Time Referents in The Regiment of Princes
by Karen Smyth


Bibliography for Concordance of Time Referents in The Regiment of Princes

The titles below are divided into two sections. The first are studies on Hoccleve’s works and general studies on fifteenth-century literature. They do not have as their focus the study of time, but when studying the artistic strategies of Hoccleve’s markings of time, these titles have been influential in my consideration of his writing style. (My study was dated 2010). The second section acts as an indicative bibliography of some of the most influential studies on time in the medieval period, with a particular focus on studies that treat time as a cultural construct, as literary strategy, or linguistic influences.
