Summary:
After the late 14th century, English literature was fundamentally shaped by the heresy of John Wyclif and his followers. This study demonstrates how Chaucer, Langland, John Clanvowe, Margery Kempe, Thomas Hoccleve and John Lydgate, far from eschewing Wycliffism, viewed it as a distinctly new intellectual resource.
