Title: Revisiting British royalty myths in Alan Bennett’s The Uncommon Reader
Authors: Culea, Mihaela

Series/Report no.: Volume 17;Number 1
Abstract: A number of English writers have started to criticize the monarchy in line with public anti-monarchist views which are mainly stimulated by campaign group Republic.2 Among them, Sue Townsend (1946 – ) is both comical and subtly ironic in her novels The Queen and I (1992), Number Ten (2002) or Queen Camilla (2006). In The Uncommon Reader (2006/2008), the critical voice of another English writer, Alan Bennett (1934 – ), is milder and more sympathetic; yet, underneath the apparently humorous attitude concerning the British monarchy, he also tackles some significant concerns or complaints of the British subjects concerning their sovereign.
