JOHN LYDGATE:


§ A key figure of his age just as important and influential as Chaucer.

§ His works are largely historical.

§ The Fall of Princes (1431-1438) was his best work read for a century with popularity.

§ Troy Book (1412-1420) is longer than Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde. Many consider this work as John Lydgate’s greatest achievement.
