal' Jackie Kennedy. While not offering prescriptive advice, nor purporting to offer solutions to problems that writers may encounter, this paper examines a set of project-specific discoveries that I have made in regards to my novel, 'The pink suit'. It is my intent to offer this very particular circumstance as a case history, using my own personal experiences with the publishing process and the specifics of my creative practice, which is influenced by others who write about iconic figures including Colm Toibin, Colum McCann and Hilary Mantel. I have also included in this work a critical analysis of a selection of contemporary novels. The rationale for choosing these, partly, arises from the dual circumstances of their being identified as 'literary' and their featuring of Mrs. Kennedy as a character.
