Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The extraordinary world so brilliantly re-created in The Hollow Crown was a turbulent and dangerous one. England was racked by famine, rebellion, civil war, and plaguewith the descent of the Black Death and the horrific, ultimately futile bloodbath of the Hundred Years Warand yet, despite the turmoil, this period left a magnificent artistic and literary legacy, creating a recognizable spoken and written form of the English language. Ranging from peasant to king, from field to fortressincluding the events that are part of the modern world's collective imagination, not least through Shakespeare's history playsThe Hollow Crown brings the texture of late medieval England to life.

Synopsis:

Subtitled, "A History Of Britain In The Late Middle Ages". The late Middle Ages were one of the most dramatic and turbulent periods in Britain's history. This brilliant history re-creates every aspect of life during an era of rebellion, civil war and plague.

Synopsis:

There is no more haunting, compelling period in Britain's history than the later middle ages. This account brings the reader a long lost world, a strange, Catholic, rural country of monks, peasants, knights and merchants, almost perpetually at war, but continues to define so much of England's national myth.
