Absolutely, and well put. Although not written with 100% historical veracity (how could it be, when so little has been published on what they want to write about?), there is a concern for these characters as human beings who really did live - not as extensions of a fantasy. Same goes for how they are evolving as writers - they take the craft seriously, and are intent on developing their skills.quote:
