Wolfram is one of the greatest, most under-read writers of the medieval era of literature. His works are satirical, real, and vitally important to the understanding of the medieval world. Unlike most writers of the time who were monks shut in monasteries telling tales of dragons, Wolfram was a Knight who had known war and battle and loss and sacrifice.
He rightly points out the hypocrisy of the dark ages from the perspective of the masses.
