'Henry VII' is a biographical novel by Charles Williams depicting the life of the British monarch. For him, this was an attempt to shed light on a less-explored historical figure. Charles Williams (1886-1945) was a British theologian, playwright, novelist and poet. As a member of the 'Inklings' literary group at Oxford, his work supported a strong sense of narrative. He acknowledged the spiritual undercurrents present in life and his literary explorations into Christian fantasy writing, such as his 'Descent into Hell' (1937), earned him many followers. This classic work is now being republished in a new modern edition with a specially commissioned introductory biography.
