The late fourteenth century was the age of the Black Death, the Peasants' Revolt, the Hundred Years War, the deposition of Richard II, the papal schism and the emergence of the heretical doctrines of John Wyclif and the Lollards. These social, political and religious crises and conflicts were addressed not only by preachers and by those involved in public affairs but also by poets, including Chaucer and Langland. Above all, though, it is in the verse of John Gower that we find the most direct engagement with contemporary events. Yet, surprisingly, few historians have examined Gower's responses to these events or have studied the broader moral and philosophical outlook which he used to make sense of them. Here, a number of eminent medievalists seek to demonstrate what historians can add to our understanding of Gower's poetry and his ideas about society (the nobility and chivalry, the peasants and the 1381 revolt, urban life and the law), the Church (the clergy, papacy, Lollardy, monasticism, and the friars) gender (masculinity and women and power), politics (political theory and the deposition of Richard II) and science and astronomy. The book also offers an important reassessment of Gower's biography based on newly-discovered primary sources. STEPHEN RIGBY is Emeritus Professor of Medieval Social and Economic History at the University of Manchester; SIAN ECHARD is Professor of English, University of British Columbia. Contributors: Mark Bailey, Michael Bennett, Martha Carlin, James Davis, Seb Falk, Christopher Fletcher, David Green, David Lepine, Martin Heale, Katherine Lewis, Anthony Musson, Stephen Rigby, Jens Roehrkasten.
A double-bill of romantic comedies starring Gracie Fields. In 'Queen of Hearts' (1936), lowly seamstress Gracie Perkins (Fields) pretends to be a wealthy supporter of the local arts in order to get a part in an upcoming production. As her deception leads to ever more complications, she eventually wins out, charming one and all to become the star of the show. In 'Look Up and Laugh' (1935), Fields stars as Grace Pearson, one of several clerks in a small town market threatened with closure when the land is purchased by a department store chain. Gutsy Grace rallies the market traders to prevent the takeover - a protest aided by the timely discovery of a Royal Charter, which enables the stallholders to declare their market place an autonomous nation. This was the third film appearance for a 22-year-old Vivien Leigh, who has a bit part.
