Tuesday Top Ten: Medieval and Renaissance Literature

In last year’s Tuesday Top Ten I looked at 18th and 19th century literature, so this year I thought I’d go farther back in time to Medieval and Renaissance publications.


1.    The Divine Comedy - Dante
2.    La Vita Nuova - Dante
3.    Beowulf
4.    The Decameron - Boccaccio
5.    Heimskringla - Snorri
6.    Gesta Danorum - Saxo Grammaticus
7.    The Canterbury Tales - Chaucer
8.    The Book of the Courtier - Castiglione
9.    The Prince - Machiavelli
10.  The Unfortunate Traveller - Nashe
