Die Epistola de lamentabili statu Francie: Eine prosimetrische Allegorie aus der Zeit des Hundertjährigen Krieges
The so-called Hundred Years’ War (1337-1453) gave rise to a large number of Latin texts in contemporary France lamenting the political, military and social situation. Among them is the hitherto unedited Epistola de lamentabili statu Francie, which was ap- parently written soon after the defeat at Agincourt (1415). The text, arranged as an allegorical vision, describes the negative consequences of the inner-French conflicts and calls for an end to them. From a formal point of view, the text is impressive for its prose, which largely approximates metrical poetry.
