Norton Poetry Readathon - 8

(A chronicle of an attempted read through of The Norton Anthology of Poetry - 2,182 pages and 1,828 poems.)

Anyonymous is back again, this time as the author of a selection of Anonymous Lyrics of the Fifteenth Century. Some of these are okay and some are a little less okay, at least by my reckoning.

The best of the bunch (say I) are Timor Mortis, a title which translates to something like Fear of Death. And A Carol for Agincourt, about the English victory over the French in the previous century, a battle that forms the backdrop for Shakespeare's Henry V.
