Abstract

The article presents a literary critique of the late Medieval English romances translated and printed by William Caxton in the 1480s, focusing on their depiction of chivalric ideals, social conduct, and the morality of loyalty. Caxton's versions of "Godeffroy of Boloyne," "Charles the Grete," and "The Four Sonnes of Aymon," are each discussed in turn. Caxton's depiction of treason within the romances is particularly analyzed.
