English Historical Literature in the Fourteenth Century

John Taylor

A Clarendon Press Publication

In this work, John Taylor examines not only monastic chronicle writing, medieval letters, and political poetry of the 14th century; but also analyzes the background of the chroniclers and poets, the problems they encountered, and the audience for whom they wrote. Offering a more personal perspective on events than those recorded in governmental documents, this work is a valuable addition to the historiography of the period.
