Abstract:

"No study of the political prophecy as a literary form has hitherto been published. The present work, therefore, opens a new field for investigation by students of literary history. In The Political Prophecy in England...the general history of the type in England, with some reference to Continental activity in the same field [is shown], and make[s] no pretense of detailed study. In fact, a thorough study of the subject is impossible at this time, for available material is too scanty and the whole field too large. I have, however, embodied in the book the results of my investigations in special subjects, such as the sources for Geoffrey of Monmouth's Book of Merlin, the date of Adam Davy's Dreams and the person of Adam Davy himself, and the interpretation of Thomas of Erceldoune." -- Preface.
