The Black Death: A Personal Historyby John Hatcher
Synopses & Reviews
In this fresh approach to the history of the Black Death, John Hatcher, a world-renowned scholar of the Middle Ages, recreates everyday life in a mid-fourteenth century rural English village. By focusing on the experiences of ordinary villagers as they lived—and died—during the Black Death (134550 AD), Hatcher vividly places the reader directly into those tumultuous years and describes in fascinating detail the day-to-day existence of people struggling with the tragic effects of the plague. Dramatic scenes portray how contemporaries must have experienced and thought about the momentous events—and how they tried to make sense of it all.
From a leading expert comes an original and compelling account of the Black Death's devastation on a small English village during the 14th century. By focusing on the experiences of ordinary people, Hatcher vividly places the reader directly inside those tumultuous times.
