This book explores the intersection of the Hundred Years' War and the production of vernacular literature in France and England. Reviewing a range of prominent works that address the war, including those by Deschamps, Christine de Pizan, Gower, Langland, and Chaucer, as well as anonymous texts and the records of Joan of Arc's trial, Inscribing the Hundred Years' War In French and English Cultures demonstrates the ways in which late-medieval authors responded to the immediate sociopolitical pressures and participated in the debates about the war. The book also investigates the work literary texts performed in their cultural economy by showing how they influenced the development of French and English national identities. Contributors include John M. Bowers; Ellen C. Caldwell; Susan Crane; Patricia DeMarco; Judith Ferster; Norris Lacy; Anne Lutkus; Earl Jeffrey Richards; Michele Szkilnik; Julia M. Walker; and Robert Yeager.

Review quote

"An excellent example of New Historicism or 'critical historicism.' Many of the essays speak to one another and pick up issues only touched upon in earlier essays, or provide a complementary reading of the same works or an author's corpus. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the entire collection." -- Deborah McGrady, Tulane University "This book deals with important texts and issues that will engage a variety of scholars and fill in the particulars of a confusing period of English and French history." -- Lynn Staley, Colgate University
