Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first critical edition of the text which chronicles Katharine of Aragon's arrival in England, her triumphant entry into London (1501), her marriage to Prince Arthur, the tournament held in honor of that marriage, and Prince Arthur's funeral a few months later. Providing a complete picture of the state of English court drama at a crucial point in its development, it casts the historical materials into the form of medieval romance, occasionally borrowing cadences from Malory to describe Katharine, Arthur, and Henry VII. No other contemporary source offers such a vivid account of the social history, visual arts, and drama at the beginning of the sixteenth century.

Synopsis:

In October and November of 1501, the Tudor court devised a festival to celebrate the marriage of Henry VII's eldest son, Prince Arthur, to Katharine of Aragon, daughter of the Spanish monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella. The Receyt of the Ladie Kateryneis a detailed account of the event, probably compiled as an offical memorial. It chronicles Katharine of Aragon's arrival in England, her triumphant entry into London, her marriage to Prince Arthur, the disguisings and tournament held in honour of that marriage, and Prince Arthur's funeral in Ludlow and Worcester a few months later. Introductions on the nature of the festivities and on the text are followed by the text with appendix, Commentary, Select glossary, Biographical index and Select Bibliography.
