The creation of anne boleyn a new look at englands most notorious queen by susan bordo. The creation of anne boleyn creates in its readers the deep hunger for more of the same itll be a cold hearted reader indeed who doesnt finish the book wishing bordo would have expanded it into a big fat study of the history and fiction of all the wives or better yet of annes own daughter queen elizabeth i but our author is something of an intellectual dynamo and unlike poor anne shes got plenty of options. Overall the creation of anne boleyn gives us an in depth look at this tragic queen while i did not agree with some of her views of how she portrays alison weir and philippa gregory i was reminded that anne deserves to be further examined the novel was very engaging and it was fun to learn how popular culture has shaped our image of anne
