Alfred is the only EnglishKing honoured with this name and is credited with various successes (thefoundation of a navy, English education system and religious revival). Hismemory looms large in the English Imagination.The medieval Life of King Alfred of Wessex purports to be written by Asser, a monk in the King''s service. This account of one of England''s best loved and most famous kings has been accepted as offering evidence on most aspects of life in early medieval England and beyond. It was used in Victorian times to create a ''Cult'' of Alfred. Alfred Smyth offers a carefully annotated translation of the ''Life'' together with a long commentary. He argues that the ''Life'' is a forgery which has profound implications not only for our understanding of the early English and medieval past but also for the nature of biography and history. This close scholarly rendering of the text allows the reader access to the intricacies of medieval history.
