    Abstract:
    This essay seeks to demonstrate that Courtney Milan’s The Duke Who Didn’t (2020) is a “novel of ideas” which challenges readers to examine the concept of “historical accuracy” and the racism that may be perpetuated by its invocation. The historical context in which the novel itself emerged is also examined.
