John Lydgate's importance for the history of English literature is assured by his contribution to the literary culture of the fifteenth century. He maintained a Chaucerian ideal of style, applying poetic form to current events and diffusing literary and historical knowledge by means of his verse compilations. He was not so much a creator as a preserver, combining the functions of author, scribe and librarian.--Jacket
