Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Wace (c. 1110 – after 1174), sometimes referred to as... More > Robert Wace, was a Norman poet, who was born in Jersey and brought up in mainland Normandy (he tells us in the Roman de Rou that he was taken as a child to Caen), ending his career as Canon of Bayeux.All that is known of Wace's life comes from autobiographical references in his poems. He neglected to mention his birthdate; sometime between 1099 and 1111 is the most commonly accepted year of his birth.The name Wace, used in Jersey until the 16th century, appears to have been his only name; surnames were not universally used at that time. It was quite a common first name in the Duchy of Normandy, derived from Germanic personal name Wasso. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wace< Less
