Dean and Boulton); BL: British Library (London); Bodl.: Bodleian Library (Oxford); CCC: Corpus Christi College (Cambridge); CUL: Cambridge University Library (Cambridge); IMEV: The Index of Middle English Verse (Brown and Robbins); IMEV Suppl.: Supplement to the Index of Middle English Verse (Robbins and Cutler); MED: Middle English Dictionary; MWME: A Manual of the Writings in Middle English, 1050–1500 (Severs et al.); NIMEV: A New Index of Middle English Verse (Boffey and Edwards); NLS: National Library of Scotland (Edinburgh).
12 Yent. “Throughout, everywhere.” See MED, yond (prep.).
25–32 On Edward’s well-documented intention to undertake a crusade, see Aspin, who notes that “Edward himself blamed the Scottish wars, not the king of France, for preventing him from going to the Holy Land” (p. 88).
41–48 This account of Pope Clement V’s reaction to the news of Edward’s death is historically plausible. A Vatican manuscript contains a 1307 sermon delivered as a eulogy on Edward to Pope Clement V (Clanchy, pp. 286–87). Further comment is provided by Aspin, pp. 88–89; and Scattergood 2000a, p. 170.
54 That is, perform the service in memory of Edward and on behalf of his soul, which follows in the next stanzas.
73 Edward of Carnarvan. King Edward II (1307–27), son of Edward I. He was crowned at Westminster on February 25, 1308. He is also mentioned in a hopeful fashion at the end of The Flemish Insurrection (art. 48), line 133. See also The Execution of Sir Simon Fraser (art. 25), line 81 (and explanatory note).
81–82 These lines are faintly reminiscent of either Aeneid 6.625–27 (Scattergood 2000a, p. 169) or 1 Corinthians 13:1 (Aspin, p. 82).
