The minor Latin works by John Gower ( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and Latin and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gower's achievement in writing substantially in all three primary languages of his time --Anglo-French, English, and Latin--was a source of pride to others and, undoubtedly, to him too: into the final years of his life he continued to produce poetry in all three languages. In Praise of Peace [is] in the same position as the shorter Latin works edited and translated in this volume: ignored, neglected, reduced, or relegated to the dusty realm of footnotes."--Publisher's website

His film and television productions have entertained and educated generations of viewers about life in the Middle Ages"--
Who murdered Chaucer? : a medieval mystery by Terry Jones ( Book )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this work of historical speculation Terry Jones and a team of international scholars investigate the mystery surrounding the death of Geoffrey Chaucer over 600 years ago. An important public figure, a diplomat and the brother-in-law to John of Gaunt - one of the most powerful men in the kingdom - Chaucer was celebrated as his country's finest living poet, rhetorician and scholar: the pre-eminent intellectual superstar of his time. We have a great deal of information about his life. And yet nothing at all is known of his death." "In 1400 his name simply disappears from the record. We don't know how he died, where or when; there is no official confirmation of his death and no chronicle mentions it; no notice of his funeral or burial. He left no will and there's nothing to tell us what happened to his estate. He didn't even leave any manuscripts. How could this be?" "What if he was murdered? What if he and his writings had become politically inconvenient in the seismic social shift that occurred with the overthrow of the liberal Richard II by the reactionary, oppressive regime of Henry IV? Would the dogs of suppression, unleashed by the ruthlessly ambitious Archbishop Arundel, have been snapping at the heels of a dangerous poet?" "This hypothesis is the introduction to a reading of Chaucer's writings as evidence that might be held against him, interwoven with a portrait of one of the most turbulent periods in English history, its politics and its personalities."--BOOK JACKET
