Historiography: Nicholas Trevet’s Transnational History.

Suzanne Conklin Akbari and James Simpson, eds. The Oxford Handbook of Chaucer (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020), pp. 368-85.

Considers Nicholas Trevet’s Anglo-Norman chronicle and discusses "the ways in which Trevet’s larger vision of history is reflected in Chaucer's writing." Catalogues the various models for history available to and used by Chaucer, including Geoffrey of Monmouth, Ranulf Higden, and Orosius, before moving on to "moments of intensification in Chaucer that correspond to moments of intensification . . . in Trevet."
