Subject: [MR] Poets of the late 14th and early 15th century


Do you want to do the poetry challenge at Coronation? If you do and you are looking for a place to start in researching poetry written in the late 14th or early 15th century, I've pulled together a short list of some poets of the Late 14th and Early 15th Century along with links to their poetry and minimal info on the poet. Have fun! I'm sure you will find many more poets and poems if you look.

The Pearl Poet (Name unknown. DOB and DOD unknown.)

It is believed that one poet wrote Pearl, Cleanness, Patience and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

These poems are contained in a single manuscript identified as British Library MS Cotton Nero A.x., Art.3 that dates to the end of the fourteenth or beginning of the fifteenth century.

However, the poems themselves are believed to date to the late fourteenth century and were written in Northern England.
