From the text:
“Too often, it is overlooked or its meaning blurred. It comes between the brightness of the 1300’s—Chaucer’s time—and the time of Elizabeth I. Looking into it, we may be so dazzled by the two bright centuries which bound it that it is a dim space of time with no exact shape or clear colors in it. Yet the whole century was active, practical, strong, unique, humane, searching and changing, mystical.”

Percival Hunt (1878-1968) was professor emeritus of English at the University of Pittsburgh.
“A rich appreciation of the people of the 1400’s—their commerce and songs, their nobility in battle and their emergence as a nation with its own language and culture. . . . The simple elegance of Dr. Hunt’s style is a precise tool . . . and the book should delight scholar and general reader alike.”
“Mr. Hunt has performed the difficult feat of bridging a long gap in time, of bringing close a period which for most of us has been remote . . . enabling us to see how the people of England lived in the fifteenth century. His eye is sharp for the significant and revealing detail, his deduction convincing.”
—New York Times
