Why do Froissart's Chroniques still find enthusiastic readers 600 years after they were written? In this reading Peter Ainsworth argues that their strength lies in their textual richness and complexity. A chronicle of international chivairy that pretends to the title of history, it is in fact neither history nor romance, though it partakes a little of both. Rather it is a variegated narrative of vast proportions, marked by numerous shifts of perspective and narrative techniques.

Froissart's Chroniques still find enthusiastic readers 600 years after they were written. This fresh reading demonstrates that their strength lies as much in their textual richness and complexity as in their appealing subject matter--the exploits of French and English noblemen during the Hundred Years War. Ainsworth explores the literary qualities of the work and considers the range of reader responses to the text: the relative openness, ambivalence, or predictability of the writing; the relationship between narrative, ideology, and gloss; and Froissart's rewriting. The study concludes with an examination of the value and status of his final Book I in the context of the development of the whole work over forty to fifty years of literary and historical activity.
