The extraordinary world so brilliantly re-created in The Hollow Crown was a turbulent and dangerous one. England was racked by famine, rebellion, civil war, and plague-with the descent of the Black Death and the horrific, ultimately futile bloodbath of the Hundred Years War-and yet, despite the turmoil, this period left a magnificent artistic and literary legacy, creating a recognizable spoken and written form of the English language. Ranging from peasant to king, from field to fortress-including the events that are part of the modern world's collective imagination, not least through Shakespeare's history plays-The Hollow Crown brings the texture of late medieval England to life.
