Oliver de la Marche's Mémoirs of Burgundy was written over a fifty year period in the 15th century and is a real mix of disjointed episodes. The chronicle is also not without a purpose. This detailed study re-examines the Mémoires in order to determine the method beind the work's structure and design and to uncover the agenda of the author which led to particular interpretations of certain events. Placing the text within the context of 15th-century historiography, Emerson's thesis also focuses on the work's autobiographical content, its treatment of religious matters and its presentation of combat. Extracts are not translated.
