Life of King Alfred by John Asser( Book )

171 editions published between 1574 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Very few King's earn the appellation 'Great'. Alfred is the only English King honoured with this name and is credited with various successes (the foundation of a navy, English education system and religious revival). His memory looms large in the English Imagination. The medieval 'Life' of King Alfred of Wessex purports to be written by Asser, a monk in the King's service. This account of one of England's best loved and most famous kings has been accepted as offering evidence on most aspects of life in early medieval England and beyond. It was used in Victorian times to create a 'Cult' of Alfred. Alfred Smyth offers a carefully annotated translation of the 'Life' together with a long commentary. He argues that the 'Life' is a forgery which has profound implications not only for our understanding of the early English and medieval past but also for the nature of biography and history. This close scholarly rendering of the text allows the reader access to the intricacies of medieval history

"Asser's Life of King Alfred, written in 893, is a revealing account of one of the greatest medieval kings. Composed by a monk of St David's in Wales ... this life is among the earliest surviving royal biographies ... chronicling his battles against Viking invaders and his struggle to increase the strength and knowledge of this people, and to unite them at a time of conflict, uncertainty and war. This edition also includes other contemporary sources, including annals from the The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, King Alfred's laws, his will and extracts from his own writings"--Page 4 of cover
