The Last Knight: The Twilight of the Middle Ages and the Birth of the Modern Era.

Norman F. Cantor

Hardback, 260p b/w pls (Free Press 2004). Publishers price € 21,95.

A popular biography of John of Gaunt, which aims to explore the social and cultural changes of the late Middle Ages through discussion of his colourful life and career. It is hugely opinionated and unafraid of anachronism with plenty of contentious sweeping generalisations, and the lack of footnotes and rather loose structure can make for a frustrating read, although hardly a dull one.
