Did They Have Fan Fiction in the Middle Ages?


John Lydgate is the worst medieval offender that I can think of off the top of my head. For the prologue to his Siege of Thebes, he wrote himself into Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

And so while the pilgrims were
At Canterbury, well lodged one and all,
I don't know what to call it,
Luck or Fortune -- in the end
That led me to enter into that town

Small things, links and miscellany, sparkling with light. Sam's tumblelog.
