Chapter Summary

This chapter explores some manifestations of grief, mourning and remembrance during the Hundred Years War. It focuses on the experience of those affected by the catastrophic French defeat at Agincourt, a battle which took place amidst many manifestations of quotidian violence discussed by Nicholas Wright and others. The chapter concentrates on the French chronicle and narrative material composed between the time of Agincourt and the mid-fifteenth century. It deals to a lesser extent with the literary (mainly poetic) material from the same period. The loss at Agincourt was almost immediately placed into historical perspective. For the ?Religieux of St Denis,? the sadness of all men and women was at least in part due to the realization that their age had been dishonored in the eyes of posterity.
