It thus spans the extraordinary burst of English literary writing in the reign of Richard II; powerful phases of fifteenth-century literature; and the cultural revolution provoked by the split with Rome. Although potent traditions praise both 'Reformation' and 'Renaissance' as liberating movements, this book argues the reverse.
