Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Artists, crafts people, and storytellers in the Middle Ages left a rich legacy through their accomplishments that helps us understand a bit about their lives and times. The author has carefully selected and arranged interesting information about the arts and literature, to create an excellent overview of the legacy left by the highly-creative people of the Middle Ages. Topics covered include architecture, sculpture, stained glass windows, painting and mosaics, pottery, metalwork and weaving, illuminated books, literature, famous writers, music and dance, and mystery plays. This book in Crabtree's Medieval World series looks not only at Western European art, which is most familiar, but also at art from that time in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Printed on simulated parchment paper, the book contains many colorful illustrations from Medieval sources, complemented by contemporary illustrations. The 32-page book includes a map, a timeline, a glossary, and an index. 2005, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 7 to 14.
