Thomas Hoccleve (d.1426) served four kings as a clerk of the Privy Seal. His poetry, partly written under Chaucer's influence, includes the Regiment of Princes on the nature of kingship and some delightful occasional pieces. This documentary life is based on several years' study and offers a fresh interpretation of the poet; few Middle English writers can be so fully understood in the context within which they worked. This study includes new material and an up-to-date bibliography of manuscripts and printed material.
John Burrow is Winterstoke Professor of English at Bristol University.
