Editorial Reviews


An extremely well-researched and well-structured book...(produced to) the highest quality, with particularly fine colour and black and white reproductions. --Journal of the Australian Early Medieval Association

Beautifully illustrated, detailed and clearly written, Barber's book is a fine introduction for the general reader. His chapter on courtly poetry and romance is the best short treatment of the subject I've come across in a decade of intermittent teaching on medieval literature. --Touchstone

Very attractive (and) makes a fascinating yet complex subject accessible to all. THE RICARDIAN A very accessible text that both informs and entertains, enhanced greatly by full colour illustrations from period sources with accompanying photographs. WWW.RANDLESREVIEWS.CO.UK Written in an engaging style, and gloriously illustrated throughout. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW --Various
