Politics and Poetry in the Fifteenth Century

Scattergood, V. J. "Politics and Poetry in the Fifteenth Century." London: Blandford, 1971

Review

In examining political verse of the fifteenth century, Scattergood gives occasional attention to Gower. He provides a brief overview of Gower's work (19) and refers sporadically to Gower's views on such topics as Henry IV's accession to the throne, the need for peace among European rulers, the papal schism, and the possibility of a new crusade against the infidel. Scattergood's main focus is on "In Praise of Peace." [CvD]
