Including, in the best translations, familiar texts such as "The Song of Roland," St. Augustine's "Confessions" and Dante's "Divine Comedy," the book also contains the work of many less familiar writers, including prominent medieval women such as Hildegard of Bingen, Christine de Pisan and Margery Kempe. Finally, with the inclusion of many selections illustrating medieval social history, such as "The Peasants Revolt of 1381" from the Anonimalle Chronicle, "The Medieval Reader" brings the Middle Ages to life in a way that no narrative history could.
