Review

One might expect Gower, with his revisions in both CA and VC and with his Cronica Tripertita, to occupy a significant place in a study of the Lancastrian enlistment of both poetry and history in their quest for legitimacy in the first decades of the fifteenth century, but Strohm mentions our poet only once, and without reference to Gower's participation in Henry's cause.
