Mary Boleyn , sister of Anne Thomas Boleyn , father of Anne and Mary Thomas Cranmer , Archbishop of Canterbury Jane Seymour , who later became the third of Henry's six wives Title[ edit ] The title comes from the name of the Seymour family seat at Wolfhall or Wulfhall in Wiltshire; the title's allusion to the old Latin saying Homo homini lupus "Man is wolf to man" serves as a constant reminder of the dangerously opportunistic nature of the world through which Cromwell navigates.

Wolf Hall succeeds on its own terms and then some, both as a non-frothy historical novel and as a display of Mantel's extraordinary talent. Lyrically yet cleanly and tightly written, solidly imagined yet filled with spooky resonances, and very funny at times, it's not like much else in contemporary British fiction.

A sequel is apparently in the works, and it's not the least of Mantel's achievements that the reader finishes this page book wanting more. Mantel just wrote and wrote and wrote. I have yet to meet anyone outside the Booker panel who managed to get to the end of this tedious tome. God forbid there might be a sequel, which I fear is on the horizon. From the French Revolution of A Place of Greater Safety to the Middle England of Beyond Black , hers are scrupulously moral — and scrupulously unmoralistic — books that refuse to shy away from the underside of life, finding even in disaster a kind of bleak and unconsoling humour.
