Description
Information
In his eagerness for information and fascination with personality, Froissart is more than a match for today's journalist. Travelling extensively from Scotland and Wales to France, Italy and the Netherlands, Foissart conversed with gentlemen of rank everywhere and proved to have a remarkable knack in persuading those about him to divulge their secrets. His delight in the smallest details of chivalry in action, cavalry skirmishes and castle sieges, as well as courageous actions and courtly deeds is evident on every page.Drawn with a verve that recalls Chaucer - Froissart's almost exact contemporary - the Chronicles give an unrivalled picture of the Age of Chivalry. Fresh, immediate and laced with a certain disrespect for the Establishment, they tell of acts of gallantry, tournaments, feasts and wars that make fascinating reading.
