Richard Barber

Richard William Barber FRSL FSA FRHistS (born 1941) is a British historian who has published several books about medieval history and literature. His book ''The Knight and Chivalry'', about the interplay between history and literature, won the Somerset Maugham Award, a well-known British literary prize, in 1971. A similarly-themed 2004 book, ''The Holy Grail: Imagination and Belief'', was widely praised in the UK press, and received major reviews in ''The New York Times'' and ''The New Republic''.

Barber has long specialised in Arthurian legend, beginning with the general survey, ''Arthur of Albion'' (1961). His other major interest is historical biography: he has published ''Henry Plantagenet'' (1964) and a biography of Edward, the Black Prince, ''Edward Prince of Wales and Aquitaine'' (1978). Recent biographical books are ''Edward III and the Triumph of England: The Battle of Crécy and the Order of the Garter'' (2013), which includes a reappraisal of the origins of the Order, and ''Henry II'' in the Penguin Monarchs series (2015).

His latest book is ''The Prince in Splendour'' (2017), a study of the role of festivals and feasts in the courts of medieval Europe looking at the events which such occasions celebrated and the organisation which lay behind them. Provided by Wikipedia
