Creative and Beautiful
Reviewed in the United States on September 27, 2017
I was mesmerized by this book. Laura Amy Schlitz is a highly gifted writer. Her use of language is so evocative and creative that I marvel she could write this whole book for a group of students whose medieval school projects were still in-process. I know myself how challenging it is to invent poems (or poetic portions within prose) that are substantive and clever. Schlitz makes it seem easy, but only a wildly inventive mind could pull it off the way she did. In addition, the book is jammed with facts about medieval English society. Schlitz's research shines through. Absorbing the facts is painless for the reader, because they're tossed smoothly, almost randomly, into the stories. I love Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!, and I wish I had written it.
