From historical novels, historical novels are artistic novels, definitely not a textbook-like, tasteless description.


But what historical novel ignores historical facts would be to give the reader a foolishness.


If you take an extreme example, how would it be if the novel of the wind saying that Isao Kondo is a samurai who is faithful and who is to be killed in the battle of Kamonemon?


Readers will certainly be disappointed.


In the case of a play, the audience must be boiling.


In the case of such a simple, well-known fact, I notice immediately, but it is not easy to understand that many similar fictional novels are less and less like this.


In other words, public literary art is despised, is not such a stupid thing troubling?


Those who wish to study literature should study science rather than abandon traditional, traditional bad breath and kill time for imitating the surface of "genius".


A person writing a historical novel must be a historian as well as a novelist.

About two mass objects


The other kind of period novel, what is called popular literature and popular things.


This is also called other things, 髷 物, new 講 談, etc, but as these popular and various names are given, it points to the most popular novels.

Therefore, it is interesting and remains only entertaining for the moment, insofar as it can not be criticized from the standpoint of artistic literary view, it can be said that it is a kind of a low-class novel equal to worthless .


As for the depiction of psychological processes, social historical materials, personality and thought as an element of the novel, neither reading nor writing is expected, so it is natural that artistic criticism can not be applied It must be said that.
