Description

Can Lydgate be viewed as his own link in the chain of literary history? Or do we heed Lydgate’s own words and recognize that Chaucer’s influence cannot be surmounted? This debate gets at the heart of fifteenth century English literature: how do we deal with self-proclaimed ‘translators’ and ‘compilers’ and their relationship to their sources?
