This time a poem about Laȝamon rather than an extract from his poem.
This is taken from A Presentment of Englishry. Some scholars have suggested Laȝamon had been to Ireland though the evidence is less than circumstantial. But this section of A Presentment of Englishry is speculation about one of the first named poets writing in English after the conquest. and while there’s no proof Laȝamon knew Gerald of Wales, or went with Gerald and Prince John to Ireland, a tri-lingual clerk would have been a useful addition to anyone’s household. Gerald is the source for John’s historical Irish expedition and the equally historical beard pulling.
