Blurb: Edward, The Black Prince, was the quintessential knight of romantic and heroic chivalry. A martial force of his time, but somewhat neglected by most historical and literary accounts perhaps because he never lived to be king. This wonderful presentation by Henry David Sedgwick provides a portrait of a time, a place and of a man who simultaneously was shaped by and a shaper of that time and place. The Hundred Year’s War looms large and provides the ubiquitous backdrop tapestry for this bright and colorful portrait of The Black Prince as obscure people, events and battles are brought to light.
