Literary Culture at the Court of Richard II.

Scattergood, V.J. "Literary Culture at the Court of Richard II." In English Court Culture in the Later Middle Ages. Ed. Scattergood, V.J and Sherborne, J.W. London: Duckworth, 1983, pp. 29-44. ISBN 0715616374


Scattergood attempts to discover what, if any, books were read by members of Richard's court through careful collection and analysis of historical documents and literary references; he concludes that, although the situation "is not a simple one . . . circumstances for the production and dissemination of literature were obviously not unfavourable," and that Gower's work was near the center of this activity.
