The Hundred Years War was central and paradoxical for the writing of English history, simultaneously galvanising pugnacious articulations of nationalism and exposing their bankruptcy. However, the conflict remains a sticking point in scholarship of medieval multilingualism and its complex relationship to nationalism, often overlooked in calls for a "post-national" vocabulary. This book charts the narration of the war in English literature, from contem porary chroniclers and poets, such as Chaucer, documenting the conflict that dominated the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, to later polemicists and playwrights looking back on their medieval past, including Shakespeare. It exp lores how its propagandists navigated its cultural minefields, and then how their mythologisations became ciphers for Tudor expressions of nationalism. Challenging the periodisation that habitually divides the medieval from the ea rly modern, it shows how an event of the magnitude and longevity of the Hundred Years War shaped ways of thinking about English history and language from Chaucer and Lydgate to Spenser and Shakespeare. It also brings to light a ri ch and neglected corpus of Hundred Years War literature, from anonymous chroniclers and balladeers to agonising eyewitness accounts. Joanna Bellis is the Fitzjames Research Fellow in Old and Middle English at Merton Col lege, Oxford. N° de ref. de la librería 9971

REVIEW OF ENGLISH STUDIES Bellis should . be commended for bridging the divides between the medieval and early modern periods and between historical and literary studies . (Her book's) kaleidoscopic organization and elegant style render its complex analysis of the longue duree of the Hundred Years War in England clear and persuasive. JOURNAL OF BRITISH STUDIES Offers valuable insight into a long-standing puzzle besetting scholars of Middle English: that England was deeply, strangely, obsessively also French. Bellis not only carefully peels back the layers of overlapping ideologies here, but she also elegantly works with all the paradoxes of Enghe layers of overlapping ideologies here, but she also elegantly works with all the paradoxes of England's relationship with
