This is the first edition in more than a century and the first modern English translation of the crowning masterwork of Machaut's literary career.

Based on his extensive discussion with returning crusaders, the poet recounts King Peter I of Cyprus's successful attack and capture of the Egyptian city of Alexandria in 1365.

This volume features a full discussion of Machaut's life and career, historical commentary, extensive annotation and a select bibliography.
