Later Medieval English Literature
The remarkable and diverse literature produced in the fascinating later medieval period - one of war, transitions, and challenges - is not as widely known as it deserves to be. In this descriptive guide the pre-eminent scholar of medieval literature Douglas Gray provides the non-specialist reader with an illuminating account of the extensive literature written in English from the death of Chaucer to the early sixteenth century . Placing the works under consideration in their landscape of cultural history, Gray's survey includes a valuable chronology, an informative introductory survey, and detailed sections on prose, poetry, Scottish writing, and drama.
