General Discussion Topic: Timing is Everything

[ Edited ]
Why do you think Chevalier chose to set her novel in 1792? Why not a few years earlier, or later?


Note: This discussion topic is suitable for any and all chapters of Burning Bright.

I think this is a great time, the French Revolution is going on, London is being industrialized. It's a great period in which to set a novel. The character's are colorful and they revolve around present day(1792) events.

I agree. With the happenings in France, tensions must have been high & excitable in England at the time. It makes events seem a little more sharper and anxious.
