Sinopse

'The Devil's Broker' is more than a riveting account of fortunes gained and lost by treachery and the sword - it is a lavish portrait of the fourteenth century, which Barbara Tuchman called 'calamitous'; the Black Plague that struck down the mighty and the abject with equal ferocity; the violent schism in the Catholic Church that sent the Pope scurrying to Avignon for safety; the religious mania offset by a gargantuan appetite for spectacle, luxury, and self-indulgence. Among the other titans moving through Frances Stonor Saunders's magnificent narrative are the anorexic and power-hungry St. Catherine of Siena, an ill-tempered and comfort-loving Petrarch, and a curious and amused diplomat-spy named Geoffrey Chaucer, who would draw on Hawkwood's career for his own 'Knight's Tale'.
