"Like a bird of biographical prey, Ackroyd identifies his subject in an iconic image of Chaucer addressing the court of Richard II and swoops to investigate" -- Iain Finlayson The Times "Extensively researched and elegantly written" -- Sally Cousins Sunday Telegraph "Full, lively and eminently readable" -- Laurence Phelan Independent on Sunday "Ackroyd's series of short lives bodes well: handy, attractive, well illustrated, useful" -- Anne Wroe Sunday Times "This elegantly written and nicely judged biography offers a welcome reintroduction to a much-underestimated figure, and gets Ackroyd's new series of Brief Lives off to a promising start" Scotsman
