A good typo to catch: 'The new Gloucester, another Gilbert de Clare, was less than ten years old at the time, and was also in Edward II's warship.'
I think I like it without the 'd', though. Now I have an image of Edward, Gaveston, little Gilbert and his sister Margaret sailing the high seas in a warship. With early cannons. Possibly Hugh Despenser is pirate captain.

Submitted today, for Masters in English Literature with a specialisation in Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of Ottawa - my thesis. With an unfortunately double-double-barrelled title, for the confusion of anyone who has to enter it into the system.


"The Untouchable Past and the Incomprehensible Present: Temporal Detachment and the Shaping of History in the Fineshade Manuscript."
Abstract:
This thesis undertakes a close study of a single manuscript of the early 1320s from the priory of Fineshade, Northamptonshire. The manuscript contains a short chronicle and several documents related to the failed baronial rebellion of 1321-22. I argue that the chronicler responds to the current situation in collaboration with the priory’s patrons, the Engayne family, with an attempt to create meaning from a time of crisis. In the process, he attempts to shape his material through patterns of style and thought inherited from both chronicle and hagiographical traditions, to make the present conform to the known and understood shape of the past. His success is limited by his inability to establish sufficient distance from traumatic events, a difficulty that many chroniclers seemed to encounter when they attempted to turn current events into meaningful historical narrative.

I appear to have written a potential article in the space of a single footnote. Again. Must stop doing that.

A curious and revolutionary new technology, the 'BOOK' offers many advantages, including a simple touch interface, compatibility across international standards, and the ability to transmit information directly into your brain.
